"Boutique condo evokes image of New York Brownstone's enduring design."
TIMELESS sophistication - Historic ambiance combined with sophisticated charm and luxurious touches are key features that set Parks Edge, a boutique condominium building in the heart of WortleyVillage, apart on London’s residential scene.
Developers Brian Baillargeon and Peter Jones, longtime Old South residents, wanted to maintain the neighbourhood character. With brick and stone cladding, custom cast metal railings and a crown moulding feature at the roofline, the threestorey building resembles “two New York brownstones put together,” Baillargeon says.
Parks Edge is slated for occupancy in spring 2017. Inside, seven two-bedroom suites, some with a den and all on the second and third floors, will be overflowing with modern amenities. In-floor radiant heating, central air, gas fireplaces, quartz countertops, five stainless steel appliances, no maintenance engineered wide-plank white oak flooring, and expansive windows with remote-controlled blinds all speak to luxury living. Each unit will have a laundry room and two bathrooms, including a generous master ensuite with walk-in closet/dressing room.
The building boasts 10-foot ceilings on the main and second levels, extending to 11 feet on the upper level.
Covered terraces, complete with gas, water and electricity, will offer scenic views of the Village, an adjacent ravine and conservation lands with Thames Park beyond.
Baillargeon notes that the design and engineering far exceeds minimum code and standards, from insulation to noise reduction.
The main level will encompass a lobby, meeting room and comfortable guest suite and access an indoor parking garage on ground level.
Luxury amenities will extend beyond the building itself, which covers just 40 per cent of the property. The remaining area will be meticulously landscaped with woodland gardens and hundreds of plants and trees, bringing natural surroundings to the doorstep.
A rear stone patio will feature a 29-foot plunge pool and waterfall, lounging areas and a gas fire pit. “It’s truly a resort-style setting,” Baillargeon says.
“The entire design is timeless,” he says. “It will always have broad appeal, even 50 years from now.”
