The buyer just knew this was the right house. “The sellers’ and the buyer’s mothers shared the same name, which felt like a ‘ sign’ for all, so the buyer has named the home in ( the mothers’) honour and made a special plaque,” says listing agent Liora Tal.
Suite 113 has a desirable split plan, with bedrooms separated for privacy. Also, “the suite was designed in a way that every room has a window and gives the feeling of being in a bungalow,” she says.
The building, which was registered in 1995, appeals to retirees and downsizers. Tal says, “The generous size of 2,154 square feet allows people to keep beloved furnishings and have room to entertain guests and overnight visitors.”
The corner suite has a penthouse feel. Tal says that although being in a penthouse has benefits, you can feel removed from your surroundings. “This suite benefits from the space of a penthouse but being one floor above garden level means you can sit outside and enjoy the nature that is all around you.”
The living and dining areas have built- in units throughout to house and display keepsakes. Two sets of french doors leading to a balcony provide treetop views of the property and create a private and peaceful spot despite being close to Bayview and Finch avenues.
Other suite features include a powder room, a fireplace, hardwood floors, a laundry room with a sink and a second bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
Tal says, “We were scheduled to list the property in March but chose to delay until the first week of June due to the fact that many of the building occupants are in the high risk age for COVID-19.”
