Grange Lofts – 4-6B Grange Avenue & 94-98b Beverley Street

Rare for the area, this small conversion is a New York-style walk-up across from Grange Park. Housed in a small character building built sometime just prior to 1910, the 15 units in this historic building are all in the 900-1,100 square foot range. Located on a quiet tree-shaded residential street in central Toronto.

The Grange Avenue side of the Grange Lofts, the second phase of the building

To my eyes, there appears to be 2 different stages of construction. The 1910 Goad’s map shows the original square eastern building fronting onto Beverley Street. Then the 1913 map shows the western addition on Grange Avenue. Since the Beverley building was not on the 1903 map, we can only assume it was built sometime between 1903 and 1910. I have a feeling it was in 1908.

The Beverley Street side of the Grange Lofts, right across from Grange Park

The style indicates to me that it was originally an apartment building, built long before condos were ever an idea. It was converted by Grand River Investments in 1985.

Understated elegance is the name of the game at the Grange Lofts

It faces the AGO and Grange Park – one of Toronto’s first elite neighbourhoods. It is named after Grange House, built in 1817, by D’Arcy Boulton Jr., a member of one of early Toronto’s wealthiest and most prominent families. The bustle of King and Queen West or Chinatown are minutes away by foot. With Spadina and Dundas streetcars a quick walk away, anywhere in the city is easily reachable.

There is lots of exposed brick to go with the hardwood at the Grange Lofts

The Grange Lofts are do not have high ceilings – but they do have exposed brick and hardwood floors, with wood burning fireplaces adding to the period charm. Some have balconies, but none have parking.
