Acerca de nuestra casa

I’m a travel writer who has lived all over the world, and my home reflects two themes – camels, which I grew to love during an assignment in Egypt – and interiors by my favourite artist, Matisse. My garden apartment looks out onto Amsterdam Square, a green oasis in the heart of the city, filled with tulips in the spring, a fountain and park benches. Across the street is a children’s playground with a replica of the Peter Pan statue in London’s Kensington Gardens. Out my back door is a small private garden with garden furniture.
The spacious, rose-colored living room has a fireplace, high ceilings and comfortable furniture. The sofa folds out into a comfortable single bed. The dining room is a mixture of rosewood chinoiserie and handpainted 1930s English china. The rosy-hued master bedroom has a queen-size bed, adjustable bedside reading lamps and ample closet space. A sunny, smaller bedroom across the hall has a double bed and more closet space. The modern bathroom is all light and mirrors, with a deep bathtub/shower and plenty of hot water. The kitchen is pretty and easy to work in, with a huge fridge, dishwasher, microwave, stove, double sink and a huge pantry and a door out into the garden. I am a passionate baker and keen cook, so the kitchen is well equipped.
My building is a co-op, in which all the apartments are occupied by the owners, and the superintendent lives right next door. Our laundry room features brand new, front-loading washers and dryers (no extra charge)

Más sobre nosotros

  1. As a travel writer, I spend much of my time traveling in Central America. I grew up in Canada but as a journalist and former "corporate wife," I have lived all over the world. I know London, Paris, Rome, New York and Washington, D.C. (where I was an editor at the Washington Post for 10 years) very well. My partner, Peter, was born in the U.S. and spent most of his life on the West Coast but now lives in Costa Rica. We are keen hikers, birders and food-lovers, and we are eager to explore the French, Italian and Spanish countryside. I have a masters degree in Italian history and a smattering of French and Italian from my university days, as well as my new-found Spanish proficiency. I am on the board of the Costa Rican Birding Club, and I am always seeking new birds, new landscapes and new flavours. Peter is a former consultant and Sierra Club hike leader, a sailor, skier, semi-pro golfer, and a wine-lover. Our respective children are grown up and launched, and we are free to roam.
    We love good food, good wine and beautiful landscapes we can explore on foot.

Ubicación

Barrio/zona

My apartment is in an ivy-covered, four-story, 1920s building, set in a park in the center of town, just steps away from public transportation and many of Toronto’s renowned fine restaurants (including Scaramouche, just three blocks south) and intriguing ethnic neighbourhoods. Outside my front door you have your choice of the Avenue Road bus, which takes you south to the chic Yorkville shopping/dining area, the University of Toronto campus and the Royal Ontario Museum. The St. Clair streetcar goes west to Italian, Portuguese and West Indian neighbourhoods. The Yonge Street subway, three blocks away, takes you all over town, including south to the financial district and the lakeshore with its miles of parks and islands accessible by ferry boat. Within 15 minutes’ walk of the apartment, you can find every imaginable cuisine – Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Indian, French and of course, Italian. (There are still more Italians in Toronto than in any city outside Rome.) Cafes, bookstores, movie theatres, gourmet shops, wine shops, florists and mammoth grocery stores are all within easy walking distance. There are also nature trails in leafy ravines nearby where you can hike, jog or stroll all the way down to the lakeshore. Canada's only castle, Casa Loma, is a 15-minute walk away along St. Clair Avenue.
