Many people talk about this house, and you can sometimes observe people pausing in front of this home on their leisurely community walks, admiring it’s grand curb appeal and beautiful low maintenance gardens. Being propped up on a hill like the guardian of the neighbourhood, or like a parading peacock displaying it’s vibrant colours, this home peers over the valleys of the historic Ward area, with Cutten Fields golf course and Guelph Turf Institute seen in the distance.
Lovingly restored and renovated the inside of this unique and 19th century home is just as beautiful as the outside. The soaring 10 foot ceilings, ornamented by rich crown moulding, and the warmth and glow of the golden oak hardwood floors all work together to create a peaceful feeling. Special features include a majestic floor to ceiling mantle and Valour gas fireplace. An eight foot wide triple paned glass patio door, allows the beauty of the private garden to visually merge into your home. Granite counters ornament the rich cherry coloured Barzotti cabinets. Interestingly a surprise under one bank of cabinets waits for the new home owner; an english style laundry centre. Discreetly tucked away under the cabinets rests a set of front load washer and dryer combo.
This is an old home built in 1881, but there is nothing to worry about in terms of the electrical, plumbing and all other hard features. Beginning with the age of the roof and windows because these are the first questions programmed into the minds of buyers; the roof is newer with shingles replaced in 2006, the windows were all redone with custom high quality frames and double paned, glazed glass in 2007. The warranty for the windows is for life and is transferable to the new owner. The electrical was updated with 200 amp service and the plumbing is all cooper. The furnace was replaced with a high efficiency furnace is 2007 and a air filtration with ultraviolet light was installed in 2012. Other upgrades include Culligan reverse osmosis water filtration system, and Valour gas fireplace.
For the men: The double car garage is large with it’s own sub panel with plenty of juice to run your power saws and other equipment. The garage is neatly layer out with pegboard to hang your tools and large work bench. The rafter also make great storage space.
In the yard you will find many sections, adding an never ending interest and perspective. From the front low maintenance ornamental gardens, the side outer fenced area with perennials always surprising you, the driveway garden with roses and mums, the garage side used for storage of trailers, garden waste/composte, to the inner yard with lush grass area bordered by low maintenance shrubbery. Finally the patio and decl area completes this private oasis. There are not really any neighbours directly adjoining the inner, fully fenced yard. Finally the forested area behind the house, although owned by the house far behind, provides an extra secretion not often found in the city.
This downtown location, is close to St. Georges park, shopping, the hospital, and is an overall wonderful area to live. The new owner will have pride when describing where you live to friends!
