Located in the heart of Toronto’s bustling Kensington Market, this unique laneway home is one of the most intriguing properties to hit the market in recent years, packing in loft vibes, live/work zoning and breathtaking city views.
Number 6 Littlehayes Lane is listed for CAD 2.199m with realtors Michael and Sara Camber from Royal LePage Signature Realty. Living spaces span five levels and approximately 2,449 sq ft, with the building presently divided into three units – two apartments and an office.
While each level has a unique character, the owner’s apartment on the third and fourth floors is undeniably the most spectacular space. It features exposed wooden beams and an eye-grabbing fireplace, finished in glazed green tiling with a concrete hearth.
A streamlined staircase connects the kitchen and living room to two upper-level bedrooms and access to the unique 300 sq ft private rooftop deck with a hot tub and unobstructed views of the CN tower, downtown skyline and Kensington Market.
The second-floor unit is presently leased as an office and has its kitchenette and bathroom, plus a ton of hand-built storage and lots of light from windows.
The basement unit, meanwhile, is occupied as a residence, with a full kitchen and bathroom. Living spaces are split across two levels, with a clever grated glass ceiling funnelling light into the underground kitchen and dining room below.
As the Toronto property is zoned for commercial and residential use, the building could be converted into a sprawling single-family home or continue to offer rental income for the future owner.
