LISTING AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: This two-bedroom corner suite at Ideal Lofts in Little Italy was toured by more than a dozen shoppers over two weeks, but the buyer was actually among the first few to request a private showing.

What They Got: The brick-and-concrete, mid-rise building contains loft-inspired suites, like this 1,009-square-foot unit on the third floor designed with nine-foot ceilings and walls of windows in the bedrooms and open living and dining area, which all have walkouts to a balcony.

Keeping things clean is made easy with two bathrooms, ensuite laundry facilities and a kitchen finished with hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and Caesarstone counters and island. The unit comes with a locker, but parking is rented monthly at $120.

Monthly maintenance fees of $631 cover water and heating costs, as well as a party room and visitor parking. A Shoppers Drug Mart is located at the base of the building, which is steps from streetcars, restaurants and bars.

The Agent’s Take: “College Street doesn’t have many condos and lofts, so this is in a real special area. People love Little Italy,” says agent Ira Jelinek. “There’s nothing typical in that building, [the units] are all different. This one was in high demand because it has two bedrooms, two washrooms and a balcony. It was a good corner unit.”
