The city’s growing townhouse trend
The townhome and row house trend is gaining momentum in the city, and many are looking to the compact living spaces as an alternative to condos and the ballooning fees. Herewith, two Midtown options currently on the market.
TOWNHOUSE IN YORKVILLE
The three-storey row house at 44 Belmont St. may be more than 100 years old, but you wouldn’t know it from the inside. The interior has been completely renovated for a more modern feel, with built-in seating and cabinetry that maximizes floor space on the 12-foot by 108-foot lot. The slim build includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a third floor deck overlooking Ramsden Park. The staircase has glass railings that help to open the space up. The property’s backyard patio is surprisingly spacious in length, and the detached onecar garage behind it faces onto a laneway. This condo alternative is on offer for 1.899 million with Royal Le Page J& D Division, Brokerage.
SKINNY END UNIT IN DAVISVILLE
This two-and-half-storey townhouse at 4 Brownlow Ave. is an end unit located in the heart of Midtown, just southwest of Eglinton Avenue East and Mount Pleasant Road. This convenient hideaway boasts three bedrooms, three bathrooms and high ceilings. Hardwood floors can be found throughout the main rooms of the house, and a large skylight overlooks the living and dining area. The renovated kitchen is fairly roomy, with a cosy eating area. Plus, a stone patio leads to the backyard and perennial garden on the 17-foot by 150-foot lot. The property is on the market for $1.299 million with Royal LePage Partners Realty, Brokerage.
The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and a large skylight overlooks the main floor dining area. This end unit townhome has a one-car garage below ground and a spacious stone patio in the backyard.
The front door opens onto the home’s small but modern kitchen with heated marble flooring. The quaint exterior clad with red brick and decorative wood door hints at the home’s heritage value.
