Condo of the Week: $600,000 to live in a former bread factory near Trinity Bellwoods Park

Address: 183 Dovercourt Road, Unit 212
Neighbourhood: Trinity-Bellwoods
Agents: Angela Balan, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $599,000

The Place: A two-bedroom hard loft on a quiet corner near Queen and Ossington.

Bragging Rights: Built as the Ideal Bread Company factory in 1919 and converted to the Argyle Lofts in 2007, this heritage building is full of charming details, like huge arched doorways where horse-drawn wagons once picked up loaves. This second-floor unit has 16-foot ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors and a custom light fixture over the current owner’s eight-seat dining table.

Possible Deal Breaker: The bakers didn’t anticipate the condo craze, so there was nowhere to put balconies. Trinity Bellwoods Park will have to suffice.
