18 Holmes Avenue – Building Details

18 Holmes Avenue Mona Lisa Residences in Willowdale East, North York

The condo’s elliptical shape certainly distinguishes it from the surrounding architecture.

18 Holmes Avenue lies at the intersection of Yonge and Finch in the Willowdale East neighborhood.

Also known as Mona Lisa Residences, the building’s artistic exterior curves gently and is made of pale blue-green glass.

Just as stunning is the condo’s lobby, which boasts high ceilings, huge windows, and famous works of art.

In addition to water lilies, a portrait of the Mona Lisa greets residents and visitors.

With a vibrant North York location and extravagant amenities ranging from indoor pools to outdoor gazebos, 18 Holmes Avenue offers the perfect mix of nature, luxury and urban living.

18 Holmes Avenue – The Space

Sleek floors and high ceilings are just some of the highlights.

Unit 901 features 618 sq. ft. of interior space, including a large master bedroom, a bathroom, and a multi-purpose den.

The open-concept living and dining rooms promote flow and conversation, while luxurious hardwood floors add a touch of elegance.

Foyer with shoes

The foyer has a closet for all your storage needs.

And because the living/dining areas are right next to the glass-paneled den, residents can enjoy sunshine all year round.

Unit 901 is bright and cheerful even in the middle of winter.

Another advantage of the glass den? It makes the condo seem longer and even more spacious.

18 Holmes Avenue – The Kitchen

The kitchen is tucked neatly between the laundry closet and bathroom.

Unit 901’s kitchen has its own little space just behind the breakfast bar. In fact, it’s almost like a separate room since it’s so well-hidden.

View of kitchen and appliances

The kitchen’s layout is beautiful yet functional.

Once inside, you’ll discover countless cabinets and drawers in warm earth-tones. There’s also a tiled back-splash, ceramic floors, and large stainless-steel appliances.

These include:

  • A Whirlpool stove and refrigerator
  • Microwave and dishwasher

A closet at the back provides plenty of storage, while glossy laminate floors add a pop of colour.

18 Holmes Avenue – Den & Balcony

Den and also clothes

This homeowner uses the den as part storage room and part clothes dryer.

At a rather large 7 and a half by 6 sq. ft., the den can serve a variety of roles. For example, you can use it as an office, study, closet, or even a small bedroom for kids.

It has the same luxurious hardwood floors as the living and dining rooms. Plus, it serves up breathtaking views of North York!

Finally, there’s the balcony….

So here we see Willowdale East and North York from the balcony.

At 40 sq. ft., the balcony offers sweeping views of Willowdale East.
