This home has been in the same family since the 1950's. It is considered priority 2 through the Ontario Heritage Act... which means it has significant exterior features to warrant their consideration and designation. The rounded windows and front entranceway are characteristic of Italianate architecture and the front metal fence would also be considered for designation to Heritage. When you renovate this old home you would need to maintain these features. Bringing back this home to its historic roots would be an exciting challenge for the right buyer and would allow you income as well!!!

This 2 storey was duplexed in 1955 by the present owners adding an upper apartment with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, bath and living area. It is separately heated, metered, and has its own water heater and private entrance.

The lower level has large principal rooms as well as a bedroom, kitchen, laundry area and back shed. There is also a part basement.

The last work or updates done to the home was completed in the 1970's so it needs major updating to meet standards and codes. It is being sold as is with no representations or warranties. The Main floor has 10 foot ceilings and there are many large sunny windows with storms.

The potential is definitely in the lovely huge lot as well as the location. It is steps to Thames trails and canoeing, close to lots of shops at Cherryhill Village Mall, a city bus on the street and a short hop down to the new Covent Market, the John Labatts Centre, fabulous restaurants and more!!! The university is close by too. Downtown workers or UWO folks would be happy to rent in this area. Being so close to both also opens up your target market for renters.

The huge half acre treed lot could be a gardeners paradise and this property would make an ideal Bed and Breakfast...with tons of parking and 3 of the rooms upstairs would be great bedrooms plus you would have a separate entrance into your own private quarters. The location would be appealing to out of town folks as they could park and walk!!!
