With nearly 1,600 square feet, this apartment in North York is larger than most with a layout that includes three bedrooms and a den. When the long-term tenants moved out, it was quickly staged and put up for sale. Nine bids were submitted, with the winner increasing their initial bid to just $ 900,000 – as much as $ 240,005 above the bid price.
“Last time a great device [in the building] was sold in March, but it was a bit smaller – however renovated and updated as well – [being] a two-bedroom plus hollow unit, ”said Agent Jordan Glaser.
“The response was overwhelming because this was such a large unit and they are rare, so it’s a great alternative to a house. With 1,600 square feet, if you were to buy it in a semi-detached or townhouse, you would pay well over 1 million dollars. ”
What they got
The 40-year-old building towers over G. Ross Lord Park and Westminster Cemetery, and window walls allow sunlight to reach almost every room in this corner suite. There are two four-part bathrooms and a renovated kitchen with island, pantry and stainless steel appliances.
The unit comes with a storage closet and two-car parking. Monthly fees of $ 1,142 include supplies and cable, plus use of an outdoor pool.
“It’s an older building, so the units are significant,” Mr. Glasses.
“Looking to the northeast, it’s a residential area, so your line of sight goes all the way past the York region on a clear day.”
