The apartment is the lower level of our Victorian home in the heart of Riverdale. We completely renovated our home in 2010 - gutted right back to the exterior brick wall! Ceiling height is 7’, there are windows on two sides, and the space is inviting and comfortable. The apartment has heated cherry floors, pot lights, good natural light, a quiet, ductless air conditioner and brand new, full size washer and dryer.
With a separate and private entrance at the side, access is easy with your own code, no keys required. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped with IKEA cabinets, butcher block countertops, stainless steel appliances, as well as a coffee maker & grinder, microwave, toaster oven, pots, pans, dishes...
The sitting room has a television with cable and a built-in DVD player. The pull-out sofa has a queen size mattress.
The bedroom also has a queen size bed, with quality linens, and a full wall of closets. With a nice deep soaker tub and a rain shower the bathroom is sumptuous with a heated, porcelain floor. We provide towels, a hair dryer, an iron and a small table top ironing board.
