Interior design fans might recognise this Toronto loft, located in the West End’s gritty Junction Triangle neighbourhood; it’s previously featured in a raft of magazine editorials and is now for sale.
Sterling Road is the epicentre of transformation in the neighbourhood, which gets its name from the train tracks which enclose it. Home to industrial giants like Nestle (the street often smells like chocolate) as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art, workshops, galleries and book shops, the road is also welcoming three condominium buildings over the coming years.
But those new lofts will be hard-pressed to match 240 Sterling Road, which spans an impressive 3,600 sq ft and features a series of open-plan volumes with soaring 16-ft-high wooden ceilings.
Polished concrete floors run across the two-bedroom Toronto property, which is zoned for commercial and residential use and is presently used as a live/work space, with the master suite in the mezzanine above the living room.
Outside is an enclosed courtyard while the roof terrace is incorporated into a lush green roof.
