The place

A two-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse in Yorkville. The two-storey unit is one of 25 at 8 Sultan Street, built in 1999 by Terradigm Developments. It’s within walking distance of four subway stations, the ROM, U of T, and the hustle and bustle of Bloor.

The history

The owners bought the place brand new as a shell and referenced an art deco apartment they’d seen in Paris as inspiration. Their design included period-appropriate mouldings, wall panelling and doors as well as converting the second-floor guest room into an office. With plans to downsize, they’ve just put the home on the market.

The tour 

The penthouse is located on the top two floors of this nine-storey building, a neighbour to the Windsor Arms Hotel.

Here’s the foyer. A German artisan took three years to complete the custom maple wall panelling.
