Condo of the Week: $560,000 for a townhouse-like condo in Corktown
A one-bedroom unit with its own front door, just steps from both the King and Queen streetcar lines. There’s an open-concept living room, kitchen and den up front, and a bedroom, bathroom and walk-in closet in back.
Here’s that front door:
The kitchen has a seven-foot-long island:
And it borders on the living room:
A big rug is key for floors like this one, especially in winter:
The current tenant has turned the back of the room into a Netflix-and-chill space:
And here’s the bedroom. That closet is a walk-in:
The bathroom is of the basic (and purple) variety:
The owner bought the unit three years ago but has since gotten hitched and moved into a house. He’s currently renting out the condo, so he might not be in a huge rush to sell.
Big selling point
The unit has one of three private roof terraces. It’s a great space for cocktail parties or lounging in the sun.
The new owner will be able to catch many a sunset from the private terrace:
There’s also a pretty nice communal space:
Also communal: these lounge chairs:
Possible deal breaker
There’s no access to the building’s hallway from this unit, so that means having to exit the condo in order to reach the parking garage, amenities or rooftop terrace. That is, however, a small price to pay to be able to step out the front door and onto the street—especially if the new owner has a dog.
