119-121 Long's Hill, St. John's, NL

I just finished uploading this Commercial/Residential for sale, 119-121 Long's Hill, St. John's, NL

COMMERCIAL AREA The commercial main floor of this property is 1150 sq. ft. and currently has a 3 year lease in place. It was completely renovated in June 2004 with laminate flooring, a new electrical system, lots of track lighting, fresh paint and lots of slat wall for product display. There are three small rooms which can be used as offices, and a large two-piece bathroom. The main floor is wheelchair accessible. The outside advertising canopy can be easily re-lettered for future tenants. The basement is 1150 sq. ft. with a concrete foundation and sis divided into two areas - the newer with a concrete floor & heaters, and is a great dry storage area. RESIDENTIAL AREA Floors 2 & 3 is the residential portion of this property and consists of 580 sq. ft. on each of the two floors, also completely renovated in the spring of 2004. There is currently a 1 year lease in place. There are all new windows and clapboard on the front of the building. The living room has double windows with heritage ledges and trims, two archways to main hall and kitchen, crown mouldings and wide baseboards, original working fireplace with liner and old-fashioned mantle, and gleaming new hardwood floors. The front area of the wide hallway can accommodate a reading area with a great view of street activity, and also has hardwood floors. The carpeted staircase has wrought-iron railing for an open concept. A 5-piece bathroom with updated fixtures, new plumbing, vinyl flooring, and track lighting was also updated in 2004. There is an eat-in kitchen with a built-in dishwasher, pantry, laundry closet, an over-the-range microwave-range-hood, vinyl flooring, and refurbished cupboards with wrought-iron hardware. Very bright and appealing. The third floor large hallway has hardwood flooring, crown moulding, and wide baseboards, and can be used as a reading area with bookshelves and has a large window with southern exposure overlooking the harbour. The opposite end of the hallway has a linen closet. A french door leads into the large main bedroom, which has a walk-in closet complete with built-in shelving. Double windows make this room very bright. This room also has heritage trims, crown mouldings, wide baseboards and hardwood flooring. The second bedroom also has a french door, a large window overlooking the harbour, two closets, crown mouldings, wide baseboards, track lighting and berber carpet. A very warm, bright and friendly home which has been tastefully decorated with heritage colours is a very pleasant living space. All amenities are close at hand: walking distance to downtown, The Rooms, art galleries, and other high-end retail businesses, schools, churches, hospitals, and newly constructed condominiums. This is a fast growing section of downtown St. John's and is now included in the heritage area of the city. A MUST SEE!!
