Home of the Week, 500 Wellington St. W., Toronto. ASKING PRICE: $2.824-million
The original plan was to build 17 units in the low-rise building, but two owners purchased entire floors and so the final tally came in at 15.
The units are spacious, with 10-foot ceilings and open living areas made for accommodating guests. Doctors, entrepreneurs, young couples, empty nesters and Bay Street mavens have all taken up residence since the suites were finished about a year ago.
‘The kitchen is a highlight,’ says agent Arif Manji of the Italian design. The Scavolini kitchen is sleek and high-gloss white, with a hidden side-by-side refrigerator, built-in wall oven, gas cooktop, under-the-counter wine fridge and a large island with Caesarstone top.
Doors open from the main living area to a large south-facing terrace. ‘This is probably where I’d have dinner with friends,’ says Mr. Manji. ‘Wellington is such a private, quiet street.’
The master suite offers a large bedroom and a dressing room with a built-in wall safe.
The ensuite bathroom has a standalone tub, separate shower, water closet and a vanity with two sinks. Doors open to a terrace with services for gas and water.
‘The view is unobstructed for life to the park,’ says Mr. Manji of the vista facing southwest.
