A piece of History:
'The Carlton Lofts were converted from a beautiful old mansion, the William Jamieson House, built sometime around 1860-1865, now designated a historical property due to the architectural significance of the Georgian Revival style of the home. With commercial space in the basement and on the main floor, the top of the home was divided into very special and limited unique lofts.
All with rooftop terraces overlooking the beautiful tree-lined streets of old Cabbagetown, they are a special treat – and one of the only lofts in Cabbagetown. They are on two levels, some with exposed wooden rafters. With so few lofts in it, this is one of the more exclusive loft residences in Toronto.'
Lucky to be involved in one of the rare sales in the building. It was designed heritage by the City in 1976 and is part of the Cabbagetown Northwest Heritage Conservation District, who says 185 Carlton is “one of the most improved and intact Georgian houses in the City”.
When the house was built 150 years ago, it would have stood fairly alone on the street, as the flanking homes were not built until 1878 and 1892 (by Charles Chamberlin). He could not purchase the lot at 185, as the lumber dealer Jamieson’s house was already there.'
