Condo of the Week: $1.3 million for half of a Summerhill mansion
The place: The top two levels of a Georgian-style mansion on a quiet street near Yonge and St. Clair.
The history: This 6,500-square-foot home was built in 1925 and later divided into two condos, each with two storeys, in 1984.
Big selling point: The condo has the curb appeal and space of a typical Summerhill single family home, but without the need to maintain a lawn or the $2-million asking price.
Possible deal breaker: Parts of the kitchen date back to the 1980s, and it shows. The layout and size are enviable, though, so it’s nothing a few tiles and new cupboards couldn’t fix.
By the numbers:
• $7,880 in taxes (2015)
• 2,955 square feet inside
• $450 in monthly maintenance fees
• 8-foot ceilings (approximately)
• 3 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 3 parking spaces
• 2 terraces
• 2 wood-burning fireplaces
• 1 jet tub with skylight above
