The place

An eclectic beach house with exposed brick, industrial accents and three stand-alone units (not including the owner’s suite) to rent out.

The history

The home was built in 1920 and renovated top-to-bottom in 2007. The reno included the addition of a rooftop deck to the upstairs suite.

Here’s the top-floor unit, which is where the owner lives:

The kitchen has a wine cooler:

There’s a gas fireplace in the living room:

The solarium is attached to the living room:

There’s only one bedroom up here, but it’s pretty impressive:

Here’s the bathroom:

These stairs lead to a giant rooftop terrace:

There’s plenty of outdoor space for relaxing:

There’s also a hot tub:

And a sauna:

This is one of the main-level apartments:

There’s a one-bedroom unit and a studio on the main floor. This is the bedroom in the larger unit:

And here’s the two-bedroom basement apartment:

Big selling point

Aside from being a good investment property, the owner’s suite is completely decked out with vaulted timber ceilings, a gas fireplace and a 442-square-foot rooftop terrace. If the hot tub and infrared sauna aren’t enough, the house is directly across from the beach, so the new owners can easily pop over for a dip in the summertime.

Possible deal-breaker

The owner’s suite only has one bedroom, so guests will have to sleep on the couch.
