Rental of the week: 384 Sunnyside Avenue
Former churches can make for some of the most stunning living spaces around. There's a handful of these adaptive re-use projects around Toronto worthy of gushing over, but it's rare to see units come up in a rental capacity.
That's what makes this listing at 384 Sunnyside Ave. special. With a sun room in one of the church's old towers, it has to be one of the most intriguing conversions of this kind around the city. Anyone who likes exposed wood beams will be taken with this one.
There are some practical issues with the space. Being up near the ceiling means that there's lots of funny angles and not much wall space, but these are more quirky features of a unique space than major drawbacks.
Someone looking for a dream apartment/condo space to occupy before moving up to a full house. The rent is obviously steep, but this would be an amazing place to live for a year before starting a family.
You're spooked out by old churches. In the wrong light, some of the coolest features here could be construed as creepy.
