Conveniently located just moments from transit, mins to schools and parks, and backing directly onto a large park and baseball diamond, this wonderful family home in Silver Springs is a fantastic opportunity for homeownership in an amazing established NW community.
Fully developed, with 3 spacious bedrooms and 1.5 baths upstairs, plus 2 more bedrooms and a full bath in the basement (with a separate entrance!), this home has plenty of room for a growing family. Recent updates over the last 10-15 years include a newer roof, windows, high-efficiency furnace, hot water tank, fence, vacuflo system, front-loading washer and dryer, and two FULLY renovated modern bathrooms. With a fantastic location, great bones and many of the larger non-cosmetic items already taken care of, you can spend your money on future renovations in a FUN way to get the kitchen and flooring you actually WANT rather than what someone else put in!
The bright main floor features enormous windows, a classic wood-burning fireplace with brick surround, and a spacious living and dining room with lots of room for full-size furniture. The eat-in kitchen could easily be opened up in a future renovation to allow for one large open-concept living space. Still very functional as-is, it boasts painted cabinetry, a built-in pantry, and a large window looking into the sunroom and backyard, plus room to add a floating island, dinette table, or cabinet for extra storage if desired.
3 large bedrooms are found on the upper floor, including the primary bedroom with a 2-piece ensuite bathroom and a secondary bedroom with a built-in twin alcove bed with shelving, perfect for kids! The fully renovated main bathroom boasts a custom stained wood vanity, quartz countertop with an undermount sink, and floor-to-ceiling subway tile.
The fully developed lower level is accessible two ways, from the front entranceway or via a separate entrance off the backyard. This separate basement entrance allows for great potential to add a legal basement suite in the future (subject to municipal approvals and permits), perfect for investors or those looking for some extra revenue!
With 2 more bedrooms and large windows for great natural light, the basement offers plenty of functional living space. The spacious family room has a gas fireplace with brick surround and lots of space for furniture. Anyone working from home will appreciate the built-in desk and storage cabinet in the flex area adjacent to the family room. Fully renovated, the basement bathroom features a modern floating vanity, a large soaker tub, and a separate glass and tile shower. This spa-like bathroom is a vast improvement on most other basement bathrooms in the area!
A generously sized 3-season sunroom off the rear of the home is the perfect “extra” space for hobbies or kids, providing approximately 200 square feet of extra living space to enjoy in various ways from Spring through Fall. Have a gardener in the family? In the Spring, you can exercise your green thumb by starting your own plants or using the space as a greenhouse. In the Fall, you can move your delicate plants in here to extend your growing season. How about you, hobbyists? This area has a ton of natural light and is a great spot to paint or create other masterpieces. Have kids who need to let off steam? This area is excellent for kids to play out of the main living space without getting covered in the snow or mud, which is so prevalent in Calgary’s shoulder seasons.
Situated on a large, landscaped lot with sunny WEST backyard exposure, this home backs directly onto a large green space and baseball diamond. Plenty of mature trees frame the rear, offering a nice view year-round. The large backyard area features an interlocking patio with built-in bench seating, a gas line for a BBQ, hammock posts, a grassy area, and loads of trees and shrubs, including lilac bushes, an apple tree, a pear tree, 2 saskatoon bushes, rhubarb, and an alley full of raspberries! The oversized double detached garage allows for lots of extra storage in addition to the ability to park 2 large vehicles.
Boasting a fantastic location in Silver Springs, just moments to transit and a quick drive to the LRT, this home also is just a few mins walk to multiple elementary schools. St Sylvester (K-6 Catholic French Immersion) and Silver Springs K-6 Public School are both just a 5-10 min walk away, as is the Silver Springs Preschool, Community Centre, and outdoor pool and skating rink. Silver Springs is a mature, family-oriented community very close to the LRT and Crowfoot shops/services. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the multiple ravines and park spaces that wind through the community. With access to Calgary’s bike path system just down the hill and just a short 12km ride downtown via the river pathway, you can make your daily commute a 2-wheeled one! You really can’t get a better location than this!
