The Place

A two-bedroom downtown condo home blending history and heritage with modern features and amenities.

The Details

With its close proximity to the downtown core ― as the crow flies, you’re about 500 metres from the gates of Victoria Park ― you might be surprised to find a property as secluded and quiet as this, a two-bed, two-bath condo unit in Raleigh House. Behind the fence of this small, gated enclave is a unique and thoughtful historic conversion project, which transformed a few old properties into a high-end community of 11 condo units, nestled in the trees and backing onto the Thames River.

Unit #4 in this development is a 1,750-square-foot condo that features a large open-concept living area and high-end luxury finishes, 10-foot ceilings and a wall of windows leading out onto a gorgeous terrace. As you enter the main living space, to your right is the living room, the highlight of which is a cozy gas fireplace that ties right into a built-in bookcase. At the other end of the unit you’ll find the a chef’s kitchen with marble flooring and loads of custom cabinetry. The focal point of the kitchen is the large stone-countertop centre island, which has seating for at least four and includes a double sink. In the rest of the kitchen you’ll find plenty more countertop space, a high-end gas stove with a built-in pasta faucet, a custom tile backsplash, wine fridge, built-in microwave and dishwasher. There’s also an additional dining area.

Both bedrooms in this unit are comfortably sized and have plenty of windows and closet space. The primary bedroom features a walk-thru closet, leading to an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and a standalone tub.

The outdoor features of this property will be high on the list of selling points. For one thing, you have the large, full-length terrace at the back of the unit, overlooking the shared pool area. Accessed via one of several doors with transom windows in the main living space, it offers a space to extend the living area of the home in both summer and winter. And then there’s the shared outdoor amenities in this development, centering around a sparkling pool, perfect for warm summer days. There’s covered patio space to relax, a cook house to fire up some steaks, and a small tiki-bar style deck. There’s a huge and very lush landscaped garden to explore, with a number of little seating areas for you to discover and hide out in.

It’s one of the most tranquil and secluded properties you’ll find downtown, and it comes with the advantages of condo ownership: maintenance, snow-clearing and shared amenities are taken care of.
