Condo of the Week: 33 Jackes Avenue, Suite 801Click to view gallery
 

Address: 33 Jackes Avenue, Suite 801
Neighbourhood: Rosedale-Moore Park
Agents: Ferne Sherkin-Langer and Nina Castle, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $6,495,000

The Place: A large two-bedroom suite with direct elevator access.

Bragging Rights: The 1,100-square-foot terrace comes with a built-in set of binoculars, providing prime views of downtown. If the owner prefers a more scenic view, a second, smaller terrace looks northeast towards the Rosehill Reservoir. (No binoculars there, though.)

Big Selling Point: Square footage. At more than 4,000 square feet, downsizers get the convenience of condo living (including valet parking, a car wash and a 24-hour concierge) in a unit whose size rivals that of a house.

Possible Deal Breaker: Between all the built-in shelving and textured walls, there are plenty of places for dust to settle. A good cleaning service is obligatory.
