Neatly tucked into Toronto’s coveted Mount Pleasant neighbourhood comes an elegant new community redefining the notion of modern luxury. Savile on the Roe—an exclusive collection of 28 luxury residences inspired by the iconic brownstones that line the streets of New York and Boston—have managed to elevate the design for the modern era, offering residents bespoke interiors tailored to their specific tastes along with ample private outdoor space.

Mere minutes away from some of the city’s most celebrated restaurants, schools, and boutiques, Savile on the Roe’s tasteful design feels as though it’s the missing puzzle piece in building one of the city’s most admired communities. The residence’s classic brickwork was designed to mimic the heritage buildings in the surrounding neighbourhood while charcoal metal panels and accents add a modern twist in what has amounted to a perfect bridge between past and future.

In an era where new residential developments tend to take on identical, impersonal design for the sake of lowering budgets and creative demands, Savile on the Roe has pivoted to offer a personal touch to each unit. Along with its New York and Boston brownstone counterparts, the Mount Pleasant residence also naturally takes inspiration from London’s iconic Savile Row, a street synonymous with high-end bespoke tailoring since the late-18th century.

Today, Savile on the Roe has adopted similar attention to detail by designing all suites with nine-foot-plus ceilings and feature chef kitchens with custom-designed cabinetry, quartz countertops, and panelled appliances. Similarly, stunning quartz countertops also line the bathrooms along with high-end designer wall tiles, and more custom cabinets. But the true personalization comes with a selection of choice layouts that include private rooftop terraces, front yard patios, sizable backyards up to 80 feet long, as well as an option for elevators in select suites. While most mid-range developments are quick to give themselves a “luxury” moniker, Savile on the Roe has raised the bar on Toronto’s definition of modern elegance.

And while owners can certainly look forward to the high-end finishes inside the residence, the surrounding area will likely prove to be just as enticing, as the Mount Pleasant location resides just minutes away from midtown’s Yonge and Eglinton. Anyone who’s accustomed to big city living will attest that, normally, finding luxury urban living with both ample private outdoor space and nearby neighbourhood hotspots is an utter impossibility.

Typically, securing property with any semblance of greenery tends to push potential homebuyers towards the edge of Toronto, far away from the vibrant culture in the heart of the city. But just a short trip outside the front doors of these units is a variety of choice cuisine, from authentic international fare, wine bars, gastro pubs, and an array of cafés. And while the inside of the residences embodies the notion of “bespoke living,” so does the outside, with the residence offering units in three unique collections.

The Avenue Collection has a series of walk-up residences on the north side of the building featuring their own private patios while the Terrace Collection includes the residences on the third and fourth floors and offers their owners a private rooftop terrace. Lastly, the Garden Collection features a set of surprisingly large backyards—up to 80 feet long—and includes a patio near the home and a grass area towards the back of the property.

Whether you’re looking for a general lifestyle upgrade, a luxury downsizing, or a place to grow your family, Savile on the Roe has a variety of suites ranging anywhere from 920-2,432 square feet with enough customization to meet your every need. It’s this rare balance between form and function, between complimenting and elevating the existing neighbourhood, between tradition and modernity that makes Savile on the Roe a rare gem in the sea of Toronto real estate developments.
