A newly renovated townhouse near Spadina and St. Clair, only blocks from an LCBO and a Loblaw’s, and a quick jaunt away from Casa Loma.
The home was built around 20 years ago, but it was totally redone when the owner bought it in 2015. The only area left untouched was the basement bathroom.

Big selling point
At first glance, four floors may seem like a lot to traverse, but there’s an elevator that goes to all of them.
Possible deal breaker
There isn’t much in the way of grass here—the outdoor space is mostly decks and balconies—but that means less necessity for gardening and lawn care.
