A Modern Loft In Leslieville

offered at $525,000

Whether your furnishing aesthetic is shabby chic or modern contemporary this crisp fresh urbane loft is the perfect setting for living a high-style life.

Located in the central east quadrant of the city centre on Carlaw Avenue just north of Queen Street East in Prime Leslieville, living in The Garment Factory is a quick streetcar ride to the financial core or The Beach, a short stroll to all of hip Queen East, and moments to Lake Shore Boulevard and the Gardiner Expressway providing speedy access to the airport or cottage country. It’s also steps to character storefronts and intriguing eateries, including Gio Rana’s Really Really Nice Restaurant which I featured in a post called A Nose For Leslieville sharing my own connection to this dynamic location back in the 1980s! It’s one of the many destinations I love about this neighbourhood, including Te Aro Roasters who know their way around a cup of coffee, and Bobbette and Belle, where those with a sweet tooth teeth can experience authentically French patisserie. Love vintage furniture? I just bought some amazing teak pieces at Guff Furniture In Leslieville for my own Swell Dwell renovation called The Tales From Tennis Crescent!
