Big Beautiful Central Toronto Apartment w/ 2 BR and Large Sunroom for Rent

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Rates from CAD $3400 | Monthly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From August 1, 2024 until September 1, 2025


We're moving overseas for an academic posting and looking for either roommates or a couple to take over our beloved home, from August 1 2024 - Sep 1 2025, with possibility to extend if we end up staying longer - but open to chatting about sooner or shorter periods. Beautiful, spacious (1000sq ft) fully furnished 2-bedroom apartment in a detached home with a huge open-concept living room and kitchen, and a separate sunroom. Super high ceilings throughout the apartment (~11 feet high!). Separate sunroom set up as an office with an electric sit/stand desk, monitor and monitor arms and sitting area. The main bedroom is big, with a Queen bed, large closet, and a lovely bay window area. If desired, the bay window in the main bedroom could also fit a desk we just prefer to keep our work out of our bedroom :). The back bedroom is medium sized with a Queen bed, dresser, and an electric sit/stand stand desk with monitor and monitor arms. Having the desks at opposite ends of the house is great for noise separation when working, and we can remove the back bed if you wanted more space in there. The kitchen is great, stone counters and a gas stove. We love to cook so there’s all the kitchen tools, appliances, and spices you could want (help yourselves to these while we’re away!). The front yard is totally yours and is a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning, there’s also a big courtyard with table and chairs in the back that’s shared with the basement (its rarely used by the downstairs folks, in my experience). Central air with A/C, you have your own thermostat. The air system for the apartment is completely self contained and does not share air with the rest of the house (which is great in the time of COVID). Coin laundry in the basement. Temporary on-street parking available through the city. Across the street from an elementary school, 1/2 the number of houses means great parking availability. Toronto has a great bikeshare system with a bike depot just down the street. We live on a lovely residential street in West Queen West which is one of the coolest areas in Toronto (Vogue named it one of the 15 trendiest neighbourhoods in the world!). You're surrounded by restaurants, bars, boutique shops, thriftstores, street art, art galleries, etc. in all directions. Close to two large parks Trinity Bellwoods and Dufferin Grove. Very close/easy transit to all of the tourist attractions downtown. Super transit accessible, 3-5 minute walk to main transit stops going in all directions, and also very bike transit friendly with biking routes connecting to trails, the waterfront, and going downtown nearby. Two grocery stores less than 5 minutes away as well. 30 minute transit, 20 minute bike to Kings College Circle at UofT. 30 minute transit, 20 minute bike to Toronto Metropolitan University. 35 minute drive, 1 hour transit, 1 hour 30 minute bike to York University.
