The history

Built in 2009, Glas Condos has 16 storeys and 165 units. Most suites are accessible only through the lobby, but this townhouse has its own entrance off the street. The owners live in Toronto part-time and travel most of the year.

Major perk

Pay for street parking no more: the rent includes access to a private one-car garage.

Possible deal breaker

The rent is steep, and the place comes fully furnished, so personalizing the decor might be a hassle. But anyone with a taste for luxury and a need for a move-in-ready space might enjoy not having to make the trek to CB2, a block away.
