LISTING AGENTS Jill Stewart and Robert LePage, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: Open houses are not permitted in the Town and Country condo community near Islington station, so this ground-floor suite was only viewed by appointment or through an agents open house. It sold by the second day - just after another unit sold and before another suite listed.

What They Got: Nestled against an extensive ravine and park system are a pair of residential mid-rises where this 1,600-square-foot model sits at the base of the second phase with northeast-facing windows and a patio off the living and dining area overlooking the lush green space.

Inside are ceramic floors in the eat-in kitchen and laminate floors recently laid in two upper bedrooms, both with walk-in closets and one with entry to one of three bathrooms.

This owner also has two parking spots. Utilities, concierge, indoor pool, fitness, games and party rooms are covered by monthly fees of $961.

The Agent's Take: "It's more of a boutique building – with a party room and gym – so people are drawn to it because of its small scale," says agent Jill Stewart. "[This unit] is a little unusual. Several suites on the main floor are two storeys, so it has a townhouse set up."

Furthermore, this unit benefits from being on the 'country' rather than the 'town' side of the complex. "Being on the ground floor, it has a terrace rather than a balcony that was very private on the ravine side of the building," Ms. Stewart notes. "On the other side is Bloor."
