A very charming house on a quiet, family oriented street in the ever-popular Fraser neighbourhood. Setting this home apart is its excellent layout with a garden level one bedroom legal suite, great outdoor spaces, and an undeniably charming disposition.
The home is divided into two suites, the main on the upper two floors and secondary at the garden level.
The main suite has four bedrooms, a large formal living room, a separate dining room, flex space, and a large kitchen with direct access to the backyard.
In this space, much of the original character has been maintained, including top-nailed solid oak hardwood flooring, a wood burning fireplace and coved ceilings in the living room, original built-ins, arched doorways, and other charming touches.
The living room has a good view of the streetscape and gets direct western light, while the kitchen has windows on both the south and east side of the home. Light is plentiful throughout this home.
There’s a large dedicated laundry/ storage/ utility room on the garden level for the main suite, with direct access from inside. The secondary suite has its own separate laundry.
The legal secondary suite is a one bedroom completely self contained living space, also with its own entrance.
This suite was more recently renovated with modern systems and building techniques. Finishings include tile and laminate flooring, granite countertops, stainless appliances, fresh millwork, recessed lighting, a soaker tub with subway tiles and custom fixtures in the bathroom, and modern stacking front-loading laundry.
Excellent outdoor spaces are a highlight of this home. The front yard is great for raised beds with excellent direct sunlight, as it faces west. The large east facing backyard is extremely green with mature plantings and trees.
A detached garage accesses the lane, with lots of space for the car and a workshop and storage. A modern overhead door, power, and great lighting make this a very flexible space.
This home is located a few blocks east of Fraser Street, giving you quick access to the best of both Main and Fraser neighbourhood shops and amenities. You can also venture a bit further east to access everything Commercial Drive has to offer.
Fraser Street has seen a lot of changes over the last few years and some great services are now just a short walk away. Local favourites include Prado Cafe, JJ Bean Coffee, Batard Bakery, Carano Pizza, Ernest Ice Cream, and the Marche St. George cafe.
Grey’s Park is only half a block away. This is a large space with two tennis courts, a basketball court, gazebo, playground, wading pool, dog area and a baseball diamond. McBride Annex is here as well, located just on the other side of the park.
Overall, this is a great home with an excellent layout. The character elements create a warmth and charm, and the outdoor spaces and site orientation present a lot of possibilities.
