Welcome to the MASH where we gossip about current real estate listings.


SOLD - 8 Dovercourt Road 1106 - WEST QUEEN WEST

SOLD - 8 Dovercourt Road 1106 - WEST QUEEN WEST

This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo on the top floor of the Art Condominiums at 8 Dovercourt Road just south of Queen West.

It is a building that was designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, the same people behind the house at 214 Dunvegan Road in Forest Hill...

And by Oleson Worland Architects.

The interior was designed by 3rd Uncle Design, a firm co-owned by Paul Syme, John Tong, and Arriz Hassam, husband of Canadian House and Home Editor-in-Chief, Suzanne Dimma who have recently renovated their Dufferin Grove house from when it looked like this...

This is a 1124 square feet condo with good storage, a west facing balcony and a north facing balcony with good views (for now)...

It is surprisingly bright and feels larger than 1125 square feet.

There is just no room for a dining room.  

As it is now, there is a tall table in the kitchen/dining area that looks like it is used as a kitchen counter as well as a dining table.  

I suppose the sun room that only has a couch in it could be used as a really small dining room, but I think that space would be better as an office.  Or perhaps a nursery or play room if you had kids.

The master bedroom feels smaller than the second bedroom and could always be switched.  But then your master faces the building to the west.

There is a garage parking spot, a good communal roof top deck, a theatre, and a gym.  Unless, of course, you want to join the gym across the street at 99 Sudbury...

But if you are paying $736.80 /month condo fees, that might be a little much...

Especially when the condo gym isn't so bad (it needs a bike)...

99 Sudbury is also home to the Cool City Oyster Yard that apparently has a Sunday caesar menu, so that's a plus...

Plus Memory Lane and Co. restaurant at the base of this building.

This penthouse condo was listed at $749,000.  It took 44 days, but it finally sold...

For $729,000.

For a 2 bedroom penthouse with this light in this location!?!  What am I missing?
