This is a large two floor apartment (second and third floor) in a neighborhood of traditional homes. The second floor has a kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, and a study which can also serve as a third bedroom. There are two large bedrooms up the stairs on the third floor. These are very quiet and you cannot hear the TV in the living room, but you do have to go down the stairs to use the bathroom at night. You may hear Raccoons visiting the neighborhood at night, otherwise very quiet. No traffic noise.
The apartment feels spacious, and there is a private porch off the living room. There are two other apartments in the building, on the first floor, and a basement apartment, but we never heard anything during our visit. There is parking for three cars in the back, one space for each apartment.
The apartment is located on a quiet street yet is within easy walking distance of a great Loblaws grocery store on Dundas Street (try their cherry and apple fruit pies - not too sweet, fruit is first ingredient). You are also close to a subway stop on Bloor Street. A large park (High Park) is also nearby. Many ethnic restaurants are nearby. After we rented this apartment the owner emailed us two files, one giving detailed information about the apartment, and the second a long list of places to eat, stores of various types to shop in, and other attractions in the area. Very helpful.
The apartment is very clean, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, the TV is a large flat screen model with cable service, and the WiFi worked well. The owner lives offsite but is attentive and available by phone and in person if you have questions. We enjoyed our time in Toronto and found this rental to be just what we were looking for during our visit.
