What driveway you are talking about? The new construction doesn't care about those details.
The house front faced directly to Lakeshore so entrance to the house is from a walkway.

The backyard is located between the house and its garage.
The garage is for two cars.

There is some landscaping on the backyard but honestly I wasn't impressed by it.

The heart of the Beaches. The beach is located across the street.
I think it is the major advantage of this townhouse.

Everything is near by.
There are few children playgrounds withing 5-10 minutes of walking.

The main park is located across the street.

Everything required for a life can be found near-by.
For all the rest feel free to drive to the nearest Walmart or Loblaws.

Public Transit
No problems with public transit so you can live here even without a car.
Because after purchasing this townhouse you may have no money for a car :)

Property Tax
$4500.00 for year of 2008.


All the rest.

Resume and Conclusion
I still cannot understand who is the target audience for this property.
Buy townhouse in Canada
The most of young families cannot afford it because of its price.
It can be not so attractive for a serious businessman/executive because of neighbors behind the walls.
And lack of some matter-of-course features like an air conditioner honestly a bit depresses.
My personal mark - 3 out of 10.
