In case you haven’t noticed, I like to provide as much detail and information as possible to you because, an informed homebuyer is the best person we (the home sellers and myself) are looking to be the next owner.
Below, you’ll find answers to a survey that I ask all of my home selling clients answer prior to listing thier homes for sale.
When we first saw the house, these are the things we liked best.
This townhouse is unique and very attractive with large windows (lots of light), a spacious 2 storey townhouse feel, with a loft bedroom overlooking the main level. The beauty of a 2 storey condo townhouse is that you can have your own privacy on another level and also enjoy the amenities that a condo offers.
Street level access convenience (groceries, moving, buying furniture), massive gym, grand party room, games room (pool), nice warm swimming pool & hot tub, big outdoor guest patio BBQ area, convenience to the shopping mall/ groceries, convenience to TTC.
These are the features we have grown to appreciate while living here.
Walkable distance to groceries, shopping mall, food court, library, TTC.
These are the things we think are good about our neighbourhood.
It is a very attractive, convenient, safe and community based pocket that has easy access to the highway 401, easy commute to downtown, close to universities/ colleges and also a very friendly area.
Best way to use public transit from here.
Walking distance to subway/ RT line. It is very convenient.
Your favourite neighbourhood walk (maybe a park, etc.)
Frank Faubert Wood Lot, Hand of God Dog Park, Thomson Memorial Park, Morningside Park, Rouge Valley
The neighbourhood’s best organized sports leagues (soccer, hockey, etc.)

Your favourite neighbourhood shops

The mall also has postal services, dental, optical, currency exchange and some major banks located in the mall.
Which restaurants or fast food places are the best around your home?
All your favourite restaurants all in one place from great family, date night and friends hang outs, including Milestones, Moxie’s, Jack Astor’s, Scaddabush, Canyon Creek, Boston Pizza, Baton Rouge. Quick and easy grabs include a full food court with various eating options.
What aspect of the home’s room layout works particularly well for you?
The living room is a great space, open and spacious with large windows and a lot of sunlight. It’s a wonderful space for entertaining.The entire layout is great. Usually in a condo, the bedrooms are on the same floor, but in a townhouse, the bedrooms are on a separate floor, so you can still maintain your privacy when you have guests or when you need space.
I love the kitchen because…
the wine fridge is amazing. It is open to the living/ dining area and a great entertaining space.
We have done these improvements which are bound to be appreciated
We replaced the carpet and changed it to modern high end wide plank laminate flooring on the upper level and also the stairs, and matched it on the main floor as well. A fresh coat of paint to brighten the walls and modern style baseboards to complete the look. We wanted a fluid cohesive flow of energy and vibe throughout the entire house.
Don’t forget to tell the buyer about…
This is a gem! Townhouses in this area rarely come for sale. This is the best building, highest value building in the area. In all the comps, this building scores the highest dollar amounts. You will not get another unit in this area with all these amenities, convenience, local shops, all in one place. The RT/ TTC can bring you midtown and the new LRT can bring you midtown. Best location!
Adjectives which you think best describe your home
Warm, comfortable, modern, bright, homely, cozy, spacious.
Any other special details or hints that you would like to share
This is the perfect size for someone who is looking for a home and still want the amenities. It is an upgrade from a condo, yet not having to do all the house maintenance and work. It’s also a great work from home space. The YMCA also offers daycare services from 7am-6pm.
