Condo of the Week: $950,000 for a King West townhouse where a Raptor used to live
The place: A townhome in a 16-storey building, with a balcony and plenty of storage space.
The history: This eight-year-old unit was originally rented to a member of the Toronto Raptors, but has mostly been lived in by the current owner and her student-aged daughter, who is heading off to study in the Caribbean. The owner made plenty of upgrades after the baller moved out, including a kitchen revamp and the addition of some custom closets to make extra room for boots and shoes.
Big selling point: The home has a private garage right behind the kitchen, which is not only convenient, but also provides an extra level of security.
Possible deal breaker: Both the front and back windows look across at other condos. Good thing the unit comes with motorized blinds.
