The Story

Unique opportunity to own this solid brick duplex on a huge 60'x164' lot in the Civic Centre Heritage District just minutes from downtown! Built in 1900, this home retains it's original character with ornate decorative fascia, beautifully crafted eave brackets and a two level covered verandah reflective of a time gone by! Note the alleyway at the rear of the property. This very rare feature allows the property to have both front and rear parking access. An ideal setup for a multifamily property! This feature also poses the future possibility for a rear accessed detached garage or workshop similar to that of neighbouring properties. Both units are spacious with 2 or more bedrooms, updated bathrooms, separate entrances and individual basements for laundry and storage. This effective division between the two units makes it perfect for someone looking to live in one unit and let the rental income from the other pay down the mortgage. Just a short walk to downtown restaurants, shopping, the Kitchener market, Kitchener Public library and GO/LRT transit. The two units (up/down) are currently rented at $1250+hydro (#26 main floor) and $1400+hydro (#28 second floor). The main floor unit will be vacant as of April 30th.

The Lifestyle

Eastward is an older, but much-loved neighbourhood in the city of Kitchener not too far from the downtown core. This neighbourhood has changed a lot in the past decade, with lots of young families moving in. Homes in the area tend to be nearly 100 years old, but there are some 50-60s era bungalows on the eastern edge of this neighbourhood. This neighbourhood offers residents an old-world charm, with smaller lots to maintain the intimacy of the neighbourhood. [...]
