The Abbey Lofts have become one of the most unique loft complexes in Toronto. With its impressive architecture that adorns each and every unit, the lofts are located in between High Park and Roncesvalles Avenue and are situated within a converted neo-Gothic church.
Each of the 24 lofts located at 384 Sunnyside Avenue are built within the classic church that was designed in 1910. The units feature an impressive medieval style with a stone clad design and grey limestone walls designed by the infamous architect William George Burns. Most of the building has been left unchanged even though the church has seen multiple name changes and multiple owners over the last century or so. Whether you are living in the lofts, touring available units, or simply driving through the area, this building is very distinctive and impressive.
Almost every one of the 24 units features original exposed walls, sunken in living rooms and impressive 13 foot ceilings. Add into the mix, impressive open concept spacing, galley-style kitchens, and much of the original Edwardian features and you've got.....heaven!
Throughout the building you will find some of the original church doors, stained glass archways, original limestone walls, and a host of newer windows that bring light flooding in.
The neighbourhood of High Park where Abbey Lofts is situated, features impressive shopping, a vast array of restaurants and nightlife and it is just a short jaunt to High Park which makes recreation an easy convenience as well. Public transportation options are infinite and right outside your doorstep and the lofts are situated just a few minutes from the Go train station and subway stations near Bloor Street.
Those with their own form of transportation also enjoy the fact that the Gardiner Expressway and a number of hiking trails and waterfront parks are just a short distance away.
While potential loft owners have an array of options when perusing through the downtown Toronto area, the outdoor atmosphere and neighbourhood located on green, garden-like streets make the Abbey lofts stand out in aesthetic appeal. Once inside, the unique design and spacing of each and every loft allow owners to shun the concrete jungle feeling that can coincide with other downtown units.
