Comfortable family home centrally located in a great neighbourhood in Canada’s capital

Our three storey, three bedroom semi-detached century home has been fully renovated but still has all of its original character. The main floor includes a cozy living room, with an original fireplace, a dining room and fully equipped kitchen with all appliances including a gas stove and convection oven. The kitchen opens onto a large shady deck, covered in grape vines in summer it’s a lovely place to enjoy a glass of wine or a BBQ on a summer evening. The front porch is also a lovely place to sit and enjoy.

The second floor features two bedrooms both with US sized double (full) beds as well as a full bathroom and a large family room with a smart television (Google, Roku and FireStick), lots of seating and another (non functioning) fireplace. The third floor includes a large main bedroom with Queen sized bed and a second full bathroom. Another deck off the third floor is a pleasant place to relax as well. Laundry facilities (washer and dryer) are located in the basement.

House is air conditioned with three ductless units, one in each bedroom. A reliable gas furnace keeps the house cozy in the winter. Depending on the exchange, indoor or outdoor parking may be available.
