Arts & Crafts Home in Upscale Cabbagetown

This is a lovely historically designated Arts and Crafts style home, circa 1913 in the safe upscale neighbourhood of Cabbagetown located in the heart of Toronto, which itself was recently ranked by the Economist (2015) as best city in the world to live. This vacation rental includes two floors of absolute privacy with a separate entrance, approx. 1350 square feet (not including outdoor deck and private walled courtyard) for your exclusive use.

This fully private and furnished self-catering unit is a perfect alternative for vacationers or business travelers who appreciate a peaceful hideaway in an atmosphere of culture and history; in fact you wouldn't know you were in the middle of Canada’s largest city! This home provides what a hotel room cannot, space for friends and family traveling together to enjoy a beautiful common space to relax and dine in an affordable way.

The area is perfect for architecture buffs (the New York Times described it as the largest enclave of restored Victorian homes in North America) and this century home on a quiet, beautiful tree-lined street features an old-fashioned front porch shaded by wisteria and a gingko tree ( Frank Lloyd Wright’s favourite combination). The gardens are designed with authentic arts and crafts principles inspired by British garden designer Gertrude Jekyll.

The rental space includes a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel frig and dishwasher, a microwave, a gas stove and wall oven. There are two bedrooms one with a queen size mattress, the other double, and a modern bathroom with a shower, marble vanity and deep soaker tub. Many original features are intact such as Georgia pine floors, high baseboards, historic mouldings, a pocket door and a wood burning fireplace in a spacious and comfortable living room and separate dining room. There are beautiful botanical dishes everything you need to create gourmet meals.The property owner is a fine artist whose original paintings you will find throughout the apartment; in fact you may find yourself feeling you are staying in an art gallery!

You can walk most everywhere, a car is unnecessary but if you come by car or need one, parking is available at a Green P lot just a few steps away which also has Car2Go and Autoshare rentals. There are streetcar and bus routes just around the corner and within a few short blocks you will find every amenity you will need for a comfortable stay: specialty coffee shops (Starbucks at the corner), gourmet delis, the best pain chocolats (Daniel et Daniel) and ginger scones (the Scullery) in Toronto. There are award-winning restaurants (F’Amelia and the House on Parliament), liquor and beer stores, No Frills and organic grocery stores, a yoga studio, an indoor swimming complex, and a seasonal outdoor organic market and a few rare breeds at Riverdale Farm just a few blocks away. You can explore the Don Valley trails at the end of the street for long hikes and bike rides (city rental bikes are available close by) and the historical Distillery District with numerous restaurants and art galleries is a 10 minute walk.

It’s a quick transit or cab ride to the Eaton Centre, the Phoenix Concert Theatre, Massey Hall, the financial district, the high end shops of Yorkville, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the University of Toronto, Ryerson and George Brown College, world class hospitals, Queen’s Park, theatre, ballet, opera, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), St. Lawrence and Kensington Markets, Pride, the trendy Queen Street shops, the Cabbagetown Arts Festival and Tour of Homes, the Toronto waterfront, CN Tower, Air Canada Centre, Rogers Skydome and the new Ripley’s Aquarium. The Pan Am Games will be here in July so hail a taxi on Carlton or Parliament Streets and begin exploring.

The owner will greet you upon arrival and be ready with suggestions for whatever you may require to make your stay a memorable one. Your adventure awaits!
