Condo of the Week: $750,000 for a multi-storey penthouse in North Riverdale
The Place: A three-storey, two-bedroom penthouse in Riverdale with both north- and south-facing terraces. The building was originally built in 1911 as Bell Telephone’s headquarters, and was converted into twelve lofts in 2001.
Bragging Rights: Since there are no other buildings of this height immediately adjacent, the suite is completely private. The owner can look out over Riverdale knowing that no one is looking back in.
Big Selling Point: Residents report that there’s no noise transmission between units; the only way to know a neighbour’s taste in music would be to ask them.
Possible Deal Breaker: There’s no elevator (or doorman, hence the low maintenance fees) so prepare for a healthy three-floor walk up to your unit.

• 1,400 square feet
• $563.32 in monthly maintenance fees
• 10-foot windows
• 3 storeys
