This stacked condominium townhouse in the trendy King West Village is memorable for its prime location and layout, agent Julie Kinnear says.
It's in a complex that was built more than a decade ago, long before the surrounding area expanded with new residential developments, shops and restaurants, as well as a 24-hour grocery store.
The house is near parks, public transit, and the Drake and Gladstone hotels on Queen Street.
"It's a nice little pocket that's quite convenient," Ms. Kinnear says. "It's great for young professionals."
The original owner of the three-storey unit opted for a 1,080-square-foot plan with two rather than three bedrooms. "This was appealing because the bedrooms are usually so small, so this meant for a nice, big luxury-style master bedroom," the agent explains.
The bedrooms are on the second floor, along with a four-piece bathroom.
On the main level, there is a powder room and a combined living and dining room with halogen lights and maple-stained laminate floors installed just last year.
Along the back, the kitchen has upgraded granite countertops and ceramic floors and backsplash.
With south-facing windows throughout, the interior gets plenty of light. City skylines can be viewed from a private, 325-square-foot rooftop terrace with wood decking and fencing.
"These stacked townhouses have a lot of stairs - which is a drawback - but having this outdoor [space] is a big plus," Ms. Kinnear adds.
The unit comes with en suite laundry facilities and storage, and there is street-level access and outdoor parking. The monthly maintenance fee of $437 covers utilities. The complex is pet-friendly.
