Looking for a place to call home in Toronto that isn’t a boring brick house or sky-high condo? Well, this church may have just answered your prayers. It may look like any old place of worship from the outside, but on the inside, it’s far more heavenly than you’d imagine.
The St Leslieville Church Loft has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a den, and soaring 20 ft ceilings. The open-concept layout is spacious and bright thanks to the tall dome-shaped west-facing windows and the primary bedroom suite sits on its own level overlooking the outdoors.
“In comparison to other North American cities, one thing that makes Toronto real estate very unique is its abundance of hard lofts. When purchasing such a property, you really do feel like you own a piece of history,” said Strata realtor Milan Mitrovic to Curiocity.
If that’s not enough to convince you to tie the knot, the home even comes with parking and a locker. A dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, and other appliances are included as well.
The loft’s location is conveniently situated in the heart of the east end, close to all the boutiques and restaurants along Queen St East, parks and green space, and the Gerrard Square shopping centre.
There are just 14 St Leslieville Church Lofts in the building, each of them unique and thoughtfully-designed. Units in the building only become available once in a blue moon, so it likely won’t be on the market for much longer.
This loft is priced at $1,219,000 and the maintenance fees are quite low at $494 per month. The amenities include a BBQ, party room, rec room and underground parking.
