Listing agent: Deirdre Slowey, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

In 2011, this former church and attached schoolhouse were retrofitted with 34 residences.

The action: The general public seldom have an opportunity to venture inside Victoria Lofts, so this two-bedroom unit was a curious attraction for more than 100 visitors lined up for showings and open houses. A dozen buyers who wanted to stay permanently presented offers by late May.

“I’ve been working in the Village for 13 years and I rarely get into the building to see things,” agent Deirdre Slowey said.

“Another unit happened to be on the market the same day, but it was about 1,200 square [feet] … so a different person would be looking at theirs, but the two lofts together generated a lot of traffic.”

What they got: In 2011, a former church and attached schoolhouse were retrofitted with 34 residences. This more-than-800-square-foot loft was designed with bedrooms on opposite sides of open living, dining and cooking quarters with 11½-foot ceilings, warehouse windows, hardwood floors and stainless-steel appliances.

Two bathrooms and laundry facilities complete the interior. The unit also comes with a storage locker and parking. Monthly fees of $576 pay for water and party-room maintenance.

The agent’s take: “This unit was in the old schoolhouse, so it didn’t have all the church features, like stained-glass windows, so I didn’t know how it would be received,” Ms. Slowey said.

“One woman said this was the gym … and someone else said they remembered doing yoga in that spot.”

However, the unit’s private outdoor space was a bonus. “It has a little balcony looking out the front,” Ms. Slowey said. “When you’re sitting there, it’s like you’re sitting on the front porch of a house; it didn’t feel like a condo.”
