I started condo hunting two years ago when I fell in love with the living room of a loft. Then I saw the bedroom and hated it. For anything less than a million bucks, the transition space from living room to bedroom and the layout of the bedroom are generally awkward.
For Example: Candy Factory Loft #221
I think lofts are best for minimalists seeking a fully integrated space. Fully integrated so there is no wall between living room and bedroom. Minimalists because if you can see everything you better not have too many things.
When I was looking, this place caught my eyes on realtor.ca. Yes, windows! But I never went to see it because I fell in love with the place I bought.
298 Jarvis Street #602
“The urban mix is the appeal of East End Danforth—a neighbourhood that has proximity to the boardwalk; manicured houses flying Beach flags; family-friendly Norwood Park; a southern fringe of stately detached Edwardians; co-op housing; semis in the $400,000 to $500,000 range closer to Woodbine; and new luxury townhouses. The sold-out townhouse complex Upper Beach Manors (above), near Main and Gerrard, invigorated real-estate activity in the area and inspired a doppelgänger, the new Upper Beach Townes, a collection of 32 houses split into two-level condos.”
As Toronto Life indicated, there are tonnes of townhouses under development in the Upper Beach. Hope some of them turn out well.
