Address: 65 Harbour Square, Unit 3508
Neighbourhood: Harbourfront

The place

The building dates from the 1980s, before the age of all-glass exteriors and open floor plans. It has an old-school closed-off kitchen, and a real wood-burning fireplace—a rarity in a condo.

The history

The sellers have owned various units in the building, but this one was their home. They turned the second bedroom into a study.

Here’s the living room:

The owners still have an impressive CD collection:

Here’s the dining area:

A newer condo would have the kitchen combined with the living area, but some buyers may prefer the separation, here:

Big selling point

The unit’s windows face the waterfront, so it has views of Lake Ontario in every room. With the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal steps away, last-minute trips to the Islands are always a possibility.

Possible deal breaker

Life on the downtown waterfront is tempting in theory, but the area is directly under the Billy Bishop Airport flight path. Anyone who isn’t a major aviation enthusiast may tire of the noise.
