Just the Facts
About the Property
Let there be light and more light. This two-storey, open concept penthouse loft practically glows. The main floor is the open concept living/dining kitchen area – perfect for entertaining. The kitchen seamlessly integrates into the space. The large centre island offers prep space and the perfect place to chat over a glass of wine, or morning coffee. The first of two bathrooms is also on this floor.
Upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom and family room/den. It’s hard to believe, but when you walk up the stairs you’ll see for yourself that this floor gets even more light. The spacious master bedroom has ample storage. You could use the den as the perfect home office with spectacular views, or configure into any number of other uses, from media space, to hobby room to studio space to guest area or second bedroom. From here, you can walk out to the glorious south-east exposure terrace – perfect for plants or catching some sun. You’re above the treeline, and surrounded by glass panels so you have unobstructed sightlines to the Junction below and the rest of the city beyond, including the CN Tower. Plus there’s a gas BBQ hookup and plenty of room for seating — it’s like having an additional room for half the year. The second floor spa-like bath rounds out this exceptional space. The unit includes one parking spot and there is visitor parking onsite.

About the Neighbourhood and Lifestyle
Located at the corner of Clendenan and Dundas West, which is the eastern gateway to, and guardian of, The Junction. If you’re looking for a neighbourhood that avoids ‘cookie cutter’ and embraces the idiosyncratic, you’ll feel right at home here. This off-the-cuff quality has attracted a variety of residents and created a strong sense of community and identity. Classic brick stone residential homes, revamped industrial-finished lofts, and new builds, are all available in the area – making the options as unique as the people who inhabit them.
On any given day, residents of the area can be found at a variety of cafes (Cool Hand of a Girl), taverns (Henderson Brewing, The Gaslight), restaurants (Vesuvio), boutiques (Mjolk), and parks. A reflection of it’s working class roots (and perhaps because of the end of prohibition) there are no shortage of pubs and unique start-ups in this entrepreneurial, and just down-right ‘awesome’, part of Toronto.
If the Junction Triangle “proper” grows tiresome, residents just head-on over to visit neighbouring hot spots in Roncesvalles Village and High Park. And yet, it’s very hard to feel disappointed in this unique, and highly sought-after, slice of the city--an area that is consistently touched with the brilliance, innovation, and smart design, traditional of a modern-day rebirth.
Construction, new business, and support ‘shop local’ mentality will continue to drive flocks of buyers to this neighbourhood--a neighbourhood that embraces the young, the old, families, newlyweds, swinging-singles, loners, and socialites – all at once.
