House of the Week: 98 Old Colony Road

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 12, 2013

98 Old Colony Road TorontoSecret passageways, a rolling ladder, indoor-everything, and premium finishes. But what is this — no golf simulation studio?! Well, I suppose prospective tenants of 98 Old Colony Road will have to make due with just an indoor pool, games room, sauna, squash court, wet bar, drums room, and more. Sacrifices, you know? While you can get the whole package for just shy of $8 million, I'd be happy with the winding bookcase and hidden built-in passageway. If only expired TTC tickets counted as legal currency.

New in Toronto real estate: 707 Lofts

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 7, 2013

707 Lofts Toronto707 Lofts is a new Bloorcourt development that will replace a Dovercourt funeral home and a row of adjacent houses. In other words, not for the ghost-fearing condo buyer. Designed with loft living in mind (read: it's a new structure), this project has seen much community input and developers have eventually settled on a plan of five floors instead of eight. Amenities are minimal and so too is unit square footage, but the location can't be beat and the price is just about right. Here is a closer look at 707 Lofts.

Reincarnated, if you will, into a three-bed, three-bath million dollar property, this split-level home has everything you could want from a modern take on medieval just so long as you don't mind the stark flat ceilings. Or thousand-dollar monthly maintenance fees.

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 6, 2013

airport hotels torontoThe best airport hotels in Toronto don't have all the attractions and perks of downtown on which to fall back, so the hotel itself better actually impress. These hotels try to ameliorate the often stressful task of taking off with onsite dining, parking packages, airport shuttles, and business services, with proximity to Pearson usually serving as the main point of attraction. The best airport hotels in Toronto will typically cost you somewhere in the range of $100-$200 per night, which is a relatively small price to pay considering the cab fare from downtown Toronto all the way to Airport Road.

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 5, 2013

21 Boswell Avenue TorontoDown a whopping million dollars since its listing back in October, this Yorkville-area home is now being offered for a bargain basement $6,950,000.

Or those who like their home to make a statement — whatever. Here's what you'll get for 13 per cent off.

This week on DineSafe: Culture's, Dumpling Queen, Moonlight, New Sun BBQ, Papaya, Wrap & Roll

Posted by Robyn Urback / March 5, 2013

DineSafe TorontoThis week on DIneSafe didn't call for any closures, but it did see a healthy collection of restaurants teetering on the edge of acceptability. Yonge south of Bloor was hit with a couple of conditional passes, with Wrap & Roll, Dumpling Queen, and Papaya all handed their respective yellow cards. The Friendly Greek — no stranger to the DineSafe low list — again found itself with a less-than-stellar report, as did Moonlight Restaurant over on Dundas West. Here's a look at some of the DineSafe highlights from this week.
