More than a dozen buyers booked appointments to view this one-bedroom corner suite in the Lonsdale high-rise in Forest Hill across from Upper Canada College.

What They Got:

A few years ago, a 40-year-old rental building was converted to house upscale condominiums, including this 1,338 square-foot suite, which is just one of four units on the 14th floor.

Designer finishes include hardwood floors and pot lights in the principal rooms and carpeting in the bedroom off the foyer, in addition to granite counters, mirrored backsplashes and stainless steel appliances in the galley kitchen.

Floor-to-ceiling windows facing north and east illuminate the open living room and adjacent dining area.

A three-piece bathroom and en suite laundry facilities are part of the package, as well as a locker and parking spot.

There is a monthly fee of $1,149, including heating costs and recent renovation of the lobby, elevators and gym. Residents can also use a heated outdoor pool, car wash facilities and 24-hour concierge services.

The Agent’s Take:

“It was an oversized one-bedroom with over 1,300 square feet that had a beautiful view of Upper Canada College and Forest Hill,” says agent Elli Davis. “The building offers much larger units, so this is actually small for the building.”

The unit also benefits from having a sought-after address. “It’s in a luxury building that offers great amenities with valet parking,” says Ms. Davis. “It has easy access to downtown, right between Forest Hill Village and Yonge and St. Clair, so it’s really nicely located.”
