Condo of the week: 375 Sorauren Avenue
This townhouse at the bottom of a boutique condo near Roncesvalles is an understated example of the perfect home for a small family in Toronto. Alas, these days that comes with a $1.2 million price tag.
As steep as that is considering it's a 2 + 1 bedroom, the prices of detached homes in the surrounding area will make that number seem paltry. Toronto real estate is depressingly expensive if you're on the outside looking in.
So, someone who's been priced out of the detached market might set their eyes on a space like this. It might not be as spacious, but it doesn't feel cramped as many townhouses do. Someone even managed to put a piano in there without compromising the space.
The upstairs is less airy, but the master bedroom offers as much space as you actually need in a sleeping area, plus there's a huge set of windows overlooking the street. In a pinch, you could even get a third sleeping space together in the den, particularly for a younger child.
Housed at the bottom of 383 Sorauren, one of the benefits here is access to the amenities of the larger condo space. There's a beautiful gym and large gathering area, but the maintenance fees remain mostly in check at $675 a month.
Compared to the semi-detached houses across the street, I'd pick this townhouse any day.
Someone who loves the area but can't afford a detached home. Alternately, a family who's grown out of a smaller condo but doesn't need a ton of living space.
You need a yard. There's a nice little terrace at the front of this unit, but there's very little privacy and certainly no lawn.
