7 Millington Street Toronto

House of the week: 7 Millington Street

7 Millington Street is an unassuming modern loft near Parliament and Carlton Street listed for $1,399,000. The Millington Lofts, once a livery stable (circa 1885), was later converted into lofts in the late '80s, and upgraded over time. There are only two units in the building, with the others previously listed for $1,100,000.

This two-storey unit is not your traditional industrial-looking brick and beam space. The 2,000 square foot loft is downright sexy with a dark wood kitchen, an interior courtyard, and a cozy fireplace in the living room. There's a glass staircase and a second floor bridge leading to a master retreat and outdoor patio. And there's still plenty of natural light with the cut-outs and large skylight.

There are only a handful of lofts in the Cabbagetown neighbourhood, including the Peanut Factory Lofts, a processing plant conversion on Sackville Street and the former home of a certain disgraced CBC host, who has since moved to the Beaches (or his mom's place).

Today, Cabbagetown is just a quiet neighbourhood amongst classic cottages with the best manicured front lawns in the city. Worth the asking price? Take a closer look.

GOOD FOR

A large condo alternative without the maintenance fees. The unit is a freehold loft which means no monthly fees or regulations, and you're free to maintain the property as you like. The space is still larger than most row houses in the area.

MOVE ON IF

You need long-term parking and more than two bedrooms. The seller has a two year transferable rental on single car parking included in the purchase but beyond that, you'll need to secure a spot and pay up.
