Bloorcourt Village: What to expect and enjoy, plus more
A warm welcome
On Rusholme Road at a 100 year old Victorian wood-framed, red brick building, in a neighbourhood known as Bloorcourt Village. With a leafy and private view of Saint Anthony's Church, the bustle of the outside world still to be heard but fades as you settle in the light, airy space. A small and humble studio where I reside and operate from, sparsely furnished with personality, and thoughtfully-appointed to inspire calm and clarity. Bathed in natural light and devoid of personal effects, with the suites old world charm beneath a modern identity, to help you feel at ease.
Step, chatter and cheer
I receive clients at the main and side entrance. Keeping chatter and cheer at a considerate volume and a soft step in the halls and in my suite, is very much appreciated for my neighbours whom seek solace and seclusion in their suites.
Plenty of parking, at hand
If you're travelling by car Rusholme Road offers a few spots of paid parking in front of the building. You'll also find plenty of parking on surrounding side streets, Bloor street and ground level Green P parking just off the lane-way about 50 meters North of Bloor between Bartlet Street and Westmorland Road.
Walk over. Metro nearby
Travelling by foot, subway, bus or streetcar? Only 6 metro stops West from Bloor and Yonge. Dufferin and Ossington stations are only a five minute walk. When arriving by subway to Ossington station exit the platform to Delaware Avenue for a closer route to my studio.
Before and after
Enjoy some Bloorcourt Village shopping at Popbox MicroMrkt for snacks on the go, visit Field Trip for a bite and brew on their sunny patio, browse Muddy George for smart style or Northwood General Store and more boutiques and bookstores for some needed finds.
Where it feels like the weekend every day: Bloordale Village
In the mood to explore? Step 5 minutes further West to Bloordale Village on Bloor. Grab a creative and expertly made cocktail at Grey Tiger, a high-quality Nordic meal at Karelia Kitchen or a tongue-in-cheek card at TOWN. A favourite is Monkey's Paw, an internationally recognized book store of old and unusual printed matter.
Bean and banter by the park: Outpost Coffee Roasters
Love coffee? Walk 25 minutes further West by High Park on Bloor Street to Outpost Coffee Roasters. A roasting-focused coffee company for speciality coffee shops, the office, and home brewing – but not just. Step into their café for counsel on coffee and gadgets; to taste their intelligently roasted beans, along with a bit of banter, as either a precisely pulled espresso or a delicious drip alongside traditional and creatively inspired espresso-based concoctions.
