Significant sized rooms provide a wonderfully spacious home to raise a family in and to provide formal entertaining. Stunning entrance foyer and staircase with oversized stained-glass window acting as a backdrop to the room. The charm flows through to the second and third floor bedrooms with high ceilings, wood floors, unfilled bedrooms ( 5 ), a pretty sunroom also with wood floors, for bedrooms and office spaces. The third floor could be redone to provide a huge master suite with lovely treetop views.
The lot is private and large with a brick garage / carriage house that is in very good condition. There is also a loft in the garage. Lovely home, private laneway and yard just minutes from all that the Glebe has to offer but on a beautifully treelined street that offers a family lifestyle in an urban setting.
