How do you build a house in a Northwood neighborhood that’s not the most desirable place to live?
It’s easy to do so, and even easier to do it with a $1.4 million basement suite.
The $1,400,000 Northwood apartment complex, known as the SteepleChase apartments, has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three large bedrooms.
The two-story apartment building sits on about 1.6 acres and features two floors of parking, four bedrooms and four baths, according to a listing on real estate website Realtor.com.
The listing shows a garage with a garage door, and the unit is covered in a stainless steel door and glass.
It has a balcony and a living room that seats 12 people, according the listing.
