The Avenue Road and Lawrence neighbourhood is a coveted part of Toronto — an area rich in boutique stores, premier grocers, and some of the city’s best schools, both public and private. If you’ve always wanted to call this area home, a townhome at Empire Maven may be a great opportunity for you, especially if you’re looking for more room to grow. Here are 4 standout features of these luxe two-storey townhomes in the Avenue Road and Lawrence neighbourhood.

1. A Private Cul-De-Sac Street

A popular selling feature of Maven’s townhomes is their location on a secluded cul-de-sac. Here, you’ll enjoy increased privacy without a heavy influx of pedestrians, noise or traffic, while being just steps away from the heart of the action on Avenue Road. In addition to a terrace just outside your front door, Maven’s townhomes come with a rear courtyard so you have a secluded retreat.

2. In Walking Distance to Life’s Conveniences

When you live in the Avenue Road and Lawrence neighbourhood, you get unparalleled access to all the best spots — Pusateri’s, Maker Pizza, Ambrosia, Floris, and more. Planting roots in this neighbourhood makes living easier than ever, with modern conveniences like coffee shops, fitness studios, and banks within walking distance from your front door.

3. A New-Build Home in an Established Neighbourhood

Living in one of Empire’s townhomes means you get all the perks that come with a new-build home — luxurious features and finishes like pot lights, Caesarstone countertops, and hardwood flooring, brand new interiors with an outdoor terrace and rear courtyard, and a blank canvas to decorate. But these homes aren’t just located in your average area — they have the added benefit of being located in one of Toronto’s most established neighbourhoods so you can settle right in and live with ease.

4. Excellent Schools

Schools have a big influence on where you decide to live. You want your kids to have access to the best educational opportunities and we don’t blame you. With a mix of private and public schools close to home like Havergal College, AVRO Academy, Alive Montessori, John Ross Robertson Junior Public School and Bedford Park Public School, you and your kids will have an abundance of options to choose from.
