Condo of the Week: $1.2 million to live in Robertson Davies’ old pad in Summerhill


Address: 40 Oakland Avenue, Unit 303
Neighbourhood: Summerhill
Agent: Kara Reed, Chestnut Park Real Estate Ltd.
Price: $1,225,000

The Place: A three-bedroom home spread across two floors of a feted modernist building.

The History: Macy DuBois, who also earned accolades for his work on the New College at U of T, won the 1983 Governor General’s Medal in Architecture for this condo building. The original owner of unit 303 was writer Robertson Davies, who lived there throughout the 1980s while completing his Cornish Trilogy, including the Booker Prize–nominated What’s Bred in the Bone. The current owner is a designer, who ripped out Davies’ original green linoleum to expose the concrete floors below.

Big Selling Point: Both levels have expansive terraces surrounded by evergreens, making them ideal places for engaging in deep thought.
