The Hepbourne Hall Lofts building is extremely rich in history and character. Originally constructed as an extension of the Dovercourt-St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, the structure has a formidable Gothic façade that is echoed in the interior arched leaded windows and frames.
Located at 110 Hepbourne Street, just east of Dufferin Grove Park, this building houses only 21 hard lofts. Designed by the multi award-winning architect Bob Mitchell, Hepbourne Hall Lofts’ exclusivity is only rivaled by its prestige. Bob Mitchell, of Mitchell & Associates, is responsible for some of the best authentic conversion lofts in Toronto. In fact, the city’s first legal loft conversion (of the Dominion Felt Company) was headed by Mitchell.
I’m a longtime fan of Mitchell’s work and it was an obvious choice to include Hepbourne Hall Lofts at SelectCondos.ca. Each loft features stunning layouts from the smallest 575 sq. ft. unit to the largest 3-storey 2200 sq. ft. penthouse. The ceilings are approximately 12” high and the maple hardwood floors date back to the 1940’s when the building was used as a training facility for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Similarly to many other hard loft buildings, the maintenance fees at Hepbourne Hall are low due to the lack of facilities. The surrounding Bloorcourt neighbourhood, however, supplies all the amenities you could ever need. Located south of Bloor, in between Dufferin and Ossington, Hepbourne Street is close to many restaurants, cafes, banks, pharmacies and markets. Bloorcourt Village is an ethnically and culturally diverse part of Toronto where you can find Portuguese, Ethiopian and Japanese dining spots virtually side by side.
The Dufferin subway station is a few minutes northwest of 110 Hepbourne Street and there are many streetcar stops along Dufferin, Bloor and Ossington. Alternatively, from Hepbourne Hall Lofts, you can walk to other neighbourhoods such as Koreatown, Little Italy and Beaconsfield Village.
