DAYS ON THE MARKET Four

What They Got: On the upper floor of a more than 40-year-old building, this end unit has a traditional plan with an updated eat-in kitchen off the foyer and an open living and dining area with laminate floors and a 21-by-8-foot balcony, as well as a hall to the bedrooms.

Supporting elements include two full bathrooms, including a master ensuite, laundry room, locker and parking.

Monthly fees of $752 cover utilities and cable, as well as a tennis court and indoor and outdoor pools.

The Agent’s Take: “A lot of condos now being built are 500 or 600 square feet, so you can’t have much furniture. This was about 1,100 square feet,” says agent Ed Allan. “That’s pretty standard for the building.”

Residents have access to extensive amenities in the building and even more around it. “It’s very close to public transportation, excellent schools and it also has an excellent shopping centre just down the street,” Mr. Allan states.

“It’s also close to Centennial Park, where they have a ski hill, golf, running and go-karting [facilities], and it’s also close to the Etobicoke Olympium.”
