Condo of the Week: $580,000 for a townhouse in the Beach with a sauna in the bedroom
The Place: A two-bedroom, three-storey townhouse with distinctive architecture (the exterior of the building, built in the 1970s, resembles a boat sail) in the Beach.
Bragging Rights: The unit backs onto Neville Park ravine. The owner can spend lazy Saturdays sitting on the deck, taking in an assortment of wildlife, including a small herd of deer and Neville, the local coyote.
Big Selling Point: The R.C. Harris Water Treatment plant—the city’s largest—is just across the street. Its haunting art-deco style and quiet surrounding park and beach areas make for running routes with great scenery.
Possible Deal Breaker: Although the master bedroom is on a floor by itself (with a spacious en suite and sauna), the loft-like, open-concept entrance from the stairway is not for everyone.

• 1,700 square feet
• $575 in monthly maintenance fees
• 350 square foot deck
• 3 storeys
• 2 bathrooms

• 1 parking spot
