The history

This place dates back to the 1900s, when it was used as a coach house. The current owner, who lives next door, bought the property in 1981. He began a gradual remodel in 2005, which he finally finished in December. The curtains, heating, lights, and ceiling fans are all connected to a smartphone-controlled home automation system.

Major perk

The apartment is just a two-minute walk away from Queen West—but it’s nestled on a quiet, leafy side street, so tenants will be insulated from noise and foot traffic.

Possible deal breaker

With its polished stone floors and grey-and-white colour scheme, the unit’s interior may leave some renters longing for a bit of colour.

By the numbers

• $2,750 per month (includes utilities) • 580 square feet • 1 bedroom • 1 bathroom • 1 back deck
