16 Croft Street

House of the week: 16 Croft Street

16 Croft Street is a funky loft house hidden away down one of Toronto's historic laneways. The ivy-covered three-storey complex near Bathurst and College was redeveloped in the late 1980s from a rug cleaning company and an original wartime munitions factory. This two bedroom, two bathroom hits the market for $1,488,000.

Each of the five freehold lofts are individually designed. This space at 2,000 square feet is like stepping inside an authentic hard loft with walls of exposed brick, 14 foot ceilings and a ladder to a very snug upper level.

The view from the private rooftop patio is spectacular, while the immediate area is totally walkable and chock full of restaurants and cafes. Plus, laneway housing is rather exclusive in Toronto given the dated by-laws that govern such residences.

MOVE ON IF

Laneways (and excessive raccoons) creep you out. While raccoons dominate the 416, those crafty critters gravitate to cramped city yards and laneways. For around the same price, you can purchase a house -- likely a row or semi -- in the same area.
