Situated in the south end of St Thomas 20 minutes from London and 25% lower in price!!!
Located on a mature tree lined avenue of single family homes with terrific neighbours, plus close to city bus, park, schools, new Algoma University and shopping.
This lovely red brick 2 and a half storey home is the nicest one on the street! A centre hall plan, it offers an inviting 28 foot long covered front verandah for those relaxing Sunday afternoons, lovely professional landscaping both front and back and a historic slate roof.
The backyard boasts a cozy covered back porch, an extra parking pad and a perennial garden to die for!! Oh yes, wait till you see the balcony off one of the 4 bedrooms on the 2nd level. All totaled there are 4 different outside areas for you and your family to enjoy!
No need to worry about parking.There is plenty for everyone, including your guests, in the long private paved driveway. Plus there is an extra parking pad at back that also substitutes as a patio area for bbq season. The attractive double garage has new shingles and hydro so it makes a terrific workshop.
This all brick home offers low maintenance with newer soffits and fascia, a rebuilt balcony and rebuilt lower porch too. The windows all have storms as do the front, side and back doors. The roof is slate which not only offers worry free replacement but adds to the lovely curb appeal.
The historical features in this home include stained glass in almost every window, high baseboards and ceilings; all complimented by original trim, woodwork, and pocket door.
You will love the original chandelier in the dining room, the functional built in china cabinet in the kitchen, the built in linen closet on the second level and the built in antique tool cupboard in the lower level.
It's a centre hall plan, so it's wider than most homes; thus offering a gracious curb appeal. You will benefit from a formal living room and den as well as a dining room and kitchen on the main floor. The kitchen cupboards have been updated and there is room for two to enjoy their morning coffee in this bright sunny space. It's easily accessible to the comfortable rear porch and backyard for summer entertaining. The long main floor hallway leads to a central foyer with a closet for guest coats and access to the 2nd floor with its beautiful all wood staircase.
Upstairs are 4 generous bedrooms, ample closet space and a large updated family bath with original medicine cabinetry and a lovely stained glass window, which is my favourite one of the many this home boasts. One of the bedrooms enjoys a private balcony that's perfect for late nite cocktails and conversation.
The 3rd level loft is finished and has been used for everything from a bedroom, storage area, hobby and play room to a family room. You choose...there's plenty of room and 2 sets of windows for a great view and lots of light. There is also a good storage area here or use it to show off your collectibles.
The lower level was rented out at one time, offering a kitchen and bathroom and 2 finished rooms. There is still ample room left for the laundry area, storage, the old fashioned fruit cellar and workshop area with workbench and built in tool cupboard.
The owners have updated the wiring and electrical panel and there is an economical gas boiler system. The entire house has been repainted and decorated with a professional and neutral flair to suit any buyer's furnishings. Most of the light fixtures have been replaced and the exposed hardwood was refinished also. Plus there is hardwood under the carpeting and vinyl flooring in the dining room and foyer.
The kitchen and bathroom cabinetry has been updated, painted and new hardware added to bring it up to today's standards. All 4 appliances stay to get you off to a good start. There is nothing left to do except move in and unpack your things in your new spacious home!.
