“The best layout and best view” is what the listing told me when I saw it on the MLS. Hmmm… I was puzzled because the listing also told me that it was facing south, which to my knowledge points directly into the concrete wall of 750 Bay Street!
Curious, I booked an appointment because after all, maybe the suite was high enough to garner a better view than I thought.
When I arrived, the layout seemed okay – not for everyone, but alright – though the view was definitely something other than “best”. It’s fair to say that if you are in an “09” suite anywhere from the 3rd floor to about the 30th, your view will mostly definitely be the north face of The Penrose Condo a few metres away.
When I say the layout is not for everyone, it comes from the idea that certain people are very particular about the amount of light they have in their bedrooms. Since this bedroom is in the middle of the suite, the only available light must enter from the heavily frosted sliding barn door that creates the divide between the kitchen and the bedroom. Not everyone’s cup of tea!
Still, considering it’s 535sq.ft. that is being worked with, the suite makes sense for a single professional looking to have a cozy place downtown. Two people, though, would start to feel quite tight together.
Check it out if you don’t believe me. I’m certainly honest, though there’s nothing better than seeing things for yourself!
