The place: The entire top floor of a 16-storey King West building, with views of the downtown skyline and the lake.
The history: The seller, architect and furniture-maker Tom Deacon, worked with fellow designer Andrew Jones to avoid some of the common imperfections of penthouses. For example, they convinced the developer to add a separate boiler that heats water for an under-floor heating system, preventing cold spots underfoot. The unit also has floor-to-ceiling windows, making the view as uninterrupted as possible, and the terrace entrance is outfitted with French doors, instead of the usual sliders.
Big selling point: The south-facing terrace (see above) is designed for revelry and relaxation, with a big pergola providing shade, a gas hookup and serene landscaping with river stones, ipe decking and planters. Plus, it’s at a height that offers the quintessential skyline view, but without excessive wind.
