Beskrivning av hemmet vi erbjuda att byta bort

My friends often remark that visiting my apartment is as restful as visiting a spa. All the rooms are decorated in a neutral taupe colour with mirrored furniture, Asian art and vintage/antique treasures punctuating the decor of each room.

An upgraded the kitchen is large for an apartment. I rarely cook, but I love to entertain; so I have everything you will need, including a new range, for your home away from home. Also, there is a large worktable in the kitchen where I design and make jewellery (a passion) and more artwork (another passion).

The master bedroom has a Louis XV - style dresser with ornate mirror, a tall book case, a cozy armchair, and a large TV. There are two closets with mirrored doors. The adjoining bathroom is bright, clean and relaxing with a bathtub/shower and a large vanity with mirrors, mirrors, mirrors & more art. i almost forgot the best part of this bedroom is the bed.....only 4 months old, mechanical bed where the head & /or the foot of the bed can be raised/lowered with massage....perfect for reading, watching tv or just relaxing & enjoying the penthouse view from your bed..

The second bedroom has the same colour scheme but is a little more contemporary. It has a single bed, a large dresser, a shelving and a desk. A great deal of storage provided with the extra-large closet. All the furniture is white, as well as the curtains on the window which allows the light to filter in, yet provides privacy from anyone who might be on the balcony.

In addition, I have a single, folding bed, with a very good mattress which is "hidden" behind the oriental screen in the livingroom. It can be easily set up in the second bedroom. Or using the livingroom's oriental screen, you can turn the livingroom into another bedroom.

All my linens and towels are white and a variety of pillows and blankets. I like that hotel look in the bedrooms and bathrooms; it all adds to the light and airy feeling of every room.

My penthouse suite is located on the top floor of a 17-storey building which has 3 elevators. The public areas of the building were redecorated only 3 years ago and now give the entire building the look of an upscale, boutique hotel.

If rent a car, you can use my underground parking spot.

As my guest, you will also have full access to the building's gym, whirlpool, sauna, and library. Make sure you pack your bathing suit for the whirlpool and sauna. Unfortunately, visitors cannot use the swimming pool or tennis courts unless accompanied by residents. I will try to make arrangements with a neighbour to invite you whenever it's possible.

With floor-to-ceiling & wall-to-wall windows, you will enjoy the stunning view, day or night. During the good weather, the balcony becomes a relaxing oasis with comfortable, outdoor furniture and lots of potted flowers and fresh herbs (balcony plants will need watering). Please feel free to use the fresh herbs....the more you pick, the more they grow. Sliding doors from both the livingroom and the master bedroom make the balcony easy to access, and add to the spacious feel of the suite.

On sunny days, the balcony remains cool, as it does not receive direct sun. It becomes my living room & dining room where I enjoy my morning cup of tea, surf the net, read, eat, entertain or watch the sunset. The evenings are especially beautiful, with thousands of twinkling lights blanketing the area below. Lanterns & candles are nestled among the balcony's many potted plants.

My building is in a park-like setting, very rare in the city. Lots of mature trees, flowers & pathways to explore on an early-morning walk.

Grannskap

Beskrivning av vårt grannskap och omgivning

What you'll discover when you visit any place in North America is that because we are young cities/countries, we tend to prefer the historic architecture and neighbourhoods of Europe. Whereas, the Europeans tend to prefer more modern living environments. Also, because of the long winters, we want to be out-of-doors as much as possible. We Canadians travel to Europe for the history, the art and the culture. But when we're home during the summer we are enjoying a continuous stream of events and festivals. Everything from Summerlicious, where you can experience a 5-star restaurant for a minimal price, to the Jazz Festival, to Canada's Wonderland (a huge water and amusement park), to Ribfest, to Caribana, Shakespeare in the Park, Toronto Island ......the list is endless. Most venues are free or have minimal costs. We don't have the great museum experiences of the European cities, but......if you are interested in "fun", Toronto is the place for you.

I live in the north part of the city, where you can enjoy going out to the countryside or going downtown within 15-30 minutes. The bus stop is a 3-minute walk from my front door. There are 2 large malls and excellent restaurants all within 15 minutes. The world famous Yorkdale Shopping Centre is 15 minutes away, by car and the gigantic Eaton Centre is 45 minutes away by public transit. BTW the public transit system is fully accessible, with elevators and escalators at every subway stop.

We capitalize on being a very multicultural city. Every week there is some sort of ethnic festival, like Taste of the Danforth (celebrating the Greek culture).My area is extremely multicultural with English-speaking residents, like myself but also with many eastern Europeans, Asians & Persians living in the area......large Asian and Italian supermarkets 15 minutes away; also Persian, Korean, Jewish groceries and restaurants, nearby.

There is excellent local shopping, with 4 strip plazas, just a few minutes walk away: banks, grocery stores, pharmacies, cafes, clothes cleaners, shoe repair, hairdressers, manicures, fast food, chinese food, pizza, & delis, and any other service you may need to enjoy living here.

If you are a visitor/tourist to Toronto, a sprawling city, the best place to stay is my location. My apartment is close to 5 main highways for easy travel to: Niagara Falls, the USA, Stratford Festival, and the Caledon Hills, to the west; Montreal, Quebec & Ottawa to the east; cottage country & Algonquin Park to the north.....of course, Lake Ontario is to the south.

The tourist area of the city is easily accessible by public transportation and UBER. I never drive downtown.....too congested and the parking is very expensive. Our subway system takes you north & south (right to the lake & Centre Island) ...... or east & west for Greektown, China Town, the Italian area, Korea Town, Little India, etc.

Attraktioner

Våra tips om platser att gå och saker att göra när du bor i vårt hem

Just across the street from my building, you will find everything you need for your stay: a large grocery store, bakery, pharmacy, several banks, restaurants, shoe repair, coffee shop.......

Canada's Wonderland is 30 minute ride by public transit. You can see the rollercoaster from my balcony. Every holiday & weekend, you can watch the fireworks display comfortably from my balcony.

And right next to Canada's Wonderland is the largest discount mall in eastern Canada.... Vaughan Mills....with many outlet stores from New York City.

As I am located on the edge of the city, so there is easy access to the cottage country. I would definitely recommend spending some time, perhaps by using points, in the Muskoka area.

In the immediate area, walking, there are several excellent restaurants: chinese & middle eastern, plus a great bakery.

Yonge Street is the longest street in Canada & runs from Lake Ontario (the southern boundry of the city to the far north. The bus at the front of my house, takes you to Yonge Street in five minutes. Going south, you can walk the North York downtown, from Finch down to Sheppard. Here you will find, restaurants, outdoor concert areas, a major theatre/concert hall, movie theatres, shopping, and a major library. Further down the subway line, the next great waling area is from Lawrence Avenue to Eglinton Avenue. Then you hit the St. Clair Ave area. Further down, walk a long walk from Bloor Street down to Queen for shopping & restaurants.

There is really too much for me to describe here. When you decide to come, you can tell me what your particular interests are & I will leave specific areas you should explore.

If you're not out shopping or sightseeing, you can enjoy my building's gym, indoor whirlpool, sauna, ping pong or racquetball. We do have an outdoor pool & tennis courts; however you need to have the photo identification, of an owner, to use them. I will try to find a friend who will be willing to take you to the pool as a guest.

The building & property has 24-hour security and security at the gatehouse, at the entrance to the grounds.

My apartment would not be suitable for young children. Older children, teens are welcomed if accompanied by parents or other mature adults.

I will leave a detailed notebook with (almost) everything you may need or want to know.....from where to dispose of the garbage to the best local restaurants & summer events. And I have great neighbours who speak French, Russian, Chinese, and Hebrew, as well as English; and will only be happy to assist you.
