Traditional touches make the exterior of this Victorian as pretty as a picture, including the inviting open front porch. Inside, soaring ceilings and dark hardwood floors create a look of casual elegance and easy living. A glass-enclosed vestibule leads to the open concept living/dining room, which features original stained glass windows.
The renovated family-sized kitchen is a chef's delight, with a large centre island which doubles as a breakfast bar. A unique wood ceiling, ceramic floor & backsplash complement the tasteful cabinets, adding warmth and grace to this large room and making it a gathering spot for friends and family. French doors lead conveniently to the rear perennial garden.
The master bedroom is large and airy, with two large windows and more original stained glass. It has been renovated to include wall-to-wall closets with custom doors and lighting, offering contemporary style and function. The tasteful decor and hardwood floors are repeated throughout the two other bedrooms on this floor.
Recently renovated, the bathroom boasts an extra large pedestal sink and cabinets. The third floor large loft space awaits finishing with endless possibilities.
The lower level is partially finished, with a recreation room for family or guest use (ready to be fully finished as it has been entirely waterproofed). At the rear, there is a charming flagstone patio and a large fully fenced yard.
