About

3-bedroom Victorian family home in Beaconsfield Village/West Queen West. Our home is a bright, charming and colourful detached Victorian house on a quiet tree-lined street in the west end of downtown Toronto, just steps from the shops and restaurants of West Queen West. There a number of parks, playgrounds and farmers' markets in the area as well as a YMCA and excellent schools. We are very close to the Queen and Dundas streetcar lines (direct to U of T, OCAD and Ryerson) and it's a 10-minute ride on the Dufferin bus to the Bloor subway line (with access to York, U of T, Ryerson). We are also a 20-minute bike ride mainly on separated bike lanes to downtown/U of T/Ryerson/OCAD. Our home has a spacious living room, dining room and eat-in kitchen with a gas range, two bathrooms (2-piece downstairs, 4-piece upstairs with a jetted tub, rain shower-head and heated floors). There are three bedrooms upstairs: one master bedroom with a queen-sized bed; one children's room with a twin bunkbed; and a third bedroom with a double bed. There is a small landscaped backyard with a vegetable and flower garden in the summer months and a sunroom with two sets of french doors for outdoor dining. There is a gas BBQ. The rental price includes utilities (except for internet). Monthly professional cleaning with our trusted cleaner is available for an additional fee. There is a shady front porch and gated English garden in front of the house. Unlike many homes in the area, our home is "detached", which means it doesn't share a wall with neighbouring homes and is very quiet. You will have exclusive use of the entire main floor and second floor of our home as well as exclusive use of the backyard, BBQ and sun room and the washer/dryer and storage area in basement. The rest of the basement is a one-bedroom apartment with a separate side entrance to outside. The two units are completely separate and we have always had wonderful tenants. The current basement lease is up in July, so there is also the possibility of renting all three floors for an extra $1000 if you need the additional home-office or family room space (photo/video of the lower floor available on request) Parking for one midsize car in garage. Price includes all utilities (except internet). Monthly cleaning service can be arranged for additional fee. Price could be negotiated slightly lower if tenant is willing and able to take on some outdoor seasonal maintenance duties (snow shoveling, raking leaves, etc).
