Walking distance from Lorenzo’s Pizza, 3 Sisters Bake Shop and Shawarma Rosana at Arch and Canterbury, as well as Canterbury Park, Jim Kilrea Arena, Canterbury Rec Centre and the “Best Outdoor Rink in the City.” Surrounded by schools like Arch Street Public School, École Élémentaire Catholique Sainte-Geneviève, and Canterbury High School, and just minutes away from both Heron Gate and Elmvale plazas in a family oriented neighbourhood – this home is perfect for growing families, and first time home owners alike.
Built by Campeau in the mid-1960’s, this Elmvale Acres Bungalow sits under the shade of a beautiful mature tree, with a fully hedged corner yard alongside. Well maintained lawn and gardens catch your eye as you step up the interlock steps leading to the spacious partially covered front porch. Enjoy catching up with friends and family over tea, while you wait for the kids to get home from school, on the porch sitting on a cozy conversation set.
The entryway is similar to most bungalows in the neighbourhood; with a cozy foyer that opens up into a spacious living room featuring a beautiful bay window that overlooks the front yard, and the street beyond that. Hardwood covers the floors throughout this main level, with tile in the kitchen, foyer, and bathroom. Straight ahead from the living room, to the right from the entryway leads down a hallway where at the end you will find the kitchen to your right and the dining room to your left.
Earthy neutrals brighten the updated eat-in kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, grey subway tile backsplash, and white shaker style cabinets. There is lots of room for a table and chairs in the roomy breakfast nook – perfect for quick breakfasts and week night dinners catching up after a long day of work and school. For more formal dinners, or when friends and family come to visit; the dining room is just one room over for easy transport of food and drinks as dinner turns into games and good conversation. Alternatively, the dining room was originally a bedroom in the builders plans, still has a closet, and could easily serve as a third main floor bedroom depending on your personal needs. Two additional good sized bedrooms, and a nicely updated full main bathroom complete the main level.
A side door leads directly down to the basement where you will find a beautiful wet bar accented with barnboard, a pellet stove, oversized family room, an additional bedroom with a great sliding farmhouse door, and a full bathroom. If you were hoping to have a separate basement apartment for your college student; the addition of a kitchen would be all it would take. There is no shortage of natural light from 4 nice basement windows.
You’re sure to enjoy the private hedged corner yard with a stone patio, mature trees and plenty of room to set up a vegetable garden while still having lots of space for the kids to play.
Close to The Ottawa Hospital, General and Riverside Campus’ as well as CHEO. There are a number of parks within walking distance; Canterbury is practically across the street, Weston just a few blocks north, and if you follow the multi-use path from Kilborn Avenue you’ll end up at Lynda Lane Park.
Groceries are a breeze at Elmvale Plaza where you’ll find Loblaws, Rexall, and Starbucks as well as a number of great take out spots, or Metro Elmvale just at the corner of Walkley and St. Laurent. Heron Gate Square offers even more take out options, as well as shopping at Dollarama, Pet Value and Leon’s, and one of the city’s newest Goodlife Fitness locations.
