House-hunting in Toronto is notoriously tough, but every now and then you stumble upon a place to call your own. And this incredible Leslieville loft big enough to host 50 watch collectors might just be it. If you’re in the market, you’re in luck, because 245 Carlaw Avenue is currently listed by Toronto-based luxury real estate firm Michael Maxwell Homes for just under $3 million.
The place keeps its industrial charm without feeling sterile. The concrete floors and columns are a nod to the building’s history as a gum factory.
If windows are the eyes to a home, then these ones can see everything. High ceilings and no walls make for an airy space that’s perfect for hosting (we would know). After all, you can’t play pool alone!
The master bedroom is the size of most one-bedroom apartments, and your first order of business is to cancel your storage unit, ’cause this closet can store everything you own (including those corduroy suits you’ve been waiting to wear). The exposed wood shelving is an elegant touch, too.
Some homes serve as a private oasis, an escape from city life. This one invites life in.
