A classic is reborn
At approximately 600 square feet, this loft offers spacious living with a great open concept layout. Modern industrial touches are tempered with timeless decor. Picturesque loft windows provide sun-drenched west views of tree-lined Beaconsfield Village. The generously sized master bedroom houses a double closet and sliding doors. Wide four inch plank solid hardwood floors, exposed ductwork, a contemporary kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a versatile office nook round out this gorgeous loft.
183 Dovercourt Road is at the epicentre of the Toronto art scene and steps to galleries, boutiques, and the Drake and Gladstone Hotels.
Originally built as the Ideal Bread Company in 1919, the facade was designed in an Edwardian Classical style that has endured since the 2007 conversion to the Argyle Lofts. This heritage building is full of charming details but has been modernized for the discerning buyer, creating the perfect marriage of old world charm and modern sophistication. This is truly a one-of-a-kind loft.

The neighbourhood.Beaconsfield is popular with members of Toronto's arts community who have gradually migrated westward along Queen Street to the unique and funky houses and studios found in this neighbourhood. The colourful shopping district on Dundas Street West features an eclectic mix of Portuguese markets, established cafes, and emerging restaurants. Queen Street West is home to a mix of boutique clothing stores, art galleries, and artisanal restaurants and bakeries. In the day, residents can be found biking and jogging in Trinity-Bellwoods Park, and at night, the scene comes alive in local haunts like The Drake Hotel, the Gladstone Hotel, and bars along Ossington Avenue.
The Argyle Lofts sit on the former site of the Ideal Bread Factory, constructed in 1919 by Montreal architect Sydney Comber. The 5-storey building is an excellent example of Edwardian classical style applied to an industrial building. Additions to the north along Dovercourt in 1923 and 1933 were also designed by Comber. In use as a bakery until 1957, this building was converted to residential lofts in 2007. The factory clock still remains above the front entrance. Original architectural and engineering drawings for the building can be found in the Toronto Archives.
