Condo of the Week: $1 million for a hip townhouse next to the National Ballet School

ADDRESS: 277 Mutual Street

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Church-Yonge Corridor

AGENTS: Diane Speer and Jayna Tyne, Royal LePage Urban Realty

PRICE: $995,000

THE PLACE: A three-bedroom brick townhouse in Radio City, a residential development built next to the National Ballet School during the institution’s massive overhaul in the 2000s.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The space’s artsy decor, skylights and upgraded lighting are courtesy of current owners Barr Gilmore and Michel Arcand, designers whose other collaborations include the Tim Burton exhibit at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and the Blue Line Room at the Gladstone Hotel.

BIG SELLNG POINT: The townhouse’s residents have access to the gym and other amenities in the neighbouring condo buildings, but pay much lower maintenance fees than the towers’ residents.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The galley kitchen is pretty and bright, but many buyers will be looking for larger spaces for cooking and entertaining.
