A one-bedroom suite in a former garage in the backyard of a Little Portugal home.
The owners bought the century-old house at the front of this property in 1980. About 10 years ago, they began gradually renovating the rear detached garage into a residence.

The kitchen is not enormous, but it has the essentials:
The bedroom is open to the main floor:
And it has a little office nook:
The suite is in the landlords’ backyard, so help with emergency repairs is never far away. Tenants get access to a slice of the back patio, with a screen so they can have some privacy.
Possible deal breaker
There’s no parking included (there used to be some in the garage, but, well). A car may not be necessary, though: the suite is steps away from Queen West.
