Condo of the Week: $1.2 million for an unpretentious Yorkville penthouse


Address: 21 Scollard Street
Neighbourhood: Yorkville
Agent: Robert Archambault, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage
Price: $1,229,000

The Place: A 1,248 square foot penthouse in one of Yorkville’s smaller condo buildings. There are two bedrooms, a balcony, two parking spaces and an open-concept living and dining area.

Big Selling Point: It may be the nicest apartment in this swanky 2005 low-rise, according to the agent, who also lives there. If so, it’s because the owner undertook a top-to-bottom renovation in 2012 that modernized the flooring, countertops and lighting. A large, eco-friendly bioethanol fireplace in the living room completes the ambiance.

Bragging Rights: Yorkville may be rich in a lot of ways, but it’s poor on green space. Having a home that abuts tree-lined Town Hall Square is bound to make neighbours jealous.

Possible Deal Breaker: With a Sub-Zero fridge and Miele dishwasher, the kitchen is fancy—but it’s also awfully small. Good thing you could practically fling a croissant from the balcony and hit Café Boulud.

• $1,229,000
• 1,248 square feet
