Condo of the week: 300 Manitoba Street
Guess the asking price of this modern three bedroom, two bathroom condo in Mimico? Located at 300 Manitoba Street, just west of the city near the Lakeshore, the two-level loft is an expanded living space at 1,200 square feet, and features designer touches like a main floor fireplace, exposed brick and a built-in breakfast bar.
The floating staircase leads to a very open-second level, overlooking the living room. There's three small bedrooms that can be converted into an office space and floor-to-ceiling windows. Included in the fee is one underground parking spot, a storage locker, and a few amenities like a fitness studio.
This family-friendly community near South Etobicoke is a neighbourhood on the rise, although that's still up for debate. Poised for redevelopment, the area has a few promising new builds, more housing, restaurants and retail shops on the way. Real estate's more affordable than in the city, and the neighbourhood is accessible by transit, plus there's a nice view of the lake.
So what's the asking price? This three bedroom unit is going for $454,900. Would you live here?
Your inner child. With 17 foot ceilings, the main floor is an adult's playground. All this place needs is a trampoline in the living room and a nearby LCBO to fill up that extensive wine rack in the kitchen.
MOVE ON IF
You need quiet space and a walkable neighbourhood. The second floor is completely open and the bedrooms have an awkward layout, more conducive to two bedrooms than three. With a walk score of 59 ("somewhat walkable"), you're likely to take a car more often, even to get to the local Timmy's.
What do you think? Is this condo worth the money?
