The property

A two-bedroom, two-level penthouse in a condo tower near Yorkville.

The fate

The buyers already own the neighbouring penthouse suite, so they considered this a golden opportunity to nab more living space, along with unobstructed southwest views of the city and 1,400 square feet of wrap-around balcony space. With the condo board’s approval, they should be able to combine the two units.

The sale

The agents priced the unit at $2,350,000, figuring its large floor plan and penthouse prestige would lure in some high rollers. In the end, though, the neighbours’ offer, for $150,000 under asking, was the only one.

By the numbers

• $2,200,000
• $8,900 in taxes (approximately)
• 1,820 square feet
• $1,400 in monthly maintenance fees
• 15 days on MLS
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 1 parking space
