At the Granite Place, just north of St. Michael’s Cemetery, there were several suites for sale this June, but few had the advantages of this two-bedroom corner suite. House hunters appreciated the suite’s views both west and south toward the CN Tower and it pulled in two competing bids on its first day on the market.
“It is an exceptional unit and they don’t come up very often, so the buyers were aware of that,” agent Beth Sulman said.
“There were a lot of people that didn’t get a chance to see it, we had to cancel appointments that had already been booked.”
What they got
This 1,867-square-foot unit features walls of glass in every room except the two bathrooms, from a large window in the eat-in kitchen to a 25-foot long bank of windows in the living and dining area.
The principal room also has access to a 200-square-foot balcony and new custom shelving fitted around a faux fireplace with a marble surround.
The unit comes with stacked laundry machines, a storage locker and two-car parking. Monthly fees of $1,708 cover utilities and cable, 24-hour concierge and several recreational facilities.
The agent’s take
“It’s one of the largest units," and has a popular layout and spectacular view, Ms Sulman said.
“[Plus], the building itself has pedigree.”
