Listed for less than a quarter million, this one-bedroom suite was a tempting package among multiple buyers, young and old alike, says agent Lucais Shepherd.
"It's an all-around great unit," he says. "And it's a great price point."
The 17th-floor suite is conveniently located in a fairly new high rise within an upscale condominium community near shopping centres, golf courses and a movie theatre, plus the Kipling subway and GO stations.
Residents are also an elevator ride away from fitness and recreation facilities, such as a gym and party room. "The building has awesome amenities, like a swimming pool, whirlpool, guest suites and gorgeous hallways and corridors," says Mr. Shepherd.
Stylish finishes were also used inside this unit, from ceramic floors in the foyer and bathroom to wood floors in the kitchen and living room. "It was impeccable and well decorated," says Mr. Shepherd.
An island gives some visual separation between the open-concept cooking and dining areas. Living-room furniture is arranged by the floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors to the balcony.
"You see the western skyline of Toronto and Mississauga," says Mr. Shepherd. "To the south, you could also get a glimpse of Lake Ontario."
Also vital to the unit are ensuite laundry facilities and underground parking. Utility costs are incorporated into the monthly fee of $431.
