The history

The home was built at the turn of the century, originally as a “warm bed house,” in which migrant workers constructing the brick houses on Brunswick Avenue would sleep between shifts. The current owner, a yoga teacher, has been living here with her daughter for 23 years. They call it the “gnome home”. A previous owner in the 1980s built a rear addition.

Inside, the front door opens directly onto the living room:

Major perks

With rustic touches and loft space, the place is a little bit like camping in the city.

Possible deal breaker

If you’re searching for “luxury accommodation,” this isn’t it.
