The building is located in the West Don Lands, just a javelin toss away from the Pan Am Games Athletes’ Village, where 10,000 of the western hemisphere’s fittest people will bunk in July. We featured another of 47 River Street’s penthouses last year.

Condo of the Week: $1.4 million for a roomy, if dated, Forest Hill condo

Condo of the Week: Forest Hill

Address: 425 Walmer Road, 6B
Neighbourhood: Forest Hill South
Agent: Mirella Cesario
Price: $1,399,000

The Place: A two-storey apartment in a boutique building near St. Clair and Spadina.

Bragging Rights: In a city where a 1,700 square foot bungalow sells for over a million dollars, this home, which comes with private elevator access to the unit, over 3,100 square feet of space, two storeys, two parking spaces and a shared rooftop terrace with a sprawling view of the downtown skyline and the Nordheimer Ravine, could almost qualify as a deal.

Big Selling Point: The solid-oak staircase, complete with custom wrought-iron pickets and an oak handrail. It has the kind of grandeur that new contemporary glass-and-steel condos just can’t match.

Possible Deal Breaker: There are only 17 units in the complex, which means it should be nice and quiet—but if you’re the type who likes total anonymity in your apartment building, you might be better off in a giant tower elsewhere.

By the Numbers:
• $1,399,000
• 3 bedrooms
3 bathrooms
2 storeys
• 2 parking spaces
