Condo of the Week: $2 million for one half of a Rosedale mansion
The Place: One of just two suites in a former single-family mansion in Rosedale. The home was gutted and professionally redesigned for its new life as a condo.
Bragging Rights: From the dark panelled walls in the study to the cathedral ceilings in the living room, the suite gives off a stately, European vibe.
Big Selling Point: The house-to-condo renovation is a good fit for downsizers, who get the peace (and curb-appeal) of a big Rosedale house without all the unnecessary space. There’s even an elevator for seniors with limited mobility.
Possible Deal Breaker: The second-storey deck has fantastic views of the lush back gardens—which is exclusively for residents of the neighbouring unit. The good news: they’re saddled with the full cost of its upkeep.
By the Numbers:
• 2,748 square-feet
• $151 in monthly maintenance fees
• 3 bathrooms
• 3 levels
• 2 bedrooms
• 1 study/games room
• 1 private elevator
