Enjoy unique custom refinements and flexible open plan living in this stunning former warehouse conversion, loft-style home.

Please Note:
This is from a 2011 photo shoot and there have been some modifications and changes to the unit.
The main living space or 'grand room' features a diamond pattern scored concrete floor finished with an acid etching stain.
The kitchen is open to the main living area, making the 'grand room' a truly inclusive entertainment space.
Looking from the open kitchen and dining/entertaining area towards the main living space with its cathedral ceilings and dramatic glass curtain wall.
A sliding glass door opens from the main living room onto a large, private outdoor deck, the ideal outdoor retreat for BBQs.
The private balcony/deck has stairs leading up from a deeded garden area and carport/garage below.
The glass curtain wall rises nearly 19 feet up to the apex of the 'grand room', flooding the main living space with brilliant morning light.
The focal point of the main living space is the combined open kitchen and dining/entertaining area within the 'grand room'.
Detail of a hand-carved decorative wooden accent panel that forms the trim around the open archway, separating the dining/entertaining area from the rest of the main living space.
The galley-style kitchen design features plenty of upper- and lower-cabinetry and a full complement of stainless steel appliances.
In addition to the stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher, the kitchen also includes a chef-style gas oven/range with recirculating extractor hood.
Details are reflected in the smooth polished surface of the raised granite bar set-in to the reclaimed hardwood parquetry of the kitchen counter.
The combined kitchen and dining/entertaining area is defined by ornate, hand-carved wainscoting and other decorative accent trimming.
Juxtaposed against the ornate decorative wooden paneling of the handcrafted wainscoting is the industrial minimalism of the steel trusses supporting an open mezzanine level.
The open mezzanine level has been finished with bamboo flooring and features an operable window and a ceiling fan.
Open to the main living space below, the mezzanine serves as an ideal home office or private study.
Alternatively, the open mezzanine can serve as a 3rd sleeping area for visiting friends and guests.
Robust steel tubing and hardwood treads lend industrial chic to the spiral staircase design.
Heating and central air conditioning is delivered via a forced hot air HVAC system, with additional ventilation provided by ceiling fans.
A hallway leads off from the main living space to the rest of the loft's amenities, e.g., bedrooms + bathrooms.
Another shorter utility corridor leads past the laundry hook-up featuring a full-size stack washer/dryer unit.
At the end of the utility corridor is the loft's 2nd/guest full bathroom complete with tile flooring and a recessed shower stall.
The 2nd/guest full bathroom design is complete with a floating washbasin/sink, glass shelving and a wall mirror with bright task-lighting.
The access hallway to the unit's bedrooms and main bathroom is finished in reclaimed hardwood parquetry flooring.
The main bedroom suite is a generously sized (18.9' x 16.6') room with big bright windows and finished with green stained hardwood flooring.
The main bedroom suite also features recessed lighting, open shelving units and two built-in storage closets.
Adjacent to the main bedroom is a full bathroom suite complete with granite floor tiling and ornate tile-work surrounding a Jacuzzi/Whirlpool tub.
The main full bathroom suite also features a separate shower stall with granite tile stall surround, a glass barrier wall and a multi-head, steam shower unit.
Detail of the multi-head steam shower and massage unit with separate rainmaker shower head and hand-held.
Also included in the design of the main full bathroom suite is the built-in, open shelving unit for linen storage and towels.
Across the hallway from the main bathroom suite is the entrance to the 2nd/guest bedroom or private home office.
The 2nd/guest bedroom features a bright window, wall-to-wall carpeting and a built-in storage closet.
The view down the access hallway back toward the main living space and upper level mezzanine of the 'grand room'.
Careful attention has been given to installing a combination of decorative line voltage and recessed lighting systems throughout the space.
An open stairwell leads from the main living space down to the ground level garage and semi-finished basement.
The drive-in, deeded garage space is large enough to accommodate 2 or 3 cars (depending on size).
The drive-in, deeded garage is accessed via remote controlled roller door and, features a slop-sink and additional amenities, e.g., exercise room + workshop.
The exercise room has been built into the semi-finished basement level and features carpeting and wall-mounted heating units.
At 16.7' x 11.7' in size, the exercise room also includes track-lighting strips and 2 wall-mounted TV monitors.
Adjacent to the exercise room are double wooden doors that open to reveal a huge workshop with a half-bathroom and access to the building's mechanical room.
The workshop features a half-bathroom on a raised platform, concrete slab flooring, auxiliary heating, a window and overhead fluorescent lighting.
At 22.5' x 36.5 the workshop is a great semi-finished basement space for home handyman projects and/or super storage space.
The rear of the 143 Jaques Street loft #2 shows the private deck, which serves as a carport, the garage entrance and the deeded garden area/yard.
The sloping asphalt driveway provides access from the street level down to the unit #2 entrance of 143 Jaques Street.
