The 25-year-old building is located across from Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

The action: In a 25-year-old residence across from Mount Pleasant Cemetery, owners tend to stay longer than counterparts in newer towers nearby. So this two-bedroom corner suite was met with multiple offers in May.

“It’s a building not a lot of units come up for sale in, so … you might see two come up a year,” agent Dino Capocci said.

Even though the unit needed some work, the big thing is you get two bedrooms and two bathrooms … for under $600,000 at Yonge and St. Clair, which is hard to find.”

What they got: This fifth-floor suite provides an 860-square-foot plan with a Juliet balcony and windows facing east and north in the open kitchen, dining and entertaining area.

Essentials include five appliances, including laundry machines, a locker and parking. Monthly fees of $1,000 cover utilities.

The agent’s take: “It’s an average size, just under 900 square feet,” Mr. Capocci said.

“It has a beautiful view of Mount Pleasant Cemetery. The big thing is the view won’t change. We call those forever views.”
