The intimate setting of this fifth-floor corner suite in a low-rise condominium off Mount Pleasant Road was the main reason it attracted a lot of attention. Two solid offers were made in just a week and a half on the market, says agent Julie Kinnear, and the unit sold at an $18,300 premium.
"It's a very hip and happening location," she says, with shops and restaurants nearby on Yonge Street, as well as tranquil outdoor retreats like Davisville Park. "[The building] is a hidden gem."
Units rarely become available in the eight-year-old residence, where this suite is one of four with a 950-square-foot layout with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and an office, as well as large windows facing north or west in every room.
"It was a really nice unit," says Ms. Kinnear. "It had good square footage and it was well laid out."
For instance, the broadloom-covered bedrooms are on opposite ends of the unit for more privacy. The master has a private four-piece bathroom. The secondary bedroom is across the hall from the other bathroom and a laundry room.
The combined living/dining room has upgraded laminate floors and French doors to the office, as well as sliding doors to a west-facing balcony overlooking the landscaped grounds.
The open kitchen features halogen lights and a breakfast bar.
The monthly fee is $362, plus utilities. Residents also have access to a gym and recreation room.
A parking spot and locker are also included.
