If inner-city living, walkability, and bike-friendly are at the top of your “must-have” list, you will love this home in Altadore! Local favourites such as Monogram Coffee, Sandy Beach, My Favorite Ice Cream Shoppe, and the Glenmore Aquatic Centre are all less than a 10-minute walk, the bike lane is right outside the front door, and multiple schools are within walking distance.
The number of South and West-facing windows inside the home will make your dreams come true with sun-drenched rooms and a bright, open floorplan. Solid hardwood floors span the length and width of the main floor, and the kitchen was designed with home chefs in mind. Fall in love with a gas cooktop, dual sinks perched beneath a window, a garburator, a beverage fridge, a built-in oven and microwave, granite counters, tons of shelving, and an extra ceiling-height built-in for extra storage.
Host family dinners in the bright formal dining room, or venture through double sliding glass doors and enjoy outdoor meals in the South-facing backyard during the summer. The front living room features a wet bar, maple built-ins, and a beautiful gas fireplace, and the formal foyer provides a bench for a rare yet convenient option for storage, along with a front closet.
Spacious and filled with windows cascading light throughout, the primary suite offers beautiful details with a tray ceiling, an oversized walk-in closet, and a 5pc spa-style ensuite. Step inside and take it all in: a dual stone vanity, a vanity tower for extra storage, over-the-toilet storage, a luxurious soaker tub with a built-in maple cabinet and shelving, a large window for natural light, and an oversized fully-tiled shower with a glass enclosure, a rain showerhead, and a shower wand.
Two additional upstairs bedrooms feature extra space than most homes in the area due to the oversized lot size, and they share easy access to a full bathroom with stone counters, a fully tiled tub/shower, and a large vanity. A formal laundry room upstairs has a side-by-side washer/dryer, a folding counter, and built-ins.
The whole family will love the fully developed basement (2010) with a built-in entertainment unit in the rec room, a gas fireplace, in-floor heat, and a guest room/den/gym with hard surface floors! There’s a plumbing rough-in/hookup for a future basement bathroom, and an oversized utility room provides an optimal amount of year-round storage.
And finally, enjoy the outdoors in the fully fenced backyard with no maintenance turf, composite decking, a mature tree, a convenient storage shed, and a double detached garage that is insulated, drywalled, and heated with shelving to organize all your tools and toys!
Other valuable upgrade specs include central A/C (2012), K9 artificial grass in the backyard from ForeverLawn (2022), and a TRX composite deck (2015). Plus, a battery powered lawn mower and gas-powered snow blower are included.
Altadore is beautiful, vibrant, well established and phenomenally located. It offers a quick transit or bike ride downtown for those who work and play in the downtown core. It’s also great for people who love the outdoors because River Park and Sandy Beach border it!
