The history

This suite is on the 32nd floor of Clear Spirit Condos, where the shared amenities include a rooftop pool and a hot tub. The unit’s floors are made of hardwood reclaimed from one of the original Gooderham distillery buildings. The landlord, who is also the listing agent, bought the suite pre-construction in 2010. She and her husband were living there, but now they’re moving to a house in Lawrence Park.

This is a corner unit, so the balcony isn’t the usual tiny flake of concrete: it’s 275 square feet, and it wraps around the two exterior walls.

Possible deal breaker

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet with sliding doors—but it’s inside the ensuite bathroom. Things could get a little crowded if two or more people are simultaneously trying to get washed and dressed:
