A new laneway home has just hit Toronto’s rental market but it’ll cost you $5,500 per month to live in it.
Property owners of a three-bedroom detached house sitting behind the row of Grace Street homes across from Bickford Park are looking for new tenants.
Facing directly away from the park, 5-435 Grace St. sits on a piece of land that’s just under 3,000 square feet.
One of the benefits of living in a laneway is that the facade of your home can look like anything you want it to without the neighbours complaining.
In this case, 5-435 Grace St., which was developed by Green Street Flats and designed by Craig Race Architecture, stays in keeping with alleyway aesthetics by being completely covered in a mural by Toronto artist Chris Perez, which was finished in December.
The home’s interior is a sleeker vibe, with reclaimed wood and concrete floor details.
A glassy staircase leading upstairs from the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops.
One washroom (of three) does sport some fun plant print wallpaper.
All this, plus – as the property’s listing on Realtor.ca boasts – “blazing fast internet.” Couple that with a 30-second walk to Bickford Park and you have an alleyway sanctuary fit for today’s WFH era.
