About Roberta Ferrence

As a long time Faculty member at University of Toronto, I have welcomed guests to my home from all over the world for more than two decades.

Roberta Ferrence purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Roberta Ferrence chose Toronto

The Annex area is sought after by those who live in Toronto and those who visit this exciting city. Quiet and tree-lined streets close to all attractions and the university provide an excellent quality of life. Many parts of the city are walkable from my home, and good public transit is only a few steps away. My home is truly unique, a turn of the century gem fully restored with modern amentities.

What makes this apartment unique

We have restored the original plasterwork, wood panelling, inlaid floors, unique archways, original fireplaces, stained glass and leaded glass windows and the unique side porch and balconies.

Missing your workout? We offer a fully equipped home gym with treadmill, Lifecycle, Bosu ball, stability ball, free weights, a large TV and iPod dock.

Wonderful apartment in gorgeous historic home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights in June and were very pleased with everything about this accomodation. Our host was most welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and was even tailored to my husband's dietary needs! The apartment is new and of high quality. The house and furnishings and art work are amazing. The location is perfect for easy access by transit to everything in Toronto. Wonderful restaurants right in the neighborhood.

We would definitely stay here again when visiting Toronto.
