Condo of the Week: $750,000 for a College Street condo with a park view


Address: 799 College Street, Unit 301
Neighbourhood: Trinity-Bellwoods
Agent: Tim Bosworth, Brad J. Lamb Realty Inc.
Price: $749,000

The Place: A two-bedroom pad with a large balcony and lots of luxurious touches, including kitchen cabinetry and a double-sink master vanity by Scavolini.

Big Selling Point: The unit faces south, toward the trees of Fred Hamilton Park, making the balcony a serene place to barbeque or clink cocktails on a hot summer night.

Bragging Rights: The location is a mature hipster’s dream. Across the street is the Monocle Shop, which sells stylish gifts, and next door is Bar Isabel, chef Grant van Gameren’s Spanish-inspired tavern. The bars and galleries of Ossington Avenue are close, but not too close. And Trinity Bellwoods Park is a three-minute bike ride to the south.

Possible Deal Breaker: The building has Manhattan-style stacked parking, but there’s only one space allocated to this unit. There is, however, a bike room where two-wheelers can be stored for free.
