Condomonium: $2 million for a roomy apartment in Thornhill’s amenity-rich Avignon
ADDRESS: 7071 Bayview Avenue, unit 508
AGENT: Jerry Hammond, RE/MAX Ultimate Realty Inc.
THE PLACE: A two-bedroom-plus-den condo in Thornhill’s Avignon on Bayview. The low-rise, boutique-style development is home to 81 suites, and amenities include an indoor pool, sauna and boardroom (in case you really, really want to take your work home with you—or annoy your downtown colleagues by making them drive to Thornhill). The interior is designed by Tas DesignBuild, the firm behind King West developments M5V and Zed Condominiums.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: While downtown condos often look out onto other downtown condos, the concrete jungle doesn’t appear anywhere in this unit’s sightlines. Instead of viewing construction cranes, you can check out the treetops of the nearby Don River Valley (deer have even been spotted in the area).
BIG SELLING POINT: Space. At nearly 3,000 square feet, you’ll have plenty of room to stretch out. Your friends in the 416 paying twice the price for half the space are sure to be envious.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: For an urban animal that works in the core, commuting into the city from Markham might not be worth it.

• 2,800 square feet
• $1,770.25 a month in maintenance fees
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 electric fireplaces
• 2 walkouts
