Condo of the week: 40 Westmoreland Avenue
Another mind-blowing church-turned-loft at 40 Westmoreland Avenue proves that it's still a buyer's market even during the holiday season. The West40 Lofts near Bloor and Ossington was a labour of love by Architect Asen Vitko (and also his principal residence), as he transformed the nineteenth century Neo Gothic church into a modern 17 unit multi-storey development.
If you love church conversions, it's a must-see heritage building, boasting remarkable interior details like cathedral ceilings, classic stone columns and stained glass windows. Townhouse number 7 includes all the heavenly sent bells and whistles you'd expect to find in a funky Bloorcourt dwelling.
The entire space is approximately 1,800 square feet, spread over three levels, and it's surprisingly more modern than it appears. The high-end finishes and glass walls give it a contemporary style while not overshadowing the classic character and history of the building.
Bourgeois goths. It's a great space for entertaining and the neighbourhood is vibrant, chock full of retail and coffee shops. Ossington station is around the corner, and it's very walkable to other local hot spots.
MOVE ON IF
You need more outdoor space. There's no balcony or backyard in this place. Plus, you might lose some sleep if living inside a century-old church creeps you out.
