CO-OP AGENT Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Advantage Realty
The Action: Many townhouses and single-family residences in Leslieville did not have the modern loft style that appealed to clients of agents Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, who eventually showed them this second-floor suite in the Printing Factory Lofts as an ideal alternative.
What They Got: Printing presses were once housed in the century-old building, which is now home to this 1,568-square-foot loft with two bedrooms, a den and an open entertaining area and kitchen with exposed ductwork, large windows and a 68-square-foot balcony.
Visually pleasing and practical features range from laminate floors, granite kitchen countertops and stainless steel appliances to a walk-in closet in one bedroom, three four-piece bathrooms, including two ensuites, and stacked laundry machines.
A locker and underground parking come with the unit.
A monthly fee of $570 pays for concierge and party room maintenance, among other things.
Attractions nearby include shops, restaurants and streetcars on Queen Street, as well as a park and a school.
The Agent's Take: "It was quite big and had a very nice terrace," Ms. Kaushansky says. "It also had two proper bedrooms with doors."Report Typo/Error
