1 St.Johns Unit #501
Live surrounded by sunlight in this corner Junction loftSend This Listing To A Friend
This incredible penthouse two-storey corner unit, with northeast exposure and full windows all the way around, practically glows. The building has a NY meat-packing district loft feel, with industrial roots and few bells and whistles. Here, it’s all about the unit, the light and the terrace.
The open concept living/dining/kitchen is an ideal entertaining space flooded by natural light by day, and flickering with city lights after dark. The kitchen features a new gas stove and stainless steel fridge, with centre island for meal prep or to serve cocktails. The second bedroom is also this floor – currently opened up as a den space. This room, with windows galore and closet, could easily be converted back to a bedroom by adding a wall and door. Those needing two home offices could use this space as-is to work from home. The first of the two bathrooms is also on this floor.
Upstairs, the second floor is home to the master bedroom and private office space. You might be surprised to find even more light up here, along with spectacular views.
The sunny office area, which could be used as a family room/den has a walkout to the terrace. Oh, the terrace. This unbelievable wrap-around space above the tree-line has north-east exposure. Glass panels offer unobstructed views of Dundas West all the way around to CN tower views. There is a gas BBQ hookup and room to create different seating areas for eating, lounging and a quiet glass of wine as you watch the sun go down.
Head the other way through the office into the master bedroom. This room also enjoys a healthy dose of natural light. You’ll find ample storage, an ensuite bath, and access to the in-suite laundry.
The HVAC is brand new, purchased, and installed May 2020, and the unit includes one covered parking spot with visitor parking onsite.
About the Building
Converted to lofts in 2000, this industrial structure has just 15 units. There are no amenities here, save resident and visitor parking. But the vibrant Junction neighbourhood offers restaurants, cafes and fitness studios and High Park just a few blocks south. If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, Cobblestone Courtyard offers park benches, stone seating, and trees. It’s the perfect spot to chat with those in the neighbourhood, and take in the sights and sounds of the city.

About The Junction
Located at the corner of Clendenan and Dundas West, which is the western gateway to, and guardian of, The Junction. If you’re looking for a neighbourhood that avoids ‘cookie-cutter’ and embraces the idiosyncratic, you’ll feel right at home here. This off-the-cuff quality has attracted a variety of residents and created a strong sense of community and identity. Classic brick stone residential homes, revamped industrial-finished lofts, and new builds, are all available in the area – making the options as unique as the people who inhabit them.
On any given day, residents of the area can be found at a variety of cafes (Cool Hand of a Girl), taverns (The Gaslight), pubs (Indie Ale House), restaurants (Playa Cantina), boutiques (Mjolk), and parks. A reflection of its working-class roots (and perhaps because of the end of prohibition) there is no shortage of pubs and unique start-ups in this entrepreneurial, and just down-right ‘awesome’, part of Toronto.
