Condo of the Week: $500,000 for a compact two-bedroom in Corktown
The Place: A two-bedroom corner suite on the fourth floor of a midrise building in Corktown.
Bragging Rights: The chevron and stripe accents on the walls (all hand-painted by one of the sellers, a Bay Street lawyer with an eye for interior design) keep this from being just another concrete-walled unit.
Big Selling Point: Location. The newly spruced up Corktown Common park is a short walk to the east, and the St. Lawrence Market is just as close in the other direction. You can also head north to King East’s design district and south to the Distillery District.
Possible Deal Breaker: The breakfast nook is perfect for cozy, at-home brunches. Invite more than a few guests, however, and they won’t have enough elbow room to butter their toast.
