The place

An Arts and Crafts–style family home, located about a block away from High Park.

The history

Many of the home’s original details remain, like the leaded glass windows, the tiled fireplaces and the oak panels in the dining room. The property is managed and designed by Nesty, a hosting and property management company, which filled the place with locally sourced furnishings like the Gus Modern couch in the living room, and the dining table from Of Things Past.

Here’s the entry. They don’t make staircases like this one anymore:

Major perks

Architecture nerds will appreciate that this home was designed by renowned Toronto architect Eden Smith, who is also responsible for Grace Church on the Hill and Upper Canada College’s preparatory school building.

Possible deal breaker

A long-term tenant lives in a separate basement apartment in the home. The presence of another person may turn off some short-term renters—though they’d have even less privacy at a hotel.
