This one-bedroom condominium located right downtown has a pleasing design scheme and showed like a model suite, according to agent Julie Kinnear.
"It was a great package," she says. "It's perfect for a first-time buyer or young student at Ryerson."
The 12-storey building was built four years ago on a residential street, just east of Yonge Street. "You're down the street from so many great things," Ms. Kinnear says, such as the Eaton Centre and Massey Hall.
Restaurants, theatres and a 24-hour supermarket are a stone's throw away.
The roughly 700-square-foot suite on the seventh floor has a combined living and dining room with laminate floors, built-in shelves and a Juliet balcony overlooking historic homes and a parkette.
A wall of windows brightens the open-concept space as well as the kitchen, which has black appliances and a peninsula with a breakfast bar.
Natural light floods the master suite when its sliding doors are open. The room also has a closet that hides a stacked washer and dryer. The sole bathroom, with four pieces, is off the foyer.
"There is a similar floor plan in some other units, but this seemed to show better, because it had quite modern, neutral decor," Ms. Kinnear notes.
Parking is included. A monthly fee of $385 covers utilities and the upkeep of amenities, including a gym, sauna, party room, billiards room and a rooftop deck with a barbecue area.
