Rental of the week: 384 Sunnyside Avenue

Former churches can make for some of the most stunning living spaces around. There's a handful of these adaptive re-use projects around Toronto worthy of gushing over, but it's rare to see units come up in a rental capacity.

With a sun room in one of the church's old towers, it has to be one of the most intriguing conversions of this kind around the city. Anyone who likes exposed wood beams will be taken with this one.
