Condo of the Week: $1.7 million for a downtown suite with valet service

Condo of the Week: $1.7 million for a downtown suite with valet service

Address: 77 Charles Street West, Unit 901
Neighbourhood: Bay Street Corridor
Agent: Hooman Aliary, Harvey Kalles Real Estate, Brokerage
Price: $1,680,000

The Place: A masculine and modern two-bedroom apartment just down the street from the Windsor Arms.

Big Selling Point: The spa-like master bathroom seems like a perfect place to unwind—but, unlike a spa, it’s not full of strangers in terrycloth robes.

Bragging Rights: The home has two spacious balconies, including one with an aerial view of the ROM’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

Possible Deal Breaker: Valet service is included, but that won’t stop the owner from getting stuck in traffic farther east on Charles Street, which endures frequent lane closures because of its near-perpetual condo construction. To the west, meanwhile, is a quiet old section of the University of Toronto, which isn’t likely to sprout towers anytime soon.
