Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for a family-sized condo with a lake view

Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for a family-sized condo with a lake view


Address: 628 Fleet Street, Unit 3403
Neighbourhood: Harbourfront
Agent: Kenny Shim, ReMax Condos Plus, brokerage; and Stephanie Campbell, Royal LePage Your Community Realty, brokerage
Price: $1,470,000

The Place: A three-bedroom condo with views of the the Toronto Islands and the downtown skyline.

The History: The building is only about four years old, but this particular unit has already been upgraded. The owner added a feature wall that houses a TV and fireplace, a bar with a built-in wine fridge, a dramatic custom headboard in the master bedroom and built-in cabinets in the den.

Big Selling Point: This 2,000-square-footer has as much space as the average Etobicoke bungalow, making it one of those rare downtown condos that’s actually big enough for a family. Also, it offers access to the ultimate kid-friendly amenity: an indoor pool.

Possible Deal Breaker: Billy Bishop Airport is just metres away, which means the buzz of turboprops every few minutes. It could get even noisier if the city opts to allow jets. That said, having an airport within walking distance also has its upside.
