Condomonium: $1.3 million for Charles Khabouth’s Casa Loma suite
ADDRESS: 1 Benvenuto Place, Unit 503
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Casa Loma
AGENT: Corinne Pencer, Slavens & Associates
THE PLACE: A two-bedroom suite in The Benvenuto, a modernist apartment building designed in the 1950s by Peter Dickinson (the architect behind the Sony Centre and Park Plaza Hotel) that recently went condo.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Though having top-rated restaurant Scaramouche on site is plenty to brag about, this unit has an even more intimate connection to the city’s food and entertainment scene: the current owner is Charles Khabouth, the “king” of countless clubs and restaurateur behind La Société and Briscola.
BIG SELLING POINT: The building is perched on a 4-acre hilltop and this condo faces south. That translates into a view to be envied—for instance, you don’t even need to get out of bed to enjoy the downtown skyline.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: You’ll second-guess whether your friends are coming by to see you, or to munch on lobster at Scaramouche.
