Contemporary living with character in charming East End DanforthSend This Listing To A Friend
The welcoming covered front porch is the perfect introduction to this bright updated home. Inside, you’ll find it’s the perfect combination of character and contemporary living. Airy and open, the formal living room, with cozy fireplace and premium vinyl plank floors, flows to the dining room and kitchen. The original leaded stained-glass windows and original radiators with covers in the dining room and throughout the home are simply stunning.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The original wooden closet doors and hardware remain, adding to the charm of the rooms. The principal bedroom has a large window that bathes the room in light. The main bathroom upstairs has a double vanity and glass enclosure for the tub/shower.
Downstairs in the partially finished basement, you’ll find the 4th bedroom and second bath. There is a new skim coat on the basement floor adding to the usability of the space. You could create a private office and playroom, use as a family TV room or simply take advantage of the abundant storage.
There is a great backyard with a lovely tree canopy with a lot of space for BBQs, setting up a trampoline or backyard campouts with the kids. And there’s a great opportunity to extend summer by running a heat lamp to entertain a little while socially distancing.
In addition to the yard, there is a detached garage. You could pull your car in to protect it from the elements, or create the perfect additional space for your life – workshop, office, fitness area, yoga zone or studio space – really, the possibilities are endless.
