Condomonium: $2.5 million for a prim and trim midtown penthouse

ADDRESS: 336 Spadina Road, Penthouse 4

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Casa Loma

AGENT: Hannah Math Slan and Robert Michael Davidson, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

PRICE: $2,524,000

THE PLACE: A two-level penthouse that looks a stage set from a Nancy Meyers movie. It’s in the newly built Churchill Park Condominiums, a 14-storey cylindrical tower designed by Toronto’s Quadrangle architects (a firm famous for their proposal to put a green roof on the Gardiner).

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Exclusivity. Each of the building’s 14 floors is home to a maximum of four apartments, but if that’s not secluded enough, the penthouse also comes with a rough-in for a private elevator.

BIG SELLING POINT: Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, a wraparound terrace and two balconies, you’ll never risk vitamin D deficiency.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The white-on-white-on-white (on-more-white) colour scheme will give you jitters any time you even think of enjoying one of life’s stain-making pleasures (coffee, red wine, mud wrestling).
