Condo of the Week: 630 Queen St. East
Sometimes it's hard to look past the standard white walls and floor to ceiling windows of new condos in the city, but this low key property on the top floor (there's only eight!) of this new boutique condo building in the ever-growing Riverside neighbourhood has a ton of potential.
An expansive open concept layout, floor to ceiling windows and birch toned engineered hardwood flooring make the space feel even bigger than it is and there is an amazing amount of natural light. Upstairs you'll find more large windows, another seating area and access to a private 250 square foot terrace. Right now there's a lot of white walls, but being barely a year old it's not unexpected and it's nothing a coat of paint or feature wall can't change.
The one thing that catches the eye for anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen is that this one's not very big, but that's an easy fix by adding a rolling butchers block or island. If you like to entertain, the kitchen layout here also helps keep your guests in one space while still being a part of the conversation because, let's face it, every party ends up in the kitchen anyway.
Sq ft: 1319 + 250sq ft terrace
The commuter. Not only is there easy access to streetcars that will take you downtown or to the Bloor-Danforth subway line, but the DVP and Gardiner Expressway are easily accessible and close enough you don't need to sit in traffic to get to them, but far enough you won't be burdened by the noise.
MOVE ON IF:
You're looking to be in more of the action right this second. Riverside is a great community, but it's developing at a slower pace. That's great for anyone who's grown up in the area, but for the young professional who wants to be in the mix and enjoy what the downtown nightlife has to offer, this may not be what you're after - though the Queen streetcar will take you to and fro 24 hours a day.
