Condo of the Week: $530,000 for one of the Junction’s few three-bedroom condos
Address: 1 St. John’s Road, Unit 302
Neighbourhood: The Junction
Agent: George Chisholm, Royal LePage, Johnston and Daniel Division, Brokerage
The place: A rare three-bedroom condo in a mostly condo-free neighbourhood.
The history: The top five floors of this mid-70s office building were converted into 15 condos about 15 years ago. The original owners of this south-facing unit sold it three years ago to a couple who modernized it with bold wallpaper, modern paint colours, new hardwood flooring and one standout chandelier.
Big selling point: People near and far are finally realizing how much the Junction has to offer, from indie brewpubs, to fancy fishmongers, to high-end Scandinavian furniture shops. With single-family home prices climbing even faster here than elsewhere in the city, this condo could be considered an affordable alternative for a small family.
Possible deal breaker: The cabinetry is original and could stand to be replaced, but the counters recently got a subway tile facelift, so the kitchen doesn’t look too dated.

The view from the entryway.
The living room has a swanky (and very Junction-esque) chandelier.
The reverse view, with the dining area visible in the background.
The cabinetry is starting to show its age, but the subway tile on the countertops is relatively new.
There’s a little room for a breakfast bar.
The unit has three bedrooms, which is a rarity in the Toronto condo market.
Another bedroom, with fancy wallpaper.
And here’s the master bedroom.
And the large shared bathroom.
