West End Lifestyle at the DoorSend This Listing To A Friend
Why live in a glass box in the sky when the best of west end living is right at your door in this almost 700 square-foot well-designed 2+1 unit at King Towns. Walkthrough a private laneway and up a few steps (yay – no elevator) to the front door of what looks and feels like an NYC-brownstone. The thoughtful layout makes the most of its square footage feeling much larger than condos of similar size.
A renovated and upgraded kitchen overlooks the open concept living space and features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There’s updated flooring throughout the unit. And even though the heart of the west end is just outside the door, if you’re feeling like a cozy evening inside, just turn on the gas fireplace and snuggle up on the couch with your favourite human, pet or a good book.
The main bedroom is big enough for a Queen bed and the walk-in closet has organizers that make the most of the space. The second bedroom makes a perfect office for those working from home and wanting a separate work/living space. It could also make an excellent kid bedroom. Create an excellent dining/eating area or auxiliary working/living space in the large den. There is also a balcony to escape for some fresh air in between Zoom calls. And there’s no need for a car with a 91 Walkscore but there is underground parking as well.
King Towns is a little oasis neighbourhood nestled between Queen and the King Highline, Liberty Village and Parkdale where the residents represent Toronto and share an appreciation for community and a love for west end living. The park across the street is hidden and private to the local residents. There’s room for dogs and kids with a splash pad, playground and green space. Neighbours greet each other and block parties abound.

Parkdale is a happening part of ‘the six’ that is home to a diverse wealth of ethnicities, income brackets, and occupations. The eclectic, artsy, and entrepreneurial, makeup of this area of Toronto has attracted hoards of young professionals, and young families, looking for that ‘village vibe’ in the thick of the big city. Steps to the rapidly gentrifying and developing King/Dufferin corridor as well as the new Longo’s, Canadian Tire, Shoppers and Winners a quick walk away. King Towns has quick and easy access to public transit, highway, shops, restaurants and cafes already, but as the area grows there will be even more. Even better? It’s a super quick walk or bike ride to the Lake Ontario boardwalk.
