My contractor Matt Creelman [Mattu Building Specialists] and I gave this Button Factory Loft a facelift renovation last year.
This spectacular loft has just hit the market. [MLS link] Situated in Toronto’s Little Italy, a block up from College street, it’s in a prime location, a prime building and leaves nothing for the want.
Here’s what we did:
The previously outdated tiny kitchen was opened-up to the main living space and redone top to bottom. An AyA custom kitchen, with Ceaser Stone counters, and marble back splash. I puzzled this baby in, using every inch and creatively utilizing the under-stair area for a bar credenza c/w wine fridge, as well as pulling adding an open bookcase from counter up to add depth and interest on this feature wall seen from the living area.
The remaining triangle of under-stair-space is a hidden storage pull-out drawer currently used to hide away baby toys, solving the number one loft living issue, storage!
The powder room was reorganized and updated with slick contemporary fixtures, a custom espresso stained vanity counter and mirror, all mounted on a marble clad wall. Opposite the sink and toilet, we created a smart solution to hide the laundry and storage using a series of 3 sliding panels, the largest central panel fitted to look like an over-sized wall hung mirror, never hinting to the function beyond.
The drywall knee walls from upper landing and enclosed stairs, were opened with slick glass guards mounted on espresso stained wood panels. This change creates a wide open, sophisticated space.
The master bedroom and main bathroom were also reorganized allowing a double sink, on custom floating espresso vanity in the bath, and a sizable walk-in closet in the master bedroom.
High end light fixtures were installed throughout, the insulation updated, new solid wood recessed panel doors with stainless lever handles installed, and a fresh coat of paint finished this reno off without leaving a detail untouched.
A hidden gem to this space is a set of wood stairs leading to the roof, already prep’d to receive a roof deck with gas line and power installed and waiting.
