Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: As a long time Faculty member at University of Toronto, I have welcomed guests to my home from all over the world for more than two decades.

Why the Owner Chose Palmerston - Little Italy, Toronto, ON, Canada:
The Annex area is sought after by those who live in Toronto and those who visit this exciting city. Quiet and tree-lined streets close to all attractions and the university provide an excellent quality of life. Many parts of the city are walkable from my home, and good public transit is only a few steps away. My home is truly unique, a turn of the century gem fully restored with modern amentities.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
We have restored the original plasterwork, wood panelling, inlaid floors, unique archways, original fireplaces, stained glass and leaded glass windows and the unique side porch and balconies. Missing your workout? We offer a fully equipped home gym with treadmill, Lifecycle, Bosu ball, stability ball, free weights, a large TV and iPod dock.
