House of the week: 510 College Street

One of the city's most amazing church-conversions is now for sale in the heart of Little Italy. The three bedroom townhouse at 510 College Street is priced at $10,950,000, and home to Toronto designer Joe Brennan.

The former Baptist Church was purchased in 2007 and converted into a collection of four freehold townhouses. The gated 8,000 square foot space is as awe-inspiring as a church should be, and the features are extraordinary. There's a two-storey library, arched windows, vaulted ceilings, and an elegant winding staircase leading to the master suite inside the former bell tower.

There's also plenty of outdoor space. The interior back wall is made of glass and features a secluded backyard setting instead of a small balcony. The lower level has an extensive wine cellar and there's two-car parking underground.

GOOD FOR

Those who seek an urban villa beyond the elite Bridle Path. There are few luxury listings in this area that come close to this one. The neighbourhood isn't as posh as Yorkville, which is usually a good thing, and cocktail hot spots like Bar Raval are right across the street.

MOVE ON IF

You'd rather a gated community for $10M. The entrance off College St. doesn't allow for much privacy. You'll likely still hear the hum of the streetcar and summer festivities, despite extensive sound proofing.
