If you can’t stomach the idea of living in Jan Harder’s Barrhaven or Allan Hubley’s Kanata why not scoop up a bargain in Bill Teron’s Lynwood Village?
Maybe this place? It’s been renovated and updated from top to bottom and backs onto Lynwood Park – from the backyard you can hear the thwack! of tennis balls at the snooty semi-private tennis club and the thunk! of pucks slapping the boards on the poorly-maintained (thanks to LVCA bungling) outdoor rinks.
front lawn “Paradise Patio” is an intriguing alternative to raising crops for the grubs.
Some would drool over this kitchen.
This place on Virgil has also been completely renovated and is ready to be flipped.
Can you see yourself sitting here? More importantly, can you see yourself making the mortgage payments?
The kitchen’s not as nice as mine, but I’ve seen worse.
Neither house is perfect – for example, the one on Longwood still has an oil furnace and the Virgil place doesn’t have a garage. Care to guess how much you’ll have to shell out to own one of these beauties?
12 Longwood Ave. is for sale at $422,900 and 31 Virgil Rd. will cost you $419,000 if you pay the asking price.
The fun is about to begin in front of the Brew Table.
Expanding the intersection will line a lot of pockets, with only a few crumbs for local residents, like a sidewalk on the west side of Moodie – you can see by the “desire lines” that it will be useful.
A sidewalk in front of Canadian Tire and McDonald’s is also a good thing, but is it really smart to rip up all the existing sidewalks on Moodie and Robertson and replace them with new ones just to enrich Rick’s buddies?
These pedestrians gave thumbs/paws up to the new sidewalks but think that the rest of the boondoggle stinks. The chihuahua growled and bared his teeth when I mentioned our councillor’s name.
Rick’s trying to sell the $3M project as bike/pedestrian-friendly – what a crock!
