Condomonium: $1 million for the coolest converted-church condo we’ve seen yet

Condomonium: $1 million for the coolest converted-church condo we’ve seen yet
Every condo needs its own steeple.

ADDRESS: 384 Sunnyside Avenue, Unit 309

NEIGHBOURHOOD: High Park–Swansea

AGENT: Michael Griffiths, Royal LePage

PRICE: $1,099,900

THE PLACE: Built in 1910, the limestone-clad church was converted into the Abbey Lofts in 2007. This three-level condo includes a lookout in the former bell tower and is known as, yes, the Bell Tower unit (bell not included).

BRAGGING RIGHTS: While many church converts have atriums and living spaces that boast high ceilings, they often fall short in the bedroom. Here, however, the master bedroom maintains the castle-like feeling with ceilings that reach 17 feet.

BIG SELLING POINT: Originality. Aside from twisting staircases and rooms that are anything but square, there’s also a window-walled sunroom with built-in benches on the condo’s highest floor.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The exposed rafters and stained glass give the space a Gothic vibe that might feel foreboding in the evenings. Kind of like Jane Eyre, only with granite counters.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $1,099,900 • 2,200 square feet • $701.12 a month in maintenance fees • 3 levels • 2 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms • 2 balconies • 2 fireplaces • 2 parking spaces • 1 former bell tower
