254 SHAW STREET ORIGINALLY RESTORED AND SOLD IN 2018
I WAS PROUD TO HAVE BEEN PART OF THE PLANNING AND RESTORATION OF THIS AMAZING PROPERTY IN 2017-2018.
Now, I am tasked with selling this incredible property for the current owners. The sellers have done additional upgrades that make this property even more amazing, beautiful, homey and should be desired by anyone coming to West Queen West. Below is how we marketed the property in 2018. Since that time, owners aded custom lighting worth tens of thousands of dollar, automation, added security, automated window shaded and curtains, built-ins, accent wall carpentry, and upgraded storage systems in the garage.
THE BABY BOOMERS AND THE DOWN-SIZERS ARE NOW SUPPLANTING THE HIPSTERS.
With West Queen West becoming the talk of the town new segments of the Toronto population is discovering areas like Little Portugal, Trinity-Bellwoods, Palmerston, Little Italy, Roncesvalles and other surrounding West side pockets. They have now caught on to the reason for the hype. With so many great lifestyle elements imbuing this corridor, the over 40 generation want a piece of the action.
Their Kids are either partying here, or are getting mom and dad to buy them a condo or a starter house here. The parents have spent enough time now shopping at the bakeries, eating at the high end restaurants and drinking at the local craft brewery to say to themselves … “Why aren’t we moving here ourselves and enjoying this lifestyle?”
With Real estate Prices and cost of eating out rising at the highest clip of any area in the GTA, maybe the older segment of the market is the only one that is able to afford this exciting pocket of toronto and all the fabulous life treats it has to offer.
Couple the desire to live in West Queen West with the high rental market and you have turned real estate in West Queen West into a financial hedge, if not an “Investment Grade” asset, that yields amazing cash flow.
WHY 254 SHAW STREET?
Restoration of 254 Shaw Street began mid 2017. Finding a Fully Detached perfectly picturesque representation of a Victorian era home facing Trinity-Bellwoods Park is simply impossible. If you’re looking for a house that sits on 25 foot lot with a 120 Foot depth, you have about 3-5 options total. finding one that has parking in a garage for at least 2 cars…you’re reduced to about 4 homes in total. None are as magical, and certainly not restored like 254 Shaw will be be July 2018
Imagine if you heard of the most spectacular house in Trinity-Bellwoods in the best pocket with the best views restored with the help of a lauded Interior designer. Now imagine having a chance to buy it on the cusp of a veritable real estate explosion in the most exciting part of the city. Wouldn’t that be a steal?
With 254 Shaw St, you get the benefit of a top notch project that is surrounded by the Ossington Strip, best part of West Queen West, next to the Best part of Little Italy, and that has unobstructed views of the Downtown core – which also overlooks the Park. That’s like buying the best home opposite Central Park in New York, except there are only condos in New York now, and you would own an actual house that’s over 4,000 square feet in size.

Redevelopment of 254 Shaw Street began in Spring 2017. When complete, this detached late 1800s single family home will be 3 stories high, with dreamy finishes.
INTERIOR DESIGNS BY Glen Peloso (The Merilyn Dennis Show, Restaurant Makeover)
These FLOOR PLANS are the direction this entire region should be considering, when setting up family homes for generation to come.
Main floor is exactly what you expect, except for its awe inspiring size, custom finishes, over 10 foot ceiling height and a massive kitchen designed for a chef. A rear walkout to a sculpted garden and a double detached garage.
Second floor will have 3 bedrooms – 2 of which would rival most master bedrooms in most other homes in the area. Add a deck at rear and a Juliet balcony for better Park views and you could have accepted forego doing a third level. But not these developers…
Top floor is on everyone’s dream list: a master retreat with a massive deck at rear, an envy-inspiring walk-in closet and a ridiculous wet room that encompasses an actual steam shower, soaker tub, skylights, view of Trinity-Bellwoods Park and a separate walkout overlooking the Toronto Skyline.
Once we completed this project it was time to reveal it to the world, and … OH! and Set a NEW SALES RECORD PRICE for the entire region, for 2018!
This beautiful home was designed by Glen Peloso and the team at Grafus. Learn about Glen’s approach to design..
