The Action: With several house hunters moving quickly to secure private showings of this two-bedroom penthouse in Yorkville, one savvy buyer entered a strong offer before an open house event on the weekend could be held.

What They Got: On the seventh floor of a roughly seven-year-old midrise, this 1,042 square foot suite is centred around a spacious living and dining area lavishly fashioned with hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, walls of windows and sliding glass doors to a balcony.

Overlooking the entertaining area is a U-shaped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove, and granite counters with an extended breakfast bar.

For optimal privacy, one side of the unit houses a guest bedroom and bathroom, while the other accommodates a master suite with a walk-in closet and a four-piece bathroom.

En suite laundry facilities, a storage locker and two underground parking spots are included with the penthouse.

The monthly fee of $715 pays for the expense of water, heating, concierge and security services, plus recreational amenities in the building and a 36-storey high-rise on Yorkville Avenue.

The Agents' Take: "Every building only has a handful of penthouse units, which made it very attractive to buyers," says agent Brennan Aguanno. "The layout is fantastic, the location is fantastic and it's a sought-after building."

For instance, the mid-rise is often the envy of residents in the sister tower. "What is rare about this building is that it's only seven-storeys … so it's a more intimate building with less suites, which translates into shorter waits for elevators," adds Mr. Aguanno.
