Solid, sunlit starter home in Thorncliffe

This charming home in a park-like setting is waiting for its new owner. The home oozes character with original hardwood floors, unique ceilings, a bow window, and a quaint front porch. The main floor features a large kitchen with a gas stove, a breakfast bar, and the kitchen sink overlooks the SW backyard. The dining room has a beautiful set of 5 floor-length windows that get stunning filtered light from the south - perfect for plant lovers. The dining room has sliding doors out to the large deck in the backyard. There is a decorative archway into the living room that is also very spacious and has a large picture window with a glimpse of downtown. The master bedroom has a large open closet with a convenient laundry shoot. There is also a three-piece bathroom and a second bedroom upstairs. Downstairs has an enormous rec room with vinyl flooring that looks like hardwood. There is another finished bedroom and a second 4 piece bath plus another room that could be used as a bedroom or workshop. The laundry room has lots of storage and a laundry sink for the delicates. This home has been well cared for and has a high-efficiency furnace and a hot water tank from 2018. Outside is like your own forest with tall spruce trees, a cotoneaster hedge, lilacs, and many perennial wildflowers. There is also a detached garage and room for a trailer. This corner lot is very private and would be a great lot to redevelop into a modern home in trendy Thorncliffe. This home is within walking distance to Shoppers Drug Mart, Safeway, 2 Elementary Schools, pubs, medical centers, and the BRT on Centre Street.
