Claire Gordon Just Listed: Gorgeous townhome in King West!

Today I listed 11 Niagara Unit 35, a gorgeous townhome in Portland Village. The price is $499,900 and offers are gratefully accepted on Tuesday February 16th. Take a look at the professional photography and videography.
What a fabulous property! The location is ideal! It is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac right across from Victoria Memorial Park in the heart of King West. No more taxi fares as this two bedroom plus den townhome is within walking distance of the financial and theatre district and is steps away from all the terrific restaurants, boutiques and bars in King West. This home boasts beautiful hardwood floors, large living and dining areas and two terraces, one off the master bedroom and the other on the rooftop. The rooftop terrace is ideal for barbequing and entertaining a group.

If you would like to hear a few comments from Claire and get a sense of the amazing view from the rooftop patio, take a look at my video below! What a view!!!!




Open House this weekend: 1pm-4pm both Saturday and Sunday!
