Real Estate


Condo of the Week: $2.6 million for a skylit penthouse above the Yorkville Whole Foods

Condo of the Week: 77 Avenue Road, penthouse 1
Address: 77 Avenue Road, Penthouse 1
Neighbourhood: Yorkville
Agent: Sarah Giacomelli and Jimmy Molloy, Chestnut Park Real Estate Limited, Brokerage
Price: $2,595,000

The Place: A two-bedroom modernist penthouse in the Yorkville building that houses The Yorkville Club and Whole Foods.

Bragging Rights: The building, with its distinctive Venn diagram-shaped windows, is the work of star architect Jack Diamond, a.k.a. the man behind the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

Big Selling Point: The dining room is both unique and spectacular, with glass walls that will add a certain sense of performance to mealtimes. It’s also the perfect space to reenact any conference room scene from Suits.

Possible Deal Breaker: Those who’ve never much enjoyed white parties or the whole Dîner en Blanc concept, may feel some speedy redecorating is in order.

    The Good – lovely location and good layout
    The Bad – crappy kitchen with what appears to be entry level appliances…IMHO dated interior
    The Ugly – good luck with entertaining on the patio facing noisy Avenue Road

    The Realtor – why is the property not listed on Sarah’s site? Non-descriptive feature sheet…and I do mean non-descriptive

    water closet = toilet stall; hopefully with an exterior venting fan…..

    This place needs to be re-staged, STAT! 1992 called, it wants its furniture and art work back!
