Rental of the week: 85 Silver Birch Avenue

Toronto's rental market might be inflated with overpriced condo units these days, but if you look long enough, you'll still find spaces in solid old apartment buildings—you know, the kind with real wood floors and radiators.

This one-bedroom apartment at 85 Silver Birch Avenue is a lovely, light-filled space with loads of potential. It's also a two minute walk to the beach, which might be its primary selling point.

From an amenities standpoint, the building is pretty standard. There's on-site laundry and parking, both of which are nice. The kitchen won't dazzle any aspiring chefs, but it's got everything you need.

You need to be downtown. The Beaches is an amazing neighbourhood, but if you work in the Financial District, you're going to spend some time commuting on the 501.
