Condo of the Week: $690,000 for two storeys and a rooftop terrace near Queen Street West
The Place: 1,000 square feet spread over the two upper floors of a four-storey building. There’s an open-concept kitchen, living room and dining area on the main floor of the unit. The second floor has two bedrooms.
Bragging Rights: The home’s private 225-square-foot rooftop terrace allows for barbecues and sunbathing.
Big Selling Point: Despite being on a relatively quiet street, this building couldn’t be closer to the cultural and commercial action of downtown. Kensington Market, Chinatown, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Four Seasons Centre, the TIFF Bell Lightbox and the Queen West shopping district are all less than ten minutes away on foot.
Possible Deal Breaker: The unit faces a courtyard encircled by dozens of other condos. Modest occupants will want to make frequent use of the custom blinds installed on all the windows.
By the Numbers:
• 1,001 square feet
• $637 in monthly maintenance fees
• 2 floors
• 2 washrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 1 underground parking space
• 1 rooftop terrace
