The Place

A large, bright space with multiple common areas. Six walkouts take you to a wraparound balcony with views of the lake, the downtown skyline and the Cathedral Church of St. James in the park, where the building gets its name: Spire Lofts.

The History

Spire Lofts was built in 2007, and the sellers purchased five years ago. In that time, they’ve made a number of upgrades, including wood flooring throughout, UV filters for the floor-to-ceiling windows, and new appliances. With the kids grown up, they’re now downsizing.

This place is all about the views. Here’s the living room with its floor-to-ceiling windows:

Same room, different angle, with a view into the breakfast nook:

The dining room has a cool chandelier, and, yep, more views:

Here’s the kitchen, with all those new appliances:

Big Selling Point

This is a condo large enough for a family, with a space for every requirement. The master suite has a office beside it. On the other side, bedrooms two and three share a family room for play.

Possible Deal Breaker

The combination kitchen, dining room, living room and breakfast nook are all semi-partitioned. In an age of open-concept everything, it seems odd to section these common spaces off.
