Condo of the week: 1 Columbus Avenue

Inside this former Roncesvalles area baseball glove factory is a gorgeous 3-bedroom condo with vintage posts and beams, exposed brick and wood ceilings.

1 columbus ave torontoThe only big downside to this place is that there isn’t any outdoor space. So if you need fresh air it looks like you’re going to have to stick your head out a window.

1 columbus ave torontoGood For

A small family who isn’t ready to move to the suburbs yet. This 2270 square foot apartment spread out over three floors offers enough living space to comfortably fit a family but has that inner-city vibe that lets you ignore the inevitable relocation to suburbia for just a little while longer.

Move On If

You want outdoor space. This place doesn’t even have a balcony, and for more than $2 million you could definitely get a house with a backyard or at least a condo with a balcony.1 columbus ave toronto
