88 Ulster Street - A fantastic four bedroom in a fabulous South Annex location, with swank upper level finishes, and a basement with many possibilities...
Behind the bright yellow door is welcoming and practical tiled entryway that leads to spacious and bright open-concept living and dining rooms with soaring ceilings. The very organic-appearing wide-plank oak hardwood flooring is beautifully contrasted with modern grey wall tones, and intact original plaster mouldings. The super-sleek kitchen is more than great looks; it offers hygienic and robust quartz countertops, a gas stove, breakfast bar, backyard walkout, and ample floor space.
The upper level offers a rare four-bedroom configuration, with each room offering comfortable dimensions and lots of natural light. Wide-planked oak hardwood is continuous throughout the upper level rooms and hallway. A serene modern bathroom with frameless glass enclosure and subdued porcelain tiles completes the package.
The well-configured basement offers an uncommon 3 points of access. Entry to the lower level is achieved through weather-protected separate entrance stairwell at the front of the house, through the backyard stairwell and laundry room at the back of the house, and through a conventional interior staircase from the main floor. This lower level has ample ceiling height, granting very comfortable head clearance. A 5-pc washroom, a spacious eat-in kitchen with gas stove, and new broadloom make this an all-around comfortable living space.
This Harbord Village home is well-positioned at the edge of South Annex, a quick few steps to both Little Italy and Kensington. As you would expect in a prime Downtown Toronto location such as this, 88 Ulster Street boasts a Walk Score of 90, and is blessed with a wealth of fine and casual dining, eclectic boutiques, market food shopping, lively cafes, and cultural sites, all within walking distance. Everything from 24 hour grocery and drug stores, to a dog park, running track, Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, OCAD, Queen West shopping, the ROM and AGO are quickly reached by foot, bicycle, and TTC. The very active Harbord Village Residents Association brings even more to this vibrant neighbourhood with year-round special events and seasonal farmers market. For the urban commuter, both the Bathurst subway stop and the 506 College streetcar are a brief walk, and the Harbord Street bicycle lanes are a mere block away.
