Rental of the week: 16 Filmic Lane

Most people hate the idea of spending over $2,500 on rent — the reasoning being that it just draws money away from future home/condo ownership — but in the absence of a down payment and growing square footage needs, townhouses like this one in Leslieville become quite attractive.

16 filmic lane torontoThe stacked design ensures that the apartment has a small footprint but lots of livable space — 1,610 square feet to be exact. Anyone who lives here is sure to be climbing the stairs regularly, but the pay off is slick pad that can accommodate a growing family or multiple roommates.

Case in point: the ample terrace that's adorned with a gas hookup for a barbecue. It's good for entertaining to be sure, but also for relaxing with a single companion. 

16 filmic lane torontoI suspect the rent's a bit high for a couple who work away from the home, but an interesting scenario is hinted at in the listing photos, which sees one of the bedrooms used as a well equipped office space. The rent is easier to stomach when a portion of it is a business expense.
