This one bedroom loft with high-end finishes is the complete package because it also includes an owned parking space and a storage locker.
The entrance to the loft has a good layout with a space underneath the floating staircase which is excellent for organizing and storing frequently-used items.

View looking back into the suite from the living room with the second storey bedroom and master bath above.
The dining area adjoins the linear kitchen and quickly and is flooded with light from the two-storeys of floor-to-ceiling windows of the living area.
Dining right beside the kitchen makes best use of the space.
The linear kitchen features all built-in appliances. These include a stainless steel built-in microwave and range hood, a built-in oven and smooth top cook-top. Included under-cabinet lighting spans the entire width of the countertop making it easier to use the countertop as a well-lit workspace. Of particular note are the built-in dishwasher and the refrigerator/freezer which all have front panels that match the rest of the wood-grained-look of the cabinetry. The benefit of the panelled appliances is that they blend into the finishes of the living area and contribute to the visually-harmonized designer-look to the suite. Subway tile backsplash.
The bedroom has a sense of drama as it’s located on the 2nd-storey. It’s also functional because it keeps your bedroom and bathroom totally separate from your entertaining, cooking and living space on the main floor. However, because it’s open to below it benefits from the feeling of airiness and light of the two-stories of glass windows. The bedroom includes an overhead light fixture with a built-in ceiling fan that enhances the air circulation throughout the loft.
The bedroom has a closet and adjoins the large private ensuite 3 piece master bathroom. The platform bed frame offers substantial storage and may be included in the sale of the loft if the buyer so desires (to be documented in a separate agreement – contact listing agent for details.)

Located just off the entrance foyer this bathroom offers your guests convenience, while allowing you to keep your own bath private. Beautifully finished and truly luxurious.
The balcony serves as an extension of the living room in the warm months and is spacious enough for a full seating arrangement. It features unobstructed views overlooking the historic buildings of Liberty Village.
