1. LOT INFO

- Lot: 33x124.5 feet
- Interior finished floor area: 2,370 square feet

2. HOUSE INFO

The well-maintained house has 2 self-contained suites (like a back-to-back duplex):

- The front/Main house: street level; facing Fleming Street (East);
- The Extension: toward the back of the lot, facing the back lane (West).

The lot is a slope, with the main house built on top and the Extension built lower. Therefore, both suites have separate roofs (it’s NOT the common main floor/basement structure).
The roof of the Extension could be seen from the dining area and master bedroom of the main house. Also, the Extension is so high that roofs of other houses in the neighborhood could be seen from its living room and master bed room. (Please view photos from the links below).

5. OUR NOTES

This property is perfect:
- as an investment. It is low maintenance. Professional and long-term tenanting is easy ($2,500.00 NET per month - tenants paying their own bills).
- as a residence. Owner could comfortably occupy one suite, and still have significant rental income ($1,200 to $1,300 per month) as a mortgage helper.

We are not in a hurry to sell the house. We are not looking for a quick sale. Therefore, please do not contact us if you'd expect us to significantly lower the price.
Please visit the area to see if it'd be a good fit for you. Please email us (with your phone number) only if you are truly serious. We'll contact you shortly.
Please do not disturb our tenants.

6. PRICE

$699,900.00

Thank you very much.
