Surrounded by nature in an urban setting, this spacious West Toronto furnished apartment is in a grand old home on a large, treed property steps away from Lake Ontario. With tall ceilings and generously scaled rooms, light flows through the many windows to illuminate the interior from dawn to dusk. Situated on the 2nd-floor, it opens out onto an expansive 320-sq-ft deck that is a joy through the summer and fall months. Set away from the street, this place is a quiet oasis. In the summer and fall sounds of nature predominate; bird songs; breezes through the trees; and crashing of waves on gustier days. Yard work or traffic noise may intrude, but usually not for long. The small park at the end of our short street offers an exceptional view of Toronto’s skyline. We plan to be away in Nova Scotia for the fall term This beautiful abode will be available from September 1st, as summer days give way to October colours, and through to December 15th. Whether you are visiting one of the many universities and colleges in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) — or taking in some of the cultural and recreational attractions Toronto has to offer— this home is an excellent departure point, whether by transit (TTC & GO), car, bicycle, or even foot. A 30-minute walk along Lakeshore Blvd W gets you to Humber College’s Lakeshore Campus. Many of the park lands lining the Lake Ontario shore are linked by pedestrian walkways, bike paths, and boardwalks that stretch across the city. There are many regional attractions too. Niagara Falls is a 75-minute drive away. The Niagara wine region is even closer. Cyclists will bike there and take the train back. Stratford’s renowned Theatre Festival is just an hour and half away by car. (apartment rental includes a reserved parking space). If remote working is part of your plan, the apartment has 3 desk-work areas, one in each bedroom, and the living room as well. The dining room, sunroom, and deck are also spots where you can sit down with a laptop. Wireless Wifi works throughout with our ½ Gigabyte bandwidth internet connection. The amenities of this apartment make it easy to stay home. In addition to a well equipped kitchen, the gas BBQ on the deck is great to use on hot summer evenings. The internet includes cable service. The washer and dryer (no charge) are located in the basement of the building. Good grocery stores, shops and restaurants are nearby. The Humber Bay Farmers Market opens June 1st, and runs Saturday mornings all summer long. Costco is 3k away. We often shop on Roncesvalles Avenue, the lively high street of Toronto’s High Park neighbourhood. Roncesvalles has an array of green grocers; the Polish deli Benna’s; plus health food stores, and specialty shops for fish and meat, used bookstores, cafés and more. This large old home once anchored a more extensive property. Much of the estate was sectioned off decades ago. It is now owned by our downstairs neighbour and old friend — a multi-talented handyman who transformed it into five apartments. He continues to do the upkeep himself. It is a big house and property for one person to maintain, so expect to see scaffolding near the front entrance, and some house repair that is in mid-process. Thankfully, the expansion of our beautiful deck was finished 4 years ago, making this beautiful Toronto apartment an exceptional place to stay through late-Summer into Fall.
