The history

This unit is on the second floor of Camden Lofts, a six-storey warehouse that was converted into 59 industrial-style lofts in 1999. The landlord bought this suite in 2014. He was living here, but now he’s leaving the country for work. He’ll be away for at least a year.

Major Perk

The loft has an open floor plan, so the huge windows flood the entire place with natural light:

Possible deal breaker

The unit doesn’t have a balcony—or much of a view, despite the large windows. And, like many ex-industrial loft developments, the building doesn’t have a gym or a pool, or any of the other upscale amenities common in newer buildings. (It does have a party room, though.)
