Built in 2003, 64 Logan Avenue was one of the first of Manorbrook Homes’ new developments south of Eastern Avenue. Previous projects include townhomes just north of Queen on the west side of Pape Avenue, and more recently, the conversion of the Ayer Hotel at the corner of Morse Street and Eastern Avenue. Their commitment to quality craftsmanship shows in each and every home.
From the moment you walk in you’ll notice the attention to detail. A beautiful granite foyer leads to pristine oak 3/4″ flooring which fills the approximately 630 square feet of the open concept main level. It’s an excellent flow which provides lots of room to live and entertain.
The kitchen is exquisite, yet so functional for even the pickiest of chefs. One would only expect a stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, and convection gas stove with ventilation hood. The European made built-in electric convection oven makes cooking a joy. Serve your guests in the dining area for a more formal occasion, or open up the French doors to a private deck with an even more secluded patio for a relaxed affair.
Have your family or friends stay the night if you wish. The second floor consists of two large bedrooms with gorgeous decorative French doors, laundry and a four piece bathroom. Currently the second bedroom is being used as a den. The television, audio system and electric fireplace are included as a bonus. And, if it is truly a full house, there is ample space in the finished basement (also approximately 630 square feet) including a roughed-in kitchen, laundry and a four piece bath.
The third floor is your own master retreat. A lovely skylight illuminates the staircase which leads you to yet another deck with its eye-popping views of downtown Toronto, an over-sized 5 piece bathroom replete with a jetted tub and, of course, the master bedroom and walk-in closet.
Truly, there is so much more to 64 Logan Avenue. There is 100 amp service, a detached single car garage, natural oak spindles and bannisters, concrete block demising walls between the homes, forced air gas, cat 5 computer network, copper wiring throughout, gas bbq hook-up, roughed-in central vacuum, close to the DVP and Gardiner Expressway, minutes to downtown, the fabulous shops and restaurants on Queen Street East and last, but not least, great neighbours in a rapidly developing neighbourhood!
What’s happening on Logan Avenue south of Eastern and vicinity?
To put it simply, so much is going on these days. Many residents are anticipating the re-development of Weston’s bakery and the adjacent parking lot, located at 462 and 459 Eastern Avenue respectively, with the hopes that their property values might rise again. The application for 462 Eastern Avenue asks for a seven-storey mixed-use building with a grocery store at street level and 266 condo units with 288 underground parking spots.
For 459 Eastern Avenue, the application asks for a non-residential building fronting onto Booth Avenue and a mixed-use building fronting onto Eastern Avenue. If we bookend this proposal with the re-development of the West Donlands and potential re-development of the former Toronto Film Studios then we would see a much different neighbourhood than currently exists provided all clears the City of Toronto’s planning department and the OMB. It’s very exciting.
But it is already an exciting neighbourhood! The neighbours are truly lovely people. Every year this section of the street hosts the “Alley-oop” extravaganza in the summer, the “Christmas Crawl” in winter and an annual street sale which brings everyone out. No one is a stranger here and an open-armed welcome is what you should expect.
