Rental of the week: 165 Bathurst Street
The term "studio apartment" tends to be abused on apartment listing sites. Pretty much any unit without a bedroom gets this description, when in fact a studio should infer ample space to establish a live/work setup.
This apartment near Queen and Bathurst doesn't suffer from misidentification: it's a sizeable warehouse space with separate kitchen area that could double as a residence and work studio thanks to its tall ceilings and open layout.
Of course, it doesn't come cheap. Both the location and the size contribute to a listing price that will surely drive away many people in the market for a studio space. Still, you get the sense that someone will be drawn in by the exposed wood ceilings, modern kitchen and loft sensibility.
Someone who has always wanted a loft space but can't afford to buy a condo or rent in a high-end building like the Candy Factory.
You need a bedroom. The living area in this apartment can easily accommodate a bed, couch and workspace, but there isn't any privacy here.
