The sellers have knocked $200,000 off the price of a condo that, at $2.45-million, currently ranks as Ottawa’s most expensive high-rise home.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite is located on the 19th floor of 1035 Bank St., in the heart of the capital’s posh Glebe neighbourhood.
Its two balconies have unobstructed views of the TD Place field – site of last weekend’s Grey Cup game – and the adjacent Rideau Canal.Listing agent Marilyn Wilson of Dream Properties Inc. Brokerage in Ottawa said it was originally priced at $2.65-million. The price includes all furnishings.
The current owner bought the unit as an unfinished concrete shell and gave designer Chantelle Charette of the Ottawa-based firm Studio 853 carte blanche to design the space. More than $1-million was spent decorating and furnishing the unit, including $18,000 for custom marble and bronze flooring in the foyer and another $18,000 for a rich mahogany sliding door.“They’ll never be obstructed views, unlike Toronto where you’ll buy something and you’re not sure if another high-rise is going up next door,” Ms. Wilson said.
