Two professionals who love historic homes. Plus the best thing about this place is that it's newly-renovated, so you don’t have to suffer all the usual challenges of an old home.  

10 sylvan ave toronto Move On If

You need your own bathroom. Sharing a bathroom has its challenges and this bathroom is a bit on the small side. It doesn’t have a lot of storage space, so if you and your roommate are Sephora addicts you might have a hard time fitting everything in there.  10 sylvan ave toronto
