Most Notable Features
Generously sized suites: One nice thing about these Toronto condos is the generously appointed floor plans. Starting around 800 square-feet for a one-bedroom, you’re getting almost twice as much space as you’ll find in newer condos in CityPlace and the Waterfront. Plus, there are even bigger suites here ranging up to 2,100 square-feet. No that’s spacious!
A hushed setting: Southampton is tucked back from the traffic and noise of The Queensway on a small side street with lots of trees surrounding it. It’s an ideal residence for anyone seeking a quieter, hushed place to call home that still offers easy access to the thrills of the city.
Indoor salt-water pool: Among Southampton’s impressive amenities, all of which share a Victorian style of decor from the billiards room to the library and lounge, residents will enjoy most of all the indoor, salt-water swimming pool. Stay active all year round, splash about with friends and family, and relax in the sauna.
With a high-end condo at 1 Ripley Avenue, you will live right beside the Humber River valley and only a short trip to Toronto’s most well-known and popular green space, High Park. It’s a 400-acre outdoor recreational space with lots of open playing fields perfect for picnics and pick-up soccer or Frisbee, tennis and basketball courts, children’s playgrounds, natural walking trails, as well as education and cultural facilities and even a zoo. The surrounding neighbourhoods from Roncesvalles and the West End Junction to the Bloor West Village and Swansea are all largely residential with a growing community of cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops, not to mention some well-established neighbourhood classics. Some nearby restaurants worth checking out include Mamma Martino’s Restaurant for classic Italian dining, Sushi & Thai on Bloor Street, and Bloor Jane Restaurant for a long running diner with all-day-breakfast.
For your weekly groceries and household needs you can shop along The Queensway at Sobeys and NoFrills, plus other independent markets. And Bloor Street West also offers a wide range of stores and specialty shops.
