House of the week: 9A Casimir Street
This house at 9A Casimir doesn't look like much from the outside - really it's just a diminutive warehouse building - but walk through the door and you'll stumble upon a stunning example of modern design and adaptive reuse. The house maintains great warehouse features like exposed brick, high beamed ceilings, and industrial accents. But it's not all look - it's livable too, with modern kitchens and bathrooms, central air, and finished basement. Who says you have to pick fashion over function?
The second floor is made up of a large master suite including an en suite bathroom, walk in closets, and a fireplace. Floor to ceiling windows open up onto a large deck with great unobstructed views of downtown. A perfect private space away from the rest of the house. No pesky kids getting in the way of romantic evenings!

Just about any urbanite who can afford the $1.6 million price tag (or more - this one might have a bidding war). The open concept feel and deluxe master bedroom makes this house seem ideal for a wealthy bachelor or childless couple. But, on the other side of the coin, there's three bedrooms - plenty of room for a family. There's not a whole lot to criticize about this one, unless you're the type that craves a yard.
MOVE ON IF
Industrial chic doesn't do it for you. This house has a definite warehouse loft feel. Exposed brick and beamed ceilings offer a very specific aesthetic. If you're looking for something more conventional, this isn't the house for you. Your loss!
