Living in a city as urbanized as Toronto means that you’ll never want for a coffee shop. And if you fancy a late-night slice, you don’t have to look far. Green space, however, is a little harder to come by.

That’s not to say there isn't nature to be found within the city limits — you just have to know where to look for it.

Enter: 145 Roxborough Street West, a contemporary, two-storey apartment located in an intimate four-unit co-op building. And at its doorstep, you’ll find one of the largest (and oldest) parks in downtown Toronto, Ramsden Park.

For families and singles alike, the benefits of backing onto Ramsden Park are plain — the 13.7-acre park features a ravine, playgrounds, basketball courts, an off-leash dog area, and a large outdoor skating rink, which doubles as a tennis court in the summer — but it is just one piece of this property’s appeal.

If you venture into the unit itself, you’re greeted by a bright interior and an airy layout. Hardwood flooring runs underfoot throughout, while natural light spills into the home through picture windows and a pair of sliding doors, which lead outside to a sun-soaked terrace. The dining area is located just off the front door.

The main level is also inclusive of the kitchen, a breakfast area, and the living room — all of which overlook the neighbouring park — as well as the primary and second bedrooms.


The primary bedroom, a sweet retreat, touts a three-piece ensuite bath, built-in shelving, and private closet space.

From the main level, a set of stairs leads down to a lower-level family room. The lowermost level also accommodates a second kitchen and dining area, a studio suite that can be accessed from the rear terrace, and space for another bedroom, if need be.

In addition, residents of the building have access to a separate parking garage with dedicated storage space for each unit.

Our Favourite Thing

Location, location, location. Our favourite part about this property is how central it is, just minutes away from grocers, shopping, museums, and schools. And even though it’s smack-dab in the middle of the city, the area still manages to give off something of a suburban feel, making it the perfect spot for families looking to settle down without leaving Toronto behind.

145 Roxborough Street West is located on a tree-lined street in the heart of Toronto. It’s just a short drive (or transit trip) away from some of the city’s top attractions, including Casa Loma, the Royal Ontario Museum, and St. Lawrence Market.

And did we mention the property is pet-friendly? Truly, what more could you ask for from a Toronto home?
