Authentic NY-style loft in the heart of Beaconsfield Village
Suite 315 is a 2-storey, two bedroom, two bathroom loft with soaring 17 foot ceilings, exposed ductwork, and pretty picture windows that allow an abundance of natural light year-round thanks to unobstructed city views. The desirable open floorplan with hardwood floors promotes a bright and airy decor.
The oversized master bedroom haven on the second floor features a large walk-in closet and four-piece ensuite bath. There is also a versatile second bedroom on the main floor, plus an additional four-piece bath that makes entertaining on the main level a cinch. The current owner rents private month-to-month garage parking and addtional storage nearby for $200 per month, or street permit parking may be available.
Originally built as the Ideal Bread Company in 1919, the facade was designed in an Edwardian Classical style that has endured since the 2007 conversion to the Argyle Lofts. This heritage building is full of charming details but has been modernized for the discerning buyer, creating the perfect marriage of old world charm and modern sophistication. This is truly a one-of-a-kind loft.

The neighbourhood.Beaconsfield is popular with members of Toronto's arts community who have gradually migrated westward along Queen Street to the unique and funky houses and studios found in this neighbourhood. The colourful shopping district on Dundas Street West features an eclectic mix of Portuguese markets, established cafes, and emerging restaurants. Queen Street West is home to a mix of boutique clothing stores, art galleries, and artisanal restaurants and bakeries. In the day, residents can be found biking and jogging in Trinity-Bellwoods Park, and at night, the scene comes alive in local haunts like The Drake Hotel, the Gladstone Hotel, and bars along Ossington Avenue.
The Argyle Lofts sit on the former site of the Ideal Bread Factory, constructed in 1919 by Montreal architect Sydney Comber. The 5-storey building is an excellent example of Edwardian classical style applied to an industrial building. Additions to the north along Dovercourt in 1923 and 1933 were also designed by Comber. In use as a bakery until 1957, this building was converted to residential lofts in 2007. The factory clock still remains above the front entrance. Original architectural and engineering drawings for the building can be found in the Toronto Archives.
