One of the Forest City's most sought after family neighbourhoods. This home is walking
distance to Optimist Park sports fields, variety store and video rentals. Close by
you will find a pharmacy, restaurant, grocery store, flower shop, liquor store, fast food,
a library and all kinds of specialty shops including London's best mechanic.....Byron
Imagine being able to jog to London's premier greenspace.....Springbank Park. Consider spending
Sunday's strolling the Thames River and stopping at Byron's own coffee bar for a cup of
java, all within a few blocks of your new home.
A short drive will take you to Westmount.....London's only mall with underground parking
or the 100's of shops in the White Oaks mall area. You are located close to all the
amenities any family will need but far enough away from the hustle and bustle!
This 1 floor cozy cottage was one of Byron's first farmhouse's built by brother's who were
local stone masons. The attractive stone front makes it an area landmark and the huge parklike
lot qualifies it as a really rare find. The wood shake roof enhance the street
appeal as does the newer front door. The driveway has been widened and it is deep enough
to accommodate lots of parking. The treed rear yard has a cute shed with newer cedar shake
shingles and flooring. The yard is absolutely breathtaking in the summer with all the
greenery from the grass and trees. There is a tranquil patio area off the kitchen and
master bedroom so you can enjoy your own parklike yard over a b.b.q with friends or a
romantic late night drink with your loved one. This set up is also conductive to adding
a screened in porch or an addition to this bungalow. Some of the windows as well as the
terrace doors are newer.
Once you walk inside you will fall in love with the bright open space yet it still has
a sense of coziness. The hallway is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair and adds
to the feeling of space. The warm hardwood flooring throughout the main floor
adds to that "at home feeling". The living area offers open concept dining and
living plus the wood insert in the fireplace can heat the entire cottage if you wish to cut down on your
utility bills. This area is enhanced by a huge window and built in bookshelves. The
kitchen offers an eating bar, a pantry and good working area for meal preparation.
All 3 bedrooms are better than average size for a 1 floor in Byron and each has good
closet space and a large window too! The spacious master, with lovely terrace doors,
features a convenient 2 piece ensuite. Your 4 piece bath is oversized with room to build in
extra cupboards or closet space. You could even consider installing a jacuzzi. The
lower level has room for a laundry and storage area but is not large enough or high
enough to finish further. The laundry facilities could be moved up to the main floor
for even added convenience!!
So if you are looking for a unique historically significant home that gives you a
country/cottage atmosphere where you can retreat after a long day, this is definitely it!!
