Discover a rare opportunity to renovate or build your dream home on an oversized and exceptional 65-foot lot, situated in an incredible location backing onto Cambrian Heights off-leash dog park, a serene and idyllic haven for canine and human lovers alike. This lot is perfect for a new two-storey home designed to take full advantage of the picturesque views to the South.
For those more interested in renovating than building, this original mid-century bungalow offers over 1,200 square feet above grade, with a number of recent updates including all new Pella windows in 2013 and a new roof in 2022. The home offers original solid hardwood flooring throughout the main floor, plus original textured ceilings in the main living space. The bright living room is characterized by a real wood-burning fireplace and built-in shelving, plus a large window allowing ample natural light to fill the space. Featuring a sliding door that leads out to the backyard, the formal dining room provides the perfect setting for intimate gatherings and special occasions.
On the main floor, you'll find three sizeable bedrooms, plus a full bathroom with tub/shower combo and an extended vanity with storage. The kitchen is a good size, equipped with butcher block counters, newer appliances including a French door refrigerator and gas stove, a movable island, lots of cabinets and storage space, dual basin stainless-steel sink, and an adjoining mudroom with direct access to the rear deck.
The basement offers a large rec room featuring a gas fireplace and plush carpet, a bedroom with walk-in closet (window does not meet current egress requirements), a 3-pc bathroom with stand-up shower, and a den area that could be renovated to meet a variety of needs. Completing the lower level is the laundry room with a side-by-side washer & dryer, plus plentiful storage options including a utility room beside the garage. A convenient perk in the winter months, the basement offers direct access to the attached single car garage.
Outside, the backyard offers great potential for you to unleash your inner green thumb, with a large garden terrace. The large rear deck area provides a great space for private entertaining, while the large SOUTH-FACING rooftop patio offers great additional outdoor living space. Plentiful storage for your garden tools can be found in the two outdoor sheds.
This home has had numerous upgrades over the years, including all new high-end Pella windows installed in 2013, a new roof in 2022, upgraded kitchen appliances, and much more.
Cambrian Heights is a hidden gem community situated in a choice location only minutes to schools, Confederation Park, SAIT and U of C. Adding to the list of perks, amenities and entertainment are all nearby, including the Calgary Winter Club, golf courses, restaurants and more. Quick access to Downtown, Crowchild Trail and 16th Avenue makes travel in and around the city a breeze. Don't miss this opportunity to create your masterpiece!
