327 markham street toronto

Rental of the week: 327 Markham Street

Well, I can't say this place doesn't have a kitchen. It's almost all I can see. Forget the bathroom or rest of the place, this studio is 99 per cent kitchen cupboards. Look at them all! 

But, it's a good thing this place has 1,000 cupboards, because there's literally no other storage. There is no closet or even cubby under the stairs for you to put a suitcase or a coat. 

327 markham street torontoI always thought that thing about people storing their shoes in ovens à la Carrie Bradshaw was ridiculous, but in this apartment, that might be where you'd have to put them.

And is that masking tape holding them together at the bottom!? Wow...

The only thing it's missing is windows, or at least windows that let light in. The only window I could spot has been covered by a janky blind.  

But, my favourite thing about the apartment is the listing, which describes the unit as an "open concept kitchen, living and sleeping area." No kidding; like a studio could be anything else. 327 markham street toronto
