Condomonium: $1.5 million for a two-level penthouse in a former Annex Catholic school
ADDRESS: 391 Brunswick Ave., Penthouse 2
AGENT: Sarah Jane Temple, TFN Realty
THE PLACE: A 2-bedroom penthouse in the schoolhouse, a five-storey condo development in what used to be the Catholic school Loretto College. In keeping with the building’s academic roots, suite models have been named after storied universities, and this unit’s known as “the Stanford.”
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Living in a converted church is rare; living in a converted school is even rarer (and you won’t have to feel guilty about swearing).
BIG SELLING POINT: Oodles of patio space. The 580-square-foot rooftop terrace provides more room for barbequing than most Annex backyards.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: We’re suckers for hard lofts and converted condos, especially when developers incorporate nifty details like stained glass and freight elevators into the revamps. Though the exterior is eye-catching, there aren’t any features inside that flaunt the building’s past life.
