Condo of the week: 65 St. Mary Street

Among the various advantages to condo living, a gorgeous view is on the top of many people's list. This 42nd floor unit at 65 St. Mary has one of the better ones out there, looking across U of T and Queen's Park before the tall buildings of the skyline rise in the distance.

65 st mary street torontoThat's a good thing, as the interior itself is — dare I say it? — rather pedestrian for the price. Perhaps it's the cookie-cutter staging or the ill-placed column in the dining room, but it just doesn't look particularly inspiring, even if it's clearly a nice place to live.

65 st mary street torontoGood For

Criticisms of the staging aside, this condo will have broad appeal based on the fact that it could be turned into a three bedroom if you dispensed with the office/den. That's a good size for the area. Anyone who likes gazing upon his/her city in awe will also be partial to this one.

You want more character. It's not just the furnishings that make this unit look a bit anonymous. If you're looking for a warm-hued space that you can accentuate with nice lighting, this one will pose challenges.
