The sellers of this two-bedroom-plus-den suite dreaded the idea of accommodating house hunters for an entire week in November. So they happily accepted a pre-emptive offer of $1,028,500 on the second day of marketing.
“We sold a similar unit for $950,000, but this showed a little better with the views, so we went with $998,500,” agent Dino Capocci said.
“Having two bedrooms plus a true, big den, parking and locker at Yonge and St. Clair for around $1-million, there’s a big market. A lot of people are downsizing and want to stay in the area. They don’t want an 800-square-foot, two-bedroom condo; it’s too small.”
What they got
This 15-year-old suite provides a 1,135-square-foot plan designed with an open dining area off the kitchen and adjacent living room with sliding doors to a balcony overlooking trees and rooftops of low-rise homes.
Classic hardwood floors flow throughout, including a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and five-piece bathroom.
Monthly fees of $901 pay for water and heating, as well as 24-hour concierge, fitness and party rooms.
The agent’s take
“In this building, the west views is what you want because it’s unspoiled and no potential to have something build in front of you,” Mr. Capocci said.
“The unit is also very stylish and has a nice split, two-bedroom plan with a nice den, which some people would use as a third bedroom.”
