Neighbourhood Durand

Features Nestled near Durand Park and within walking distance of James Street, this condominium is one of two units in the downtown that are listed for more than $900,000.

Situated on Herkimer Street, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit boasts around 1,700 square feet of living space and makes you feel like you’re being “transported to another time,” said Randal Edwards, a salesperson with Royal LePage.

The condo is located in the Herkimer Apartments building, which was built in 1915 and designed by famed architect William Palmer Witton. The building was restored by Core Urban in 2010.

The building has several Edwardian features, including marble staircases, the portico entrance as well as original light fixtures and hardwood flooring throughout, said Joe Williams, who is the co-lister of the unit.

“You can feel the history and sense the soul of the building,” said Edwards.

The third-floor unit features an updated kitchen with granite countertops, travertine floors, stainless steel appliances and a large island with seating that opens up to the living room area.

The adjacent sunroom has porcelain floors, exposed brick, a chandelier and a built-in hutch. It is currently being used as a dining area.

Williams said a “notable” highlight of the unit is the primary suite, which features french doors, antique light fixtures as well as a sitting area with a gas fireplace surrounded by tile and built-in shelving.

The second bedroom has a walk-in closet and a Murphy bed. Both of the bathrooms have also been updated and the unit comes with a garage space, locker and ensuite laundry.

Residents also have access to a rooftop terrace with views of the nearby escarpment.

Edwards said the condo is “quite versatile,” noting that it could both suit empty nesters or a young professional couple.

Why is it priced this way? Williams said the price of the unit was swayed by both the size of and the upgrades to the unit as well as the “desirability of this unique building.”
