Condomonium: $2.6 million for a penthouse loft (with a sauna!) in Liberty Village
ADDRESS: 43 Hanna Avenue, Unit 711
NEIGHBOURHOOD: South Parkdale
AGENTS: Claude and Pierre Boiron, Coldwell Banker Terrequity Realty
THE PLACE: A spacious 3-bedroom penthouse in the Toy Factory Lofts, a century-old factory-turned-condo and one of Liberty Village’s most recognizable buildings.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Most upscale suites boast walk-in closets, but this loft has a bona fide dressing room. Two vanities will diminish traffic jams around the mirror, and suede tiles covering the entrance walls add a bit of drama. It’s even rigged up with a 22-inch plasma TV in case you need some distraction while helping your partner decide which shoes to wear.
BIG SELLING POINT: Opulence. While we love the rough-hewn detailing of more industrial-style lofts, there’s something to be said for marble bathrooms, beds on pedestals and a sauna in the master bathroom.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Liberty Village is uber-popular, but there are also plenty of haters out there who say it’s not family friendly and is cut-off from the city.
