This corner loft suite on the sixth level of the seven-storey, tiered boutique Taylor Lofts is close to both The Beaches and the downtown core.

Featuring a 200-square-foot terrace with no balcony above and unobstructed southeast views, this modern, two-bedroom condo home would be ideal for an urban single, couple or small family.

“As the very first person to choose their layout, I figured (choosing from 90 different floor plans) would be close to impossible. Then … unit 603 sat in front of me and it took me seconds to realize it was everything I needed in a home. Living here, for me at least, is comparable to living in a Toronto treetop,” says homeowner Jeremy Abbaterusso.

“The building is small compared to most developments and with an east-facing balcony accompanied by a southeast terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows, the condo is always filled with natural light and greenery,” says Abbaterusso.

Features of the kitchen include Caesarstone quartz counters, a ceramic tile backsplash, sleek cabinetry, a pantry and stainless appliances.

“The neighbourhood is full of trendy restaurants, cafés, stores and people from all cultures. It is a close jog to the beach or financial core along with being closely accessible to main highways,” he adds.
