Condo of the Week: $1.3 million for a Greenwood-Coxwell loft in a former bakery

Address: 2 Minto Street, Unit 2B
Neighbourhood: Greenwood-Coxwell
Agent: Ken McDonald, Re/Max Hallmark Realty Ltd., Brokerage
Price: $1,275,000

The place: Nearly the entire first floor of a converted Estonian bakery.

The history: The sellers, a couple of music industry vets, bought this 1953 building a little over a decade ago and brought it back to life as six condo units. They saved this unit, the biggest and best one, for themselves, carving out a pair of offices so they could both work from home, along with four bedrooms for their growing family.

Big selling point: The owners love being able to step outside their door to take their three rescue dogs on walks without getting in an elevator.

Possible deal breaker: There’s no backyard. There is, however, a private rooftop deck, and the dead-end street is ideal for shooting hoops or playing road hockey—potentially an important consideration for anyone with a big enough family to justify a four-bedroom purchase.

By the numbers:

• $1,275,000
• 2,225 square feet
• $800 in monthly maintenance fees
• 230-square-foot roof deck
• 140-square-foot terrace
• 10-foot ceilings
• 4 bedrooms
• 2 bathrooms
• 2 home offices/dens
• 1 parking space in the garage
• 1 parking space outside
• 1 garage door in the dining room

The building was a bakery before the sellers carved it into six condos. This unit, the largest, is theirs.

The floor plan is a little like an office: living areas in the middle, and private rooms arranged around the perimeter.

The kitchen and dining area are combined.

The counter is reclaimed wood.

The owners used some translucent plastic material to cordon off this den.

Next to the den is an office space.

There are four bedrooms. Here’s one.

And another.

And another.

The master bedroom is a little larger, and it has double closets.

The master bedroom’s en suite bathroom.

The unit comes with a private rooftop deck.

And plenty of scooter parking.

It’s at ground level, so taking the dog for a walk is never a problem.
