Just the Facts
About the Property
This charming Beach home is just waiting for its next family.
Top 10 Reasons we THIS HOUSE:
1.219 Balsam is located on one of the best tree-lined streets in the Beaches, just a short stroll to Balmy Beach, Kew Gardens and Lake Ontario.
2. There’s a newly renovated nanny suite or income apartment in the basement with a separate entrance that could bring in $850-900 a month in rental income. That’s like having your tenant pay $200K of your mortgage!
3. Your kids get to attend in-demand Balmy Beach Community School or St. Denis School. Balmy Beach had a Fraser Institute ranking of 8.3 in 2013/2014.
4.It has tons of charm and character: original hardwood floors, wainscotting, brick fireplace mantel and a quaint front porch.
5.We love the private treed backyard with a big deck, perfect for relaxing or entertaining.
6.The kitchen’s been beautifully renovated: white granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a gas range.
7. There’s plenty of street parking available on Balsam Avenue and it only costs $175 per year.
8. A pull-down ladder in the master bedroom leads to a secret third floor space. Reading room? Yoga and meditation room? Playroom? Fancy storage? You decide.
9.There’s all-new electrical and 200 amp service – no knob and tube here!
10.It’s the whole deal: You get to live in the Beaches for under $1 million. Your kids get to go to one of the best schools in the city. A basement tenant helps pay your mortgage. Does it get better than that?
