A question I love to ask the seller: whats your favourite room? An answer I love to hear: wherever I am! Once in a very rare while, a home comes up that truly is that exceptional! This circa 1875 stone bungalow in the coveted Old University neighbourhood is just that. The original centre hall cottage with 10 foot ceilings and big, deep windows had a gorgeous addition built in 1986 bringing the total square footage to just shy of 2100 with the opportunity of a full height basement which has been beautifully finished adding a games room and recreation room with its' exposed stone wall. Enter through the pretty front door into a vestibule leading through 2 of the bedrooms (they were at the front of the house in days gone by), 1 of which has a 2 piece ensuite and the other a walk-in closet. Ahead is a grand room with laundry room and 3 piece washroom tucked to the side ...and then...the beautifully modern kitchen with exposed stone walls, leathered granite counters and glorious maple floors. Off the family room at the back is another bedroom and 5 piece washroom with heated tile floors and a deep, dreamy tub. All this on a lush and private 1/4 acre a short stroll to Downtown and the University! (id:23309)
