Real Estate


Condomonium: $3.5 million for a Yorkville suite with a wonderfully excessive decor scheme

ADDRESS: 80 Yorkville Avenue, unit 1401


AGENT: Janice Fox, Hazelton Real Estate Inc., Brokerage

PRICE: $3,450,000

THE PLACE: An opulent two-bedroom suite in 80 Yorkville, a full-service building with valet parking, a concierge service, a gym and a yoga centre.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: While sharp edges and sleek finishes are pervasive in downtown condo towers, this suite boldly declares its commitment to luxury with hand-gilded ceilings, Schonbek chandeliers and a mirrored tile bathtub that begs for a Cleopatra–style milk bath.

BIG SELLING POINT: It’s available fully furnished. Working from the marble desk in the library would bestow a sense of gravity on even the most mundane office task.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The spirit runs counter to the rising popularity of minimalist living.
