Welcome to a true Victorian beauty! Located in the much sought-after neighborhood of Georgestown, this home is close to all city amenities and a short stroll to the vibrant downtown. Built c.1878, 17 Maxse Street is all about details, and highlights the craftsmanship of that era. The interior claims 10-foot ceilings with exquisite plaster mouldings, Victorian 'flash glass', a bespoke staircase- all original, right down to the wood trims and doors. The softwood floors have aged well, lending a comforting patina to the home. The spacious living and dining rooms feature original slate fireplaces/tiles, plenty of storage and custom display areas. The large windows, all original, bathe the first floor with light. The 'linney' kitchen, a later addition, has all the conveniences of a modern home, with stainless steel appliances, a breakfast area, and patio doors leading to the garden outside. A powder room rounds out the first floor. Up the majestic staircase are two large bedrooms, both with original fireplaces and wood trims. The main bathroom and linen closet were renovated to new standards; having the laundry located here is so convenient. Further up the staircase are two additional bedrooms with generous closets, a full bathroom and a kitchenette, all having been renovated. A bright mezzanine with skylight adds to the living space and offers potential to personalize this area. The basement is fully functional; storage areas were added within the footprint of the original rooms. Some of the rubble stone foundation is visible here. Also remaining are some of the cabinets from the old kitchen, which was initially in the basement. Outside, a double paved driveway eliminates any parking woes. Drive-in access to the rear yard is afforded via Davey's Lane, at the end of a secluded, yet popular, green space. The multi-surfaced patio area is perfect for relaxing, and the tiered garden is well-stocked with perennials and fruit trees, and changes colours with the season. (id:18358)
