Condo of the Week: $1.3 million for half of a Summerhill mansion

Condo of the Week: $1.3 million for half of a Summerhill mansion

Address: 67 Alvin Avenue
Neighbourhood: Summerhill Agent: Hannah Slan, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage Price: $1,299,000

The place: The top two levels of a Georgian-style mansion on a quiet street near Yonge and St. Clair.

The history: This 6,500-square-foot home was built in 1925 and later divided into two condos, each with two storeys, in 1984.

Big selling point: The condo has the curb appeal and space of a typical Summerhill single family home, but without the need to maintain a lawn or the $2-million asking price.

Possible deal breaker: Parts of the kitchen date back to the 1980s, and it shows. The layout and size are enviable, though, so it’s nothing a few tiles and new cupboards couldn’t fix.

By the numbers:

• $1,299,000 • $7,880 in taxes (2015) • 2,955 square feet inside • $450 in monthly maintenance fees • 8-foot ceilings (approximately) • 3 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms • 3 parking spaces • 2 terraces • 2 wood-burning fireplaces • 1 jet tub with skylight above
