Across from the Mansion Street Lofts and mere minutes from the expressway and downtown sits the toughest competition that any 1000sqft loft will see in the area. All the lifestyle of a core home, with next to no maintenance (not even a sidewalk to shovel) and ZERO condo fees. Pretty much an old home made new, which is apparent immediately upon stepping onto the rebuilt front porch with its dimmed LED potlights shining down from a natural shiplap ceiling, clad in all-new roofing across the whole build (2019). Then encounter one of the nicest front doors in neighbourhood en route to the slate style tile which graces the front foyer. The natural tendency would be to let the crown moulding regally lead you around this main floor; from the living room with its hardwoods being shone down upon by the potlighting overhead, to the large dining room with space for a hutch, and then straight into the new kitchen with custom bar niches and extra cabinetry, (plus a large stone topped island supporting the efforts of the ambitious chef). There’s still space to entertain out back and to barbeque in your private urban garden, too. Though the downstairs has very convenient and practical laundry room and is host to the near new Furnace and Water Heater (2017), you’ll also have room for your family and friends to stay in one of the two secondary bedrooms, sharing the renovated main bath with its subway tile and wooden shelf detail. You, the newly-pampered homeowner, can unwind in your own master with custom built ins, both inside and outside of your own chic private ensuite. So, you could either pay crazy condo fees and clamor for extra evening parking… or you could just pull up three or more vehicles and keep those monthly payments for a mortgage. 131 Mansion is practical too - fancy that!
