SOLD in days! | 649 Gilmour Street | Unique Home with Old World Charm and Modern Updates in Centretown

“Hi Sylvie, 649 Gilmour - testimonial
First of all I want to tell you that you did a wonderful job.
My major fear was that I wasn’t planning to move this year so I was not prepared nor was the house. 
I chose you because you were the agent for the seller of this house when 
I bought it nineteen years ago, and then you sold my house on McLaren.       
You offered more services than other agents. The number of times you and your team were here to offer advice and set the house right. Finally, the house sold very quickly and you were really knowledgeable about the asking price.
Thank you so very much.                                                                                                                                     ~L. Kostash

A Rare Gem in Centretown

From the first impression this home shows that it is not your average century home found in Centretown. Set back slightly from the road with a detached garage at the end of the private driveway, a welcoming corner step, and a large upper floor balcony above said front step – perfect for spending relaxing summer nights with friends, or a good book.

Built in approximately 1909, this home has seen many upgrades, and renovations over the years. The most recent include the roof, furnace, windows and refinished hardwood floors, but the most outstanding are within the back addition of the home. With the addition of a large modern kitchen towards the back of the home, the living and dining rooms have been opened up into a larger open concept space that flow seamlessly into an eat-in kitchen. Traditional hardwood floors, and modern tiled backsplash with ample cabinet space maintain the contrast between old world charm and modern convenience that makes this home such a unique find.

Climbing the stairs you come to a magnificent space that is currently being used as a large Master Suite, but was originally built as an artists studio. Cathederal ceilings, skylights, and additional large windows accent this unique space. You can use this space as a studio – whether for art, yoga, dance, or photography, or maybe it’s your den of relaxation in the evenings after work, or perhaps you’re a writer and this transforms into your creative home office. Down the hall finds a full bathroom, and good sized bedroom with access to the front balcony.


649 Gilmour SOLD

The private backyard is complete with a deck large enough to host your friends and family long into the autumn months, assuming the weather cooperates with your plans!

If you’re looking for a place to eat out – it’s just a short 5 minute walk to Somerset Street and Chinatown where you will find any number of restaurants, and pubs depending on what you’re looking for that evening. 6 minutes in the other direction will find you at JAX Resto on Bronson, or Pressed along Gladstone – a great weekend bunch spot! For groceries, Massine’s Your Independent Grocer is great for everyday needs, and the Seed to Sausage General Store is less than 5 minutes away – if you aren’t already you’ll be the charcuterie connoisseur of your friends and family before you know it!
