House of the week: 64 Dovercourt Road
This property near West Queen West is an intriguing investment opportunity - particularly because it's not a condo. 64 Dovercourt Road has hit the market, and this beautifully renovated 1889 Victoria Rowhouse is a fresh take in a neighbourhood that's recently seen an influx of cookie-cutter condos.
Listed at just under $2 million, it's debatable if this spot is worth the hefty price-tag, but the three self-contained units that come along with it is the perfect opportunity for an investor, or someone looking for owner-occupancy in an area where you definitely won't need a car.
The duplex boasts clean lines and modern features, including hideaway appliance walls in two of three kitchens and fresh white subway tiled bathrooms to brighten up the window-less rooms (with the exception of the skylight in the third floor bathroom).
Attention to design detail is definitely a selling feature, with a gorgeous original fireplace feature on the main-floor and exposed brick walls and wooden beams throughout.
The two-storey unit on the second and third floors has a cozy kitchen and dining area, along with a beautiful sun-filled bedroom with exposed wooden ceiling beams and a window nook for a reading chair or small desk.
The walkout patios for both the main floor unit and second floor unit have enough room for a barbecue and generous seating area, and while the view may just be condos, it's still a cozy urban getaway.
While the third unit may be a basement, it certainly doesn't feel like a typical Toronto basement. The polished concrete floors, jungle-print wallpaper as a back-splash and exposed brick walls add unique depth and character to an otherwise dark space.
Someone that doesn't want a car and is looking for an investment or owner-occupancy opportunity.
