Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for a townhouse with easy access to Trinity Bellwoods Park
The Place: An end unit in an upscale townhouse development one block south of Queen West. There’s an open-concept living space on the first floor, a huge master suite on the second floor, two bedrooms on the third floor and a spacious rooftop deck.
The History: This recently registered complex is located on the site of a former transmission and gear shop, in between a red-brick loft conversion and an old brick building that now serves as offices. The units were designed by Cecconi Simone, and the development won a 2013 BILD design award.
Big Selling Point: The owner added lots of little luxuries, including heated marble floors in the master en suite, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, lighting to illuminate art on the staircase, a third bathroom on the top floor and extra insulation to prevent noise from leaking through the single shared wall.
Possible Deal Breaker: In this price range a buyer might expect a lawn. Then again, few people get to live so close to Trinity Bellwoods Park, the city’s unofficial backyard. It’s also possible to plant some greens on the rooftop deck; the garden hose hookup is ready to go.
By The Numbers:
• 2,100 square feet inside
• 500-square-foot rooftop deck
• 8.5- to 10-foot ceilings
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 1 parking space
