This property presents the opportunity to either live in a lovingly cared for and updated 1912 century character home or to redevelop one of the last remaining large lots (47×130 Zoned M-CG72) in Hillhurst/Kensington! This home is located on a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of Hillhurst. It is within a 5-15 minute walk to Kensington shops and restaurants, SAIT, the Sunnyside LRT Station, the Jubilee Auditorium, Riley Park, Sunnyside Market and other grocery stores, multiple schools (grades1-12), and the downtown CORE. It is also just a quick train ride to the University. There is no location more walkable or accessible than this one, and yet the neighbourhood feels like a quiet oasis in the middle of the City.
The home itself enjoyed numerous upgrades in 2019 including a new furnace, new washer and dryer, fresh paint throughout, fresh painted trim on the exterior, new carpet upstairs, new eavestroughs, all new lighting, and a new garage door opening system. Other recent upgrades include newer windows, insulation, newer roof, 200 amp electrical panel, and hot water tank. Additional notable interior features include a freestanding gas fireplace, generous mudroom, spacious upstairs bathroom with a claw foot tub, and an amazing deep blue AGA stove in the kitchen.
The home is nestled on a massive lot and surrounded by gardens with mature trees and shrubs (including cherry, goji berry, and raspberry), a west backyard, a generous south side yard, and a large heated tandem garage / workshop off a paved alley. The neighbours are fantastic and you will immediately feel the relaxed, safe, and welcoming vibe of the community upon your arrival.
