Condo of the Week: $2 million for a King West penthouse with a built-in fish tank

Address: 478 King Street West, Penthouse 2
Neighbourhood: Waterfront Communities-The Island
Agents: Jamie Erlick and Diana Bahrin, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $1,959,000

The Place: A two-storey, two-bedroom penthouse at King and Spadina.

Bragging Rights: Guests will have no trouble distinguishing your condo from the many others on King. The building is easily identifiable by the giant, bright-yellow doorframe of the neighbouring restaurant, Weslodge.

Big Selling Point: The living spaces are all on the first floor, so the only reason to hoof it up the stairs will be for some sun on the terrace (or not: the equally-as-sunny balcony is accessible through most main-floor rooms).

Possible Deal Breaker: While the custom, built-in fish tank is fun, it will require some upkeep, lest the owner’s view between the living and family rooms become algae-tinged.
