The history

The house was built in 2011 as part of a 12-unit rental development. In 2016, it and its neighbours went up for sale. Though the homes are freehold, each owner is required to pay a small fee (approximately $85) to cover snow removal, landscaping and the like.

Big selling point

This house doesn’t have a fancy wine cellar, like some others in its price range, but can temperature-controlled bottle storage possibly compare to the luxury of a personal elevator? The one at 300 Merton runs from the garage all the way up to the third floor, making those runs to the kitchen during a Netflix binge just a touch easier. It also makes the house accessible to anyone who isn’t physically able to climb stairs:

Possible deal breaker

There isn’t much of a backyard at this property, but the 476-square-foot rooftop terrace (bigger than some Liberty Village condos) provides plenty of outdoor space.

By the numbers

• $1,499,900
• $5,772.02 in taxes (2016)
• 1,732 square feet
• 476-square-foot rooftop terrace
• 3 bedrooms
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 parking spaces
• 1 elevator
