This might be the most stunning church conversion condo in Toronto

There are quite a few church to condo conversions in Toronto these days with even more expected to grace this city in the years to come

And we can't blame developers, most church conversions are magnificent. In fact, we've written about a lot of them over the years

But this unit in the 12 Macpherson Ave. church might just be the best yet. 12 Macpherson Ave Toronto

The Macpherson Church lofts only have five units. 

The three-bedroom, five-bathroom unit was designed by Los Angeles celebrity designer Nicole Sassaman

A sitting room off the kitchen. 

"Every room has been designed to provide you the ultimate in urban living," said realtor Gillian Oxley in her listing.

"The stairs were completely rebuilt and rethought in terms of layout to accommodate an elevator," Oxley told blogTO. Yes, this unit has an elevator that serves all four storeys.

The home has two HVAC systems to keep the temperature constant. 

On the main floor are the principal living areas including the kitchen, living room, dining room and family room.

The kitchen is chef-worthy and the great room is cozy, although it could've been even more snug, as apparently there used to be a wood-burning fireplace there.
