Asound investment in your future in Ottawa's famous, historic Byward Market, where for the next 100 years tenants will always want to live, come boom or bust economics. Whether you move into one unit and thank the tenant in the other unit for doubling the rate your equity grows, cosmetically renovate each unit over time to attract dramatically higher rents and super-charge your equity, or ride the current finances with two excellent, zero hassle, long term tenants as a tax shelter and future accelerator, you cannot miss when you acquire solid infrastructure in an evergreen location.
Infrastructure and features you won't find in every duplex downtown include: roof-top patio-ready torched-on membrane (2011) (yes! build a roof-top patio to chill with friends taking in the Market atmosphere on Summer nights!), copper water supply main (lead replaced 2006), new poly weeping tile (2003), 200 amp (& 100 per unit) electrical service (2002), high-efficiency natural gas boiler (2016). Sure, another duplex might have fancier counter tops... invest in fundamentals.
Need we say more? This classic brick duplex is located right in the heart of Ottawa's famous Byward Market. Permanently take the worry of finding great tenants right off the table.
Oversized Attached Single Garage
For you or your tenants to use, extra income for you if you like. However you slice it, a big garage with your Byward Market duplex? Are you kidding me? No we're not.
Back Yard Oasis
In the centre of the action sits your tenants' sweet and mellow back yard oasis. Truly exceptional for the area. For any downtown duplex. Better than most luxury downtown homes!
Porch, Balcony, Deck
Plenty of beverage sipping, book reading, breeze catching, bird or people watching attached outdoor vignettes to enjoy.
Sorry you missed it?
At any given moment there are between 25 and 50 duplexes for sale in the core of the City. Perhaps 3 or 4 of them have fundamentals approaching what this one had. If you're thinking about purchasing a duplex, either as a starter home with a built-in equity booster, or as a tidy addition to your investment property portfolio, I'd love to help you analyse and assess every one that hits the market until we find excellent value and solid infrastructure for you to build on.
