This top-floor corner suite offers a desir­able split-plan lay­out (bed­ rooms on either side of the liv­ing space) with three walkouts as well as abund­ ant stor­ age with mul­ tiple walk-in closets and a locker,” says list­ing agent Liora Tal.

“When one thinks of the pent­house level, they often ima­ gine being very high in the sky,” says co-list­ing agent Daniel Bloch. “This feels more like a boutique build­ ing with only 22 levels.”

Tal says, “The condo real estate mar­ket was exper­i­en­cing a slight down­ward shift in demand dur­ing our list­ing period, however we were uniquely posi­tioned as one of only a hand­ful of units in this size and price point in the city’s core. We had a steady num­ber of show­ings and two offers.”

“The condo under­ went a soph­ist­ic­ated renov­a­tion by the owner,” Bloch says. “The eat-in kitchen has gour­met European appli­ances and extra pantry space. It’s ideal for host­ing a large event, yet feels intim­ate enough for weeknight din­ners.”

The foyer has a closet and the primary bed­room has his-and-hers closets and a walkout to a bal­cony. The second bed­room has a walk-in closet. A sep­ar­ate den, a four-piece bath­room with a soaker tub and a laun­dry room with a walk-in closet are other high­lights.

“Those downs­iz­ing from a lar­ger home, given its gen­er­ous scale and num­ber of bed­rooms, were among those inter­ested in the suite", says Tal.

“A sprawl­ing and open-concept liv­ing/enter­tain­ing space and king-sized primary bed­room means you can bring your exist­ing fur­nish­ings with you,” Bloch says.

“The sep­ar­ate home office/den eas­ily trans­forms into a third bed­ room when grandkids come to visit.”

The build­ing, con­struc­ted in 2009, has recently ren­ov­ated com­mon areas. Amen­it­ies include a 24-hour con­ ci­erge, an indoor pool, a gym and a land­scaped ninth-floor ter­race with a water foun­tain.

“Yonge and Eglin­ton is ideal for those seek­ing to live in an excit­ing hub of activ­ity and entertain­ment, with end­less shops and res­taur­ants at your door­step,” he says.

“New buildings are pop­ping up con­stantly. You have dir­ect links to down­town, with prom­ise of unlim­ited city access with the near-com­ple­tion of the Eglin­ton LRT.”
