Condomonium: $800,000 for a three-storey penthouse in the Beach
ADDRESS: 2012 Queen St. E., Suite 305
NEIGHBOURHOOD: The Beach
AGENT: MaryAnne Runnalls, Chestnut Park Real Estate
THE PLACE: A three-storey penthouse loft in the Beaches that’s steps away from Kew Gardens. The tiered shape of the building means each floor sits further back than the floor below, so although it’s right on busy Queen Street East, it’s still removed from the hustle and bustle.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: A good story: the current owner is a marketing executive at Universal Music Canada and an accomplished pianist who has accompanied renowned classical stars the likes of Andrea Bocelli and Hayley Westenra.
BIG SELLING POINT: Music lovers will not only delight in imagining the sweet sounds that once emanated from their new digs, they’ll also enjoy sipping a glass of wine on the balcony while watching the Beaches International Jazz Festival play out below.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: No gym, no pool, no squash court—if you’re in the market for a trendy condo with all the freshest amenities, look elsewhere.
