About the Building
At the premium location of Bay Street and Davenport Road, right across from Jesse Ketchum Park, 1331 Bay is an established residence with a prominent and handsome corner façade of reflective glass. Developed in 1985, this eight-storey boutique building has just 24 suites. The impressive entrance lobby showcases a 40-foot-tall atrium with sculptures and a garden, and the building offers a wide range of amenities including a car wash bay, gym, party room and rooftop perennial garden with gas barbecues and gorgeous sunset views. The building is well managed and many of the large mechanical systems were replaced within the last year. An onsite superintendent helps to ensure that everything is run efficiently. At this central location residents have their choice of three subway stations–Bay, Yonge & Bloor and Rosedale—all just minutes away. The world-renowned Mink Mile is a few minutes south where Holt Renfrew, Eataly, luxurious hotels, designer retail and the Manulife Centre, with a theatre, shops and services, are all situated. Five minutes east the village of Yorkville offers numerous boutiques, art galleries, Whole Foods, and fitness studios including Equinox and Catalyst Fitness. The Summerhill/Rosedale neighbourhood is a few minutes north and also offers numerous restaurants, charming shops, and the famed flagship LCBO. Nearby Ramsden Park is 14 acres of green space and also has tennis courts, ice skating, an off-leash dog park and a playground. The Rosedale trail and ravine system offers a nature escape with native trees and wildlife and leads to the popular Evergreen Brick Works. There is no need for a car as even the city’s Financial District and University of Toronto are within walking distance.
About the Suite
Featuring almost 2000 square feet of space and only one of two suites on the floor, PH 2 was completely renovated and thoughtfully designed in 2016. The attention to detail and timeless quality surpasses many others in the marketplace. Walls were removed to create bright, airy, open spaces with panoramic north, south, east, and west views. Rare nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows offer expansive views, and a 360-square-foot, south-facing terrace with retractable power awnings offers the possibility to create a garden oasis. A newly replaced deck with built-in lighting provides an elegant setting for alfresco dining. The chef’s kitchen, with ample storage and top-of-the-line appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero, Miele and Viking, provides endless culinary possibilities. Counters are honed marble and an oversized island can accommodate four stools along its edge. The adjacent dining area has magnificent city views, and a wood burning fireplace with cleverly concealed shelving is a lovely focal point on the living room’s feature wall. A den area off the living room could easily be converted into a third bedroom as has been done with other suites in the building. The generously sized primary suite is a private sanctuary with an oversized spa-inspired bathroom with a heated towel rack, double rain showerheads, a wall showerhead, and a large marble vanity. The walk-in closet has custom built-ins and offers double height storage. The second bedroom off the main entrance feels like a second primary suite with its own foyer-like entrance, three-piece marble bathroom and two double closets. A rare mudroom off the main foyer has an exterior vented window and exceptional storage for coats, shoes, and other items. A skylight in the entrance is the only skylight in the building. The tasteful neutral palette of greys and off-white by Farrow & Ball easily accommodates a variety of furniture and art preferences. Ahead of its time and of superior quality when renovated, this timelessly stylish and elegant suite is a unique offering situated in the heart of Yorkville.
