The third level features a powder room/office space and two more bedrooms. As if this wasn't enough, the basement offers an additional bedroom, a kitchenette, laundry room, utility room and storage. First time to market, owner occupied for over 40 years - such incredible potential within walking distance to Dalhousie University, Hospitals, the Halifax Commons and the amenities of downtown and Quinpool Road.
