    Description

    1885 was a very...beautiful year! This mini Victorian with its wrap-around porch has tons of charm and originality. The home truly makes a statement with its beautiful wood work, pocket doors & hardwood floors throughout complemented by detailed hardware, period fixtures, front and back staircases and of course a parlor upfront as you enter. As a bonus, some of the beautiful pieces will stay. This home offers so much character but we don't want to overlook a few other items such as all the pipes running through the basement are now copper, the electrical box has circuit breakers, the boiler is only about 5 years old and the water heater is brand new last year. Keep the beauty going with some painting and a few cosmetic touches. It sits proudly on a great lot with a 2 story - 2 car garage, shed, & additional paver parking space. There is no denying what a great location it is with just a short stroll to Lord's park that will provide enjoyment time after time. You won't believe how much it has to offer and all within a block or 2. There are beautiful ponds, walking paths, picnic areas, multiple play grounds, parks, aquatic centre, nature centre a museum and even buffalo as well as a small zoo. Of course there's athletic fields, basketball and tennis courts too. All this and more and you won't even need to get in the car.
