Condomonium: $1.2 million for a sunny unit in a former church in midtown
ADDRESS: 11 Woodlawn Avenue West, penthouse 6
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Yonge-St. Clair
AGENTS: Sue Mills and Sarah O’Neill, Royal LePage Signature Realty, Brokerage
THE PLACE: This is one of only two penthouses in midtown’s Woodlawn Church Lofts. The Matthews Group turned the structure into six suites back in 1990, making it one of the earliest examples of the church conversion craze.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The great room lives up to its moniker. With a cathedral ceiling that stretches two full storeys and a wall of windows, the space keeps the architectural idiosyncrasies of the church without any of the gothic gloom.
BIG SELLING POINT: The seven-piece master bathroom is humungous, with enough room for a double vanity, a makeup table, a shower and more. The sunny skylight over the whirlpool has us pining for an afternoon spent reading in the tub.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Open-concept living spaces are now de rigueur in new condos. Having a kitchen in a separate room might not appeal to buyers accustomed to chatting with their guests while prepping dinner.
