This updated, one-bedroom suite is within a 10-minute walk of the Massey Creek green space, a golf course and Victoria Park subway station, but most visitors who visited in early June were likely drawn by the low $329,900 price tag.
“It’s really a first-time buyer’s home because it’s so inexpensive,” agent Jenelle Cameron said.
“There were quite a few [units] for sale in there. My seller had done pretty extensive renovations, so it looked amazing because a lot of the units have not been renovated.”
What they got
The previous owner of this third-floor suite recently replaced its original 1970s decor with new laminate flooring throughout and a more updated bathroom and kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances.
The layout is fairly modern with the dining area open to a larger entertaining space with a balcony at one end.
The unit also comes with laundry machines and parking. Monthly fees are $555 to cover utility and cable costs, as well as 24-hour security, pool and gym.
The agent’s take
“This unit had a nice view because there’s a ravine at the back of the building,” Ms. Cameron said.
“[Also], the seller did the kitchen and added different closet doors, so little touches like that make such a huge difference.”
