Filled with the homespun warmth of an earlier era, with exposed wood floors and trim, original fireplace and mantle, original glass and stained glass windows, built-in, period cushioned benches, sliding pocket doors, high ceilings, maid’s staircase and other classical architectural details, all contribute to this home’s historic charm.


A single home and boasting 3 large floors of living space on a 50’ x 103’ lot, this property offers a multitude of possibilities. The home is mostly intact with original charm and could be further restored to its splendor or renovated/modernized to your own taste in a modern flare

.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 lane way and yard just minutes from all that the Glebe has to offer but on a beautifully tree lined street that offers a family lifestyle in an urban setting.
