The vibrant neighbourhood of Roncesvalles Village is a mix of old world and gentrification. Family-friendly and blessed with excellent transportation routes plus a varied commercial shopping district, this area also boasts parkland & recreational opportunities within walking distance.
Sorauren Park has tennis courts, a soccer field, & a baseball diamond and is located right next door. Nearby High Park & Grenadier Pond with 399 acres of parkland & recreational activities is just a few blocks away.
At the heart of this neighbourhood is Roncesvalles Avenue, an interesting mix of chic restaurants and gourmet stores rubbing elbows with ethnic delicatessens and family businesses.
Getting around is easy with so much public transit: The College and Dundas streetcars are only a two minute walk away and connect to subway stations on the Yonge line, while the 47A, B & C Lansdowne buses connect to the Bloor line at Lansdowne subway.
Vintage meets contemporary at the 48-unit Sorauren Lofts building, formerly a ball-bearing factory, now one of the few true loft conversions. Dramatically high 14.5' metal ceilings with open web steel joists and 6' windows are among the loft's unique characteristics. Zoned for both residential and light commercial use, the space would work well for creative individuals. The layout ensures maximum liveability, and there is the option to include absolutely everything in the suite, even the artwork, for optimal convenience.
The open concept main floor is well laid out, with a convenient entry closet and a two piece bath for guests and parties. The fluid space is flooded with light from two skylights set into the soaring ceiling above, one of which opens to admit fresh air. Professionally furnished and decorated to maximize living space, the living area features a couch which also serves as a double bed. A brand new Murphy bed can be put up to create more space for company.
Good for entertaining and parties, the kitchen has gleaming appliances and a large stainless steel counter centre island on castors (optional), which doubles as a dining table. Huge north facing windows yield a view of the courtyard at the new Robert Watson Loft building.
A floating staircase to the second level complements the cool urban plan. On the mezzanine level is a full modern bath with built-in shelves, and a laundry area with full-size machines. This area doubles as a dressing area with double closet area with funky silver chain curtains. The area also works well for parties – "smokers lounge" as the open skylight allows direct venting!
Other benefits of this fashionable pied-a-terre include: a rare private parking spot at the rear, full size locker, low maintenance fees, new laminate flooring throughout, five appliances, and a community/meeting room with kitchen in the building.
