This two-bedroom unit was the first opening of its size in the high-rise Domain building in the past two years and provided about 1,300 square feet of living space. The difficulty of scheduling tours around the owners working from home meant only a few visitors signed up, but one was quick to put in an offer.
“In this building, not a lot of large, south-facing units come up,” agent Dino Capocci said.
“Sometimes you don’t get a lot of showings, but the right buyer comes in and loves the unit.”
What they got
The Kay Gardner Beltline Trail and Mount Pleasant Cemetery can be seen from nearly every room of this 1,325-square-foot unit, as well as from the balconies off the kitchen and open living and dining areas.
There is ensuite laundry and two bathrooms, including the main five-piece, plus a storage locker and parking space.
Monthly fees of $1,003 cover water, heating and concierge and the use of the gym, party room and pool.
The agent’s take
“It was stunning because where do you get unobstructed south views over a park-like setting like Mount Pleasant Cemetery? You’ll never lose it, so there’s value to that,” Mr. Capocci said.
“And it’s an amazing location, not just for the views, but it’s a few minutes to Yonge Street, and Mount Pleasant Road and Bayview Avenue for shopping.”
