High Park’s latest loft conversion is a stunning building that has been a landmark and part of the High Park neighbourhood for over 120 years. The Victoria Presbyterian Church held its first service in 1885 and has been a part of west Toronto’s history ever since. This elegant building was unusually designed without aisles. The rich details of red clay brick, limestone façade, high copper-covered spire, gothic arches and curved columns have contributed to this buildings eye-catching appeal.
The conversion of this century- old church and Sunday school building into unique modern loft-styled suites while preserving its original features such as the church spire, period light fixtures, soaring ceilings, historic capitals, hammer beam trusses and exposed interior masonry, have added to Victoria Lofts outstanding character and colourful charm.
The modern touches to this conversion include quartz/ granite countertops, soaker tubs and engineered hardwood flooring, spa-like bathrooms, open concept Euro- styled gourmet kitchens, stainless steel appliances and eco-friendly fittings for windows. The Victoria Lofts feature 38 one-of-a-kind one and two storey suites with one bedroom to two bedroom plus den designs. Most of the lofts include a private outdoor space with views of green landscaped roofs.
Victoria Lofts are found on Annette Street at Medland Street in the sought after High Park & Junction hood. The blending of century old homes and mature trees that surround this area, along with fabulous shopping found in the nearby Junction and Bloor West Village, have made this one of the most coveted hoods in west end Toronto to live. Singles, couples and families alike, all fit into these communities offering everything from gourmet foods, great eateries, design shops to fruit markets and butchers, all within a stroll away.
