Close to both Thomas D’Arcy McGee Catholic School, and Robert Hopkins Public School, and nestled right in between La Vérendrye Park and Ski Hill Park; this home is perfect for the growing family. Just on the other side of La Vérendrye Park sits Colonel By Secondary School, and the Beacon Hill Tennis Club. If your kids are looking for things to do, you’ll be happy to know that Richcraft Sensplex is close by, along with Titan Performance Centre, and Flyers All Star Cheerleading. In the other direction Earl Armstrong Arena, the Splash Wave Pool, and The Trillium Park Skateboard Park are just minutes away on Ogilvie Road.
Built in the early 1970’s, this home has seen many updates over the years. Most recently, the roof was replaced, the home was given a fresh coat of paint throughout, and both the front and back yards have been landscaped.
This home has fabulous curb appeal, with beautifully landscape gardens and lawns, an interlock walkway leading from the driveway up to the front door with a roomy front step. Decorate seasonally, and add a cute bistro set, or a bench to greet visitors. A spacious foyer welcomes you inside with the stairs leading upstairs just to your left, while the main central hallway is straight ahead, or turning to your right will lead you into the formal living room. Hardwood floors are underfoot throughout this main level, and a floor to ceiling curved window lets plenty of light in through the living room.
The formal living room sits open to the dining room, with its own picture window, and a doorway leading into the kitchen. The modern kitchen features shaker style cabinets, contrasting countertops and a peninsula with breakfast bar that is perfect for the party host that loves to stay in on the conversation while finishing up the cooking. The peninsula separates the kitchen from the spacious living room that features a brick faced gas fireplace to add warmth and ambiance during the cooler winter months. Snuggle up by the fire for family movie nights; and when someone eats all of the popcorn before the movie even starts – it’s just a quick trip back to the kitchen to get more!
Upstairs you will find a spacious primary bedroom suite, with a full en suite bathroom, and a nice large window. Three good-sized additional bedrooms, and a full main bathroom complete the upper floor. Down into the basement sits a large rec room with tiled flooring. A built-in corner bar, and a brick faced wall with a fireplace add ambiance to this space.
Patio doors lead out from the main floor family room, and kitchen, to the interlock patio and the large hedged backyard. A mature tree offers shade in the heat of the summer, and there is plenty of room to set up your vegetable garden while leaving lots of space for the kids to play.
It’s a quick drive or walk to the Ogilvie and Montreal Roads intersection with a Metro for the essentials, and take out from Gabriel’s Pizza, Popeye’s or a treat from Dairy Queen. Further along Ogilvie will find you more take out options like Crust & Crate, Firehouse Subs or Big Rig Brewery, as well as a Loblaws or Canadian Tire.
