Condo of the Week: $2.5 million for an Islington penthouse with its own wine room
The Place: A cherry-hued two-bedroom penthouse with a climate-controlled wine room and two wet bars, located just east of Islington station.
Bragging Rights: At 800 square feet, the terrace is bigger than some apartments. And it doesn’t hurt that building residents have access to a shared tennis court and indoor salt-water pool.
Big Selling Point: Nearby Sherway Gardens rivals Yorkdale Shopping Centre in terms of high-end offerings. Plus, Saks and Nordstrom are on the way.
Possible Deal Breaker: For diehard urbanites who think “west end” means High Park, Islington could be a a long commute, even with direct indoor access to the nearby subway station.

• 800-square-foot terrace
