Location in convenient between Greenbank and Woodroffe, neighborhood is suburbs like and overall pretty quiet.

Home is on a corner lot so the extra *windows are nice to have. Bedrooms are a touch small but with a nice large washroom; whereas master bedroom is quite large but with a tiny washroom.

Carpets are old and lots of patchwork was done over the years (seams everywhere) needs to be replaced. Basement is non existent for a townhome at that price range is sad. You have a furnace, hot water tank and small storage area that is too narrow for shelving.

Speaking of hot water tank and furnace: hot water tank rental is an extra 30$ a month. Furnace is underpowered since there's a unit build in the basement (seperate entrance) and will not heat/cool 3rd floor adequately.

Driveway is shared with basement tenant so you get garage (really tight fit) and 1.5 of a driveway directly behind garage.

Yard is an ok size. Be prepared for bylaw or management to harrass you about cutting the grass on city property (other side of hedge+fence) where bus stop is.

*Windows are cheap and will let alot of hot/cool air in/out with draft. Silverfish and house centipedes are present in the home but usually nocturnal and not everywhere (spot them every now and again)

Master bedroom faces busier Centerpointe so lots of vehicle traffic. In the winter: plows start at 5am to clear parking lot across the street (can get noisy with the reverse beeping and scraping plow on cement/curbs). During the summer: the occasional screaming, yelling outside on Centerpointe.

*** Utilities need to be in your name and then you must collect 25% from the basement tenant *** this is ridiculous as you are playing mini landlord/collector. Fortunately for us the tenant paid within 2weeks of asking.

Every month: Hydro $80-$100 / Gas $60-$80 (water tank rental $30)

Every 2 months: Water & Sewer $160-$210

Overall an awkward space for students (bedroom sizes uneven and splitting rent + utilities on top of collecting 25% from basement tenant). Also awkward for small families because there's no basement and the below tenant will pass through your yard to get to his vehicle in driveway.

terrible management, poor cheaply done maintenance. the neighbor is loud and aggressive, and frequent to knock on walls even with normal tv watching. the heating sky rockets for no reason. garage barely fits full sized sedan, and front driveway is two short for two cars
