Built in 1905, this charming, 900 sq.ft., 2 story, 1 family, fully detached house sits on a 25 ft x 100 ft. lot.
This house is an R5B zone and has an approximate 2000 sq.ft. of additional buildable FAR (floor to area ratio).
This sun-drenched house with triple exposure is very sweet and in move in condition or one can build up and out and renovate to their taste! Offering a separate vestibule to greet your guests before you step into the quaintness of this bed & breakfast style charmer. The somewhat open concept living room, dining room and kitchen with wood floors throughout are partially separated by the oak staircase and an exposed brick wall which also adorns an original, currently non-working fireplace with beautifully ornate detail and mantel piece that simply warm this house with more character and appeal.
There are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor with original tin ceilings, wood floors and large closets. Open to the kitchen the wrought iron spiral staircase that brings you to the basement is consistent with the cool architectural appeal that flows throughout this unique charmer. This large, dry space with ample height to the ceilings could easily be finished to accommodate a great family room or home office or whatever extra space you want.
The surprisingly commanding stature this house exudes is accentuated by its 25 ft x 100 ft lot sitting on one of the most highly sought after quiet tree lined blocks in all of Windsor Terrace.
There is no curb cut for parking because there is a fire hydrant in front of the house and so the current owner, for more than 25 years, has always been able to pull their vehicle right up onto their property as the spacious frontage easily accommodate a full size SUV or vehicle without at all compromising the grounds.
With 20% down, which is approximately $230,000, at a 3 5/8% interest rate, that means it is $456 per hundred thousand that you are borrowing, and you may do better, your mortgage would be approximately $4,195 monthly and with your tax write off at the end of the year you will recoup a relatively significant amount of that monthly mortgage payment.
