Condomonium: $2.3 million for a downtown penthouse with a heart-stopping terrace
ADDRESS: 33 Charles Street East, Unit 4601
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Church-Yonge Corridor
AGENTS: Cameron Weir and Scott Hanton, Keller Williams Advantage Realty
THE PLACE: A southeast penthouse in the two-year-old Casa Condominio Residenza, a glassy downtown tower with an eye-catching overhanging concrete roof and nighttime lighting scheme.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Pretty impressive: the owner of the unit was part of a founding team for Zynga, a.k.a. the company behind our Farmville addiction. Even more impressive: the views from the wraparound balcony and rooftop terrace, which look over the city all the way to the lake.
BIG SELLING POINT: Location-wise, this building is pretty hard to beat. Bloor Street shopping, Yorkville and the Royal Ontario Museum are within walking distance and the business district is a very brief commute away.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The photos of the view were enough to have us swooning with jealousy—and dizziness. You might have to supply a fainting couch in the sunroom for guests that can’t handle heights.
