This live/work studio is among 48 funky condominium lofts created in the late 1990s in an old brick, ball-bearing factory near Roncesvalles Avenue.
The 690-square-foot loft features laminate floors and 14-foot metal ceilings with exposed steel supports.
There are six-foot windows and two skylights, one of which opens for ventilation.
The kitchen runs along one wall and includes a portable stainless-steel island that can be used as a dining table.
At the top of a floating stairway, there is a washer and dryer, four-piece bathroom and a closet. The space below the landing can be arranged as a dining or sleeping area. There also is a powder room on the main level.
Rear parking and a locker are included. A monthly fee of $152 covers water, building insurance and the maintenance of common elements. Pets are permitted.
The building has a meeting room with a kitchen. Within walking distance are High Park and Sorauren Park, public transit, and everything from eateries to ethnic shops.
