A Short Term 2Bed Upper Suite In Prime Riverdale, Steps To The Danforth

This suite is located in a 1960s semi-detached purpose-built two-unit Swell Dwell located in Prime Riverdale is just five streets from the Broadview Subway Station and The Danforth. This is a family-friendly neighbourhood with fantastic shopping amenities and sandwiched between two incredible lush parks, 10 Tennis Crescent has a Walk Score of 86 out of 100.

This location is “Very Walkable” so most errands can be accomplished on foot. Located six doors east of Broadview Avenue at Riverdale Park East, it's a one minute walk from the 504 KING and the 505 DUNDAS streetcars or just walk up to the subway station which is four stops east of Yonge and Bloor. Loblaws Grocer is steps away, as is the organic Carrot Common, Shopper's Drug Mart and liquor store. Nearby coffee shops include The Rooster Coffee House, Si Espresso Bar and Café Fiorentina and, get this... there are 107 restaurants within a 15 minute walk, located on The Danforth, Gerrard East and on Queen Street East in hip Leslieville.

Riverdale Park East, an 18 hectare park at the end of the street is popular for winter tobogganing and the panoramic views of the downtown Toronto skyline. The park features two ball diamonds, three multipurpose sports fields, a running track, seven tennis courts, an artificial outdoor ice rink and ball hockey pad, a picnic area, a children's playground and an outdoor pool. There's a naturalized area at the north end of the park, a bridge over to Cabbagetown's Riverdale Farm, and links to the Don Valley - and Evergreen Brickworks - for cyclists.

Thus Upper Suite, a refreshed and refinished two-bedroom hideaway, is available for short or long term! (Second Bedroom also has a desk and can be used as an office!) Furnished with fun n' functional furniture, it features wood floors throughout, a renovated kitchen with gas cooking, two well-proportioned bedrooms, an recently-upgraded 4-piece washroom, 4 solatubes which provide additional natural light, and walk-out to a deck from the Master Bedroom. Enjoy a large smart TV with Rogers Ignite and access to all streaming services, plus wi-fi, and a bluetooth speaker.

*Available as a short term furnished rental. The rent is inclusive of utilities, wi-fi and Ignite.

For those who are seeking a rental which offers the ideal trifecta of location, style and value, you know finding a space which balances your wishes, wants and needs is no easy feat. Especially if you’re seeking to lease a space in the centre of the city that has some personality instead of all that ubiquitous big box blandness.

About Me
Steven spent his 20s waiting tables in a pasta shack, renovating houses for profit, and studying at the University of Victoria and York University gaining a theoretical knowledge on housing, design and culture. His passion for all things housing is rooted in his education. His training path started with focus on History of Art and Architecture which fused into a Canadian Social History Degree, focusing the migration patterns of the city's cultural groups, with an emphasis on how they influenced Toronto's housing market from 1860 to 1970. This was followed by an Urban Studies Degree where his thesis, funded by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, focused on Gentrification in South Riverdale in the 1980s. Next was a Graduate Degree in Environmental Studies that researched the development of Adaptive Re-use Conversions into loft condominium living, which included a fascinating psychographic analysis of its residents. Steven admits to possessing a healthy obsession on 'Housing as Symbol of Self'. For over two decades Steven has operated in the real estate sales, marketing and development industry, including spearheading Toronto's Innovative Space market back in the early 1990s. Steven has been involved in the concept and conversion of over a dozen adaptive reuse conversions into loft condominiums, and renovated several freehold and condominium properties. Today, Steven's boutique division of Bosley Real Estate Brokerage, Ltd, Urbaneer.com, assists clients in most every facet of their housing needs, including buying and selling, new construction, renovation or style enhancement.
