The history

The house was built in 1913 and hadn’t been updated in years when the current owner, a senior policy analyst, bought it in 2013. She finished renovating in August. She’s looking to rent out the bottom two floors by November 13, for a minimum one-year lease.

Major perks

The recent renovations weren’t just cosmetic: the owner also updated all the plumbing in the home and soundproofed the floor between the upper and lower units. So, no temperamental faucets, and no worrying about annoying the neighbours when you crank up the volume on Game of Thrones.

Possible deal breaker

The owner lives upstairs and shares the detached double garage. But at least whoever rents this place will have no trouble getting their landlord’s attention when something needs fixing.
