Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for a sprawling Queen West bachelor pad with an impressive master bathroom
A two-level corner penthouse on the 15th and 16th floors of The Morgan, a 1998 building near Queen and Spadina. The place is set up as a one-bedroom suite, but it’s big enough that it could be converted into two bedrooms.
The Art Deco-inspired building has a rooftop deck, a fitness centre, a yoga studio, saunas, a shared dining room with a kitchen, a lounge, a billiard room and a movie theatre. Parts of Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game were filmed in the lobby, which has a sculpture of Ulysses and a curved staircase.
In 2012, when the seller first bought this unit, the master bedroom’s ensuite bathroom had already been enlarged and the second bedroom had been converted into a walk-in closet. He knocked down the wall between the closet and the bathroom to create a continuous space, and he did the same thing downstairs in the living room and dining area. He also added an island and a bar in the kitchen and gave the cabinets a $6,000 paint job.

Big selling point
There are two terraces: one on each floor. The one by the living room is 700 square feet, which is bigger than some people’s entire apartments:
Possible deal breaker
Not every buyer will dig the fire-engine-red kitchen cabinets and walls, but a few coats of primer would fix that.
