The action

The unit has north-facing mountain views.

Re/Max Crest Realty

This two-level unit was listed mid-January and sold quickly. The buyer intends to live in the home.

“This offer came in early within three days of listing, and over the asking price, because the buyer was keen to get his offer accepted before more parties came to view the loft,” agent Paul Albrighton said.

Story continues below advertisement

“The seller decided to go with that one offer and secure the sale early instead of engaging in multiple viewings as is the trend in this market.” The deal closed Jan. 22.

What they got

A complete renovation included the installation of new floors throughout.

Re/Max Crest Realty

The 999-square-foot, one-bedroom loft with flex space is in a concrete and steel building, built in 1997, with northern mountain views. It is located in South Granville, steps to shops and transit.

The seller had purchased it in 2010 for $560,000 and hired an architect to do a full renovation, including features such as a new kitchen with black stone counters and stainless steel backsplash, wood flooring throughout, additional bathroom, updated main bathroom, new lighting and custom details throughout.

The agent’s take

“The demand for unique lofts and larger condos remains strong, and unique modern condos are still hard to come by,” Mr. Albrighton said. “Buyers are sourcing large one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes where they can combine their work space and living space.
