The Action: About a dozen buyers asked for showings of this one-bedroom suite, which is located in one of the more established buildings in an area where different builders have developed condominium projects. On the day offers could be registered, none were submitted, yet two buyers emerged simultaneously a few days later.
What They Got: In one of two high-rise towers in the Residences of Avondale – constructed less than a decade ago – this ground-floor suite was designed with a private bedroom, an open galley-style kitchen and a combined living and dining area with sliding doors to a premium patio space.
The space feels upscale with hardwood and marble floors, granite counters and backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances.
To complete the package, there is one bathroom, stacked laundry machines, a storage locker and parking.
A monthly fee of $362 goes towards utilities and shared facilities, which include an indoor pool, hot tub, gym and party room to guest suites and visitor parking. A convenience store is also available at street level.
The Agent’s Take: “This particular building … was built by Shane Baghai, whose condos are usually in demand,” agent Honey Moore said. “The unit is 540 square feet, cute and cozy with an amazing private terrace of about 175 [square]feet, which overlooked great landscaping.”
