Bright Cozy Industrial Loft With Great Live/Work Space [SOLD]
Robert Watson Lofts is a heritage landmark building with generous frontage at the north end of Sorauren Ave. The building sits on a tree-lined street dotted with new and century old lofts and historic homes. The industrial conversion of the original building at 363 Sorauren Ave is a great example of adaptive re-use of early 20th century architecture, where old use was given a new life. Since its conversion from a Confectionery Factory into residences in 2008, the Robert Watson Lofts have been a popular building amongst creative professionals and design fanatics looking for authentic loft living with an edge. As time progresses, it takes on an organic form that makes its architecture more beautiful and endearing over time. The original restored details wrapped in the vintage brick patina showcasing an old industrial smokestack adds another layer of flavour to classic loft living.
This cozy well-laid out one-bedroom in the circa 1903 heritage structure boasts lovingly restored industrial touches from the former candy factory. This is one of the 153 units in the building complex.
This industrial modern home comes with sanded and sealed concrete floors, large window with heaps of natural light, 13ft ceilings with exposed timber beams and exposed brick wall. Amenities include a garden terrace on the same level equipped with bbq, gym with sophisticated workout equipment, plenty of visitors parking, and a beautifully landscaped common courtyard bridging the restored building with the new addition behind the main heritage structure.
The building complex at 363-369 Sorauren Ave is also convenient to Sorauren Park [with tennis courts, leash free dog area, outdoor rink, weekly farmers market all year], steps to subway, Bloor GO station, UP Express to Pearson Airport, highway, bike trails and High Park. Not to mention residents can reap the benefits of the notable shops and restaurants in Roncesvalles Village, as well as own a little piece of Toronto architectural history.
If you are considering a taste of industrial loft life in a unique building, this unit comes with a lot of interesting extras. The generous foyer accommodates 3 bikes comfortably from the ceiling mounted bike racks. The wide gallery style hallway is perfect for showcasing large pieces of artwork or floor to ceiling bookcase for your home library.
The versatile open concept living space has enough room to eat, work and play. The multi-purpose space fits a desk and full size sofa. At the other end a kitchen area equipped with 4 full size appliances large enough to fit a breakfast island. Can’t figure out where to mount your TV? No problem! The 76” retractable projection screen will transform the entire living space into a theatre experience.
If you are ready to live in a real industrial building with charm rather than a loft replica in new construction, get in touch with me for a private showing. I would love to show you Robert Watson Lofts.
