The Annex is famous for its tree lined streets and grand old mansions. Many were built in the unique ‘Annex style’ (a mix of Richardson Romanesque and Queen Anne Style), a fact not lost on the developers of Lennox Mews (E.J. Lennox being a famous architect credited with the origin of the style). The product of a 1997 conversion project, 228 St George St is steeped in the history of the area, with features that reflect the era. The exterior is the original red brick, the main foyer is rich with wainscoting, but the interior (of unit 5) is modern – while maintaining the classy feeling with wood floors and trim. East- and south-facing, unit 5 features a brand new kitchen and wood floors.
Located just a few blocks north of Bloor St, 228 St George is walking distance to U of T, Yorkville, museums, the arts, restaurants, pubs, shopping and public transit – perfect for students, first-time buyers and professionals who want to live in the heart of the city, but want to stay close the the charm of old Toronto.
Since coming on the market in June we have adjusted the price on this great unit (from $334,900). This is a great value. If you are in the market for something like 5-228 St. George St., call me today and let’s go take a look at it!
