Stylish Queen West condo scores bid in under two weeks Add to ...

1169 Queen St. W., No. 622, Toronto



TAXES $2,754 (2013)


LISTING AGENT Anil Khera, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.

The Action: This two-bedroom unit was one of the more stylish options available at the Bohemian Embassy in West Queen West, so it scored about 20 showings and 10 open house visitors. A proposal of $455,000 was accepted in the second week of listing.

What They Got: A couple years ago, a modern building was completed with hundreds of suites, like this sixth-floor model with nine-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and south-facing windows, as well as a locker and parking below.

From the foyer, guests are directed through the kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, marble backsplashes and an island, to access the open living and dining area along the sliding doors to a Juliet balcony.

A second Juliet balcony is featured in one bedroom, but the other has a private bathroom and his and her closets.

A full bathroom and laundry machines round out wet stations in the unit, which owes $580 monthly towards the cost of water, heating, concierge, gym and party rooms, including one with a rooftop deck.

The Agent’s Take: “There was no staging at all because the condition of the unit, as well as the furniture, accessories and artwork, were all showroom quality,” says agent Anil Khera. “It’s a standard two-bedroom and two-bathroom unit with a very nice layout and it’s very bright.”

The mid-rise also has a following among buyers. “Bohemian Embassy was one of the first buildings finished in that corridor,” Mr. Khera notes. “The neighbourhood is incredibly active and vibrant with lots of shops, galleries, and the Gladstone and Drake hotels close by.”
