Ophir is a three-bedroom cottage with a central location and loads of potential.

The 85-year-old traditional Bermuda cottage home needs quite a bit of TLC, but is structurally sound, painted and clean inside, and has space at the rear to develop and expand.

Located on the outskirts of the City of Hamilton, at 11 Euclid Avenue, the cottage is listed with Peter Lever of Wigwam Real Estate for $725,000, reduced from $795,000, and offers are encouraged.

Euclid Avenue is an established community and is a one-way street running from Woodlands Road to St John’s Church.

You could walk to a number of schools in the area including Berkeley and Saltus, and of course, you could walk to work as well.

The house, on a 0.115-acre lot, is currently vacant.

The large garden in the back is fenced in, with an old stable and sheds that are plumbed for laundry facilities.

A side driveway leads to the back yard, where there is a huge avocado tree, palms and and an historic old nut tree for summer shade.

In the front of the house are flower beds and rose bushes bordering the patio.

The wide 26’ by 6’ Bermuda porch also lends itself to being walled in to expand the home.

The cottage is 920 square feet in total area but the rooms are very adapatable to being reconfigured into larger spaces, to make a large one-bedroom apartment.

It is zoned Residential 1 for development purposes.

There are two bedrooms on either side as you walk in with high ceilings. The entire house has hardwood floors, though they are in need of some TLC.

There is a living room, working fireplace and small, but open kitchen, and a third bedroom. All bedrooms have closets.

The small bathroom in the rear of the home will need major upgrading.

The roof is said to be a great condition and the exterior walls were worked on a year ago.

Land tax on the property is just $171.60 a year.
