Compared to newer condominiums springing up across the city, this two-bedroom corner suite offers a desirable mix of modern finishes, a spacious floor plan and rare extras like a wood burning fireplace in the den for less than $600,000.
It’s good value for downtown living in Toronto, says agent Elli Davis.
Situated on the upper floor of a 20-something residence across from Allan Gardens, this 1,823-square-foot suite was given a makeover within the last few years, including updated broadloom in an enclosed balcony and hardwood floors in the combined living and dining area.
It was renovated very nicely with new floors installed, new kitchen and new appliances, says Ms. Davis.
In addition, the master bathroom – complete with a shower stall and whirlpool tub – was remodelled.
The eat-in kitchen has tile floors, granite counters, a pantry and stainless steel appliances, along with a large bay window – a feature rarely seen in other condominiums and a real plus, says Ms. Davis.
The unit also comes with a second full bathroom and en-suite laundry facilities, as well as underground parking.
The monthly fee of $1,076 covers utilities and cable.
Other perks include a pet-friendly building, 24-hour concierge and shared amenities such as a gym, squash/racquet courts, indoor pool, party and media rooms and a rooftop deck.
