Down by the Lakeshore, at the base of High Park’s Grenadier Pond, is a west end waterfront community that seldom gets credit for how charming it really is. Quietly creeping up on the Parkdale/Mimico border in the first decade of the new millennium, forever changing the city skyline, there are a string of condo developments among the newer additions to the area that are beginning to peak the interests of even the most discerning Toronto hipster, one of which is the Windermere By The Lake. Behold this noteworthy suite with 2 bedrooms plus den, and 2 bathrooms (because, somehow, having two just feels so much more adult). With a spacious and open concept floorplan that boasts nearly 1,100 sq ft of space, featuring pre-engineered hardwood floors throughout, stone counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, modern appliances, and a panoramic view for the gods. To top it off, it also comes with underground parking and locker. Building amenities include Concierge, Gym/Exercise Room, Visitor Parking, Party Room, Pool, and Sauna. Waterfront living rarely looks so divine, Toronto-stylez! Far more accessible via TTC than one would imagine, and only a short walk to some of the city’s finest walking trails and bike paths. Watch out west enders, we’re starting to sprawl, and this lovely little waterfront pocket is about to get rediscovered. Offers anytime.xo
