The open concept living area with classic hardwood flooring flows seamlessly into the contemporary kitchen with stainless steel appliances, stone countertop, and modern cabinetry. Storage is no issue with two generously sized bedrooms with double closets, plus an owned locker space. The additional den area makes an excellent office nook. Year-round barbecuing is a cinch with a gas hook up on the private balcony, and an east exposure means great views of the historic Gladstone Hotel.
This is the best that West Queen West has to offer: the Drake and Gladstone Hotels, a thriving restaurant and bar scene, and some of the city's best specialty stores and coffee shops. Amenities are literally a few floors down with banks, Metro grocery, and transit right at the corner.
