The Action: On a short street north of Yorkville boutiques, bistros and galleries, this three-storey townhouse was snatched up within a week in February. But the deal fell apart, so the sellers accepted an $847,000 bid from another buyer waiting in the wings.
What They Got: The 14-year-old mid-rise, called Domus, was built alongside stacked townhouses with street-level entrances, such as this upper-level unit with west-facing windows and a rooftop terrace on the third floor.
Inside, the nearly 1,500-square-foot space is an open entertaining area with hardwood floors and a gas fireplace flanked by doorways to a tiled kitchen, plus a glass-lined staircase up to an office and two bedrooms, including one with a cathedral ceiling and one of two full bathrooms.
The unit comes with stainless steel appliances, laundry machines, a locker and underground parking, as well as monthly fees of $527 for access to 24-hour concierge, a gym, guest suite and party room, among other things.
The Agent's Take: "The location is one of its key selling points: McMurrich is a lovely, quiet street, yet you're literally a stone's throw from Yorkville, Ramsden Park, Yonge Street, Bloor Street and the subway," agent Nigel Denham says.
"This is not in [the tower at] Domus, otherwise known as 3 McAlpine, where the maintenance fees doubles for comparable square footage, but you still have use of all the amenities."
Furthermore, this unit feels more like a house than a condo suite. "The beauty is you have your own street level front door," Mr. Denham notes.
