Living. An Art. A Classical One. - 6 Prince Hal Cres

* SOLD *
Although we live in a world so ever fickle and a city moving so very rapidly, there are things that more or less stay the same - something that we can anchor on.  For instances, we have always been attracted and gravitated to a certain quality.  Some call them “timeless beauties”.  A concerto written centuries ago still moves and touches us today.  An architecture built from a different era with narrower technical possibilities remains impressive.  A picture or a portrait of a belle from a distant time and land continues to radiate and draw our breath away.  There are something compelling about them.  As such, they prevail.  They are just CLASSIC.

6 Prince Hal Cres possesses many of these unique appeals.  It situates on the north end of Tam O’shanter Golf Course with all sides, except the front, facing the course green.  This comes with a large pie-shaped lot, measuring 50 ft in the front and about 125 ft in the back.  This is a neighbourhood of notable individuals, including many residents of 6 Prince Hal Cres. Then, there are these floor-to-ceiling arch windows across the house front.  The party size deck and .... The owners have catered the house with extensive care and details.  The result?  A home of  this unusual quality that is more than the total of its sum.  Let this exceptional property speaks for itself.


Can you envisage yourself living and appreciating what this home has to offer?  Why not pay a visit, book a showing now.

Living the New Urbanism in Cathedraltown

If you have ever driven past Markham on Highway 404, between Major Mackenzie Dr. / Elign Mills Rd. and bordering Richmond Hill, it is almost impossible to miss this stunning and majestic structure. 


This is the Cathedral of Transfiguration – the only church in North America consecrated by Pope John Paul II.  This is the core of Cathedraltown – a town conceived based on the idea of a European cathedral town (notice the Georgian architecture?).  Donald Buttress who worked on the restoration of Westminster Abbey is the project designer.

The planning of Cathedraltown takes a New Urbanism design approach: the Cathedral being the neighbourhood centre where piazzas, open spaces, shopping, lake and other meeting places surround; all are accessible within a walkable distance with attractive streetscapes; range of homes and jobs created; and built in support for sustainability (smart growth), i.e. adoption of Energy Star standards, bike lane throughout... and etc.  Words cannot really describe, lets the slideshow does the talking.

  
Is this your kind of neighbourbood?  Contact me for more info.

Living in the Heart of North York - 3 Pemberton Ave #702

* SOLD *
Do you know North York became a part of the Metropolitan Toronto in 1998.  The City of North York had branded itself “The City with Heart”.  It is the most diverse area of Toronto.  It is home to 2/3 of a million people from all walks of life.  It is also the centre for commercial, cultural and entertainment activities.

Mel Lastman Square / North Civic Centre is built at the centre of North York.  This is the gathering place for public events, i.e. farmer markets, outdoor concerts, skating in the winter … and etc.  Around the squares, there stand the skyscrapers of commercial offices, government buildings, school board headquarters.  EmpressWalk and North York Centre Malls are there to fulfill your shopping and entertainment appetite.


Also in this area between Finch and Sheppard, cultural endeavors are budding all around.  Toronto Centre for the Arts, North York Central Library, Gibson House Museum, Claude Watson School for the Arts, and Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts are some of these venues.

If you enjoy food like I do, North York along Yonge Street (one of the world longest streets) is a good area to be.  There are many cuisine and restaurant offerings (the collection of options is a feast of its own).  After meals, there are as many choices for you to chill, hang out and entertain.

3 Pemberton unit 702 locates right next to TTC Finch Station.  In fact, there is direct underground access to TTC, Subway and VIVA stations.  Imagine, only 20 minutes away from downtown and the entire subway network outside your door mat.    

Please find the particulars of the unit in MLS # C1925164.  Here is a snapshot and link for your easy reference.

Do arrange a showing pronto, if interested, as there have been enquiries and interests as soon as the unit went on MLS.  (Yes, we continuously work toward having blogposts released soon after MLS posting.  Please do check on my listing here and here as there would have more, newer listings, Thanks).
