The place

A two-storey suite on the fourth floor of the High Park Lofts, near Roncesvalles. It’s within walking distance of the Revue Cinema, Sorauren Park and countless shops and restaurants.

The seven-storey building, completed in 2007, was, according to the developer, Toronto’s first building with geothermal heating. The atrium has an indoor garden with a sitting area. The owners of this unit—a couple with two teenagers—have been living here since 2013.

The door opens into a foyer on the upper level of the suite:
