Condo of the week: 85 Bellwoods Avenue

The new trend of constructing semi-detached condos on a residential street is changing the urban landscape. Take this new build, for example. It's a modern stacked duplex at 85 Bellwoods Avenue, priced competitively at $1,189,000, and redeveloped on the site of a former bungalow (oddly resembling one of T.O.'s unsettling transformer substations).

The monster condo-alternative has become quite popular in recent years. Nearby streets like Markham and Palmerston feature a handful of towering modern duplexes (much to the ire of some neighbours) geared for those who might be scared off by the city's premium listings for a single family dwelling.

This owner-designed property has an open layout, large windows and a classy wood staircase. The home is three-storeys -- ample space at 1,700 square feet -- and a narrow backyard that's still larger than a standard condo balcony.

MOVE ON IF

You don't want the hassle of running the condo board...yourself. You're basically sharing the costs of home ownership with the attached neighbour. The low maintenance at $199/month barely covers the administrative fees.
