The Action: Excess clutter and pet toys were cleared out of this two-bedroom-plus-den corner suite to showcase its best features in preparation for about 20 private showings over the course of a month.
What They Got: On the 18th floor of a two-year-old high-rise, there are just four units, including this 1,095-square-foot residence with nine-foot ceilings, south and west-facing windows and $80,000 worth of upgrades, such as hardwood floors and crown mouldings.
High traffic areas include an open den and living room with sliding doors to a 17-by-nine-foot terrace with a gas line, a separate dining area and a Downsview galley kitchen with marble and quartz finishes and Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances.
Quieter areas consist of two bedrooms, both with walkouts to a second balcony. The larger has a walk-in closet and one of two full bathrooms.
The unit comes with laundry machines, a locker and parking, plus monthly fees of $648 for water and heating costs.
Amenities on site include concierge, guest suites, a gym and pool, while public attractions nearby range from upscale boutiques and bistros to galleries and museums.
The Agent’s Take: “The location, the amount of space as well as the upgrades within the suite contributed to the sale of the property,” agent Boris Kholodov said.
“It is located right across the street from the entrance to the subway station and the subway there can take you east and west and north and south.”
The unit also offers a 250-square-foot area to get fresh air. “This one is special because it has more outdoor space than other units in the building and in the area,” Mr. Kholodov
