Act quickly, and the charm of chic residential London can be yours in downtown Toronto at Dupont Terrace Luxury Townhomes. Immersed in a neighbourhood that has a character all its own, this limited collection of just seven freehold townhomes introduces a new level of elegance to the Dupont streetscape for prices starting from only $699,000 and immediate occupancies available. A brilliant example of industry icon and visionary Paul Anisman’s penchant for creative planning and design, these new residences feature classic Georgian architecture and urban chic interiors. President of The Canadian Equity & Development Corporation, Anisman took inspiration from his other prestigious accomplishments, including Fairfield Estates in King Township and Trinity Park Lofts in Toronto. Like those properties, Dupont Terrace is a distinguished addition to its surroundings and upholds the highest standards of quality in design, craftsmanship and attention to detail.
“Classic architecture is a passion of mine,” Anisman says. “These townhomes include clean, contemporary interior spaces framed by an historic façade - a design style that is popular in England, in the exclusive areas of London such as Mayfair and Knightsbridge. For the exterior, we used imported American brick to create an authentic Georgian look, similar to what we did at Stafford Terrace. This melding of the old and new is popular with sophisticated young professionals, especially in this evolving location.”
The striking townhomes are situated on Dupont Street at St. Clarens Avenue, west of Dufferin, in the midst of some of the city’s trendiest shops. For home furnishings that defy the ordinary, South Hill Home and Angus & Company are down the street. Grab a coffee or lunch at Starbucks, and for something sinfully delicious, Stubbe Chocolates is nearby. The local Loblaws and Sobey’s are open 24 hours, and the subway is a short walk away. Now is the perfect time to purchase a new home in this exciting emerging area, where property values are destined to increase.
The contemporary interiors at Dupont Terrace are appointed in the fine taste for which this developer is so well known. “Nothing escapes Paul’s refined eye,” says Mitch Lepine, Director of Marketing for Canadian Equity & Development Corporation, “and we are using many of the same trades as some of Toronto’s most luxurious high-rise condominiums.” The three-storey townhomes come fully loaded with such a high level of features and finishes, that there is little need to upgrade. Over-height doors on the principal floors emphasize 9’ ceilings, and each bedroom features a full bathroom.
The best way to appreciate the potential in these layouts is to tour the furnished model, which has a youthful vibe. “We went for clean, contemporary lines in the furnishings with a monochromatic theme (tone on tones of white), along with small vibrant burst of colours for contrast. The look is inviting, sleek and uncluttered, with some unexpected surprises.” The open-concept living/dining room has a gas fireplace, dark hardwood throughout and extra-deep contemporary baseboards. A white dining table and sideboard contrast with the floor and dark brown sofa, and animal print accessories such as the area rug and framed dog photos add touches of whimsy.
According to Lepine, “The kitchens are slightly different, yet they all have an island that is ideal for cooking, as a breakfast spot or for friends to hang out while owners prepare food.” Kitchens also come complete with five stainless steel KitchenAid® appliances. In the model, light cabinets are accentuated by the stainless subway tile backsplash. Both the kitchen and spa-style bathrooms have rich granite countertops, and the bathrooms feature floor-to-ceiling tiles and frameless glass shower doors as standard. The third-floor bedrooms have light furnishings highlighted with touches of colour. In one, brilliant turquoise night table lamps flank the bed’s white headboard. In the other, leaf-patterned lamps and paisley drapes complement the open twig-look headboard.
The townhomes also have a spectacular roof top terrace. At approximately 500 square feet, this outdoor area is a fabulous extension of the living spaces. It has a gas barbecue connection, hose bib, lighting, planters and breathtaking city views to the south that include the CN Tower. A bold orange sofa and umbrella on the model terrace join sculpted trees, a barbecue, dining table and chairs - all with room to spare.
