Want to be my neighbour? Two houses are available atm on our street, one for purchase and one for lease.
154 Ellerslie Ave was just listed yesterday or so. List price is $1.249 million. This is the same list price that 221 and 223 went for this time last year, and you can compare that to 201 which was listed at $1.4million this past spring (it has a much deeper lot on the south side of the street (or is this one the few deep lots that goes beside Abbotsford Park?)). All I know about this location is the previous occupants were smokers, and across the street at 153 Ellerslie they were planning to demolish and build a jumbo giant super-sized place this past summer but that didn’t happen (but expect construction of some sort at that location soon™).
176 Ellerslie Ave is for lease for $3000/month. Initially the sign put up was ‘For Lease’, then switched to ‘For Sale’ two minutes later, and then the next day corrected again to ‘For Lease’. The listing agent, Stephen McShane happens to live across the street (and has for 14 years or so) from this listing so he should be able to answer lots of your questions about the neighbourhood.
I was going to include some details about past purchases of these properties for you, but the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation seems to have discontinued their service (as of Sept 11) and I won’t have access to their new AboutMyProperty until the beginning of November.
Want a pop-culture view of the street? Read Robert J. Sawyer’s Calculating God novel, as the main character lives here too.
Thoughts on whether this post is a bit to ‘creepy’ for the neighbourhood?
