Have you noticed this beautiful older home with its vibrant blue coat all trimmed in white as you drive along Freshwater Rd? Of course, you have! Who hasn’t? Have you wondered what character & appeal await behind its latched door? Now it’s yours to discover! Built circa 1890, with upgrades made over the years, there is lots of charm remaining, reminiscent of the era. The main floor greets with an entry, a hallway & stairway, a living room & dining room with fireplaces, and an eat-in- kitchen that sports some exposed brick, a “kitchen hatch” and patio doors leading to the back deck. The main floor also includes a ½ bath & laundry room adding to life’s daily comforts. Upstairs, the two front bedrooms have been opened as one but could easily return to 2 again, making it a 3-bedroom home (although you may want to enjoy the comforts of a larger room). The smaller, but sizable bedroom with a small fireplace, completes this side of the 2nd storey. To the right, you will find the main bath which was moved & updated. And in the hallway, you will find a built-in chest of drawers, ingrained with stories & memories of bygone years. You just might want to preserve this cupboard as a wonderful conversation piece! There is also a delightful room at the back of the upper level that would make for a wonderful sitting, reading or family room with a small balcony overlooking the back yard. And the back yard absolutely must be noted for its fabulous size & glorious garden. With a shed that suits the eye-popping colour scheme & allows for all your gardening tools, there’s tons of more space if you want to build another. Build a gazebo, an outdoor kitchen, an arbor; there’s no shortage of land. Add to the flowering shrubs, variety of plants, fruit bearing trees and perhaps cultivate more homegrown produce for your table. Sounding too good to be true? Park your car in the driveway to the side, bring your personal touches and this beautiful gem can really become your new “old” home! (id:18358)
