R.E. Taxes: $2,010/FYR2006 with residential exemption.
Converted in 2001 and subsequently renovated, this loft defines a new standard in open plan living.
Located on the 5th floor, this unit is one of 41 in a medium-sized, elevator building with high owner-occupancy.
The open floor plan easily accommodates multiple living areas for dining, reading, watching TV or just simply relaxing.
Banded by 6 windows and a bright south-easterly exposure, the loft is bathed with natural light.
All 6 windows feature deep-cut, double-hung frames with energy efficient glass.
The original concrete flooring has been polished and sealed throughout the loft.
Clean lines and the interior finish accentuate the contemporary feel of the space.
Original warehouse details include flared concrete columns, recalling this building's industrial past.
A modern, linear kitchen is open to the main living space.
The kitchen is complete with a full complement of stainless steel appliances, including: refrigerator, gas range/oven, microwave, dishwasher + disposal.
The kitchen also features plenty of cabinetry and overhead task lighting.
Whether its cocktail hour or breakfast the next morning the open kitchen is a natural focal point when entertaining at home.
The unit is wired for satellite/cable TV, high-speed internet access and an intercom station connected to the lobby entry.
The design of the main space forms a natural sleeping alcove adjacent to a twin-door storage closet.

Curtains strung along steel guide wire can be closed for privacy.
French doors adjacent to the open sleeping area open to a private den and/or 2nd bedroom.

Please note:

Hubert - the dog - despite this semblance of permanence, is excluded from the sale of this unit.
