The place

A south-facing penthouse in a new building near Sunnybrook Hospital. The spacious unit includes a library and a dining room, and it has enough room for both a piano and a billiards table. It’s just one conservatory away from being the perfect setting for a real-life game of Clue.

Here’s the foyer:

The history

The building is three years old. The owner upgraded nearly everything in this suite, from the herringbone hardwood floors in the foyer to the custom drapery throughout.

Big selling point

The kitchen has marble countertops, soft-close drawers, built-in speakers, illuminated cabinets and a huge sink—plus appliances by Sub-Zero and Miele. With a new Whole Foods just down the street, the buyers will have no trouble hosting dinner parties:

Possible deal breaker

The view is a cemetery, which is considered bad luck in some cultures and just plain creepy in others. There is an upside, however: no other condo building will ever block that view.
