The place

A two-bedroom unit on the second floor of Kings Landing, a building near the foot of Spadina Avenue.

The history

The 11-storey building dates to the 1980s. In 2005, when the seller moved into this unit, it had been used for years as a rental property and it was in rough shape. In 2010, she gave place a facelift. Now she’s moving into a bigger home in Etobicoke.
