Sale of the Week: The $2.1-million Davisville condo that shows the value of outdoor space
Address: 70 Roehampton Avenue
Agent: Mark Jones, Re/Max Professionals Inc., Brokerage
The property: This top floor of this penthouse, accessible by private elevator, has a massive 1,840-square-foot rooftop terrace overlooking the city.
The history: The sellers, a couple, purchased the condo from the builder in 2011. It came with luxurious finishings like oak flooring throughout, and marble countertops in the bathrooms and kitchen.
The fate: The neighbourhood, near Yonge and Eglinton, is already a lively place. Once the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is finished, in 2021 or so, it will be one of the most transit-accessible places in the entire city.
The sale: The uniquely huge terrace made it difficult for the agent to set a price, because there haven’t been many comparable sales in the past few years. He originally listed the place for $2.49 million, and later lowered it to $2.2 million to create more interest. The buyers, who registered the only offer, jumped at the new price.
By the numbers:
- $9,176.38 in property taxes (2014)
