  • 2 baths
  • 2297 sqft
Searching for a fixer-upper that surpasses your expectations of “lipstick on a pig”? You found it!! This property is a nearly 2,300 sq ft Victorian home that shows its original character and potential in equal measure. Situated on a deep lot, this house is a standout build on the street, but needs a lot of love to restore its former glory. Inside is a sprawling layout featuring 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a Great Room that leads out to the treed-in backyard, and even a maid’s quarters — talk about 19th century!! Within walking distance from downtown, and close to the new hospital, LCBO, Tim Hortons, arena, and more. Comparably sized and aged detached properties sell in Markdale for $600,000+, but because of the home’s distressed state, an Investor can buy this conveniently located and spacious detached century at a hair over $400,000!!
