Three exposures, providing tremendous natural light throughout the day. A century building, carefully re-imagined and meticulously maintained. A boutique loft, of the perfect scale, recently renovated with taste and style. A rooftop terrace providing privacy and unparalleled entertaining space.
Each of these features, taken alone, is distinctive. Taken together, they combine to create a miraculous loft of rare scale, style and scope, located in an exciting and dynamic neighbourhood. This home is virtually irreplaceable in the city, and a remarkable place to call home.
Welcome to 1 Columbus Avenue, Penthouse 401.
This century loft conversion building contains just 10 suites, each with a distinct character and feel. Penthouse 401 has the unique benefit of extensive and stylish renovations, and a sprawling rooftop terrace with expansive views.
The primary living space presents almost 30 feet of oversized windows, introducing tremendous south light into the recently-renovated space. 10 foot timber ceilings are paired with premium floor tiles, repointed brick work, a stunning linear gas fireplace accented in hot rolled steel and an impressive wine cellar with room for 285 bottles. Adjacent is the home’s large dining room, perfectly positioned for both quiet dinners and more formal entertaining.
The kitchen is a home cook’s dream, with Wolf gas range, Sub-Zero fridge, additional wine storage and Miele dishwasher – also featuring a large eat-at counter and pantry space. With a bank of east-facing windows, this kitchen is bright and sunny morning to afternoon.
The circular floorplan then presents a flexible office / den area, that is further complimented by built-in closets and the home’s carefully concealed laundry room. Adaptable to multiple uses, it’s ideal as a home office.
Adjacent to the den is the primary bedroom, a quiet and comfortable space boasting a walk in closet and an ensuite 5 piece bathroom with dual vanities and a large soaker tub.
The home’s second bedroom and main bath are positioned next to the entry foyer, providing separation and privacy between the bedrooms.
Upstairs is the home’s private rooftop terrace, providing over 1200 square feet of outdoor space that is beyond compare. An outdoor kitchen is perfect for large gatherings and the sweeping views towards the city and overtop Roncesvalles provide a unique vantage point to enjoy the day or night. Two firepits take the chill off while the expansive pergola fends against the afternoon sun.
1 Columbus is remarkable and rare, making it ideal for anyone seeking tremendous character space in a vibrant neighbourhoo in Toronto’s West End.
