Stunning Character Home in Calgary - Walking Distance to Downtown
This family home has had its character lovingly maintained over the years. Over the past year, the owners have painted the entire home, restored the balcony floors, replaced the furnace, hot water tank, and garage roof. It features high ceilings, amazing millwork, some original lighting fixtures, original heat registers while also having a modern kitchen and bathrooms. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, freshly oiled butcher block countertops, and a beautiful farmhouse apron sink that overlooks the backyard. The dining room opens into the living room and out to the back deck through french doors. The backyard has a spacious deck, mature trees, and vining ivy that climbs the home. The 33 ft wide lot has a long driveway and single garage to keep your vehicles off the street or perhaps add a double garage one day. Upstairs has original fir flooring and 3 large bedrooms. The master has a private balcony that captures a glimpse of downtown. The bathroom has been refreshed and looks like it showroom with bright subway and heated hexagon floor tile. On the way downstairs there is a private side entry that would be great for a nanny or teen. The basement has higher ceilings than most homes of this era and has large windows that keep it bright. There is plenty of storage built-in plus a large media unit for watching TV. A bedroom, bathroom, and laundry room complete this level. This home features the character that you just can't find anymore plus the modern conveniences and the most expensive rooms to renovate already complete. The location is amazing as you are steps to a variety of fine and fast dining, cycle + running paths, downtown, parks, playgrounds, and really just about everything you could want. This home is also located within Rosedale Elementary's catchment area - a great, small school. 2nd Street does not have access from Centre Street or 16th Avenue which eliminates the cut-through traffic found in many inner-city communities. Don't hesitate to set up a viewing of this lovely home.
