Real Estate


Condo of the Week: $1.75 million for an Annex loft with a private rooftop patio

Condo of the Week: 391 Brunswick Avenue, Penthouse 1 Address: 391 Brunswick Avenue, Penthouse 1
Neighbourhood: Annex
Agent: Daena Allen-Noxon, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Johnston and Daniel Division
Price: $1,749,000

The Place: A two-level penthouse in the Schoolhouse Lofts, a 19-unit building that was previously home to Loretto College girls school. (We featured a neighbouring suite last year.)

Bragging Rights: You get the the majestic brick exterior of an educational institution, but none of the school-standard linoleum floors and fluorescent lighting. Instead, the interiors are fitted out with hardwood, marble and sparkly chandeliers.

Big Selling Point: The open kitchen and living room lend themselves to entertaining, while the bedrooms are tucked away in private corners of the suite.

Possible Deal Breaker: Plenty of nearby schools means plenty of nearby spots where students like to congregate—sometimes not so quietly.

By the Numbers:
• $1,749,000
• $1,248.08 in monthly maintenance fees
• 2,092 square feet
• 9.6-foot ceilings
• 3 bathrooms
