Converted from an upholstery factory (~built in 1901) so it has super tall ceilings, solid brick construction and is completely renovated with hardwood floors throughout. Common areas areas light-filled and airy. Eat-in kitchen faces backyard.
We are a queer couple subletting a room in our lovely home from February to May. Our house is located on Dovercourt between Dupont and Davenport.
Price (800.00) is all-inclusive (hydro, heat, water, internet, Netflix and laundry).
About the house: back in the day, the building was converted from an upholstery factory (~built in 1901) so it has super tall ceilings, solid brick construction (great sound-barrier) and is completely renovated with hardwood floors throughout (except for the kitchen and basement). Common areas are large and airy (living room/dining room) has a huge storefront window that fills the space with light in the morning/midday. The eat-in kitchen faces out to the backyard and really shines in the afternoon. The basement has the washer/dryer, is dry/finished and has room to store stuff although the staircase down limits what you store to small furniture and boxes. The space has steps throughout the property.
About the room: decent-sized and easily fits a double and could fit a queen. There's an west-facing window and a skylight and a large closet. The room can come furnished with a futon-bed and a drafting table or, if you prefer, unfurnished.
About the neighbourhood: walk Dovercourt to Bloor and all the cafes, bars, restaurants (15 mins), solid coffee/pastries at the Sovereign on Davenport/Oakwood and minutes from Geary Ave (Darkhorse coffee, Blood Brothers Brewery, Geary Lane, Kitch), parks (Earlscourt and Dovercourt), right off the Dovercourt (#161) and Ossington (#63) buses for ease to Ossington subway, and the Davenport bus (#127) to Dupont/Spadina subways.
About us: queer (she/her and white, and he/they/them and brown), work consistent hours, friendly and social (occasional get-togethers/dinners). We have a dog (a retired racing greyhound) and a reserved but very nice cat. Unfortunately, we can't accept pets but hope that you'll enjoy the cute company.
Get in touch, message me and we'll set up a time to meet and check out the space!
There's a front door or, if you prefer, you can enter/leave through back through the garage.
We'll be living together so it's our hope to have pleasant interactions!
This listing is intended to be a monthly sublet from Feb 1 - May 31 so, ideally, we'd airbnb with the same person the whole time - next best would be on a monthly basis.
1. We're non-smokers so, if you do smoke, we ask that you smoke outside.
2. Please be mindful of the cat who will try to escape.
