ADDRESS: , penthouse 6 11 Woodlawn Avenue West
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Yonge-St. Clair
AGENTS: , Royal LePage Signature Realty, Brokerage Sue Mills and Sarah O’Neill
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.

At $0.77/sq. ft. the maintenance fee is going to deter a lot of people from buying this place.
If not for the exterior shot – would anyone have guessed this condo was a former church? Conventional spatial lay-out and finishes vulgarize a remarkable space with great potential. i’ll defer to my post on a previous church ‘conversion’:
Beautifully done but the maintenance fees are the deal breaker.
nice enough looking unit but I get this weird feeling of entering a car wash when I come in the front entry.
Not sure why they call it a cathedral ceiling when its only a church.
What kind of church was it ? LOL.. I actually love it, will take a drive by tomorrow. But the master bedroom could be 2 bedrooms, way too much space and that 2nd bedroom off the kitchen is weird.. I love it otherwise..BUT that maint fee is a killer! madness! Wonder if they have valet parking, concierge, pool and with that shared entrance, how on earth can it be that high?!!
Anyone recognize the large abstract canvas piece in the main space? Would love to know the artist/where it’s from.
Most of it is unremarkable–bland and boring! (the kitchen is really unimaginative and looks cheap). I think they could have done much much better with that space…
Maintenance fees should be regulated. I have a friend who lives in one of the best condos in Yorkville and pays less than that in maintenance fees, has 24 hour concierge and security, valet, a two-story fitness room that would blow you away, pool, private guest suites, terraces, recreation rooms, guest parking, etc.
What a wonderfully unique suite! Love the terrace and the views. Where else can you find a 2-storey great room like that at the heart of Yonge/St Clair?
