Stunning Upgraded Character Home
1034 Princess Ave
MLS® NO: 877242
This 3 level Edwardian home has been lovingly upgraded to the highest of current day standards while maintaining the amazing character of yesteryear. Some of the many preserved exterior character features include the bellcast hipped roof with wide soffits, double-bevelled exterior siding, and a full width front covered porch featuring solid railing with scroll-cut spindles in the centre section. Inside you will find beautiful original examples of stained glass window panes, hardwood flooring, extensive use of hardwood mouldings, and a grand corner fireplace with tiger oak mantle in the original parlor. There are too many quality upgrades to list. The current owners worked extensively over the past 10 years with Mike Graham Construction who is well known for specializing in upgrading and preserving heritage homes. This includes a complete gut and renovation of the kitchen, with cabinetry by Jason Good, which won a 2011 CARE Award. This is a very efficient home, with a high efficiency gas furnace, thermal wood windows, gas fireplace, and heated bathroom floors. You won't have any worries with the infrastructure, with completely upgraded electrical and plumbing, a newer roof, rebuilt chimney, perimeter drains, rebuilt front steps/porch, and newer back deck. This home features a great floor plan for a family, with three bedrooms located on the upper floor alongside a beautiful 5 piece bathroom. The basement provides close to 1,000 square feet of open flex space for family, entertainment, home gym, workshop, and more. Enjoy your morning coffee on the large south facing front porch, and cherish family and friend BBQs in the fully fenced and private backyard. Such a wonderful Central Park/Fernwood location, so peaceful and quiet, while being just a short walk to town, restaurants, shopping, and bus routes. You will definitely be proud to call this home!
