The Action: This fall, the Riviera community on the waterfront presented buyers with a few available suites, but few larger ones such as this two-bedroom-plus-den unit. Only 20 shoppers managed to see the tenanted space, but two visitors were serious enough to register offers.
What They Got: Within an established, two-tower residence is this 930-square-foot suite with nine-foot ceilings and coveted south-facing views from balconies off two bedrooms and a wall of windows lining a central den with glass partition walls to an open living and dining area with hardwood floors.
- To wash up, there is a U-shaped kitchen with granite counters, two full bathrooms and ensuite laundry facilities.
- The unit comes with parking and monthly fees of $784 for utilities, concierge, gym, pool and rooftop deck.
The Agent's Take: "It's got a lot of amenities, it's a huge building," says agent Ira Jelinek. "There was a lot of demand for it, though I was a little surprised because you have to compete also with all the Concord [CityPlace] buildings downtown."
The unit itself was also a great canvas for handy buyers. "It's original, but the people that wanted it wanted to put their personal touch on it," Mr. Jelinek adds. "It has a great lake view."
