The Place: A two-level penthouse in the Schoolhouse Lofts, a 19-unit building that was previously home to Loretto College girls school. (We featured a neighbouring suite last year.)
Bragging Rights: You get the the majestic brick exterior of an educational institution, but none of the school-standard linoleum floors and fluorescent lighting. Instead, the interiors are fitted out with hardwood, marble and sparkly chandeliers.
Big Selling Point: The open kitchen and living room lend themselves to entertaining, while the bedrooms are tucked away in private corners of the suite.
Possible Deal Breaker: Plenty of nearby schools means plenty of nearby spots where students like to congregate—sometimes not so quietly.
