The sound of traffic on the Gardiner Expressway is the one drawback of this two-bedroom suite in a low-rise condominium on the eastern edge of Etobicoke, agent Julie Kinnear says.
But the fifth-floor, 990-square-foot unit makes up for that shortcoming with several positive attributes, including a desirable layout, top-of-the-line finishes and decor, and vistas of Mimico Creek and the city beyond.
"You get a pretty decent-size place, and it's in a really nice building," Ms. Kinnear adds.
"The views in the summer would be beautiful because it's on a ravine."
The suite has a split-bedroom layout, with the master bedroom on one side of the principal room and the second on the other, along with a three-piece bathroom. The master en suite bathroom contains a large trompe l'oeil mural with a waterfront theme painted by the previous owner, who is a professional artist.
Adjacent to the foyer, there is a rare walk-in closet, and the kitchen, which has a breakfast bar that overlooks the dining area and living room, and provides access to a laundry room. French doors open to a balcony with a gas hookup.
There are nine-foot ceilings and upgraded finishes such as granite countertops, walnut laminate floors and imported ceramic tiles. These were installed by the builder when the unit was completed a few years ago.
The unit has underground parking and a locker. A monthly fee of $293 covers water and maintenance of common areas, including a gym and rooftop garden.
