The action: Toronto renters casually watched the condominium market for a year before they decided to buy and toured two contenders with stunning views. They presented an offer for this two-bedroom-plus-den corner suite at the Charlie building in mid-April, but it wasn’t accepted until after the weekend was over.

“[The seller] would not take a full price offer for record price with a deposit check and no conditions,” agent Pierre Carapetian said. “They wanted to wait. Meanwhile, I knew there would be an ice storm that weekend.”

What they got: Built a few years ago, this 1,434-square-foot unit is very modern with nine-foot ceilings, engineered hardwood floors and walls of windows. There is a balcony off the living and dining area.

There are two bedrooms, including one with a walk-in closet and five-piece bathroom.

There are two other bathrooms, laundry facilities and a sleek kitchen outfitted with an island and custom marble backsplashes.

The unit comes with a locker and parking. Monthly fees of $900 cover water, heating and 24-hour concierge, plus a gym, yoga room, entertainment centre and rooftop deck.

The agent’s take: “It’s a handsome building and [units] sell very well,” Mr. Carapetian said.

The unique layout provides panoramic views. “Even though it’s on the southwest corner, the way the apartment was laid, you saw south, west, east and north,” Mr. Carapetian said.

“The view is special, and the previous owner had done some upgrades … on better floors, built-ins and things like that.”
