Property Photo


Walk from Honeys or Caf~ La Maude to your so spacious 20-foot wide oasis with a rear patio that opens up to Myrtle street and the current owners use for parking. There is a wall built at the entrance which creates a separate entrance to the first floor. This wall can be removed prior to settlement if you want to use this as an open 4 bedroom. However, you could keep the wall and have an in-law suite upstairs which is two bedrooms and a bathroom with a mini kitchenette set up, currently. The strikingly beautiful thin dark stained wood greets you as you enter the first floor. The open span shows you the living, dining and into the kitchen area. The completely renovated kitchen has 11 ceilings and a huge pantry closet. Continue down the hall to a massive bedroom with two side windows and two nice closets. The next room in the long hallway is a rarely seen dedicated 7 x 7 laundry room with top loading washer and dryer. The renovated bathroom has a nice wide shower. Keep walking back to your so so quiet rear master bedroom with closets and bright bathroom with south facing window. The french doors in this bedroom open to the most unique feature of this house. The rear outdoor space opens to the tiny quiet cobblestone Myrtle Street. The current owners love to use this contemporary wood stained fenced in 11 x 19 patio for bbq/entertaining and to park a car! There are 3 huge planters where you can grow your own vegetables or fun plants and there is plenty of outdoor storage space for trash to take out on the weekly pick up day. The second floor is again currently separated as a two bedroom floor with a full bath and could be opened back up to share the whole house. It is currently used as an in-law suite with friends renting for $1100 which really helps cover the mortgage costs. Take a step away from cookie cutter 14-16 wide new construction houses to own a unique 20 wide house with creative opportunities. The basement has extremely high ceilings and is great storage space. Schedule an appointment today and enjoy lunch at a local caf~ or make it dinner at Dmitris or Silk City Diner. Yards just opened up a huge beer hall and soon there will be a mini Target attached to that building at 5th and Spring Garden so the location is amazing. You can walk to Old City in about 6 minutes or take public transportation in even faster.
