St. Clair Village: The Perfect Property at the Perfect Time
In the COVID-19 era, loving where you live has never been more important.
Long gone are the days when home is just the place you drive back to after work. For many of us, it’s now where we live, work, laugh, love, and play — full time. Not to mention, if you’re a parent, there’s the chance you’re also homeschooling kids for the foreseeable future, too. And there are no easy fixes; with dining out options severely limited because of pandemic restrictions, we’re spending much more time in the kitchen, honing our own chef skills.
Long story short, you want to live somewhere that you’re comfortable in 24/7 and that has enough space to stretch out — both indoors and out — no matter what life (and potential COVID lockdowns) throw at you.
Enter: St. Clair Village. On the northside of St. Clair Avenue West between McRoberts and Innis Avenues, and Caledonia Road, this boutique development of 41 homes is truly the perfect development at the perfect time.
With three- to five-bedroom designs, offering impressive options between 2,015 and 3,040 square feet, the elegant homes of St. Clair Village are the best of both worlds for people craving the conveniences of urban living but also desire the spaciousness of the suburbs.
With these luxury semi-detached homes from Frontdoor Developments, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for space. Starting with the ultra-modern exteriors, the designer feel goes far beyond, well, the front door. High-end finishes include quartz countertops, glass panel railings and satin-chrome door hardware that will make you feel more like you’re living in a chic downtown loft than a family home. But you are living in a family home, something you’ll be reminded of often as the natural light streams into the airy spaciousness of your living space and bounces gently off of the wide plank engineered hardwood flooring that runs throughout the property.
But it’s the kitchen where the high-end feel of these homes becomes most apparent. The European-inspired open concept plan lends itself perfectly to young and growing families, sharing meals and making memories together. And let’s face it: The upscale Mielle appliances certainly don’t hurt the meal prep process, in fact, they do nothing but enhance it.
And while yes, these stylish homes have contemporary designs and finishes and plenty of room for living comfy with the fam jam (hello, finished basement!), you’ll also have what so many properties in the city lack: ample outdoor spaces.
Each unit has an expansive terrace or vibrant backyard with decking. There are also sunny front gardens perfect for games with family members, or maybe a little vegetable garden or reading away an afternoon on a lounger. Rear lane garages with parking for two compact cars for every unit ensures you’ll never be tied up searching the street for a parking spot at the end of a long day, or worse, with a trunk full of groceries.
Speaking of surrounding streets, the neighbourhood is stacked with parks, green spaces, rec centres, and family-friendly amenities. That includes the nearly 13-hectare Earlscourt Park, with its sports fields, basketball and volleyball courts, children’s playground, wading pool, walking paths, and even a fenced dog park. Looking for more family fun? There’s also the Joseph J. Piccininni Community Centre and Giovanni Caboto Rink, Pool, and Tennis Courts.
The neighbourhood is also perfect for foodies and urban explorers alike as they seek out new experiences. St. Clair Village is in the heart of the city, in a super walkable enclave stacked with foodie gems like the Corso Italia strip and bakeries like Tre Mari, not to mention independent grocers and eateries like Cano and Frank’s Pizza House.
In short, you can have it all: A house in the city with a backyard and space for the whole family, plus affordability, a great location, and a contemporary aesthetic.
And with St. Clair Village, housing perfection isn’t something you’ll have to wait years for. It’s really right around the corner. Construction is launching this fall, with projected move-in dates before the end of 2021. With prices hovering around $1.5 million, what are you waiting for?
Just make sure you save us some space on that backyard lounger for when visitors are allowed again…
