The action

The unit is in a building just five minutes from Bluffer's Park.Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd.

This two-bedroom, suite is a 30-minute drive from downtown Toronto, but five minutes to Bluffer’s Park and the beach. Of the dozen or so visitors, many considered the commute a fair trade-off given its $499,900 price. To nail down a deal, the buyers offered $66,100 over asking.

“The condo market downtown was starting to slow down a bit, so I wasn’t sure if it would be the same scenario in other areas of the city, like Scarborough, where this unit was,” agent Jenelle Cameron says. “But we decided to give it a go.”

“Units come up quite often, but this unit was different: It has an absolutely phenomenal view, and it was also finished so nicely inside.”

What they got

The L-shaped kitchen has marble countertops.Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd.

With unobstructed views of Lake Ontario, this south-facing suite has lots of natural light in both bedrooms and a wide terrace off the central living and dining area.

Clustered around the foyer is a full bathroom, a laundry closet with stacked machines and an L-shaped kitchen with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances.

The unit comes with a storage locker and parking. Monthly fees of $510 cover water, concierge and the use of fitness and games rooms and a rooftop terrace.

The agent’s take

The south-facing suite gets lots of natural light.Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd.

“All units have some [outdoor space] but not usually a big terrace like that,” Ms. Cameron says.

“And it had a built-in Murphy bed in the second bedroom, which doubled as an office, so that was a nice touch people liked.”
