The place

A two-bedroom penthouse unit on the seventh floor of a mid-rise condo building located just south of the 401.

The history

The sellers bought the unit six years ago, around the time Tribute Communities finished the building. The suite came with upscale finishes, including herringbone wood floors and marble in the master ensuite. The listing agent says the sellers are “reluctantly” putting the unit on the market, because they want to live closer to family.

Big selling point

The 2,000-square-foot terrace was made for entertaining under any conditions. The unit comes with $10,000 storm-resistant umbrellas sourced from South Beach, Florida.

Possible deal breaker

Some might favour a more open floor plan with a wider footprint. But with nearly 2,400 square feet to work with, there are many ways the space could be rearranged.
