Condo of the Week: 65 Sheldrake
With all of the new church conversions popping up around Toronto, you'd think cathedral living was a new city fad. Not so. The St. George in midtown was, indeed, ahead of the curve, turning the Eglinton United Church into 33 shiny loft homes. And now, you can have one of them (for the cost of a semi-detached anywhere else). Rejoice in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom, three-storey condo.

Those who like a little visual interest for their $700,000. Good for barbecue-lovers, sunlight-fiends, and those who want a little space between the bedrooms (master is on main floor, second bedroom is on third). Well-suited to individuals who find hilarious irony in doing naughty things in a church.
MOVE ON IF:
You think churches are for praying, or you want a yard. You believe "integrated appliances" are the new "stainless steel," and thus this design is blasphemous.
