The Home of Charles Pachter For some people, Charles Pachter is as notable a real estate speculator as he is an artist. The 68-year-old painter and sculptor has owned a series of downtown buildings, with an eye for location that's inevitably been one step ahead of real estate trends. He explains that it was accidental - it was easier to make money as a landlord than an artist back then, but he sold his last income property years ago, and has settled into his striking home/studio/gallery near the Art Gallery of Ontario with an undisguised zeal for staying there for the long haul. Since architect Steven Teeple's renovation of the space was finished four years ago, adding Pachter House to the Moose Factory studio and gallery, the notoriously gregarious Pachter has thrown the space open for countless events, and last night he hosted the kick-off event for artsScene's Art Of Living architecture series, showcasing distinctive houses around Toronto.
