Buildcrest and Algar combine their talents to create a beautifully realized project in The Briar Town II
Location, location, location are often repeated real estate buzzwords because they really do define the difference between a nice place to live and a great way of life. The Briar Town ll Modern Townhome Collection succeeds on all fronts; spacious impeccably designed townhomes plus a location in Bayview Village that puts you within steps of every amenity you could desire.
You are a five-minute walk from the best of high-end shopping and dining at Bayview Village; you are a seven-minute walk to TTC stations and are close to major highways and GO trains for quick access to downtown. The area is bordered by the East Don Valley Parklands and the development is close to tennis courts, bike trails, golf courses and some of the city’s most highly ranked private schools. All this and your stunning town home will be situated away from the bustle in a tranquil enclave on a safe and quiet tree-lined street.
The Modern Townhome Collection is a beautifully realized project. The exterior is an elegant blend of Classic and Post-Modern architecture with an emphasis on outdoor spaces. The ground floor residences open to a private garden where you can test out your green thumb and relax with friends. The private rooftop terraces are designed with subtle elegance and are finished with concrete pavers, outdoor lighting and gas fire pits. The perfect spot for a family barbecue or sunny day lounging.
The interiors are truly a space enclosed by light and the design and finishes are Architectural Digest spectacular. The windows in the open loft style living areas and the master bedrooms are walls of glass with such subtle, almost invisible, support struts that the outside and the inside seem to merge. The soaring 9.6-ft. height of the concrete ceilings in the principal rooms combined with the glass window walls of sparkling light visually expand the already generous rooms. These residences range in size from a comfortable 840 to a luxurious 1,600 sq. ft.
The waterfall staircases are sculptural show stoppers. The kitchens are fitted with sleek custom designed European cabinets, Caesarstone countertops, designer backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. In the larger townhomes, the layout and creative design touches in the kitchens turn these stylish but functional rooms into the aesthetic focal point of the whole living area.
The flooring is engineered hardwood in all rooms other than the bathrooms and laundry closet where you have a choice of porcelain 12-by-24-in. tiles for flooring and shower walls. The bathrooms are sleek and contemporary with white fixtures a clear glass fixed panel shower enclosure and the very chic touch of black faucets and shower heads.
After the success of Bold Towns at Danforth and Broadview Avenue, Briar Town ll is the latest project of the residential development company Buildcrest, working alongside interior design firm Algar Developments Inc. The units range in size from 840 to 1,600 sq. ft., and prices range from mid $700,000 to more than $1 million.
