Property Description

One of Toronto’s most impressive historic conversions from an original Eaton Coach house circa 1891 to a modern state of the art condominium complex containing 3 super luxury multi-level townhomes. Redeveloped by George Rankin in 1983, (a well know investor and entrepreneur and owner of the Terra Cotta Inn ) and reimagined by renowned architect William Grierson, Rankin converted the derelict coach house into a homestead for his family.

Acquired by the current owner in 1997 as a high end rental property, the units have been once again renovated and now converted into condominiums. As part of this conversion, extensive upgrades have been made to the interior finishes and most of the building systems including the roof, furnaces and air conditioning units. The condominium documents were expertly tailored by one of Canada’s foremost condominium law specialists “Audrey Loeb of Shibley Righton LLP” and are available upon request.

Unit One, also know as “ The West House” is a 3 bedroom unit on 4 floors with a fully finished lower level. It has a private outdoor stone terrace off of the living room, and 2 private upper decks. The modern state-of-the-art kitchen features full size Calcutta marble slabs for the backsplash and countertops and European style white oak cabinetry with high end built-in Wolf and Miele appliances. The main floor has imported French limestone flooring and a grand scale Rumford wood burning fireplace with white oak surround and built in cabinetry. The Kitchen, Living and Dining areas are all combined into a Great Room that opens through French Doors onto a private outdoor walled terrace. All 4 bathrooms have been updated with each bedroom having its own integrated ensuite bath. The lower level is completely finished and includes a Lower Level Family Room and 3 piece washroom. The entire unit is full of natural light with skylights in just about every room, and the 3rd floor bedroom lies beneath the decorative steeple that toped the original coach house. The cobblestone courtyard entrance to the building includes parking for one car, and there are options available for a second parking spot.
