Perfectly capturing the essence of "post-modern," 2 Old George Place -- new to the rental market -- is an abode to behold.
Nestled in the Rosedale-Moore Park neighbourhood, the architecturally-significant estate by John B. Parkin serves every comforting home need, but in a chic, contemporary package.
The home's dramatic and open-concept main living area is balanced by cozy woods and inviting colour schemes throughout -- while the structure serves spaciousness, it also envelops you in warmth.
Sprawling approximately 3,000 sq. ft above grade, the 2-bed, 3-bath estate couldn't be more perfectly positioned. Situated just north of the Park Drive Reservation Lands, it's a few short steps from Mt. Pleasant Road, with the conveniences of both Rosedale and Yorkville just moments away.
A short walk leads to Summerhill Market -- a one-stop shop for natural and low-waste goods. Dinner can be enjoyed at STK or Bar Reyna any night of the week, while grocery shopping becomes a joy when it's done at Whole Foods or Eataly, both of which are close by.
And of course, Yorkville's Mink Mile will beckon on a rainy day; Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burberry, and other luxury names wait along Bloor Street to be explored.
But while the neighbourhood is swoon-worthy, the home itself has us captivated all on its own. Boasting a 2-storey vaulted ceiling with a glass pyramid skylight at the entryway, your first step into this house will have you catching your breath.
The open-concept living area makes for ease of entertaining; guests can glide through the space without missing a beat. And whether enjoying canapés in the kitchen or mingling by the sofa, everyone will be able to appreciate the views -- with floor-to-ceiling glass both upstairs and on the main floor, the beautifully-landscaped ravine garden out back is perfectly framed.

For more quiet moments, the primary bedroom serves as a spa-like retreat. Spacious, airy, and boasting its own gorgeous views, this chamber beckons for unwinding at the end of the day (not to mention it will also be a dream to wake up in).
A main floor powder room plus a guest bedroom with its own ensuite continue to make entertaining easy; when it gets late, family or friends can feel comfortable and welcome settling in for the night.
Our Favourite Thing
This address is like a concept art-piece -- it's hard to separate one element from the whole package. But if we have to choose a favourite thing, it's going to be the backyard. Private and serene, the lush landscaping overlooks the ravine lands below, and provides a true sense of escape from the city's bustling energy. And, thanks to massive windows throughout the home, this sense of nature flows through the abode's interior, too.
Complete with a private drive and a double garage, this home is made for someone who appreciates beauty and balance, and is ready to infuse their day-to-day with the serenity both bring.
