The previous owners recently modified this 785-square-foot luxury suite on the 12th floor of an older high rise near the Harbourfront Centre with a unique two-bedroom layout and polished look, says agent Julie Kinnear.
"They took out a sunroom and added a second bedroom with a closet and interior window, which made it so much more usable space for a guest room or a kid," the agent says. "It's also upgraded more than the average, from the appliances to the kitchen and bathroom."
For example, there are energy-efficient kitchen and laundry machines, as well as custom cabinetry in solid cherry wood, a large pantry, halogen lights and granite floors and counters in the kitchen.
There are new hardwood floors in most rooms and an open-concept living and dining room outfitted with built-in shelves, a desk and a wall of windows set on an angle to give a southeastern view of Harbourfront Centre, the marina, the lake and Toronto Islands.
The broadloom-covered master suite offers similar views.
The unit also comes with a locker, and a rental parking spot costing $150 each month.
However, there is little need to drive with amenities within the building - covered by a monthly fee of $401 - such as a gym, recreation room, tennis courts and rooftop barbecue area. The condo also has public transit at its doorstep and easy access to shops and the entertainment district, the waterfront trail and major event venues such as Rogers Centre within easy reach. "You can walk to everything," Ms. Kinnear says.
