This one-bedroom suite with a solarium was a special real estate opportunity given its location on an upper floor of a roughly five-year-old condominium and its proximity to the Yonge and Eglinton intersection.
"It was all about location," explains agent Julie Kinnear, referring to the area's collection of trendy shops, restaurants and lounges, parks and the subway.
"And it was high up enough that there were no buildings in front, so it was good for light."
The brightest rooms in the 680-square-foot unit include an open living and dining area with a walkout to an east-facing balcony, and the solarium, whose sliding glass door opens to the bedroom.
Prior to construction, the seller and original owner upgraded both the floor covering - it's broadloom throughout - and kitchen cabinetry.
The cooking area features a granite-topped peninsula with a breakfast bar, marble flooring and stainless-steel appliances.
Adjacent to the front door are a four-piece bathroom and a laundry closet.
"It's in nice, move-in condition," Ms. Kinnear says of the unit overall. "It's a great first home for somebody."
The suite also comes with a locker. A monthly fee of $444 covers utilities and the upkeep of amenities that include a gym, golf cage, landscaped terrace, media and party rooms, and a concierge.
