House of the week: 176 Bedford Road

Once a former film studio, the property on Bedford Road was converted into a loft/art space and residence. Asking $4,998,000, it's a unique dwelling, to say the least, looking more like a museum than a traditional two-bedroom near Davenport and Avenue Road.

The home was designed by the late architect Gordon Ridgely along with the artist homeowner Rose Lindzon, to showcase her extensive collection. The massive space with its open layout and 20-foot ceilings is undeniably striking, dramatic and echoey.

The loft is geared towards a special buyer, given the home has been on-and-off the market for awhile, and originally listed for almost $6 million. The place has an industrial style with concrete floors, exposed brick, and an indoor water fountain. The stainless steel kitchen and elevator is an artistic masterpeice, along with the master bedroom and mirrored ensuite.

With a little imagination (and more cash), the space can be converted into a traditional single family dwelling. In the meantime, it's the ideal pad to host one hell of a party.

GOOD FOR

Entertaining. As a former film studio, the house is completely sound proof for hosting obnoxiously loud get togethers with a hundred of your closest friends. For redecorating ideas, check out several of the high-end design stores in the area.

MOVE ON IF

The industrial look is not your style. There are plenty of Victorians and semis in the neighbourhood but perhaps we'll see another price drop in its future.
