Roncesvalles is beloved for its European ambiance and small-town feel, and nestled within this neighbourhood is 1 Columbus Avenue -- an intimate four-storey building that consists of just ten suites.
Re-constructed and meticulously maintained, this heritage building is home to a newly-listed boutique loft of perfect proportions.
Available now, the modish penthouse that is Ph401-1 Columbus Avenue boasts over 2,000 sq. ft of refined living space, built to a 2-bedroom + den design.
This loft boasts a spacious and open concept floor plan, direct elevator access, and three exposures which provide tremendous natural lighting throughout; penthouses -- by definition -- are luxurious, and this listing is no exception.
Upon entry, residents are met with tall ceilings, double California closets, heated floors, wall-mounted shelves, and mirrors, all serving dual purposes: to be aesthetically pleasing and functional, simultaneously.
The living room features oversized windows that provide treetop views, a 50” gas fireplace with heat distribution, a built-in wall-mounted 75” Sony Bravia television, and a 285-bottle capacity, temperature-controlled glass wine cellar.

As for the dining room, aside from the art deco chandelier and 80” wall-mounted console, views remain unobstructed, facing both south and east. And of course, the focal point on the main floor is the floating iron staircase, which sits elegantly in the centre of this suite and leads up to the rooftop terrace.
Our Favourite Thing
While the iron staircase is the main attraction inside, it's what it leads to that puts the cherry on top of this incredible penthouse. Spanning over 1,200 sq. ft, this listing's rooftop terrace is home to two fire pits -- perfect for social gatherings -- and a full outdoor kitchen that'll make entertaining a breeze. This is where we want to spend our summer nights.
What’s more, the indoor kitchen features Wolf and integrated Sub-zero appliances, and a breakfast bar with seating; fit for a chef, those who have a passion for cooking will be sure to appreciate this food-centric space.
As is true for most rooms in the house, the den boasts ample storage. The space is complete with north and east exposure, a triple wardrobe, and linen closets. The primary bed, meanwhile, comes complete with oversized windows, north-facing views, California closets with shelving, and a full-motion wall-mounted 65” Sony Bravia television; indeed, the space is nothing if not rejuvenating.
The ensuite is just as serene, with a double vanity, quartz countertops, a free-standing soaker tub, a walk-in shower with a rainfall shower head, and frosted windows for extra privacy.
Private, opulent, and overflowing with je ne sais quoi; this suite effortlessly suits an urban lifestyle.
And speaking of way of life, 1 Columbus is situated within close proximity to High Park, the waterfront, and lastly, the beloved shops and local restaurants along Roncesvalles. For those commuting regularly, the Bloor TTC line and UP express are both within a short walking distance; getting to work or even further pastures from this address? A breeze.
From its ideal neighbourhood location through to its luxury finishes and chic aesthetic, this penthouse listing is one of a kind. And if you act now, you could soon call it "home."
