Luxury 2 bed custom NEW EXECUTIVE legal suite minutes to DOWNTOWN and steps from lake

The flat is a beautiful, brand new, spotless two-bedroom apartment. We have tastefully furnished it for a long-term stay, with two Queen sized bedrooms, each with a custom built-in closet; a spacious open-plan living room and large eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and all new stainless steel appliances (large fridge/freezer, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, and small appliances like coffee machine, toaster, iron). The bathroom has Quartz-topped custom cabinetry and includes a bathtub and shower. The flat is a fully-legal, self-contained private apartment with lots of windows allowing natural light to flood in, 8’ ceilings and attached private laundry. The flat is on the lower level of a custom new home on a beautiful tree-lined street in an established and quiet family neighbourhood. The suite has its own private entrance which, coupled with private laundry facilities, ensures that there is no contact with anyone outside your household.
The flat is pleasant and comfortable and comes fully equipped with furniture, linens, towels, cookware, dishes, flat screen television. Wireless internet and cable television are also included.
Located in the heart of Mimico By the Lake - part of the City of Toronto, and voted one of the top ten neighbourhoods in Toronto (out of a total of 140 neighbourhoods) by Toronto Life. The National Post refers to Mimico as "Toronto's best kept secret" and the Toronto Star and the Toronto Sun have both published recent, positive articles about Mimico, with the Sun referring to Mimico as “the new go-to community”. Easy walking distance to the quiet sanctuary of the lakeshore of Lake Ontario and its walking trails, biking trails and many playgrounds; yet steps away from the hip eclectic Mimico Village. A coveted No Frills grocery store is just a 6-minute walk away; the West End's legendary San Remo bakery is a 15-minute stroll away (although people travel from all over the GTA to shop there); Humber Bay Park West, a picturesque lakefront sanctuary of trails, picnic spaces and lake views, is 10 minutes away on the 501 streetcar. Also is Sam Smith park, a wooded peninsula jutting into the like with an ice-skating trail and fireplace in winter, walking trails and birdwatching in summer, and spectacular sunset views of Toronto's skyline year-round - all easily accessible by streetcar, a short drive or even on foot. These spectacular neighbourhood resources are what make Mimico a hidden gem, a small town in the big city.
So many transit choices. The GO train - you are ten minutes’ stroll from the Mimico GO station where you can get to Union Station in seventeen minutes. Alternatively, the bus stop is around the corner and gets you to the subway in ten minutes. The third option is the iconic 501 streetcar which will take you directly downtown and runs just a couple of blocks from the flat.
Or you can drive. There is always street parking available outside the flat and you are just a few minutes’ drive from the QEW/Gardiner Expressway as well as the 427, connecting you directly to downtown, Pearson International Airport and the entire Golden Horseshoe.
Please note that although this is a "basement" apartment, it is unlike any other basement apartment you will find in Toronto. It is extremely rare to find a fully legal, fire safety inspected house apartment in Toronto. We designed it to be a warm and inviting home for friends and family members to stay in, and the difference really shows.

Quiet, responsible, professional tenant(s) sought. The apartment is suitable for a maximum of two tenants.

We regret that the flat is strictly NON-SMOKING and we are not able to receive pets.

About Me
Hello - we are a family of two Chartered Accountants and our five children. We just built our dream home in the charming lakefront community of Mimico (part of the City of Toronto) but we are currently in BC - work brought us here. We are interested in renting our absolutely gorgeous, brand new, executive two bedroom legal suite to a professional or academic small family who will enjoy our home and treat it as they would their own.
