Condomonium: $2.3 million for a giant two-level suite in Yorkville

ADDRESS: 3 McAlpine Street, Unit 508

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Yorkville

AGENTS: Jim Burtnick and Andy Taylor, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage

PRICE: $2,250,000

THE PLACE: A two-level, three-bedroom condo in the Domus, a mid-rise building in the upper reaches of Yorkville. The structure’s imposing name matches its commanding exterior—the arched windows are as gothic as you can get without settling for a church conversion.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: It’s not a penthouse, but it’s still the largest suite in the building. Formerly two units, the condo spans 3,600 square feet and boasts two terraces on the east and west fronts.

BIG SELLING POINT: This place has curves. The unit goes beyond the typically boxy condo look with a circular breakfast bar, sloped ceilings on the lower level and a rounded staircase.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Carpet muffles sound and is cosy on the feet, but we must admit that the broadloom throughout the second level looks a touch less elegant than the hardwood floors below.

• $2,250,000
