AN EAST-END DETACHED HOME IN THE 350S

$352 500
1759 REGINALD BART

This is the rarest of birds at the moment - an immaculate three bedroom 2.5 bath five-year-old detached home in Kingston’s east end that’s priced in the low 350s.

 

We really could just stop right there. Job done. I checked the area this morning and couldn’t find a single comp. But hold on. There’s plenty more. 

 

This very bright Caraco home of over 1500 s.f also boasts a great open floor plan, a main floor office and laundry, a master bedroom ensuite, a lower level rec room with wet bar and rough-in, a fenced yard, single garage, and a wonderful location not far from all the new stores. We don’t imagine it will last long. 

 

Hell, I sound a lot like a realtor all of a sudden, don’t I? My apologies. But you really do need the facts on this one.

 

Speaking of which, the realtor.ca listing is right here.

This is a part of the city that I don’t spend very much time in, by the way. I mean, I understand the pricing over here, and I show properties in the area a lot. I just don’t seem to travel here outside of work. But driving around yesterday I realized, and not for the first time, that it’s pretty up here, with intermittent views across the river towards downtown. And the third crossing, when it rises from the mists over the Cataraqui River, will change entirely the way the east connects to the rest of Kingston. 

 

I have mixed feelings about that bridge but I look forward to getting on the bike and riding across it with the kids. And there’s that new mall that sprung up overnight, with groceries and coffee and booze outlets in it. The schools are good too, and so is access to the 401. In the other direction you’ve got the army base and then on into The Thousand Islands. And you’re ten minutes from downtown. I’d say that’s a long list of positives.
