First-time buyers will be delighted to find this two-storey New York style loft near Yonge and Eglinton. It’s in a boutique building with only 27 units, says listing agent Daniel Bloch.

Suite 101 “will appeal to a buyer who wants lots of space for the best price and anyone with an art collection who wants large amounts of wall space,” he says. The airy space also offers good acoustics for, say, guitar players, and a sunny workspace for artists.

“All of the rooms are excellent sizes. It also has a main floor powder room and super high ceilings, not usually found in the midtown area,” Bloch says.

The corner suite has walls of windows and a walkout to the balcony from the open concept living/dining room. The kitchen has built-in European appliances and a breakfast bar.

A floating staircase leads to the second floor bedroom and den. One of the best features is the large bedroom, which can accommodate a king-sized bed. It also has wall-t0-wall closets. The five-piece ensuite bathroom has a separate shower and tub, Bloch says.

One underground parking space and a locker are included.
