I was working in the laneway lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
It’s another graveyard smash!
By now you probably know we are VERY keen on seeing a laneway house built overlooking the majestic Prospect Cemetery. We think it would be spookin’ spectacular.
So, here we go. Here’s a newly-listed semi-detached house priced at under $900,000. AND it likely comes with the legal opportunity to add a brand new – and relatively large – additional detached laneway house on the very same lot, for less than $375,000.
Add the two together, the $899,000 current house purchase, and a brand new laneway house build that will cost under $375,000, and you have two houses for less than $1.275 million – or $637,000 each house.
Now, the laneway house at this location on Harvie Avenue could likely be as large as 1200 square feet over two floors…
…or even more with basement, but this will add to cost. Looking out over the graveyard, we think it’s perfect.
