Condomonium: $1.2 million for an industrial-chic loft across the street from Trinity Bellwoods Park
ADDRESS: 993 Queen Street West, Unit 301
AGENT: Philip Beecher, Right at Home Realty
THE PLACE: A southwest-facing two-bedroom suite in the Candy Factory Lofts, just across the street from Trinity Bellwoods Park. The building’s conversion into condos in 1999 jumpstarted the city’s mania for hard lofts and any property described as “authentic.”
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Units throughout the century-old building contain the original brick and beams, but this condo is one of only a handful that has the original metal elevator doors as well. Loft cred!
BIG SELLING POINT: This is open-concept done properly. A few pillars and well-placed walls divide the space into logical areas for living, dining and sleeping without compromising the sight lines or blocking the huge arched windows.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The cool factor in this condo is high, and you’d better have the furniture to match. Boring dining room sets or your parents’ mismatched cast-offs aren’t going to cut it.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• 1,850 square feet
• $736.57 in monthly maintenance fees
• 13-foot high ceilings
• 8 arched windows
• 2 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
