Condo of the Week: $760,000 for a two-level loft in Moss Park with a spiral staircase and a trap door
The Place: A two-storey live/work space in the Evening Telegram Lofts. The unit has its own private rooftop terrace and two entrances and exits: one in the master bedroom on the ground floor, and another in the dining room on the upper level.
Bragging Rights: The only way to reach the mezzanine, which overlooks the dining room, is through a trap door in the upstairs bathroom. The hideaway (it has 6-foot-2 ceilings) is sure to be a hit with both kids, or adults who never outgrew their tree-fort phase.
Big Selling Point: The massive skylight on the top floor sits right above the spiral staircase, brightening up both levels of the unit.
Possible Deal Breaker: The master bedroom makes interesting use of open concept design: the en suite bathroom and the bedroom are currently one big room. The realtor suspects buyers will want to install a partition between the spaces.
