The history

The building was originally a 1930s banquet hall, but it was converted into condos in 1999. This unit’s owner is an entrepreneur who is now semi-retired and planning to spend more time at his properties in cottage country and the Caribbean.

Possible deal breaker

Like a lot of townhouses, this place has an overabundance of stairs, making it less than ideal for anyone with bad knees. But anyone who can manage the climb might appreciate the exercise.
