A really pretty and really interesting five-bedroom, two-bathroom detached midtown home backing onto Balsam Grove. That’s the most obvious angle. But 750 Portsmouth Avenue would also function marvelously as an investment property. Rent it as-is or create a self-contained one-bedroom in-law suite on the ground floor. A bus runs right past the door to St Lawrence College, and Queen’s University’s west campus. The math is impressive. There are lovely big windows here that overlook gardens big enough for tennis, and sliding doors out to a sprawling low deck. All of which is great, sure, but the most striking feature is perhaps the step-down principal bedroom on the second floor, with its floor-to-ceiling fireplace and a walk-in dressing room bigger than some apartments I’ve lived in. If it was mine I’d be using it as a family room so that we could all gather up there when the weather closes in, which it will soon enough, and make like we were lodged in the Adirondacks somewhere with no plans to ever leave home again.
