This property, built in 1885 and once a duplex, offers so many opportunities for a multitude of different projects.  Put on your creative hat and unlock the potential of 4603 De La Roche.  Here are a few examples of what can be done with this property, from easiest to more complicated:

 

SMALLER RENOVATION OF EXISTING BUILDING

This home could be a perfect size for a couple or small family. Currently there are 3 bedrooms, a renovated kitchen (marble countertops with glass tile backsplash), renovated bathroom (bear-claw tub with separate shower), powder room, wood floors, and a/c. You would only need to re-do the floor plan upstairs to put back the hallway to access each room properly.

 

Gardeners will love the backyard, which is very rare for the area!  The owner has planted a beautiful perennial garden with a wood deck area and a storage shed.  There’s plenty of space to put a hot tub or even a small pool (check with the city).  You could create an oasis back there!

 

BIG EXPANSION OF EXISTING BUILDING

Another option for this property is to expand the house both upwards and/or out into the garden. The opportunities here are endless, from a country charmer to a modern marvel. Build your dream home to start that next chapter! The potential of building a garage can really take this home to the next level.

 

CONDO PROJECT

The owner pursued the option of developing condos or rental apartments, like the neighbouring property has already done (next door has rental units), but life took a different turn and he’s no longer able to continue with the project. Plans are available for a 6-unit project (maximum number of units allowed) with four 2-storey condos and two single level. Of course, you could also build fewer condos for an even easier project.  The right developer can create a very profitable venture.

 

MISC. INFO

  • Baseboard electric heating
  • Wall-mounted a/c unit
  • Crawl space with dirt floor (hatch in kitchen)
  • Roof 2013
  • Permit parking in front

 

With an easily accessible lane at the back (many other properties have parking in the lane), it offers an opportunity to build a garage, carport, and/or exterior parking for up to 2 cars (permits required from the city and might not be obtainable-parking might be “at your own risk”).

 

Properties with such development potential are a rarity in this sought-after neighborhood, making this a truly unique opportunity.  Don’t let this one slip away! Embrace the allure of Plateau Mont Royal living and unlock the full potential of this remarkable property.
