Whether or not you believe the west end is the best end where Toronto neighbourhoods are concerned, there’s no denying: finding a hard loft for less than $600k in Roncesvalles is nothing to scoff at.
Boasting an open-concept floor plan, a private balcony, and wall-to-wall windows, the gem at 205 – 369 Sorauren Avenue is made for folks who love the city and want to embrace an urban lifestyle in the most Brooklyn-esque way possible.
Rough-and-tumble cement walls lead the eye all the way up to the 10-foot-high ceilings, while contemporary design flows consistently through the kitchen, living space, and bathroom; the modern fixtures and appliances offer an ideal juxtaposition against the hard skeleton of the unit, making the environment both cozy and cool.
Spanning between 600 and 700 square feet, the condo apartment couldn’t be called vast, but what’s lacking in surface area is made up for in airiness and spacious feelings. And, realistically, price. In fact, the $599,000 ask comes in below the approximate area-average for a spot this size ($640,930). The one-bedroom, one-bathroom joint is ideal for one person or a pair, while the unit itself seamlessly blends the living space with the kitchen area, making it an ideal meeting place for friends and loved ones to gather.
And for enjoying on sunny days (or these gorgeously brisk fall evenings), the private, east-facing balcony looks out over the back lot’s treescape, offering up a healthy dose of greenery in the heart of the city.
Located in what the listing describes as “one of the most coveted buildings in the west end,” the surrounding scene is also a dream. Steps away is Sorauren Park, where a year-round farmers’ market operates each Monday evening. And, around the corner, you’ll find Brockton Village in one direction while in the other, Roncesvalles Avenue takes you to the waterfront and Dundas West leads you north to The Junction.
