In the trendy King West Village close to downtown attractions and fashionable shops and restaurants on King and Queen, the Tecumseth Lofts is a magnet for young professionals, singles and couples looking for a cool, urban space.
This two-bedroom condominium loft fits the bill with about 1,000 square feet of living space. It has a two-storey floor plan and an open-concept main floor with high ceilings and exposed ductwork.
"It's much bigger than a lot of the new lofts that are being built," agent Julie Kinnear says. "You could easily fit in a dining room set, living room and big kitchen. It's great for entertaining with a good-sized balcony on the north side of the building, which is the quiet side."
The main floor has hardwood floors, a powder room, and kitchen with maple cabinetry and a centre island. There is a bathroom and laundry area upstairs along with the bedrooms cushioned with broadloom. The master bedroom has a Juliet balcony and large sliding glass doors.
The unit comes with storage closets, parking and a monthly maintenance fee of about $348 for water, building insurance and common elements.
With only 28 units, the intimate building doesn't have recreational amenities, but nearby Stanley Park boasts a baseball diamond, tennis courts, outdoor pool, soccer field and a community centre. It is close to bus and streetcar service, and a short drive from the Gardiner Expressway.
