As Toronto grapples with a housing crisis, one landlord has decided to divide a single house into 15 separate units.

The red brick Annex house, coined “The Grand Old Lady,” is located on 55 Madison Avenue, near Bloor Street and Spadina Avenue.

The three-storey property is currently for sale, listed for $5,395,000.

Real estate agent Les Wallace told CTV News Toronto that whoever buys it has the potential to pull in a net yearly income of $208,782.

Wallace said four of the units in the Annex house are one-bedroom suites, while the remaining 11 are studio apartments.

The detached Victorian-style house was first constructed in 1896, which is captured in the house’s semi circle arches and rusticated stone foundation, according to Architectural Conservancy Ontario.

The ACO lists Samuel Platt as the first owner of the house who served as a city councillor from 1845 to 1851.

The property listing details that eight of the units are recently renovated with photos displaying white paneled splash boards and new kitchen appliances in those spaces.

The 50 by 126 foot lot also includes a private driveway with a detached garage.
