The Orleans is a 1-bedroom apartment in the basement of a detached family home.

The home is located in a mature, quiet Doncrest neighbourhood of the Town of Richmond Hill, North of Toronto.
The closest major intersection is Bayview and Highway 7.

There is a private side entrance, a shared laundry room, and a shared storage area.
This unit has a bedroom with a walk-in closet, a bathroom, and an open-concept living, dining, and kitchen space.
Most importantly, the unit has an egress window providing emergency escape.


There are stairs outside (6 steps) to access the side entrance door.
There are stairs inside (14 steps) to access the apartment.
This unit is not accessible by wheelchair and would also be difficult to access for people with reduced mobility (e.g. walker, cane).

The landlord will do his best to clear snow in a timely fashion.
However, if you require passage prior to him completing the job, you may be required to shovel:

  • the walkway between the driveway to the side entrance
  • the driveway to/from the street

At the corner of Hazelmere and Valleymede (within 50 meters), there is a bus stop for five different bus routes (YRT #82, 444, 445, 448, and 451).


The apartment includes one outside parking space in the driveway of the home.
The space is only suitable for a small car (4.5 meters/14.75 feet and shorter).
If you have a longer car or have guests, you will have to arrange for alternate parking, possibly with a neighbour.
Overnight and longer-than-3-hour parking in the street is prohibited. Please read the Town of Richmond Hill's parking bylaws.
