9 Jackes Avenue

Condo of the week: 9 Jackes Avenue

$4.5 million buys you a two bedroom, three bathroom gallery-style condo near Yonge and Summerhill. Technically, the fourth floor suite at 9 Jackes Avenue is a two-plus-one with the option to convert the large den into another bedroom. The owner is Bob Harding, the vice-chair of the Art Gallery of Ontario and an art collector as seen throughout the home.

The space which takes up the entire floor, was renovated and redesigned a few years back by architect Mark Stringer and designer Doug Gill. Much like the AGO, the reno was meticulously planned to accommodate the extensive art collection with an open floor plan and expansive walls for displaying paintings and sculptures.

Another highlight are the multiple rooms for entertaining. Unobstructed interior sight lines from front to back, and the modern chef's kitchen is a social destination for cooking. There's two private elevators and the "porno room" seems like a pleasurable place to entertain (seriously, check out that flashy living room art).

GOOD FOR

Parking. While you rarely need to drive in this walkable neighbourhood, the suite includes three car parking and an oversized storage locker. There's also an option to purchase a fourth spot, if you have visitors or need extra room for displaying your Back to the Future DeLorean.

MOVE ON IF

You need two storeys. While spacious like a mini bungalow in the sky, the unit is contained to only one floor and two large bedrooms. The monthly fees are more than most rentals at $2,937, and if maintenance is required in a smaller building like this one, there might not be enough dough in the reserve fund.
