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.

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
