Address: 70 Roehampton Avenue

Neighbourhood: Davisville

Agent: Mark Jones, Re/Max Professionals Inc., Brokerage

The property: This top floor of this penthouse, accessible by private elevator, has a massive 1,840-square-foot rooftop terrace overlooking the city.

The history: The sellers, a couple, purchased the condo from the builder in 2011. It came with luxurious finishings like oak flooring throughout, and marble countertops in the bathrooms and kitchen.

The fate: The neighbourhood, near Yonge and Eglinton, is already a lively place. Once the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is finished, in 2021 or so, it will be one of the most transit-accessible places in the entire city.

The sale: The uniquely huge terrace made it difficult for the agent to set a price, because there haven’t been many comparable sales in the past few years. He originally listed the place for $2.49 million, and later lowered it to $2.2 million to create more interest. The buyers, who registered the only offer, jumped at the new price.

By the numbers:

  • $2,100,000
  • $9,176.38 in property taxes (2014)
  • 2,249 square feet of living space, approximately
  • 1,840-square-foot terrace
  • $1,204.81 in monthly maintenance fees
  • 95 per cent of list price
  • 27th floor
  • 7 days on the market
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 3 bathrooms
  • 2-car garage
