The history

The owner, an account executive at Bell Media, bought the 160-year-old house in 2015. He’s spent the past two years tearing down walls, replacing the flooring and adding a brand-new kitchen. His mother, an interior designer, helped with the finishing touches.

Major perks

Guests basically get it all: the charm of a Victorian and the modern touches of a hotel, plus the perks of downtown living.

Possible deal breaker

Hopefully the upstairs neighbour doesn’t enjoy dancing around in heels.

By the numbers

• 1,300 square feet • $199 per night • 5 guests • 2 bedrooms • 2 parking spots • 2 bathrooms • 1 deck
