Within a townhouse complex between Lake Shore Boulevard and Lakeshore Village Park, this three-storey unit was the sole vacancy in late October. No offer date was set, so two buyers quickly registered bids.
“Right now, if a property is under $1-million, things are still moving nicely,” agent Jenelle Cameron said. “But anything over $1-million is a little sluggish, so there’s got to be something really unique about it in order for it to go.”
What they got
This nearly 20-year-old townhouse can be entered through a common courtyard or via a garage behind the main floor family room.
The second floor is a designated living and dining area with hardwood floors and cooking station in the corner with an island and walkout to a balcony.
The third floor accommodates two bedrooms, including one with a walk-in closet and one of three bathrooms.
Monthly maintenance fees are $257, plus utilities.
The agent’s take
“It’s such a great, entry-level property for people who want to get into that neighbourhood, which has been growing in popularity,” Ms. Cameron said. “The streetcar [line] is right there and the community is building with shops and restaurants.”
Although this unit is on the smaller side, it has many traits of a freehold home. “It’s a nice alternative for couples entering the market, especially if you have the need for more space or another floor,” Ms. Cameron said.
And you have a double garage and own private front entrance, so it feels like a freehold home, but it’s a condo so you don’t have to worry about all the maintenance.”
