Suppose you are looking for an established neighbourhood with tree-canopied streets and friendly neighbours but don’t want to sacrifice the convenience of living inner-city close to amenities. In that case, you are going to love this recently renovated detached home in Tuxedo Park. Happily situated on a corner lot in the heart of the community, a proverbial grove of mature trees offers timeless curb appeal paired with hedges and garden beds.
Move right on in! Recently renovated, this three-bedroom home is completely turnkey and ready for a new family to love. Perfect for younger families and/or working professionals, no DIY skills are necessary – all you need to do is move in your furniture and say, “welcome home!”
Tons of natural light fills the main floor as you enter the spacious front foyer. The front coat closet provides plenty of storage for shoes and jackets to remain out of sight and mind. South-facing windows offer warmth and sunshine to the space and create a feeling of comfort and joy. Hardwood floors carry into the roomy living space with a gas fireplace and several South-facing windows that don’t compromise privacy due to the mature trees outside.
The tiled kitchen is around the corner, and what a beautiful kitchen it is! Recently renovated with two-tone cabinets, white quartz counters, and a class white tile backsplash, it not only has everything you need but everything you want. The dual basin undermount kitchen sink is equipped with a garburator and complements the stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner gas stove. A sizeable central island has unobstructed preparation space, lots of drawer storage, and a breakfast bar for those quick meals.
More hardwood flooring covers the spacious dining room area, complete with a warming gas fireplace, a mantle with built-ins, and a TV/wall mount. A large window overlooks the backyard, and there’s direct access to the rear entrance and the double detached garage. An elegant 2-piece powder room is privately tucked away with an updated vanity, a tiled feature wall, a decorative mirror to complete the main floor features.
Newer carpet covers the stairs leading to the upper floor, where three bedrooms reside. The master bedroom has features most homeowners only dream of – vaulted ceilings, large South-facing windows with shutter-style blinds, a gas fireplace surrounded by custom built-in storage, a walk-in closet, and a 4-piece ensuite. Relax at the end of a long day in the ensuite with a deep soaker tub, a fully tiled stand-up shower with a glass door, wood grain tile floors, and an extended quartz vanity.
The two secondary bedrooms are generously-sized, and both feature walk-in closets. They share the main 4-piece bathroom with an extended quartz vanity, a full-height storage cabinet, tile floors, and a tiled shower/tub combo.
Downstairs, the fully developed basement is ready for entertaining friends and family. A large rec room provides an ideal space for a theatre and/or play area, which is great for family movie nights and when you need the kids playing as far away from the main floor as possible. The fourth bedroom is great for guests who have easy access to a 4-piece bathroom with tiled floors and a tiled tub/shower combo with a handheld showerhead. The basement also hosts a large laundry room equipped with a laundry sink, upper storage cabinets, and a side-by-side washer/dryer.
The fully fenced, huge backyard is wonderfully flat, making outdoor activities easy and safe. A large wood deck provides a home for your BBQ and patio furniture and is a fantastic spot for summer get-togethers and birthday parties. Raised garden beds are great for growing herbs and veggies, while the mature trees offer shade on warm days. The brushed concrete walkway is low maintenance and connects the front door to the backyard and double detached garage. Fully insulated, the garage has upgraded OSB plywood walls and lots of storage for two vehicles, tools, and more.
Other home upgrades include a central vacuum system, a newer high-efficiency furnace, large low-maintenance vinyl windows throughout, and a roof in really great condition. There’s also an alarm system ready-to-go with a contract takeover option available to the new owners.
Tuxedo Park is an established inner-city community located only 3kms north of the city with transit, LRT, and 16 Avenue nearby, making getting around the city a breeze. This home also has easy access to Centre Street and amenities like Rosso Coffee and Lina’s Italian Market & Cafe, the North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre, Mount Pleasant Outdoor Rink, and Confederation Park. Proximity to SAIT, U of C, primary/junior high schools, and Foothills Hospital make this community a favourite among families and professionals alike!
