Condo of the Week: $880,000 for a townhouse with access to the best of Don Mills

Don Mills was designed in the 1950s to have four self-contained quadrants of housing connected by a ring road, The Donway, with a shopping mall at the centre. The mall was torn down a decade ago and replaced with the CF Shops at Don Mills, an upscale outdoor shopping plaza. This condo was added a couple years ago inside the ring road, where a Blockbuster once stood.
Big selling point
Despite the suburban location, the house is within walking distance of foodie-approved Fabbrica, a Mark McEwan restaurant. The shopping’s not bad either, with stores like Coach, Aritzia, Little Burgundy and Frank & Oak all nearby.
Possible deal breaker
The home is nearly ideal for a young family—except for the fact that there are only two bedrooms. The den is big enough to convert into a second kids’ room, but that would involve putting up a wall:
