Condo of the week: 306 Sackville Street
Listed at $1,049,000, this two bedroom plus den loft is spacious and the maintenance fees aren't as frightening you might expect. Situated on a residential street in Cabbagetown, this building was a former peanut warehouse and processing plant, and was converted into a residence in 1989, now aptly named the Peanut Factory Lofts.
Units aren't frequently available in this boutique building, and the size and unique nature of them could be why. The floors in the living room were salvaged from the original peanut factory, and the aged maple offers a nice touch of contrast with the white fireplace adjacent to the staircase heading upstairs.
With two nicely sized bedrooms upstairs, a den and a private rooftop terrace, this loft offers many features that are attractive to a young family (or couple looking for extra space) with some room to grow.
Living in a unique space with some Toronto history. The original maple hardwood is a neat feature, and one can only wonder what happened on those floors as they stored endless amounts of peanuts.
MOVE ON IF
You have a peanut allergy. Who knows what kind of cross-contamination is around from the '80s? Jokes aside, move on if you're looking for a loft with more hard-loft features. With carpeted flooring in the bedrooms and drywall ceilings, this unit is missing some of the features we've grown used to in Toronto, like exposed brick, wooden beams and polished concrete.
Is this loft space worth the asking price? Let us know in the comments.
