16 Croft Street is a funky loft house hidden away down one of Toronto's historiclaneways. The ivy-covered three-storey complex near Bathurst and Collegewas redeveloped in the late 1980s from a rug cleaning company and an original wartime munitions factory.This two bedroom, two bathroom hits the market for $1,488,000.

Eachof the five freehold lofts are individually designed. This space at2,000 square feet is like stepping inside an authentic hard loft withwalls of exposed brick, 14 foot ceilings and a ladder to a very snugupper level.

Theview from the private rooftop patio is spectacular, while the immediatearea is totally walkable and chock full of restaurants and cafes. Plus,laneway housing is rather exclusive in Toronto given the dated by-laws that govern such residences.

MOVE ON IF

Laneways (and excessive raccoons) creep you out. While raccoons dominate the 416,those crafty critters gravitate to cramped city yards and laneways. Foraround the same price, you can purchase a house -- likely a row or semi-- in the same area.
