Welcome to Riverdale! Our newly, completely renovated 106 year old house, with its high ceilings and mode is ready for you to enjoy. Our space is great for couples, business travelers, solo adventurers, and families. Pets are welcome.
We are situated close to downtown, but in a warm, friendly community. A minute or two's walk down our tree lined street will get you to the subway, restaurants, shops, grocery store, the Danforth Music Hall and both Riverdale and Withrow parks!
The space is a large, bright 2 bedroom, one bathroom space, occupying two floors of a centennial semi-detached house with a modern renovation. It is a charming mix of old and new. Its bright with large windows in every room. The kitchen has beautiful quartz countertops, stainless appliances with a ice maker in the fridge, and a Nespresso coffee maker for your morning cup. The living room has a large comfortable couch and a 32" TV with Fibe cable. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both of which have fans and ample closet space (one of which is cedar lined). The full bathroom is on the second floor. If you would like access to the backyard and/or the BBQ please let me know, and we are happy to accommodate.
We are very accessible by all forms of transportation, and it is very easy to get to all your destinations.
Subway: The Broadview subway station is a two minute walk.
Street Car: There is a street car stop just off the end of the street, providing a lovely scenic ride to downtown.
Cycling: We are only a few minutes ride down to some fabulous trails which lead all the way along the Don River, or to downtown. Experience Toronto in a completely different way!
Driving: While we are easily accessible by car, just a few blocks from the highway, we don't have a driveway. Parking in our neighbourhood is by street permit, which we can help you obtain for the city's small fee. Most often, parking will be able to be found right in front of our house, but occasionally, it can be tricky and you may be a few houses down. We have lots of tips and tricks to help you out (we've lived here for 14 years!) We also have lots of familiarity with driving downtown and throughout the outskirts of Toronto, so are happy to help you with any information that you need.
Interaction with Guests
We live very close by, and such are available to you needed. Feel free to join us, if you would like, for a beverage and a chat. We are just a door knock or a text away!
We have the most amazing neighbourhood- shops, restaurants, cafes, a wonderful casual so close to downtown!
The Danforth is a vibrant, exciting neighbourhood to be in. We are situated between both Withrow (check out the farmers market on Saturday morning, Dusk Dances, Shakespeare in the park, catch some ball hockey action or tobogganing in the winter) and Riverdale (the most beautiful views of the Toronto skyline, a bike path down to the waterfront, or up the Don river, and the best toboggan hill in the city). There is plenty of restaurants to suit any palate - from traditional greek food, a fabulous fish and chip shop, wine and cocktail specialties, to Mexican and tapas, pubs and family-style restaurants. There are incredible coffee stores to sit in and absorb the pulse of the neighbourhood (Si, just at the end of our street, the Rooster, just a few blocks down right across from Riverdale park, and my favourite hidden gem - MoGC for the true connoisseur- a longer walk, or short drive from us).+ More
