But it’s not the funkiest bathroom in the house:
Downstairs, there’s storage, a furnace room and this recording studio:
Built in 1910, this house was almost completely gutted and redone 18 months ago by the owner, who works in the entertainment industry. The owner was keen on avoiding the condo-within-a-home layout he found common in renovations nowadays, instead finding inspiration in the Arts and Crafts movement. The $1.3-million reno left only the fireplaces and three brick walls upstairs intact.
The 400-square-foot master bedroom has cavernous 16-foot ceilings. The basement studio is completely soundproofed, and could be used for recording or as a home theatre. The lease also includes yard maintenance and snow shovelling.
Possible deal breaker
Before he officially downsizes and moves out, the owner plans to occupy an adjoining one-bedroom studio at the back of the property. Not everyone may want their landlord living in their backyard.
