The big sell: This two-bedroom condo was on the market for 10 days before being snapped up by buyers attracted by the substantial upgrades. Some $60,000 had been spent on renovations to create a striking home that now has custom stonework on the breakfast bar, a deluxe main bathroom featuring a black slate shower with a five-way aqua brass temperature-controlled diverter, water jets and a rain shower, and a bespoke kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and switchplates. As well, there is wiring for surround sound, laminate flooring in the principal rooms, a master ensuite with granite countertops, a new sink, slate floors and shower trim, designer paint colours, recessed lighting, soundproofed walls between the master bedroom and living room, custom door trim and six-inch baseboards, and new carpet, light fixtures, blinds, and a patio door roller screen. Adding to the appeal is a 450-square-foot raised patio with a garden area that overlooks the complex’s courtyard.
