Condo of the Week: $700,000 for a two-level concrete suite near Roncesvalles
The Place: A family-friendly home in a five-year-old building. The kitchen, dining area and living room are on the unit’s upper level, while the bedrooms and family room are below.
Big Selling Point: Having a family room and second bedroom hidden away on the lower level means the owner can hide the inevitable kid-created mess while entertaining guests in the modern upstairs living room.
Bragging Rights: The location near High Park and Sunnyside Park is great for families with small children. The building is also just a crossing guard away from Howard Public School, which has a high Fraser Institute ranking.
Possible Deal Breaker: Although the kitchen has a nice big island and decent-sized pantry, it also has a low ceiling, small sink and electric stove. Gourmands may therefore want to upgrade the oven or buy a nice BBQ for the suite’s gas-enabled private terrace.
