Inner-City Calgary Bungalow for $625,000
Welcome home to Mount Pleasant. This character home has been opened up but retains the charm of the 1929 build. There have been numerous upgrades to the home and all the major projects have been done. As you enter the foyer, you'll be greeted by engineered hickory hardwood, the airy, open concept living area, and the dining room addition that was completed with all permits. The gourmet kitchen is ready for any chef with a gas oven with a broiler drawer, granite countertops with an under-mount sink, full-height cabinets, a french door fridge with interior water and ice, pantry, USB plugs, soft-close drawers, a cookbook shelf, and for those shorties out there - a dedicated space for the step stool. The lights are layered so you can stick to under cabinet lighting in the evening or make it bright for baking. The breakfast bar can fit at least 3 stools and there is a built-in wine rack facing the living room. The living room has overhead lighting and a decorative electric fireplace that stays with the home. The dining room has in-floor heat and lots of windows that face the landscaped backyard and has a closet for when you come in from the single detached garage. On the main level, there are 2 bedrooms and a bright 3-piece bathroom. Downstairs is another bedroom with a legal egress window, a rec room, and an office or craft space. The basement bathroom was redone in 2020 and has a soaker tub, linen closet, butcher block vanity, designer lighting, and lovely heated floors. The remainder of the floor in the basement is vinyl plank except for the original fir flooring in the basement bedroom. Outdoors, there are multiple relaxing spaces, the wood deck with a gas line for a BBQ or heater, the patio beside the pond under the crabapple tree, or the fire pit in the back for those summer nights bonfires. Other decorative updates include window coverings, all lighting upstairs, all hardware, sod, some fences, paint, and more. Don't worry though, the boring parts of the house have been updated too. The roof and eaves, attic insulation, and some windows were upgraded in 2013, the furnace is mid-efficiency from 2009, and the hot water tank is from 2011. The current sellers replaced the remainder of the windows (except the 2 decorative ones beside the fireplace), moved the power lines underground, and upgraded the panel in 2015, additional venting was added to the roof, and they replaced some of the main plumbing stack with modern piping and replaced all of the appliances. Then, the cherry on top, a SECRET room behind the bookshelf in the basement. Perfect for a kids' hideout, seasonal storage, or perhaps a cool wine cellar.
