Hello hard loft seekers! This is THE spot in the middle of an amazing neighbourhood. This stunning, character-filled 2 bedroom, 2 bath multi-level converted space is a loft lover’s ultimate dream. Enjoy daily life in a spacious multi-level layout with gorgeous 12’ ceilings, exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, a central stone fireplace, renovated kitchen and oversized windows with generous amounts of natural light perfect for your morning coffee, entertaining or even working from home. Step out and enjoy your own private terrace oasis on a calm, leafy street with nature sounds, a popular cycle route and a view of the CN Tower right outside your door.
Located within the Industrial Revolution Lofts, these character-filled boutique spaces were originally part of a knitting mill. Converted by developer and architect Bob Mitchell in 1996, it was of importance to preserve as many of the original textures and materials as possible, including the red brick facade. Exposed ductwork, generously sized windows and steel beams paired with the high ceilings provide a sense of comfort within the wide open spaces. Following the success of the initial conversion, a second addition to the building was added. Bob Mitchell is an important figure in the Toronto loft industry, having designed and completed the first legal conversion in the city in 1982. He and his firm have led the conversions and retrofitting of many loft conversions in the city over the past 30+ years.
