DAYS ON THE MARKET One
LISTING AGENT Christopher Kowal, Royal LePage Urban Realty
The Action: In a roughly two-year-old high rise downtown, few end units become available. So when this one-bedroom model came on the market, half a dozen buyers immediately signed up for showings and an offer was made shortly after that.
What They Got: This third floor suite at Verve offers 10-foot ceilings, oversized eight-foot doors, high baseboards and laminate floors throughout.
Along a wall of windows and a walkout to an over 270-square-foot patio with water and gas hookups, there is an open living area, dining space and kitchen with custom glass backsplashes, stainless steel appliances and granite-topped counters and island.
Practical attributes include a walk-in closet in the master suite, a four-piece bathroom and en suite laundry facilities, in addition with a locker and tandem parking spot.
The monthly fee of $366 covers water costs, concierge services and maintenance of a gym and outdoor pool.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s a one-bedroom [unit]with a lovely east-facing terrace overlooking an urban park,” says agent Christopher Kowal. “It was really well planned and very open looking, so although it was only 720-square-feet, it looked much larger than that.”
