The Details

Warm, Unpretentious & Understated

You know those details that don’t need changing because they’re perfect just the way they are? High ceilings, tall windows & a room (or two) with a view. Warm, unpretentious & understated. A beautifully crafted North Riverdale home for those fresh beginnings – whether your first family memories, meaningful new moments or a taste of nostalgia for your own childhood home. A cardinal throwback to a classic Toronto neighbourhood – a community that embraces “that can’t put your finger on it” old-school magic while inviting in all that’s fresh & new!

Highlights include a spacious open plan with ample natural light, inviting outdoor spaces for early morning coffees or lively dinner parties, well-proportioned rooms, an optional basement suite & a coveted parking space for one (or even 1.5) vehicles. Just two minutes to Withrow Park & the best of the East End!

The Neighbourhood

The neighbourhood

Welcome to North Riverdale

A perfect blend of hip stores, generous green spaces and distinct architecture is what makes Toronto’s South Riverdale and Distillery District neighbourhood so covetable. For starters, the city’s uber-trendy Leslieville pocket is nestled within the area, which is booming with heavenly brunch spots, bistros and lifestyle boutiques. The historic Distillery District, made up of stunningly restored red-brick industrial buildings, is not only an appreciated departure from city life, but its pedestrian-only cobblestone streets call to mind a simpler time when cars were considered a luxury. The artisans and restaurateurs who’ve set up shop here share a similar appreciation for the district.
