The history

When the sellers bought the house about four years ago, it was a two-storey corner store. With the help of Hudson Architecture, they renovated the place completely. There’s now a coffee shop, Sumach Espresso, on the ground floor, as well as a bachelor apartment. The top two floors are a loft-like owner’s suite.

The entrance to the owner’s suite has some fancy woodwork:

The fate

The buyers will take possession later this fall. They plan to keep renting to both the bachelor apartment’s current tenant and to the coffee shop, which is on a five year lease.

The sale

The agent aimed high with the list price, because the property has the capacity to generate serious rent. It attracted two offers after seven days. Both were competitive, but the sellers accepted the higher of the two, at about $10,000 under list price.

By the Numbers

• $2,090,000 • $9,212.05 in taxes (2017) • 3,509 square feet • 7 days on MLS • 5 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms
