Rental of the week: somewhere on Carlyle Street
Okay, I know rent is expensive. Like, stupid expensive. So, if you find a studio for under $1,000 with utilities and internet included, it's like winning the lottery.
Well my dears, I won the lottery! But it's definitely not the jackpot… it's more like winning a raffle where the prize is an expired coupon.
This place is spread out over three floors, which for an apartment that's only 650 square feet, is ridiculous. I'm pretty sure there are treehouses that have less stairs and more square footage. But the listing (which has since been deleted) did say "unique," so I'll give them that.
On the bottom floor is the "kitchen." Kitchen is in quotation marks here because it technically has a fridge and a sink, but none of the other kitchen-y things like a stove, microwave, and so on.
There's a hot plate, but I don't know if it comes with the place or if you have to procure your own.
The "second floor" has squatter vibes with a mattress slumped against the wall.
But, if you wanted something more traditional in this space, such as a couch or a bed, I don't even know how you'd get furniture into this place. The stairs are so steep and narrow that you’re bound to have a Ross Geller "PIVOT!" moment.
The listing also read "Unique single attached unit with private entrance, kitchen and washroom close to Dundas and Bathurst streets."
And, while I want to say this is just a grammatical quirk and you don’t actually have to walk to the Tim Hortons at Dundas and Bathurst to use the bathroom, there are no pictures of a bathroom, so I can't be 100 per cent sure this place actually has one.
Finding creative ways to do your morning ablutions.
You're not willing to walk to Bathurst and Dundas everytime you need to pee.
