LISTING AGENTS Rose and Shirley Printz, Sutton Group-Admiral Realty Inc.
The Action: Earlier this year, a few homeowners in a boutique building near Yorkville were promoting their units, including this two-storey unit initially posted for $978,000. When no offers surfaced, the space was staged and relisted at $959,900. The new price spurred a buyer to strike a deal at $955,000.
What They Got: A small portion of the more-than-30-year-old building is composed of two-storey suites such as this 1,505-square-foot unit, which was modernized by Estee Design several years ago, complete with marble and Caesarstone counters, a breakfast bar off the island, stainless-steel appliances and white oak hardwood floors that extend from the kitchen to the dining area by the balcony, and entertaining space with a wood-burning fireplace.
The second floor features a den and two bedrooms, including one with a second balcony and one of three bathrooms.
The unit comes with laundry machines, a locker and two-car parking, plus monthly fees of $960 to cover cost for water, heating, concierge, rooftop deck, fitness, games and party rooms.
The Agent's Take: "Besides the location – which is in very high demand – it has the feel of a house, not a condo because it was two storeys and has a fireplace, which is quite unusual in a condo," agent Rose Printz says.
"Not only has everything been professionally redone, but it's high quality, like the appliances, hardwood floors and heated floors in the master bathroom."
