About this listing
Enjoy this large (1400 sq ft), quiet, architecturally unique, 2 storey, 2-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom apartment with a view of skyline, CN Tower. Enjoy jacuzzi bathtub & fireplace. Steps from local resto/bars, & Ossington subway station-10 min to downtown.
Our space is quiet, architecturally unique, open concept, in very close proximity to the TTC (public transit subway station). It has one small bedroom with a double bed and a HUGE bedroom with a queen bed and a living room-type space. It has a balcony with a beautiful view of the cityscape and the CN Tower. Many of the walls have been freshly painted (December 2015) and the carpet leading from the front door to the apartment's main floor has been replaced. We do live here, so the closets are quite full in most rooms except the spare bedroom (where they are empty). The couch on the second floor and its accompanying armchair have been recently recovered.
TV, Wifi, kitchen, towels, library of books, tranquility, balcony with table and chairs
Interaction with guests
I live in the apartment during the week, but tend to be away on weekends. I hope to meet you upon arrival before my departure. I am flexible with requests for during the week as I have alternate places to stay.
I love the variety of delectable ethnic restaurants, relaxed cafes, microbrewery pubs and bars. Here are a few favourites:
Pubs with good food, beer: Tall Boys, Rockwood, and another with a big wolf on the front window. There's also one west of Roxton (my street) with a pineapple out front. A bit $ and unsure if they have food, but they have good cocktails and chill ambiance. There is also The Roxton which is south of our (email hidden) and Roxton Rd. It has a blue triangle as a sign. I recommend the beet salad and the Ruben sandwich.
1) Thai Room is east of us on Bloor St.
2) Best Ethiopian in the city, but slooooow service (well worth it) called Nazareth. Order a meat and a veg platter between 4 people. Very inexpensive and deeeeelect!
3) Excellent Indian 2 blocks east on Bloor: Banjara and Madras Masala beside each other.
4) Keep walking east to an orange signed Korean restaurant on the corner one block east of Christie St.
5) Ebi Sushi is a few doors down from Saving Gigi (see below).
6) 24 hr McDonald's one block away and a better burger joint at the end of my street on Bloor St.
7) EggsSmart is across from Saving Gigi's. Very cheap eats, but not great food or service.
8) Boom!, is a great breakfast/brunch restaurant south of my apartment, south of Harbord St, slightly west of Roxton Rd (our street) on College St.
Cafes: Saving GiGi, which you can see from our apartment. Delicious, but SLOW service! Fuel is across from the subway station (Ossington). Dooney's Cafe just opened across the street from Saving GiGi. I will check it out soon!
Butcher: Gasparro's- EXCELLENT butcher on the corner of our street and Bloor St. Free run, free range meat.
LCBO (liquor store with some beer) is a 2 min walk away on Bloor St, slightly west of our street.
3 minute walk to the Ossington subway station on the Bloor-Danforth line (runs east-west). There is street parking available, but a permit is needed from the city to park overnight. You will most likely be ticketed if you park on the street after midnight without a permit. Uber is always ready as an alternative to taxis. Both are readily available on Bloor St.
Other things to note
I live above a young couple with a baby, so ask guests to be quiet after midnight. I also have quite a few stairs leading to our main floor and about ten to the third floor. This might be challenge for those with mobility issues.
I have neighbours on the 1st floor with a baby, so please keep the noise down after midnight. No smoking. Pets allowed, but must be cleaned up after (hair). Shoes off at the door, please. Avoid wearing high heels as it is very loud downstairs. No wet clothing, etc., on wood furniture, please! You will also need to purchase a parking permit to park overnight on the street.
