Spacious Glebe Family Home

Classic  elegance abounds in this single-family home. Fronting on two Glebe streets- One as the main entrance and the other provides access to the double car garage.

Stone walls and flagstone walkways wrap around the handsome exterior leading you thru a wrought iron gate to the awaiting interlocking terrace. The exterior is decoratively finished with decorative brick soldiering. The home retains many of its original features and appears to draw heavily on Queen Anne architectural influences, including its rounded window moldings, tiered ceiling trim and decorative crowns on many doorway trims well as the beautiful stained glass that graces several windows. Modernized kitchen and baths blend perfectly.

A spacious front porch provides shelter while you enter the home. You are immediately taken by the high ceilings, solid wood floors and the elegant trim. The original staircase newel post and railings  remain intact.

The rooms are all spacious and there is even room for a grand piano under the stairwell. Ideal area to have a library wall.

The living room is delightful - full of light and grace. Warmed by a gas fireplace with classic mantlepiece. The formal sized dining room will be a pleasure to entertain any size of gathering and can certainly accommodate all the friends and relatives for these special times.

A thoughtful redo of the kitchen blends a sense of continuance to the rooms. An abundance of floor to ceiling white cupboards accented by marbled earthy toned granite counters and an inviting eating island provide any cook with ample cooking and entertaining space - 2 Cook's in the family - No problem as the space is designed to allow for that. Wonderful  butler’s pantry is a real asset and allows for a great area for set up or a bar when entertaining large gatherings. Lots of pot and pull out  drawers. Quality applainces remain and the lighting combination provides recessed and counter lighting.

A perfectly located family room, just off the kitchen area with easy access from the rear foyer and door to yard and garage is ideal for a family.  Hardwood floors and built-in bookcases accent the space. There are two great closets - one for coats and a large one that is separate style  "mud room" for all your sports gear and kids’ stuff (direct access from the exterior). Direct access to the high and dry basement from the rear foyer.

The second level continues with 3 bedrooms that are sun filled and charming  Including an oversized Principal bedroom with dressing area that opens to a private front porch. Softwood flooring and the convenience of a full sized washer and dryer on this level . The bathroom has large vanity with 2 sinks and a whirlpool tub to relax in.

There is a door to a flat roof off the bathroom that would make an ideal roof terrace if desired.

The third floor is a beautifully bright with generous sized rooms. Perfect as the children's floor or turn into a full master suite there is a joyful feel to the spaces. Two excellent  oversized bedrooms and a 3pc bathroom on this floor and good closet spaces as well. 

The Yard and Exterior Space: 

Front Garden has a stone retaining wall that has mature plantings and a very pretty flagstone walkway that leads up to the large front porch as well around to the side if the house. 

Side and Rear Garden: A wrought iron gate and fence defines and opens to the interlocking pathway that is bordered by flower beds. The large Terrace is ideal for relaxing on or for entertaining. Shade is provided by a large cedar tree . If more garden required that is an easy fix as the gate could be moved to the lot line.

Doggie Perfect

The yard is fully fenced and before you go down the street to several dog friendly parks for the long walk your best friend will be safe in the yard.

Garage: Almost impossible to find in the Glebe this home has 2 garages and they are accessed directly off the street at the rear. Automatic garage door openers and door to yard.

The Area: 

Located in a quiet enclave in the Glebe the home is beautifully located just steps to one of the prettiest parks and water inlets in the Glebe.  Two blocks from the Canal - half block to Bank St and a 12-minute walk to Lansdowne.

At the end of the street are great shops , a vet, the famous Olga's ( the French Toast is irresistible ), the new coffee cafe Ten spot, the forever popular Earling's Variety with outside terrace and great food  and now a new resturants called thr33wco - a great fun resturants and bar All at the end of your street  with the whole of the rest of the Glebe steps away.  Loblaws and the Liquor store is a 5 minute walk .

There is a  strong business community As well there is an even stronger community association
