40 Dalton Road
One-Bedroom, Prime Annex, $1,600 per month (inclusive)
This attractively renovated apartment is on the ground floor facing Dalton Road, with direct access from the street. Although the apartment is arguably small (440 square feet) it has several redeeming features.
The property is located on a quiet, tree-lined street just 200 meters north of Bloor Street and 350 meters from the University/Spadina subway station. The University of Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum, Yorkville and Kensington Market are all within a fifteen-minute walk. (For more information about the neighbourhood follow this link).
