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.

The space

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!

Guest access

There's a front door or, if you prefer, you can enter/leave through back through the garage.

Interaction with guests

We'll be living together so it's our hope to have pleasant interactions!

Other things to note

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.
