Price: $1,579,000
Previously sold for: $1,074,080, in 2015, pre-construction

The place

A spacious corner suite in a new building at Avenue Road and Pears Avenue. There are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout.

Here’s the living area:


The dining area:


And the guest bedroom:


The master bedroom has balcony access:


And here’s the master ensuite:


The view from the balcony:


The history

An investor bought this place before it was built and never ended up living here. The only occupants have been guests of his. All the lived-in touches are the work of a stager.

Big selling point

Despite being one of the smaller new buildings in Yorkville, this one has some of the best amenities, including a yoga studio, a screening room, a sundeck, a fire pit and a lap pool with cabanas.

Possible deal breaker

The kitchen is sleek and seamlessly integrated, but the fridge and freezer are on the small side. That could mean frequent trips to Whole Foods. (Fortunately, it’s a five-minute walk away.)


By the numbers

• $1,579,000
• 1,368 square feet
• $912 in monthly maintenance fees
• 167-square-foot balcony
• 3 bathrooms

Published on: February 15, 2017

Address: 274 Carlton Street
Neighbourhood: Cabbagetown
Agents: Richard Silver and Jim Burtnick, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage
Price: $1,598,000
Previously sold for: $480,000, in 1999

The place

A Victorian semi with a spiral staircase that extends from the basement all the way to the third floor.

The kitchen is right at the front of the house, which is a little unusual:


The living room is at the back:


And here’s the dining area:


A closer look at that spiral staircase:


The basement is finished:


And there’s a bedroom down there:


Also a sauna:


And here’s a look at the backyard:


The history

This 19th-century home was completely redesigned in the 1980s. It now has a completely open floor plan—not only on the first floor, but also on the second and third floors, each of which has a single bedroom and ensuite bathroom.

The master bedroom is on the second floor:


Yup, the walls are full of storage:


Bask in the 1980s splendour of this ensuite bathroom:


There’s another bedroom on the third floor. Most people seem to prefer a little more separation between their sleeping area and their showering area, but this house doesn’t play by the rules:


Big selling point

The skylight at the top of the spiral staircase provides plenty of natural light:


Possible deal breaker

The 1980s redesign was done for a couple with one child. Families with more children might not find the layout to their liking.

By the numbers

• $1,598,000
• $6,996.69 in taxes (2016)
• 2,500 square feet
• 20.5-by-135-foot lot

Rental of the Week: $8,500 per month to live higher in the sky than almost anyone else in Toronto

Address: 386 Yonge Street
Neighbourhood: Downtown Core
Agent: Sky View Suites
Price: $8,500 per month

The place

A furnished penthouse suite on the second-highest floor of the city’s tallest condo building.

The history

When Aura, a 79-storey condo tower, was completed in 2014, it towered over almost every other feature of Toronto’s skyline. (First Canadian Place, Scotia Plaza and the CN Tower are taller, and the Trump Tower is also taller if you count the giant spire on the top of the building.) The building is known for its three-storey retail podium, home to a 40,000-square-foot gym and a Bed Bath and Beyond. (It’s also more dubiously known for the derelict shopping mall in its basement.) This unit’s landlord, an entrepreneur, bought the suite pre-construction in 2012. He says he has rented the place to at least one professional athlete. This time around, he’s hoping to snag an affluent professional who doesn’t mind paying a little extra for a home in the clouds.

Here’s the living area:


And there are two bedrooms, both with dramatic city views. Here’s one:


And here’s the other:


Major perk

With floor-to-ceiling windows that span the length of an entire wall, the penthouse has uninterrupted views of the city.

Possible deal breaker

This unit has no balcony, so forget about enjoying the morning breeze 800 feet above street level. Also, the den has no windows—but it does have a gas fireplace.

By the numbers

• $8,500 per month
• 2,100 square feet
• 10-foot ceilings
• 3 fireplaces
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 parking spaces
• 1 den
• 0 balconies
