Thanks to a host of new developments, Toronto is home to some of the most expensive condos and penthouses in the country, including one that just sold in Rosedale's exclusive Hill and Dale Residences at Yonge and Roxborough.
In Toronto, living in a lavish penthouse where city views are abundant is a sign of wealth and power and raises the question of 'who lives in there?' when people pass the building. Such is the case for this spacious 2-storey penthouse, housed in a 5-storey building that's home to just 14 residences.
After spending 44 days on the market, the lavish 4,000-sq.ft penthouse sold for $11.6 million ($1.2 million under the initial $12.8 million asking price), trailing ever so slightly behind a 6,000-sq.ft penthouse that once sold for $12 million in Toronto.
Though it may just be the most expensive price per square foot price ever sold for a Toronto condo, at $2,900 for every 12 inches squared.
Spread across two floors at 1 Roxborough Street East, the beautiful penthouse -- designed by internationally acclaimed Toronto-based firm Chapi Chapo Design -- garners attention for its "rare size, location, and design."
Ph 2 - 1 Roxborough Street East
With ceilings that reach 12-feet and full walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, the sky and city views are abundant, while making you feel as if you're living amongst the trees.
Thanks to three private terraces, including an incomparable rooftop, you can enjoy uninterrupted east and west-facing views, all throughout the home.
The fully-customized penthouse has 3+1 bedrooms and 4-baths, spread across the sprawling floor plan, which includes all your principle rooms on the main floor and then a spacious family room on the floor above.
On the main floor, the living room blends seamlessly into the kitchen and dining area. The living room, complete with a fireplace and coffered ceiling, walks out to one of the decks. While the kitchen has built-in appliances, a large marble breakfast bar, and built-in shelves.
