Some spaces just naturally appeal to a wide range of demographics. This sky-high luxury condo in Guelph’s South End is one you can imagine just about anyone being drawn to.
Unit 1302 at 1878 Gordon Street is a stunning new-build penthouse. At 1,781 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and a den, it is a spacious, elegant residence with a beautiful layout that offers an additional 509 sq. ft. with its wraparound balcony.
The foyer opens up to a large open-concept kitchen, dining and living room with an upgraded fireplace. The primary bedroom is off to one side, and the second and third bedrooms are on the other. There is also a den just off the entrance, which is the ideal space for a quiet and private work-from-home office.
The unit is light and bright, with a huge wall of windows throughout. Sliding doors lead out to the balcony, which offers expansive views. The balcony is made of tempered glass with aluminum railings, maximizing the scenic views and your enjoyment of this incredible outdoor living space.
The kitchen features gorgeous custom cabinetry with under-cabinet valance lighting, a large island with an undermount stainless-steel sink and chic faucet, as well as a massive walk-in pantry. The stainless-steel appliances include a self-cleaning ceramic top range, an over-the-range microwave, a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher and upgraded cabinetry including built-in wood drawer organizers.
Both bathrooms are outfitted with custom-designed vanities with soft-close drawers, quartz countertops, designer faucets and frameless mirrors. The three-piece ensuite in the primary bedroom includes double sinks and a stand-up shower. The second bathroom boasts a luxurious soaker tub.
There are countless generous touches throughout. The walk-in closet in the primary bedroom is nearly the size of a small bedroom in itself. The in-suite laundry includes a full-size front-loading washer and dryer and is located just outside the primary suite.
The unit offers over $13,000 in upgrades, says REALTOR® Nick FitzGibbon. High-end finishes include quartz countertops, hardwood floors, upgraded millwork in the laundry room, and additional pot lights; there’s also a locker and two parking spots.
“Given the size and luxurious feel of this unit, it could suit the needs of many different people: downsizers, commuters, a young family—even a single person who is looking for some more space and a great view overlooking the city of Guelph,” says FitzGibbon. “One of only five other residential units on this floor, living in the Sky Series is truly a step above!”
Unit 1302 is in phase one of Gordon Square, built by Tricar Developments; there will be three phases in total once the project has been completed.
Gordon Square is a pedestrian-friendly development located south of Clair Road, on the east side of Gordon Street. Ideally situated, this residential community occupies nearly 9 acres.
The goal for this greenfield development on the southern edge of Guelph was to increase density and provide significant outdoor space within the community. Pedestrian access to nearby commercial developments was designed to reduce vehicle traffic in and out of the community. Gordon Square will become a thoughtful, pedestrian-friendly development that promotes a balanced and healthier style of living.
A central plaza and park are core to the design of this condo community, with over 50% of the property designated as parkland—complete with a fountain, walking trail and expansive open space. 95% of the parking is underground, which reduces surface parking, while maximizing parkland and building size.
Residents have exclusive use of the finest amenities, including the large and inviting lobby, a fully furnished guest suite, a golf simulator, a modern health and fitness centre that is over 2,000 sq. ft. in size and a residents’ sky lounge on the 13th floor that offers panoramic views.
Current homeowners are already enjoying the community, greenspace and everything that this location has to offer. Many have remarked on how welcome they feel and say they were made to feel part of the community immediately.
A diverse mix of retail, shopping, recreation and leisure are all located nearby in the amenity-rich South End neighbourhood. You’re close to Springfield Golf & Country Club and within walking distance of many shops and restaurants, a movie theatre and grocery stores.
Tricar has an impressive portfolio of over 7,000 quality homes across Southwestern Ontario. Their innovative and quality craftsmanship has earned them numerous awards for architecture and design excellence. It is their high standard of customer service, however, that truly defines the Tricar experience for homeowners. Their commitment to providing superior customer care has been consistently recognized in the industry.
Following the successful launch of Gordon Square Towers 1 and 2, Tricar is now collecting registrations for the highly anticipated third phase of Gordon Square. Tower 3 will continue to bring premier condo living to Guelph’s popular South End.
