33 Mountain Park Ave, Hamilton, ON c.1952

Hot on the heels of 69 Mountain Park Avenue comes number 33.

Both are perched on the edge of the escarpment with jaw dropping views of the city, the harbour and beyond. Also there is only $150,000 difference between their asking prices but the comparison gap is much wider than that. That being said, each has their own appeal.

In my opinion, the views and the actual street name are the only thing these two charming homes in common. #33 is a circa 1952 fixer-upper priced at $1,100,000, and #69 is a circa 1905 complete remodel priced at $1,250,000. The stats are below along with what I like about each. The choice is yours (and ultimately the market's).
