Rental of the Week: $5,000 per month to live in a spacious converted loft on Queen Street East
A large, modern second-storey flat in a Victorian building. The spacious layout leaves plenty of room for entertaining.
The 150-year-old building was converted into three lofts in 1999. The owner, who bought this unit in 2009, put in new insulation and redid the walk-in closet and master ensuite. He travels a lot and wants to rent out the property while he’s away.
The living room’s windows face Queen Street:
The owner has carved a little office space out of the living area:
Here’s the dining area, with some skylights:
And here’s the kitchen:
The family room is next to the kitchen:
Here’s the bedroom:
The bedroom’s walk-in closet has a washer and dryer:
And here’s the ensuite bathroom:
There’s a small balcony at the rear:
The elevator opens directly into the unit, so the tenant won’t have to worry about any hallway-related hassles.
Possible deal breaker
Although the loft is large, there’s only one bedroom, so any family larger than two people will have trouble sharing the place.
