This one was listed for $1,079,000 on October 12 before the owners reduced the price to its current $1,049,000 on December 1. It’s also available as a furnished rental for $4,700 a month.

The unobstructed view of the islands, Tommy Thompson Park and the revitalized Port Lands may be the property’s best feature.

Note the roller blinds.
