Address: 225 Merton Street, Unit 303
Neighbourhood: Mount Pleasant West
Agent: Susan Lee and Ron Chichora, Slavens & Associates Real Estate Inc., Brokerage
Price: $619,000

The Place: A two-bedroom corner apartment on the third floor of a mid-rise building in Davisville.

Bragging Rights: Guests will gravitate to the spacious kitchen, which boasts a centre island and enough counter space to draw envious stares from those used to cramped condo cooking quarters.

Big Selling Point: The views of the tree-lined Kay Gardner Beltline Trail from the balcony, kitchen and living room feel more cottage country than midtown city.

Possible Deal Breaker: You’ll have to invent a clever art scheme to address the very long wall running the length of the living and dining room.
