The history

The sellers sought out this unit as a quiet alternative to the crowds and noise of Yorkville. Now they’re selling so they can travel.

Big selling point

The building is located in a sleepy residential area, but it’s still walking distance from two subway stations and the many shops and restaurants on Bloor Street.

Possible deal breaker

At this price, some buyers might expect a view—but this place doesn’t have one. It’s a second-storey condo, and both balconies face an internal courtyard that’s hemmed in by trees. For anyone who wants peace and seclusion, though, it’s perfect:
