Situated in a collection of the oldest heritage buildings in Toronto, these vintage warehouses date from 1860 - before Canada was even a country! Although now located far from the lakefront, at the time of their construction these buildings served as the warehouses at the foot of the lakeside shipping wharves. Occupied by wholesale grocers and commercial operations serving this British colonial outpost, these three architecturally resplendent Pre-Confederation character buildings reflect the Northern Italian Renaissance and Georgian Classical design elements that were popular in commercial architecture at the time. Converted by the Georgian Group in 2002, this intimate complex contains just 54 brick and beam lofts ranging from around 600 to almost 1300 square feet. Depending on the level and location within the complex, ceiling heights range from nine to sixteen feet with one and two level units. Featuring rustic brick walls, vintage wood beam columns and hardwood flooring, this character-rich complex is as charming inside as it is out.
This vintage loft is a stylish 2-level sun-filled open concept space. Thoughtfully designed, there's a 2-piece with laundry off the foyer, and a separate den or optional guest bedroom with sliding barn door. The exceptional open concept entertainment space features two walls of 150 year old red brick walls, vintage wood beams, classic sash windows and ceilings that vault 14 feet. Finished with hardwood floors throughout, the galley-style kitchen with upgraded appliances, granite counters and movable island make this the perfect space to gather friends round. Up the floating stairs, a substantial master mezzanine features skylights, ceiling heights of 10 feet, a 4-piece washroom and a walk-in closet. This is a dreamy setting for domestic bliss!
This fully-loaded vintage character loft in a Triple AAA location is ready for immediate occupancy at $2700 per month inclusive.
