When it was built in 1982, it was one of the area’s first condominiums and many residents have lived here for over 30 years, so there’s a sense of community, says listing agent Liora Tal. “The building is quiet, safe and particularly well-managed, offering world-class services and amenities.”

“We felt it would appeal to someone coming out of a larger home looking to simplify their life without compromising space and with the ability to maintain an active lifestyle,” says co-listing agent Daniel Bloch. “The larger principal rooms can easily accommodate furnishing from a family home, which makes it an easy transition from freehold to condo living.”

The agents say the 1,540-square-foot suite has a penthouse feel. It has a formal foyer with a private attached storage room, an entertainment wing and a primary bedroom suite that can accommodate two king-sized beds. This retreat has a dressing room, a walk-in closet and a renovated en-suite bathroom with a tub and walk-in shower, Bloch says.

Tal says, “The original floor plan was opened up to accommodate a modern kitchen that is larger than found in many houses.” It features Italian porcelain flooring, quartz countertops, stone mosaic backsplash and an island with a breakfast bar.

“This building offers an all-inclusive lifestyle with club-like amenities including valet parking for owners and guests, indoor pool, racket sports and basketball courts, a Japanese garden, landscaped resident terraces with barbecues, a library and two large event spaces. The monthly maintenance fee covers all utilities plus cable, internet and home phone.”

As well, says Tal, “The building is surrounded by its own extensive and professionally maintained green space….The two-level lobby is attractively furnished and staffed with a concierge and a valet 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
