Done Deal – 1 Bedford Rd. NO 2101

In a new luxury high-rise on Bloor Street, just across from Varsity Stadium by the Royal Ontario Museum, this two-bedroom plus den suite was initially listed for $1,795,000 and later reduced to $1,750,000. Nine serious buyers had private tours before one signed a deal.

What They Got

On the 21st floor of One Bedford, this 2,091-square-foot corner suite has unobstructed views down to the CN Tower with nine-foot tall windows in each room, including the den, an open entertaining space and a dining area, which has a balcony, as well as an eat-in kitchen with a granite-topped island.

The master was outfitted with broadloom carpeting rather than hardwood floors like the rest of the suite, access to a second outdoor space and the larger of two full bathrooms.

Additional luxuries include a powder room and high-end Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, along with a locker and parking spot.

Heat and hydro are not covered by the monthly fee of $1,290, which pays for 24-hour concierge and operating of a gym, indoor pool, hot tub and party room.

Local amenities also surround the building, which is literally steps from St. George subway station, designer boutiques on Bloor Street and esteemed restaurants in Yorkville, not to mention fine art galleries and museums.

The Agent’s Take

“The location in this building was key really … because it’s right on Bloor,” says agent Elli Davis. “The view was spectacular south and east on the 21st floor, so it had a very spacious, open feeling.”

The suite also provided less work and more space than other options. “It was a brand new condo that was very lightly lived in,” Ms. Davis states. “It was probably on the larger side.”
