Lovely and sunny, 3+ BDRM, semi-detached (entire home) in the Upper Beaches.
Sunny home in a lovely family-friendly community - a great place to experience Toronto from, year-round. There is ample space here for 1 to 6 people to live comfortably.
On the 2nd floor, there are three bedrooms and a 3-piece bathroom - 5 people could sleep in those rooms comfortably.
The main floor has an open concept living/dining space (with a piano!) and a bright, beautiful kitchen with a walkout deck and backyard garden.
The basement is completely finished with a bright living space, a small bedroom for one more person, and another 3-piece bathroom. There is a separate basement entrance. We use this space as an office. The laundry and furnace rooms are also in the basement.
We have a wonderful garden in the front yard with a berm and lots of perennials (and little weeding!).
The home is located in a really lovely neighbourhood called Beach Hill, which sits in between the Beaches, Leslieville, Little India and Little Ethiopia/Danforth. This means you are surrounded by diversity and have endless opportunity for dining and shopping.
Our home is ideal for families with young children. We live in a great community for families - there is a primary school a short walk from home (with a community recreation centre, pool and tennis courts) and multiple parks and libraries nearby. There are lots of young children around and people are openly friendly to each other. Steps away from the home there are some great amenities: a coffee shop (Bandit Coffee), a unique grocer/cafe/bistro (Bodega Henriette), a Hungarian restaurant (Budapest), a florist (East of Eliza), a wellness centre (Upper Beaches Wellness), a spa (The Turquoise Room), a pharmacy (Zara's Pharmacy), and much more.
You can reach University of Toronto or Ryerson University in 30 minutes by transit or bicycle. (Toronto is an increasingly bike-friendly city.) You have a streetcar at the corner of the street; the subway a 7-minute walk North; and another streetcar line a 10-minute walk South.
I will be on sabbatical from July 1 2017 - June 30 2018 and we are interested in signing a one-year lease. You would pay for utilities, but everything is set up/wired (including high-speed internet); we would just transfer accounts to you for the year.
Tenant is responsible for paying for utilities and for setting-up utilities in their name. We can provide you with a list of the information required to set-up services.
To give you a sense of the cost of utilities, here are the average monthly costs based on our family’s consumption:
Hydro: $100/month (paid bimonthly)
Natural gas: $125/month (paid monthly)
Water: $50/month (paid 3x per year)
Street parking is available. Permits can be purchased from the City of Toronto. Cost is approximately $170/year. A couple of spaces are usually available directly across from the house. The busiest time for parking is between 4-5pm.
The property will be managed by a family member who lives 30min east of Toronto. We would like to ask that tenants undertake minor repairs up to $200 in any one-month. We will deduct these costs from the following month’s rent after a receipt for the expenses is provided.
We prefer to lease our house furnished. Here is a list of the furniture that we have to share:
3 bedframes and mattresses (One queen, two doubles)
3 bedside tables
3-piece sofa set
Dining table, bench and four dining chairs
Kitchen table and six chairs
High chairs (two)
Office table and chair
Major appliances available
Refrigerator (with freezer)
Other items available
We will insure the house against damages but not its contents. We recommend that you buy insurance to protect your possessions.
