Condo of the week: 25 Ritchie Avenue

A two bedroom at 25 Ritchie Avenue in the Roncesvalles Lofts comes to market for $710,000. Designed by architect David Anand Peterson, the Bauhaus modernist style building fits comfortably into the Roncy 'hood, largely dominated by low-rise developments and funky industrial loft conversions.

The corner unit at Roncesvalles Avenue and Dundas West is a fun and creative space, featuring elements like an expansive chalkboard wall, perfect for kids or the teacher in the family. There's also a large balcony and a master and ensuite with his-and-hers double sinks.

The c-shaped five-storey building has plenty of outdoor space, if you can't make it over to High Park. Most of the 39 lofts overlook a shared central courtyard, garden patios, and the roof offers an oversized green terrace with a sweet west end view.

GOOD FOR

Someone who wants a house but can't afford downtown prices. Remember when you could buy a move-in ready home for under $700K? It wasn't that long ago but in today's hefty real estate market, condo ownership can make more sense. This unit is cheaper than a house and almost as spacious at 1,200 square feet.

MOVE ON IF

The chalkboard wall might be a bit kitschy for some and distracting from the rest of the decor. While it's a fun idea, a simple text or posted note might suffice.
