Neighbourhood: Old South
Agent:Diane Gordon, Ainsley Gordon, London Living Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
A Old South character duplex on a large corner lot.
From the outside, this property looks like a quintessential Wortley Village home, with a large corner lot with a huge overhanging tree. Inside, it’s a duplex that’s perfect for an owner-occupied rental or an income property.
The main-floor unit is a two-bedroom that features hardwood flooring throughout, a cozy living room with a fireplace and a dining room filled with natural light through the large bay windows. The eat-in kitchen is spacious, has lots of room for a central table or kitchen cart and comes with plenty of storage and shelving space. The main bedroom has a doorway to the backyard, ample closet space and rich, wooden flooring and accents.
The upstairs unit, a three-bedroom, also comes with a fireplace and a naturally well-lit front room. It features more of a galley-style kitchen with plenty of cabinet storage and is attached to a dedicated dining room. At the back of this unit there’s a unique sunroom-style living room with windows on three walls and a view looking out at the neighbourhood. There are three cozy bedrooms on this floor, one of which could easily be used as a small home office or studio.
Both units feature small but functional bathrooms, both with shower-tub combinations and pedestal sinks. The property is an ideal arrangement for someone looking to subsidize the cost of their mortgage with an income unit, or for someone looking to rent out both units. But, if you like the the look of the place all for yourself, the listing indicates that it can be easily converted into a single-family home as well.
