Condo of the week: 35 Hayden Street
Use the words "penthouse condo" in Toronto these days and the person you're talking to will likely conjure up images of a palace in the sky with a $5+ million price tag. And they'd be mostly right to do so. There are, however, a few exceptions out there that are a bit more attainable.
This top floor unit at 35 Hayden St. is listed at just under $2 million. That's not even remotely cheap, but when you compare it to multi-level penthouses in newer towers, it's not in the same league. Yes, this suite is slick, but it doesn't scream high roller.
It's a two bedroom plus den with a beautiful en suite and a well equipped kitchen that sports a lovely view of Midtown Toronto. Located near Yonge and Bloor, the location is ideal for someone who likes to be in the heart of the action and not reliant on a car for transportation.
A buyer who likes the status conferred by a penthouse, but who doesn't need the ultimate entertaining space. This is a very nice condo, but it's not designed to be a cocktail party hub.
You don't need a top floor suite. If space is a major consideration, there are larger units out there in this price range. Households with multiple drivers will also have to compromise given the single parking spot.
