Sale of the Week: The Queen West condo that proves an odd layout is no obstacle to a $1-million sale
A loft near Queen and Palmerston with a very unusual layout.
The master bedroom is all by itself on the main floor. A low wall separates it from the foyer:
It has a closet and ensuite bathroom:
The living and dining area is on the second floor:
A closer look at the dining area and kitchen:
Also on the second floor: a raised platform that can be used as a second bedroom. The sellers have even managed to cram a couch and coffee table in there:
And here’s the view back toward the entrance:
The sellers bought the unit when it was new, 17 years ago. They’ve done a little work over the years, including a kitchen remodel. They have a young child now, though, and are moving somewhere with a little more space.
The buyer travels a lot, so this low-maintenance condo was a perfect fit. He takes possession on May 15.
The unit, with its odd layout, isn’t for everyone, so the agent listed it at what he considered a relatively low price, in the hopes of attracting some interest. There was a lowball offer on day one, which the sellers rejected. Two days later, another offer came in, at $11,000 over asking. The sellers took it.
