Welcome to this exquisite 1910’s character home nestled on a sprawling 44.5’ lot with a sunny West-facing backyard in the heart of Bridgeland. This stunning property boasts tasteful renovations that gracefully blend vintage charm with modern amenities, making it the perfect residence for those who crave modern conveniences yet appreciate old world charm.
It’s easy to see why Bridgeland is consistently rated in the top 10 in Avenue Magazine’s “Best Neighbourhoods.” It’s brimming with countless shops, restaurants, coffee shops and other amenities like Bridgeland Market, Made by Marcus, OEB Breakfast, Blue Star Diner, and more! There are tons of parks nearby, and you’re less than a 15-minute walk away from the Bow River pathway, the LRT and the Downtown core.
The curb appeal on this charming home is undeniable, with a lovely front porch to enjoy a refreshing cold drink on a hot summers’ day. Inside, a formal foyer wrapped in hand-crafted wood and a stained-glass window welcomes you. The home’s updates are clearly visible as you make your way towards the kitchen and living room. The main floor features solid hardwood and tile flooring throughout, wainscotting along the walls, 9’ textured ceilings, exposed brick, and more.
Just past the entrance, you’ll find the front living room featuring a large window overlooking the front porch and lovely tree-lined street, plus wainscotting and vintage wood trim which brings a classic style to the space.
Vintage charm is combined with a clean, modern style in the bright and open kitchen. Here, white cabinetry sits alongside a white tile backsplash, wood block countertops, an apron style sink, stainless-steel appliances and a functional island with stone countertop. Not that the space needs any more character, but an exposed brick column adds a unique, homey touch to the room.
A picture-perfect, South-facing bay window in the dining area just off the kitchen basks the space in natural light, adding to the charm. Behind the dining room, a cozy rear family room is a great space to relax with a favourite book or TV show, with French doors that lead out to the large rear deck and backyard. Finishing the main floor is an elegant two-piece powder room.
An exquisite, hardwood-wrapped staircase leads upstairs, where you will find the well-sized primary bedroom with two closets and windows overlooking the backyard, a secondary bedroom with a closet, plus a flex space perfect for a reading nook. Here you will find access to the front balcony which overlooks the quiet tree-lined street below. Fully renovated, the 4-pc bath featured a fully tiled stand-up shower with a glass door, plus a beautiful, claw foot soaker tub.
Adding to the home's living space is a fully developed basement that makes for a great home office, workout space, or rec room. A newer front-loading washer and dryer plus storage space are found in the laundry room.
A huge sunny deck with a built-in pergola overlooks the enormous West-facing backyard and offers plenty of room for lounging, or entertaining friends and family. The yard is fully fenced and has garden boxes to take full advantage of the Southern sun. Plus, there is plenty of space to replace the existing single car garage with an oversized double or even a triple if desired!
