This spacious and bright basement is perfectly located on a quiet and cozy street just steps from public transport and two major highways in the historic Weston neighborhood. It was renovated last year and with brand new furniture.
Roomy, with good natural sunlight and it's own washroom, the basement looks and feels like a bachelor unit.
There are plenty of stores, schools and services within walking distance. Two important highways, the 400 and 401 are within 2 minutes of driving. The basement has a private 3 piece washroom. On the main floor are the shared kitchen and living room.
We will be sharing the kitchen and you can feel free to use the living room as well. I have an extra parking space in the back you can use too, parking is also free on the street. Feel free to use the internet too! For the kitchen, you have your own fridge, there is a Guinness branded fridge right by the basement entrance.
I work regular 9-5 hours during the weekdays, but I'm more than happy to show the city during the weekends or evenings. I have traveled extensively myself and lived in 4 different countries and I know how nice it is when you can have a local show you around or at least help you orient. With that said, I'm more than happy to let you do things on your own if you prefer no interaction. Do at least say hi if we bump into each other in the kitchen :)
I wouldn't really recommend it for tall people, the basement ceiling is 6', so anyone 6' and above will need to duck their heads. The house is not child proofed, I also wouldn't recommend it to couples with kids.
Please note when looking up the address there are two streets with the same name in the city. Use the postal code M9N3B4 to ensure you see the correct Rosemount Avenue, it will be very close to the Lawrence and Weston intersection.
No surprise. ..smoking is a no no.
Please leave your shoes in the foyer. I am really particular about the shoes, please do not walk with outside shoes in the house.
Please clean the plates and kitchen utensils after you in the kitchen and don't eat in the basement. The carpet is thick and hard to clean and invariably whenever a guest broke this rule they spilled food or drink on the carpet.
Just be nice :)
I've travelled extensively and lived in Romania, Canada, France and Hungary. I thouroughly enjoyed my experiences abroad, discovering new places and cultures I look forward to the opportunity both to travel again and to meet like-minded foreigners visiting Canada :)
Hobby wise, I've dipped my feet into quite a few things. I run, hike, rock-climb and snowboard. I try to take care of my body and go to the gym fairly regularly. I'm also fairly decent with a guitar and love riding my motorcycle in the summer. However I still have a geeky side to me and I love board games and computer games. I have been part of a D&D group at some point and I'm proud to still have my D20s.
I would describe myself as a fairly easy going guy that can get along with many types of people. I don't stress out easily, however I'm both decently clean and fairly organized and for living accommodations, I prefer like minded people.
Language wise I'm fairly decent in French and Spanish and I also can still speak some Hungarian from my time in Budapest, in addition to English and my native Romanian.
