Condo of the Week: $879,000 for a ground-floor church loft in Roncesvalles
The Place: A one-bedroom unit with a private deck on the first floor of the Abbey Lofts in Roncesvalles.
Bragging Rights: Inventiveness. We’ve featured a number of units in this church-to-condo conversion and have yet to see the same layout twice.
Big Selling Point: The building’s limestone-clad exterior walls make the outdoor deck feel like it belongs to a French chateau.
Possible Deal Breaker: Regular deal-clinchers like brick walls and original stained glass windows, suddenly seem less brag-worthy when neighbouring units boast vaulted ceilings and bell towers.
By the Numbers:
• 1,650 square feet
• $785.55 in monthly maintenance fees
• 2 bathrooms
• 1 bedroom
• 1 private deck
• 1 parking space
• 1 bicycle lock-up space
