Just imagine living with a treed meadow as your backdrop for morning coffees on the balcony, all while tucked away on a kid-friendly crescent street in the most walkable location in Old Thornhill.  Welcome to 128 Confederation Way!

  • Steps to Yonge street, the farmer's market and award winning eateries such as Terra Restaurant/Oyster Bar and Frilu known for it's outstanding tasting menu.  Yum yum!
  • Pamona Mills Park is just a brief stroll away with over 47 kilometres of riverside trails, picturesque bridges, soccer fields, tennis courts and so much space for frolicking with the pooch.
  • For the sporty folk, there are a handful of golf and tennis clubs within a 5 minute drive, and even a beginner ski hill at Uplands Golf and Ski Club.

Hi there, Rebecca Laing from RE/MAX Hallmark coming to you from my lovely new listing on Confederation Way in Old Thornhill.  This nearly 2100 square foot 3-bedroom home is backdropped by a tranquil grove of trees, tucked away on a kid-friendly crescent steps from Yonge Street.  Let’s take a look inside.

The lower level features a large foyer that leads to the family room with walkout to patio and backyard.   The main level offers well-proportioned living and dining rooms that provide easy options for furniture placement.  Off the living room, is a balcony walkout that gives you a birds-eye perspective through the tree canopy.  The contemporary kitchen offers extensive counter space, pantry storage, a generous eat-in area, and a powder room tucked away around the corner. The upper level offers 3 good-sized bedrooms, including the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and recently-renovated ensuite bath.  A hallway linen closet and a third washroom completes the upper level.

The backyard is exceptionally large for a townhome, and widens at the back like a pie shaped lot.  It’s the perfect canvas for the green-thumb inclined  buyer.

Returning to the front of the home you’ll find the attached garage is all set for your Model S, with electric vehicle charger installed.  But one of the great things about living here is you won’t need the car all the time, as Yonge Street is only 400 steps away.  From the farmers market to Tim Horton’s to health and beauty service, all your day-to-day needs are covered.  And for special occasions, great meals from the Octagon and Frilu are also within strolling distance.

For fresh air and exercise, you’ll find Pamona Mills Park just down the road, with 47 kilometres of riverside trails, soccer fields, tennis courts and so much more.

When it’s time to venture beyond the neighbourhood, commuting is a breeze.  The 407 is less than 2.5km away, and for transit riders it's only a 300m walk to the YRT bus that offers frequent service to Finch station.
If convenient turnkey living with a hint of nature in the heart of Thornhill sounds intriguing , then you’ll want to check out this home.  Get in touch with me to find out more.
