Condo of the week: 19 Brant Street
The spacious corner unit near King and Spadina is an adults playpen, that is, according to the listing agent. Kinky mental picture aside, the realtor isn't kidding around. There's 1,600 square feet of toys---the condo-sized terrace alone fits a four-person hot tub, pool table, heat lamp and lounge area.
Located in the Quad Lofts at 19 Brant Street, the almost $1.4 million two bedroom is more of a luxury playground than a typical condo in the city's fashion district. One of the largest suites in the nine-storey building, it's priced for the high-end professional who seeks a trendy boutique space rather than a miniscule unit in a soaring Yorkville high-rise.
The concrete interior has some nice design touches to soften the industrial feel of the condo. The kitchen features a slated wood ceiling that visually separates the cooking area from the rest of the open space and the master has floor-to-ceiling windows and decorative wood pieces to flatter the blank walls. The centerpiece of the condo is the open fireplace which also houses a built-in flat screen television and finished with a grey slate tile.
The King West neighbourhood is a fashionista's playground, lined with stylish clothing stores, high-end restaurants and nightclubs. Work, play or just stay home and have a cocktail on your new 800 square foot terrace.
Guest suites. The building features two private guest rooms which are far cheaper than staying at the Thompson or any other downtown hotel. These suites are comfortable and typically include a full kitchen and use of the building amenities like the fitness studio.
MOVE ON IF
You like to cook at home.The design of the kitchen leaves much to be desired given the awkward distance between the sink and the fridge. Additionally, you might find the open space makes it difficult to watch TV or do anything else while you're cleaning the dishes.
