This condominium loft at the corner of Clendanan Avenue and Dundas Street West attracted eight offers, and people still ask about it weeks after its sale, agent Julie Kinnear says.
"There are 13 windows, so there is lots of light," she says. "It has high ceilings (more than nine feet); big open-concept living room, dining room, kitchen. . . . It felt really big."
The 928-square-foot loft spans the length of the five-storey, 15-unit building, and its two bedrooms are at opposite ends.
The principal living space in the centre is ideal for entertaining, with an L-shaped cooking area, tiled centre island that seats two, and a powder room off to one side. There are laminate floors, halogen lighting, and appliances, including a gas stove and range hood.
The master bedroom is near a full bathroom and laundry facilities.
The unit includes a locker and outdoor parking.
There is a monthly fee of $381 for hydro, water and the maintenance of common elements.
Though there are no building amenities, the residence has a strong sense of community, Ms. Kinnear says, noting: "They have annual Christmas parties."
The neighbourhood is family friendly, and close to schools, public transit and parks.
There are shops and restaurants steps from the cobblestone path in front of the building, and in Bloor West Village and the Junction area.
