347 Sorauren Avenue Toronto

Condo of the Week: 347 Sorauren Avenue

Before "soft lofts" or "new hard lofts" came barreling onto the market there was 347 Sorauren Avenue; the Sorauren Lofts. Before its closest neighbor, the Robert Watson lofts, were renovated and transformed to their newfound glory, there was 347 Sorauren Avenue.

Once a ball bearing factory, this is a hard loft at its finest with 15 foot ceilings and exposed beams, open concept kitchen, living room and dining room with walk out to a private terrace that also backs on to Sorauren park - which boasts an off-leash dog park and seasonal farmers' market. A raised bedroom allows for storage space underneath as well as a small mezzanine above the washroom. This is what loft-lovers dream about.

The price tag isn't too shabby either for how rarely these units come on the market. That however, could prove to be the problem if you fall in love with this place. It's likely to draw a large number of visitors and jack up the price with multiple bids.

GOOD FOR:

This place is ideal for a young professional who has always dreamed of having a loft and has been truly disappointed by the modern definition of such. The building is designated as live/work space which could also be a bonus for the right person. Not to mention Sorauren Avenue is on the eastern edge of Roncesvalles Village and places like The Revue Cinema, Aris Place and Gate 403 are just a walk away.

MOVE ON IF:

You plan to start growing your family in the near future. The area is great and very family oriented, but the space is open, long and narrow which may prove difficult to divide if you're thinking of adding a few kids to the mix.
