Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in West Hillhurst, this upgraded, 2-storey detached home is the OG of infills and full of character! The location is optimal for families with kids as it’s surrounded by parks, such as an off-leash dog park, Helicopter Park, Parkdale Community Centre, and accessible rink, and the river pathways.
Boasting over 2,000 square feet of total living space, including a developed basement, this fantastic family home offers 3 total bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large landscaped yard with mature greenery, many perennials, and flowering trees/shrubs.
This home is well-maintained and in fantastic shape, with several updates, including refinished real, original hardwood floors, new and updated lighting, a renovated ensuite bathroom, and an added third bedroom in the developed basement.
The main floor features sizeable primary living spaces, including a central kitchen, rear formal dining room, and a bright front living room. At the heart of the home, the open-concept kitchen boasts plenty of cabinetry, a full-height tile backsplash, central vacuum to the toe kick, and a raised eating bar for quick meals and socializing. The dual basin stainless-steel sink sits beneath a greenhouse-style window, offering an idyllic location for your favourite house plants. The appliances include a dishwasher, a refrigerator, a wall oven, and a gas cooktop.
The family room is flooded with natural light through South-facing oversized windows overlooking the front yard. It’s open to the basement level below, allowing the light to reach what is often the darkest floor – but not at this home! Adjacent to the kitchen, a formal dining area features sliding glass doors and access to the back.
Beautifully refinished wood railings with glass inserts lead upstairs to a hallway skylight and two large bedrooms with sizeable windows and soaring vaulted ceilings. Double doors create an elegant entrance to the master suite featuring tall ceilings with natural wooden exposed beams and space for a small workspace or reading nook, a spacious closet, and a renovated ensuite with a barn door, tile floors, new lighting, new vanity, new paint, a new mirror, and a tub/shower combo. The secondary bedroom also has tall, vaulted ceilings with natural wooden exposed beams, plus massive windows and a spacious closet. It has easy access to the 4-piece main bathroom with tile floors, extended vanity, and a tub/shower.
There’s a separate side entry for easy access downstairs, where the developed basement has a sizeable family room flooded with natural light from the main level windows. This level also offers a laundry space and a beautiful apron sink that can serve multiple uses. A third bedroom has been added for extra space, and rough-ins for a future bathroom are already plumbed in, so there’s great potential for future renovations.
A mature backyard offers more space than many homes on comparable lots, with a raised deck, pergola, mature gardens, a garden shed, and lots of green space to enjoy the summer weather. At the front of the house, an expansive front porch has ample space for outdoor furniture and overlooks the beautiful front yard and quiet cul-de-sac street.
This home is conveniently located on a quiet street just one block from the Bow River and its pathways. It’s also a short walk to the nearest playground and Westmount Charter Elementary School. City bike paths give easy access to a couple of off-leash dog parks, Foothills Medical Centre, Sunterra Market, and also right into downtown Calgary. Located close to unlimited amenities, this area is a favourite among families and professionals alike.
