THE BOUTIQUE RETREAT AT THE
CENTRE OF EVERYTHING
Toronto's most desirable neighbourhoods at your doorstep
If location is paramount when it comes to buying a home, then this Yorkville rowhouse is in the perfect position to win you over. But proximity to everything is hardly the only reason to recommend the fully updated, lovingly maintained heritage property. Open-concept yet immaculately cozy, 27 Belmont is all you could want, wrapped in a red-brick package. It’s your welcome respite after a day spent striking deals downtown, your quiet corner for coffee with a best mate, your launch pad for a night on the town. It’s your home in the heart of the city.
The unassuming entrance immediately gives way to well-proportioned, open-concept space: a welcoming living room gives way to a dining area that comfortably seats six. Beyond, the custom galley kitchen boasts top-end appliances including a built-in oven and microwave, and a Miele gas range with custom hood. The nine-foot ceiling lends a sense of expansiveness while allowing for ample cabinetry and shelving.
Second and Third Floors
The uniquely designed second story gives you flexibility to make it your own. The spacious primary bedroom has built-in storage and walk-in access to the oversize, marble-tiled bathroom—featuring a double-sink vanity, deep soaker tub, and glass-enclosed shower. Separated by a sliding door, the skylit secondary space works splendidly as a guestroom, office, or even a nursery.
A two-piece bathroom and tucked-away laundry facilities lend practicality to the dug-out basement. The space itself is sizable enough to serve many possible functions: an office, crafting room, or library; a serene yoga and workout area; or a kitted-out media centre. Options for adding storage are equally endless, no matter what you choose to do with the room itself.
The low-maintenance front-of-house lets you imagine life on an English high street–while the private back patio is perfect for hosting intimate gatherings or just kicking back with a favourite book. Add some string lights, hanging planters, and a colourful outdoor rug and you’ve got a secret garden that no one will ever want to leave.
Sitting at the border of downtown Toronto’s two most sought-after neighbourhoods, 27 Belmont Street gives you near-immediate access to Yorkville’s glamorous restaurants and renowned retail strip, as well as the quieter luxuries of Rosedale and Summerhill. Whether you’re in the mood for a 10-course tasting menu, a yoga session, or an afternoon of window shopping, every whim is easily within reach. Need to travel farther afield? The subway is steps away (the Financial District, for example, is just six stops south of Rosedale Station), while winding Rosedale Valley Road offers easy driving access to the Don Valley Parkway.

Eat & Drink
Dine at a different neighbourhood gem every night of the week. All you have to do is walk north on Yonge Street: the midtown location of T.O. institution Terroni is perfect for pizza and pasta (plus a negroni or two), Sorrel offers seafood-forward Mediterranean and French classics, and Taline spices things up with elevated Armenian fare. Or if you want to make an event of eating out, head south to Yorkville, where big-name, see-and-be-seen spots like Cafe Boulud, One, and Buca Osteria mix with more intimate date-night favourites such as flirty Bar Reyna and amber-hued Alobar. The area is also home to Toronto’s greatest concentration of Michelin-starred establishments, including its only two-star restaurant, Sushi Masaki Saito.
Yorkville rivals the world’s most famous retail districts: luxury brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Hermes sit shoulder-to-shoulder on bustling Bloor Street West. In Summerhill, you can shop local at boutiques like Smythe, for on-trend women’s work- and eveningwear, and Gee Beauty for tried-and-trusted skincare and cosmetics products. Looking good goes hand-in-hand with eating well, and with a Whole Foods and upscale Italian market Eataly—not to mention the LCBO’s flagship Summerhill store—close by, your pantry, fridge, and wine cellar are sure to stay consistently well stocked.
Early risers are well rewarded. Enjoy a quiet run (or friendly tennis match) at Ramsden Park, just steps from your front door. Or make tracks to Toronto’s unique ravine system, whose tree-lined trails meander for kilometres through the city. Lively cafes like Mitfar and Boxcar are perfect for a post-stroll pastry and espresso, while the wellness set heads to Greenhouse Juice Co. for cold-pressed beverages, kombuchas, and plant-derived milks. Looking for a little culture? Browse Yorkville’s assemblage of old-guard art galleries—and envision a masterpiece or two on your own walls—or check out renowned collections at the Royal Ontario Museum and Gardiner Museum.
