This is a fun loft in a really dynamic and exciting neighbourhood – a great home from which to explore!
This newer loft conversion is an ideal place from which to indulge in bustling Riverside / Leslieville!
The shopping and dining options are simply remarkable: morning coffee at the original Dark Horse – or the much cheekier F’Coffee – and dinner French-style at Le Rossignol. Or maybe just take it easy, and enjoy the oyster bar at Prohibition? No, wait, sushi! Oh heck, Tex Mex across the street, or old school heat at the Real Jerk… All of this within steps of your front door.
Beyond a foodie’s dream “home base”, this loft also provides abundant space for the serious cook who enjoys entertaining. The large, open concept space is ideal for large gatherings, either around the oversized kitchen or, in warmer months, on the rooftop terrace. Hand-scraped hardwood floors throughout, and abundant south-facing windows make this loft a bright space for daily living. The large bedroom is set away from the street, providing a completely quiet space. The bathroom is spa-like, with deep tub and separate rain shower. This loft is located in a very intimate boutique building that was converted only a few years ago. Discrete, cool and funky.
But did we mention the neighbourhood? You might want to try dinner at Table 17, or see what’s cooking at Ruby Watchco – Lynn Crawford’s menu changes every night so it’s almost like eating at home. Maybe just a quick glass of wine at Picnic, then a heart-stopping burger at the legendary Dangerous Dans. Oh, heck, kick it upscale and try a BQM burger. And it’s really not a problem if friends call Friday night and want to grab a glass… hum, The Avro? Or Asian pub night at the Comrade? Nah, it’s the night for vodka and electronic music at Rasputin.
Don’t worry – there’s more than just killer beats and best eats. Walk it all off on the weekends as you wander through the retro-antique shops, mid-century modern stores or original fashion stores that call this neighbourhood home. Grab household trinkets and groceries from the myriad of flavours along the strip. Oh, but make sure you start with breakfast at Bonjour Brioche… no wait 2 minutes further for Lady Marmalade!
