Picture a 19th Century, gable-fronted home painted an archetypal Farmhouse Red, owned by an avid gardener and located west of Wellington Rd, 3 min from the Thames Valley Trail and a 10 min walk to downtown. Built by a carpenter by the name of Frank Gibson circa 1850, this two-storey licensed duplex will surprise and enchant you. From the front yard to the deep garden, this home retains its original character with ornate decorative fascia, beautifully crafted eave brackets and charming curb appeal accented by interlock brick driveway and front walkway. The effective division between the two units makes it perfect for someone looking to live in one unit and rent out the other, rent out both or convert to single family home. The possibilities are great! The main level suite boasts exquisite wood trim work, 3 stained glass windows, transom window in the front lobby and decorative mouldings throughout the elegant formal living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and cozy farmhouse kitchen with 10' ceilings and loads of cupboard space. The spacious family room features a cast-iron direct vent gas stove and French doors leading to a large deck overlooking the spectacular gardens in the tranquil and private backyard. This level has access to its own laundry and basement storage. Convenience and charm are united throughout. The upper suite with (private entrance) is flooded with natural light. It features a bright kitchen, large living room, 2 bedrooms and modern 4 pc bath with rustic barn door. Wired and heated studio/garage 20' x 15' with 2 Velcro skylights (one is remote-controlled with solar-powered venting) and a large window with etched glass design. This home has been meticulously maintained by the current owner. Upgrades include furnace and ductwork 2010, humidifier and air-conditioning unit 2014, upgraded electrical, plumbing, 40-year shingles, attic insulation, blown-in insulation around the ring-beam and basement walls and so much more. This is not an ordinary house. (id:20429)
