Before And After Reveal At Printer’s Row In Riverdale

Riverdale / Playter Estates

Back in October 2012 we featured a two-storey 1100 square foot loft in Printer’s Row purchased by one of our clients in our popular ‘Home Of The Month’ post. Our Seller, who was also the original developer, offered the loft for sale with a custom renovation package. This was exactly what our Buyer was seeking, so together they transformed the space which had been tenanted for over a decade into a dreamy custom Zoomer residence. You can click HERE to read the story on how this loft was sold exclusively by, when we brought our Buyer and Seller together to create this one of a kind residence. This loft never hit the Multiple Listing Service.

Here are some photos of the loft before it was renovated:



Almost all of the original fixtures and fittings were removed in the renovation, with new blond plank flooring, recessed lighting and custom built-ins installed (including a dining bench) to elevate the entertainment space. The loft now has two new luxe washrooms, and the contemporary kitchen with island was created using standard cabinetry from Ikea, several which were faced with custom walnut paneled doors. The stairwell drywall ‘railings’ were replaced with glass panels to visually expand the space and reflect more light. And our client sourced some stunning George Nelson pendant light fixtures for the two storey living space which cleverly emphasize the height and volume of the loft.

Here’s how the loft looks now!

We love how the slate fireplace was painted in the same neutral as the walls, retaining the texture of the stone while softening its presence as a towering focal point. Well done!



Although our client had some guidance from one of urbaneer’s fav designers, CozDesign, and the original developer Bob Mitchell, this space truly reflects her own vision. It’s breathtaking!

Is this to kind of space you envision yourself in?

Imagine being able to describe the kind of home you want to a realtor, and have him present the perfect place.

And, if it’s not quite right stylistically, he’ll arrange for his architects, designers, and trades to work with you to make your dream of home a reality.

Yes, that’s what we do at

May we be of service?
