LISTING AGENT Christopher Bibby, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc.
The Action: Upwards of 60 buyers pre-arranged a private tour of this two-bedroom corner suite in the X Condominium residence.
What They Got: On the 40th floor of a relatively new high-rise, this northwest corner unit was given a wide and shallow layout with walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and dark hardwood floors in the bedrooms and central living, dining and cooking areas.
Other assets include six appliances and two four-piece bathrooms, including a master ensuite, plus parking.
The monthly fee of $409 covers the cost of water and heating and care of a gym, media and party rooms, as well as a rooftop garden with a pool, hot tub, barbecue station and fireplace.
The Agent’s Take: “Our north view eventually would be obstructed by another building, so it took a while to sell,” says agent Christopher Bibby. “But the west view was to be totally unobstructed … all the way to Mississauga, Etobicoke and the Financial District.”
Despite the unit’s open and airy feel, it offered privacy. “The floor plan was quite smart because the bedrooms were completely separated,” Mr. Bibby said. “It’s a great layout ideal for a couple or even a single guy.”
