Town House living in a Church (Annette St Czechoslovak Baptist Church) . Built by John Shelley in 1888/1906

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Czechoslovak Baptist Church (1976-2010) has outlived its religious purpose when its congregation shrank from 80 regulars to 10 irregulars.

Rather than being torn down, it was converted to 8 town loft houses and renovated. It still has the look of a church, but contains really unique residences.

The building (John Shelley in 1888) is probably the oldest building in this area, dating to just 4 years after the Village of West Toronto Junction was founded at the corner of Dundas and Keele in 1884.

Sold for about $720,000
