Condo of the Week: $1 million for a designer townhouse near Kensington Market

Condo of the Week: 56 Lippincott Street, #4

Address: 56 Lippincott Street, #4
Neighbourhood: Kensington-Chinatown
Agent: Michael Wacholtz, Keller Williams Referred Urban Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $1,049,000

The Place: A three-bedroom, three-storey townhouse in Lippincott Living, a complex with eight units at College and Bathurst.

Bragging Rights: Acclaimed interior-design firm Cecconi Simone has left its mark on several other residences in the city, but Lippincott is the first project it has taken on as a developer. Alongside architect Brad Netkin, Cecconi Simone designed the property from the ground up.

Big Selling Point: The master bedroom is more aptly described as a retreat: it’s private (it makes up the entire third floor), and it features a massive en suite washroom, a fireplace, a mini-bar, and a balcony that overlooks the city.

Possible Deal Breaker: The home is narrow—only about 14 feet across—but the 10-foot ceilings add space and depth.
