Toronto home in gorgeous historic building is up for sale for the first time ever
When unit 115 at 363 Sorauren Avenue hit the market on October 25, it marked the first time the spacious loft has ever been listed for sale.
Located in the Robert Watson Lofts, the unit is an original builder's model suite and, according to the listing, this is the first time the home has ever been available despite its early 20th-century exterior.
Unsurprisingly — though unfortunate for hopeful buyers — the stunning space sold in just 11 days on the market, fetching $150,100 over the $1,049,900 asking price.
Once home to the Robert Watson Candy Factory, 363 Sorauren Avenue was originally built in 1903. An exterior extension was added in 2007, and the over-century-old building was converted into 153 loft units.
Original details of the former factory remain apparent throughout unit 115, which spans more than 1,200 square feet across two levels.
The character-filled living room features an exposed brick wall, steel beams, concrete floors, and soaring beamed ceilings.
Two large arched windows let the westerly light in and offer views of the private tree-lined patio.
The open-concept space is combined with the dining area and kitchen beyond; the sleek polished concrete floors carry through and add to the factory-inspired aesthetic.
The kitchen is modern, with light wood cabinets, granite countertops, and silver hardware and appliances.
The main level also includes a den, which could function as a home office or second bedroom, as well as one of the unit's two bathrooms.
A floating glass and steel staircase carries up to the second floor.
The bedroom is open to the lower level, although a set of curtains create privacy.
Just beyond lies a four-piece marble ensuite and a spacious walk-in closet.
The home also comes with one underground parking space and one storage locker.
It enjoys access to the building's amenities, which include a gym, party room, and landscaped courtyard with barbeques.
Sorauren Park is situated down the street, and the shops and restaurants of Roncesvalles are just steps away.
