House of the Week: 15 Gilead Place
Nestled between King Street East and Eastern Ave, 15 Gilead Place is hidden on one of those quintessential Toronto streets that instantly sparks the curiosity of those passing by. Though perhaps making your way through a secluded lane way in the dark of night is not your ideal walking-home-from-the-bar steeze, fear not, this alley is not a crack-magnet. The townhouse complex is surrounded by great neighbourhood spots such as Gilead Cafe, Morning Glory and Weezie's along with new arrivals such as Eco Stems and the second location of Body Blitz. For many, this is undoubtedly a beautiful example of modern living in Toronto. Environmentally sound, centrally located and furnished with a unique flare and style, there's not really much more you could ask for.
Though you might think that $1.3 million is perhaps an unreasonable price tag for a three bedroom townhouse (with roof-top terrace, beautiful hardwood floors, three storeys and a series of custom-crafted furnishings), I think it's about time we all accept that living in a beautiful, modern home in Toronto will yes, cost you a serious wad of cash.
Address: 15 Gilead Place
Lot Size: 23.03x42.48 FT
Bedrooms: 3 + 1
The aforementioned rooftop terrace is lovely
Unique wide-plank hardwood flooring
High (really, really high) ceilings
Third floor bar fridge for lazy evenings and maybe a raging party or two
Modern finishes that allow you to feel as though you live inside an Ikea.
You get to live in Corktown! One of Toronto's most underrated neighborhoods.
A young, busy family with some money in the bank. People who live a fast-paced life and don't have time to think about redecorating a new home. And, really, this is a fit if space isn't your first and foremost priority â density is the way of sustainable urban living.
MOVE ON IF:
If you want a yard with grass. Or if you don't have $1.3 million to blow on a home. That's about it. If you don't got it, don't complain if other people do.
What do you think â would you buy this home if you could?
