This is a beautifully transformed house, with an aesthetic approach blending modern with classic character. Truly charming, the design and reconstruction has been creatively executed with lots of love and many top quality finishings.
This house has three levels, with an unfinished basement that has plumbing and electrical roughed in. Feel free to develop the basement to your liking. You could connect it to the upstairs floors, or finish it off as a suite with the existing separate entrance.
This house has been structurally updated with new drain tiles, new plumbing, new electrical, a newer city water line, new water tank, new 200 amp service, etc. The roof was reinforced with 2x8 joists and rafters.
The top level was recently renovated with a bedroom, large den, and bathroom. This is a charming space built out of the original attic. Ceiling height is about 6 feet at the center of the rooms. Skylights and a clever layout make the best use of the space. The upper bathroom has a clawfoot tub adjacent a large east facing window. A bath with a view.
Finishing includes FisherPaykel appliances, custom millwork, lighting from Inform, reclaimed/ re-milled fir flooring, exposed brick, reclaimed heritage doors and feature windows, skylights, pot lights, etc.
Outdoors is a beautifully developed garden with several fruit trees including cherry and apple. A huge cedar deck with north shore/ east views sits high on the lot, just off the kitchen eating area, providing a lot of sunshine and associated happiness. There are gas and water connections on this deck, as well as built in lighting.
The backyard is extremely private with high cedar fencing. It's also RS1 zoned with the house set pretty far forward on the lot for your laneway aspirations.
Fraser Street and Main Street shops are close by with all the services and amenities you're familiar with in the neighbourhood. Walk everywhere, or just hang out in one of the most charming houses in the area.
