Condomonium: $1.3 million for a walnut-panelled unit overlooking Upper Canada College
ADDRESS: 619 Avenue Road, Unit 502
NEIGHBOUROOD: Yonge-St. Clair
AGENT: Janet Lindsay, Chestnut Park Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
THE PLACE: A two-bedroom suite in The Lonsdale, a midtown apartment building that neighbours storied boys’ school Upper Canada College. The builders are also responsible for such venerable structures as the Park Plaza Hotel and the Royal Bank Plaza.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The space has undergone a whopping $800,000 in renovations and has opulent features (like silk wallpaper and walnut-panelled walls) that are rarely seen in condos, even high-end ones.
BIG SELLING POINT: The storage-obsessed will surely appreciate the effort to create a closet or compartment for, well, everything. The master bedroom has two shoe closets and 14 custom accessories drawers with walnut inlays.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With all that wooden panelling and cabinetry, we’re a little disappointed that none of the bookcases reveals a hidden passage.
