South Rosedale, Castlemere, Toronto, ON, Canada
Prepare to be charmed! Awarded Toronto Heritage Building status, The ‘Castlemere’ is a period mansion block located within one of South Rosedale’s prime neighbourhoods. Situated a moment’s walk from the Rosedale subway station, excellent shops, restaurants and a number of top private and public schools, Suite 301 is tucked away amongst character homes and tree lined streets. One can appreciate both the quiet, park-like setting and most convenient location.
From the moment you enter there is a feeling that this is indeed a very special place.
This elegant, sun filled condominium penthouse is a veritable ‘Oasis in the City’. There are stunning and commanding westerly views from the lounge, second bedroom and terrace; the latter with its wrought iron railings forming the perfect setting to unwind with a glass of wine and dine al fresco at the end of the day.
Gleaming bleached oak hardwood floors and a coved ceiling with sparkling crystal chandelier welcome you to this top floor suite. A glazed door to the terrace and picture window fill this space with natural light which illuminates the architecturally distinctive ceiling mouldings.
The open and airy feeling of space continues from the west-facing bay window to the nine and a half foot ceilings with crown mouldings. Open concept in nature, the living room communicates with the dining area, an absolutely ideal arrangement for entertaining. Again, bleached oak hardwood flooring is present throughout the unit, recently overlaid with a high quality underlay and elegant broadloom. Walls throughout the unit have been redecorated in neutral Farrow and Ball estate emulsion colours.
The Master bedroom comfortably fits a king sized bed, and a wall of custom built-in wardrobes and drawers have been sympathetically designed to complement the style of the period building. Another large window brings brightness and light into this space, but for evening the dimmable twin wall mounted light fixtures provide a special ambience. Entry to the full ensuite bathroom is gained through a sliding solid wood pocket door. An exterior window once again provides natural light, supplementary to the dimmable light clusters. Heated tiled floors can be programmed for comfort, walls are completely tiled with white tumbled marble and granite forms the countertop of the vanity. The combination of a rain shower head and deep bathtub is enhanced by Carlo Frattini faucets and taps—overall a most luxurious space in which to start and finish the day.
Greet each morning in the sun drenched breakfast room, perfectly positioned to afford views of the city or double it up as a third bedroom or bright studio/den. Versatility is the key word for this room, with its glazed French entry doors and a discreet blind to provide privacy as needed.
The kitchen truly forms the heart of this open plan within the apartment, where cooking, socializing and entertaining radiate. Solid wood custom cabinetry provides abundant storage and the stainless steel backsplash provides a stylish statement. The generously sized breakfast bar, continuous with the granite countertops provides the focal point for entertaining and food preparation, as well as a casual spot for pre-dinner conversation. An array of stainless steel appliances including an ultra-quiet Bosch dishwasher complete the gourmet kitchen.
Discretely tucked away behind closed doors is the space for a stacked washer and tumble dryer. Additionally, in the basement of the building, there are full size and no cost to use washers, tumble dryers and a large laundry tub, should those be required.
The second 3-piece bathroom boasts floor to ceiling travertine marble tiles with programmable underfloor heating to keep feet cozy in any season. Zucchetti taps and faucets complete the feeling of luxury with accent lighting creating a special environment.
At the south end of the suite, positioned for privacy, is the second full size bedroom. A bay window with far reaching westerly views provides a very separate room for family or guests alike, and a built in bookcase will hold many items without intruding in the living space.
The elegant terrace is the ultimate outdoor City sanctuary space. Propane BBQ friendly, full-length electric awning for shade/rain/privacy, and planters abundant with flowers create an oasis to unwind and relax.
A spacious private use locker, located in the basement is ideal for all the seasonal decorations, suitcases etc that are essential but not necessarily needed every day. There is an exclusive use parking space, located to rear of the building. Security lighting is present for the comfort and peace of mind of residents.
In all, Suite 301 is the picture perfect penthouse pied-a-terre that has been updated for sophisticated, modern living while retaining the character and presence so often lost in today’s newer constructions.
