Purchasing a new home in Toronto often feels like playing the waiting game. If you buy during the pre-construction phase, it can take years for your condo or townhome to materialize. This is a source of frustration for many buyers, who must continue renting or, in some cases, pay a Phantom Mortgage prior to occupancy. With this in mind, developer Kingston Beach Inc. set out to build a townhouse project that would allow purchasers to experience the final product before making their decision and then, move in right away.
The Winthorpe Modern is a boutique building of eight custom crafted homes in the Glen Manor community of the Upper Beaches. Currently, there are two completely furnished model suites, one for each basic floor plan, where purchasers will be able to see the beauty of the design and feel the quality of the features.
The residences boast street-level front doors and private garages that open to the front foyer. Expansive windows, smokey black brick and aluminum details lend a modern edge to the design of the streetscape, and private garages are hidden within the envelope of the building. This incredibly efficient use of the site results in low maintenance fees for townhome purchasers.
Interiors are characterized by a smooth ten foot ceiling and an elegant floating staircase in the main floor principal room. The warm engineered European wide plank white oak floors anchor the space while nine and 20 foot ceilings give the bedrooms a feeling of intimacy and drama. The master bedrooms are equipped with two custom, built-in armoires and guest bedrooms sport a frosted glass wall panel and a stunning two-storey window or a skylight.
No expense was spared in the chef-inspired kitchens. Purchasers will be impressed with top-of- the-line stainless steel appliances, including name brands like Liebherr, AEG and Panasonic. The rustic modern cabinetry by Miralis features a soft-close system, as well as drawer inserts for easy organizing. Waterfall style countertops are crafted from white quartz, creating a bright and clean aesthetic. Plus, walk-in pantries with automatic ceiling lights provide ample storage for food, supplies and other small appliances.
The custom home feel continues in the spa-like bathrooms, which are clad in large-format porcelain wall and floor tiles imported from Italy. Soaker tubs feature hot air jet ThermoMasseur and back warmers, while the frameless glass showers boast Grohe Thermostatic systems with a rainheads and handheld sprayers. Luxurious details such as heated floor systems, vessel sinks with two faucets and high gloss cabinetry are all standard for the discerning purchasers of The Winthorpe Modern.
Up top, roof terraces have western downtown and lake views, as well as gas hookups for warm weather barbecuing. The building is topped by a green roof, which helps to offset the urban heat island effect and moderates the interior temperature during the summer months.
