DAYS ON THE MARKET One

LISTING AGENT Boris Kholodov, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division

The Action: Near the Royal Ontario Museum, One Bedford had a few luxury suites for sale, including this two-bedroom corner unit that charmed many international buyers. Though no deal was signed during the first months of the summer, an offer came in a day after the listing expired and was renewed with the same price and agent.

What They Got: Southwest-facing windows surround every room of this 1,521-square-foot suite, from the open living and dining area with a 100-square-foot balcony to a family room off a galley kitchen dressed with black subway tile backsplashes, Nero Africa granite counter, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances.

On opposite ends of the unit, there are two bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet, but both with private bathrooms and carpeting rather than oak hardwood like the principal rooms.

A third bathroom, laundry room, a locker and parking are practical perks of this suite, which comes with monthly fees of $957 for water, concierge, a gym, pool and party room.

The Agent’s Take: “The building is one of the most desirable in the Bloor-Yorkville area right now,” agent Boris Kholodov said. “The location is key as well as the prestige that this building has to offer to a buyer looking for a blue chip property in the city.”

What this unit lacked in size versus other units, it made up for in scope. “This one sold for the highest price paid per square foot in this building this year because the view is very desirable,” Mr. Kholodov explains. “You see everything from the University of Toronto campus down to the lake.”
