Condo of the Week: $1.5 million for a four-level unit in a 100-year-old church

More churches-turned-condos

Address: 40 Westmoreland Avenue, Unit 7
Neighbourhood: Wallace-Emerson
Agent: Sharon Lane, Chestnut Park Real Estate
Price: $1,495,000

The place: A two-bedroom, three-bathroom, four-level condo hidden within a 1914 neo-Gothic church, just steps from Bloor and Dovercourt.

The history: This condo is one of the 17 in the building—a new development by Dog Day Developers, with Asen Vitko as architect. Features from the original church have been preserved in the unit, including exposed brick walls and archways, wood beams and dramatic arched windows.

Big selling point: The second-floor catwalk between the master bedroom and the bathroom makes for a pleasingly modern contrast with the antique surroundings. And the fourth-floor bathroom, with its striking wooden walls and oversized rain-head shower, seems like a romantic place to wash away the day.

Possible deal breaker: Ghost Hunters fans may want to seek out a property with a less spiritual background.

By the numbers:

• $1,495,000
• 1,795 square feet
• $500 in monthly maintenance fees
• 4 levels
• 3 bathrooms
• 2 bedrooms
• 1 garage parking space (with direct access to the unit)
• 1 catwalk

The dining room has a fireplace.

The living room is next to the dining room (the stairs lead to the mudroom). That glass thing above is the underside of the catwalk.

The kitchen has quartz countertops.

Up on the second floor, it’s obvious how rare the woodwork in this place is.

Off the catwalk, there’s a little alcove just big enough for an iMac and a chair.

In the master bedroom’s en suite bathroom, someone (a saint?) watches you bathe.

Here’s the master bedroom.

On the third floor, the second bedroom has more of that intricate woodwork.

The fourth-floor bathroom has a bathtub nestled into its window.

The lower-level mudroom has built-in closets and hooks for coats.
