Condo of the Week: $380,000 for a surprisingly spacious South Parkdale suite
The Place: A spacious two-bedroom near Queen West with a balcony and parking space for under $400,000.
Bragging Rights: The second bedroom has a view of the action inside Allan A. Lamport Stadium, which hosts events like the Caribbean Carnival’s king-and-queen competition and Canada Wolverines home games (that’s rugby, by the way).
Big Selling Point: It’s close enough to Queen West that the owner could walk home from the Gladstone or the Drake in 10 minutes, but far enough that there aren’t screaming drunk people outside the window at 2 a.m. every night.
Possible Deal Breaker: The lower-than-expected price may have to do with the towers under construction next door, which could mean dusty dinners on the balcony for at least a couple years. It’s also near one of the most crowded streetcar stops in the city—though at this price the buyer will probably have money left over for a car.
By the Numbers:
• 830 square feet
• $564 in monthly maintenance fees
• 10-minute walk to the Drake
• 8 foot ceilings
• 2 washrooms
• 1 parking space
