LISTING AGENT Christopher Bibby, Sutton Group-Associates Realty Inc.
The Action: About 40 buyers arranged for a private tour of this one-bedroom suite in an authentic loft project, about a block north of Queen and Dufferin streets along the railroad tracks.
What They Got: On the second floor of the Noble Court Lofts, which was used as a manufacturing warehouse since 1910, this 650-square-foot loft preserves 12-foot ceilings and wood posts and beam throughout, as well as exposed brick walls along two large windows in the open living and dining areas.
New modern touches include hardwood floors throughout, a refinished bathroom, and a revamped galley kitchen with granite counters, subway tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliances.
The unit comes complete with laundry machines and surface parking.
The monthly fee is only $351 with few amenities to maintain in the building, which is steps from the Drake and Gladstone hotels, restaurants and galleries.
The Agent’s Take: “The fact it was very raw is the main attraction for most people,” says agent Christopher Bibby. “This is what a lot of people are looking for in Parkdale, because you have a lot of creative types [there] and the loft spaces really work well for them.”
