In a roughly two-year-old condominium just north of High Park, this two-bedroom corner suite on the 19th floor - just below the penthouse units - was so sought-after that agent Julie Kinnear received multiple offers within an hour of putting it on the market.
"It was a particularly nice unit in the building; there aren't many like that," she says. "It's a good size with two full bedrooms and bathrooms."
The more than 1,000-square-foot suite boasts nine-foot ceilings and expansive windows overlooking a tree-filled neighbourhood, High Park and Lake Ontario. "The views were amazing," Ms. Kinnear says.
There is a west-facing balcony with glass railings off the master suite, and a larger terrace off the combined living and dining room. The terrace faces south and has a gas barbecue hookup.
The kitchen has open shelving above a peninsula, upgraded granite countertops, pot lights and stainless-steel appliances.
Upgraded hardwood floors complete the principal room and bedrooms. The master suite has a walk-in closet and private bathroom with a tub and shower stall.
Other features include a laundry room with storage space, parking, and a locker by the elevator that the sellers paid a premium for at the time of construction, Ms. Kinnear notes.
The monthly maintenance fee is just over $527, which includes water and heating costs, as well as a gym, billiards room, theatre and recreation room. The latter has a fireplace and a walkout to a common area that features pillars from the church that once stood on the site.
