Looks can be deceiving!
From the outside, this surprising home looks like a bungalow, but once you get inside, it’s another story!
Located on a quiet crescent in the mature Civic Hospital neighbourhood, this gem of a property is the largest in the neighbourhood and backs mainly onto a well-treed path leading to Fairmont Park. This home boasts a spacious back-split with a combined five living levels and about 4,000 square feet for maximum comfort, privacy and space that’s perfect for growing or multi-generational families, those working from home and those who want the benefits of a beautifully landscaped and private outdoor living space in the middle of the city.
Outside, this well-maintained property is fully landscaped with exquisite outdoor living spaces in the very private backyard, mature trees and plenty of room to entertain or play (the lot is about 100 by 160 feet, almost 15,000 square feet). The entire lawn and gardens have a Hunter Hydra-Wise smart irrigation system that can be programmed from your phone.
Inside, the roomy foyer opens to main-floor living areas on both the right and left that are large and flexible, allowing the dining room to be located on either side. Unusually these days, the custom kitchen, which is big enough to encourage family gatherings or entertaining, overlooks the street! It features an oversized island, high-end appliances, a gas stove and heated floors.
Up one level is the master suite, with a five-piece ensuite that includes a roomy walk-in shower and heated floors. Also on this level is a full bathroom and a second bedroom that’s perfect as a home office or for keeping little ones close by. Two more bedrooms and a powder room are located up one more level, providing separation and privacy between the bedrooms.
Downstairs, meanwhile, is a rec room with the second of three fireplaces and a walk-out to the patio for outdoor dining. Also on this level is the bright laundry room, a full bathroom and a fifth bedroom. One level lower there is a bright home gym, a second rec room and a spacious furnace room with ample storage.
For a family that needs space to spread out both indoors and out, this home has it in spades. There are five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, hardwood throughout (luxury vinyl plank flooring in the basement) and so many places to live, work and play to make lockdowns a breeze.
This kind of home and property is difficult to find in the middle of the city, where it’s close to everything — the Civic Hospital, Little Italy, Hintonburg & Wellington West, the Experimental Farm, Dow’s Lake and the LRT— all are within walking distance. There are also a number of elementary and high schools that fall within the catchment area to choose from.Additional Property Information
