With sweeping views across the city, elegantly updated period details, and a small entertaining pentroom, the second-floor condo at 145 Buena Vista Avenue ticks quite a few boxes. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home takes up the top floor of a well-kept white Victorian built around the turn of the 20th century. Light floods in through three skylights, and the main space unfolds nicely, although it is most definitely not open plan. The condo just came on the market asking $2.75 million.
The condo's period details are its most compelling feature. Pillars support box-beam ceilings, and stained-glass windows provide a touch of color to the white-paneled walls. A grand floor-to-ceiling carved fireplace in the master bedroom has been kept intact, although it's painted a trendy shade of gray. The more modern features, like the kitchens and bathrooms, fit in well. The entertaining pentroom and roof deck area also feel modern, with a bar and refrigerator in the small indoor space to serve outdoor get-togethers.
