A virtual property tour in the Industrial Revolution Lofts located at 676 Richmond Street West with Christopher Bibby, Toronto’s #1 real estate representative for downtown condominium sales.

Converted in 1997 and nestled right in the heart of Queen West we are here at my latest listing in the intimate and architecturally significant, Industrial Revolution Lofts.

With incredibly rich details throughout the loft offers over 1800 interior square feet distributed over two luxuriously appointed floors as the floor plan provides a considerate division of space. The layout is so sought after, the last time it became available was over two decades ago

While situated just steps from a vibrant and urban intersection, at Queen & Bathurst upon entering either of the loft’s two separate entrances, you are greeted by a real sense of calm and tranquility – it has a special feeling. The front door from Richmond Street gives the property the feel of a townhome, while the interior entrance greets you instantaneously as one of the best loft conversions, the city has to offer.

The Bob Mitchell conversion displays a sense of history and unique charm. While the upper level has a very residential setting, the lower level provides and a myriad of potential uses.

The living room captured me when I made my first visit here and truly is the heart of the loft as it provides an impressive and comforting environment. With a rare wood burning fireplace, custom mill work, soaring coffered ceilings and upgraded lighting & surround sound, the space is inviting and has fantastic depth

The thoughtfully designed dining room features a custom banquette and is surrounded by extensive millwork. The clearly defined room is an entertainers dream as it is a short distance from the enclosed kitchen and wood burning fireplace and overlooks Richmond Street.

The partially enclosed kitchen is equipped with full sized appliances, ample storage and for all cooking enthusiasts a natural gas cooktop. It as well provides a convenient breakfast bar for a more casual setting and daily use.

The Master Bedroom was ingenuously designed as it is tucked away from all of the action ensuring optimal privacy and comfort. A custom staircase takes you to your sleeping quarters which features a large walk-in closet and unique hatch door which provides additional storage. A spa-like four piece ensuite bath is conveniently situated just steps from the bedroom and is outfitted with top of the line fixtures and frosted glass which allow in, ample natural light.

One of the most noteworthy features of this loft is the abundance of natural light which cascades through an 18 Foot, south facing wall of windows at the front of the unit overlooking Richmond Street. It provides a calming residential setting in an urban landscape, quite different from what you would expect in most larger loft conversions and condominiums.

The lower level provides a dramatic, expansive setting for a variety of uses and could quite comfortably accommodate a home studio, larger office space or expansive family room. Given our changing landscape due to the pandemic and more of us spending additional time at home, the property provides endless opportunity to its new owner.

The rear portion of the lower level is utilized as a home office, however could easily be transformed into a second bedroom if desired as it is conveniently connected to a four-piece bathroom. Given our changing work environment, the space affords its new owner a well-defined work space just steps from a comfortable living space.

The front yard terrace provides its new owner with a piece of serenty, as the enclosed exterior space is perfect for enjoying the surrounding neighborhood and community. It as well will grant an adequate environment for entertaining, bbqing and relaxing during the warmer months.

Should you decide to step out from this exceptional home, we are just steps away from all of the fantastic shops, restaurants, galleries and parks that Queen Street has to offer.

If you are looking for an exceptional and expansive one of a kind residence nestled right in the heart of Queen West than this just might be the property for you. My name is Christopher Bibby and this is my latest two bedroom loft in The Industrial Revolution Located At 676 Richmond Street West.
