A Sky High Penthouse Perch Near Queen & University

offered at $895,000

The quality of your life has much to do with your perspective, or your point of view. In the case of this real estate offering, this holds true – literally. Think of the reflective opportunities (not to mention the unparalleled vistas) that are offered living on top of the world in a T-dot penthouse.  Imagine beginning your day, in front of floor-to-ceiling windows with coffee in hand, or unwinding with friends after work in your well-appointed, swish entertainment space, taking in the skyline while sipping on drinks.  There is a certain energy and joie de vivre when the world is at your doorstep.  Can you imagine what happens when it’s right outside your window?
