Condo of the Week: $1.7 million for a Mimico townhouse with the view of the lake

Address: 5 Marine Parade Drive, Unit 121
Neighbourhood: Mimico
Agent: Steven Maislin, Re/Max Realtron Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $1,698,000

The Place: A large townhouse near the lake in south Etobicoke.

Big Selling Point: The house is across from Humber Bay Park East, where it’s easy to launch a kayak into Lake Ontario. There’s also the Martin Goodman Trail, a waterfront cycling and jogging path that continues all the way to downtown. (All the nearby athletic possibilities may help explain why Blue Jays and Raptors have called this complex home.)

Bragging Rights: The place was meant to have three bedrooms, but the original owner insisted that it be built with a huge master suite, instead. The room has a spacious walk-in closet, a fancy en suite bathroom and a big sundeck that offers a peaceful lake view.

Possible Deal Breaker: Despite the condo boom, there are still relatively few restaurants and shops in Mimico, meaning whoever buys this place could end up spending a lot of time in the car. Thankfully for them, there’s a private garage with room for two vehicles.
