LISTING AGENT Edwin Brdlik, Toronto Lofts Realty Corp.

The Action: It took just five showings to sell this one-bedroom-plus-den suite in the Studio One Lofts in Carleton Village.

What They Got: The 715-square-foot space was converted into a private residence in the mid-1990s, but since then, previous owners altered the floor plan to create more defined sleeping and entertaining quarters. For instance, frosted walls and built-in units offer separation between the den and bedroom from the principal room, which features 11-foot-ceilings, original post and beams and west-facing windows, as well as new laminate floors, stainless steel appliances and marble-topped counters and island.

Above the foyer and bathroom, there is a mezzanine and storage area accessible via a ladder.

A locker and parking are included with the unit, in addition to a monthly fee of $362 that goes towards common amenities, including laundry rooms on each level, a barbecue area and visitor parking.

The building is close to shops and restaurants in Corso Italia, as well as streetcar services.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s hard to find anything under $300,000 in terms of a real loft with parking,” says agent Edwin Brdlik. “It’s probably one of only two or three buildings where you can get that.”
