The history

A busy medical professional has lived here since 2011. He hired Powell & Bonnell to handle the the interior design, and opted for a masculine aesthetic. Now, he’s moving to southern France.

Big selling point

The building has must-haves for the rich and powerful, like a covered and heated driveway that prevents residents from catching chills while waiting for their cars. That could explain why it’s the building of choice for industry titans and literary luminaries. Even Mayor John Tory and his wife, Barbara Hackett, have a suite here.

Possible deal breaker

For $2.5 million, one could get a lot more square footage elsewhere in the Annex. But this place doesn’t have the upkeep problems of a 100-year-old Annex home.
