It Happened to Me Toronto (a.k.a. Accordion City)

Three Bedroom, Two Bath Downtown Toronto House Apartment — Available This Summer!

What with the departure of my housemate Paul for Europe for the summer,

my housemate Rob getting married to his girlfriend Leslie in October,

and me and Wendy getting hitched in September, the time has come for

all of us to seek new places to live. What that means is that my house,

71 Sullivan Street, Suite 1 — a stone’s throw from Queen and Spadina,

Chinatown, the AGO and loads of nightlife — is going to be available

this summer. Consider this blog entry the first announcement, with

details to follow.

Among its features, which I’ll go into detail in a later entry:

  • Lower half of historic brick house — 1st floor and basement
  • Three bedrooms — 2 decent-sized, one small
  • 2 full bathrooms with full tub/shower
  • Washer and dryer
  • Kitchen has microwave, oven, stove, dishwasher, fume hood
  • Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms
  • Back patio leading to garage
  • The damned coolest house on the block

Here are some photos of the place, taken in 2003:

Rent is $2100 a month. My housemates and I currently split in this fashion:

  • Bedroom on main floor (features south-facing glass wall): $835
  • Bedroom in basement (largest, 2 huge closets, built-in-shelf area): $725
  • Small bedroom in basement: $525

You pay for electricity and gas, water is currently covered by the landlords.

The expected date for this place to become available is July 15th.
