This unique property is for lovers of high Victorian style who also desire reliable additional income from separate rental units and/or an already operating airbnb business. Its first unique point is its size, with the two bedroom apartment alone comprising the floor area of a small house. Its second unique point is the property’s origin. It was designed, built and later multiplexed by one of the families who developed the Old East Village in 1893 and who lived in it until the 1950s. Remodeled with a builder’s eye and skills, the layout is spacious and sensible, retaining much of its original sense of grandeur. The third unique aspect of this property is its corner location, allowing for separate entrances to each rental unit, private decks and porches, and two driveways. Fourth among its unique offerings is the garden, which is planted with indigenous Carolinian trees and shrubs including Tulip tree, edible Hazelnut, Pear and Spice Bush. For people who care about sustainability, the infrastructure is already here including raised beds, potting shed, bike port, composting area, recycling area and mature food-bearing plants, shrubs and trees.
The character in this home is sure to impress.Stained-glass and leaded windows, built-in oak shelves and cabinets, artisanal tile, beamed ceilings, sturdy hardwood floors, oak pocket doors and trims, and 10 foot ceilings give this fourplex aristocratic charm.
Perfect for owner-occupy fourplex or multi-use airbnb. Income potential is massive. The currently owner-occupied one bedroom unit (Apt.2), two bedroom unit (Apt.1), and bachelor unit (Apt.4) can be vacant upon purchase for big airbnb income potential or market rent attached under documents on the listing. The building is code-compatible, inspected and licensed by the City of London. Snow removal is written into tenant’s leases so there is no cost to the owners. In exchange, tenants do not pay for their parking spots. Coin operated dryer in the basement brings in extra cash. Solar panels were installed on the roof, May 2017 through the provincial Microfit program with 10 year warranty. Yearly income for 2019 was $1320 – good for the environment and for your pocket!
Finally, this home is located on the edge of London’s Old East Village and benefits from its proximity to a designated historical heritage area without being limited by its renovation restrictions. Colours adorning the original woodwork are taken from an accurate historical palate of the Old East Village.
