"So go Downtown
Things will be great when you're Downtown

Downtown
Everything's waiting for you"

A renovation that has preserved the original features while creating a stylish light-filled spaces”

This end unit townhome will not just be close to everything but the spaces are versatile to suit any need for the busy executive single or urban couple.  Room for the at home workspace when you are not walking to your downtown office mere minutes away.  With the development of Lebreton Flats and the downtown core the neighbourhood will only become more and more vibrant with amenities to enjoy. The downtown has come a long way and is rapidly moving into a leap with more revitalization planned and in process of the core areas. 

Furthermore, this home  has been renovated and  restored preserving some of the charming original features. However the stylish  kitchen that is  accented by a fabulous tin ceiling is  a contemporary and  light-filled space. There is a large rear terrace off the kitchen, stretching the width of the property. The kitchen looks thru the eating counter and cozy den area out to the terrace though a wall of windows that flood the rooms with lovely light.

The  nature of the renovation by the current owners has made the townhome truly unique, with inspiration drawn from original features such as the brick walls and high trim that blend with the  modernising elements creating a warm and inviting home.

The kitchen is some cook's "heaven" with an abundance of counter and cupboard space and a hanging pot rack just over the large sink and professional faucet. Entertain your friends at the eating bar (ideal for casual dining)  or move to formal dining room area.

The main principal bedrooms runs the width of the home and provides a bedroom large enough for a  sitting area. There is lots of closet space and an oversized ensuite bathroom with soaking Jacuzzi and a walk in glass shower stall, The pretty second bedroom looks south and there is a 3pc bathroom just out side its door. A real laundry room with sink and counter/cupboard space and a utility closet as well.

The basement is presently used for storage - it is clean and dry and a large exterior  entrance was added for easy access .
