Sale of the Week: $1.7 million for a polished King West penthouse
A stylish 1,500-square-foot penthouse in the middle of King West. It’s got two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two walk-out terraces and exposed concrete ceilings and floors.
The sellers, who work in tech and education, bought the place in 2012 for just over $1 million. They made some recent upgrades, including new bathrooms, light fixtures and wooden flooring on the terraces.

The sellers listed the home for just under $1.6 million and then moved out, so the agent enlisted Becky Freeman of The Property Stylist to stage the space. On offer night, the three top bids were within $1,000 of each other. One of them, for $131,000 over asking, had a quick two-week closing date, which the sellers accepted.
