Selling for 103 per cent of the listing price in less than two weeks, this stacked one-level condo townhouse is a corner end unit.

“When our seller client purchased this property, it was painted in dark colours, felt very ‘cave like’ and had no upgrades. Our client saw the potential and cheered up the space with a fresh, neutral colour palette and used fine finishes that made a big impact. The property received a lot of attention due to its great location, the wonderful terrace and the fact that it is a corner unit,” says listing agent Liora Tal.

It is walking distance to parks, Queen St. W. and Liberty Village where there are many shops, restaurants and clubs.

Renovators and investors were drawn to this four-bedroom, two-bathroom home. It offers a great opportunity to create a modern single-family home or it can be converted into an income-producing property with excellent rental potential, says listing agent Daniel Bloch.

The living room has built-in shelves. The eat-in kitchen has a ceramic backsplash and floors. Two “good-sized” bedrooms share the upper level with a four-piece bathroom. Two bedrooms and a three-piece bathroom are on the lower level, which has a separate entrance.

Double closets and hardwood floors are other highlights of the semi-detached home.

The 33×123-foot lot is close to Bathurst Street, the TTC, the Hearthstone Valley Greenbelt and West Don Parklands. The south-facing back yard overlooks a ravine.
