This large infill home was built on a historic 1/4 acre lot in Pleasantview, Edmonton. The lot was originally a 1/2 acre given to a war vet that he subdivided and shared with his brother. In 2008 the infill project began utilizing a floor plan reminiscent of the old victorian estate homes with the front sitting room, formal dining room, large porch and main floor master bedroom. The modern and unique upper floor has 3 large bedrooms with shared ensuites. Two of the bright bedrooms have a large "jack and jill" bath between them, and the third has a door to the ensuite bath which also has a door to the common area. The large open family room area, currently used as an office space, has so many potential uses such as family library, play area, and more. Over top of the garage is a beautiful bonus room featuring dormer windows and room great enough for the largest furniture.
The basement of the home, currently has a ballet practice space in the HUGE recreation room, 2 generous bedrooms, utility room, laundry room, 3 piece bath and storage. There is a door to a cold storage space which is actually the basement located UNDER the front porch. This space could be easily converted into a basement entryway, should future owners desire to have a separate entrance to the basement.
Outside, the 1/4 acre lot provides for a lot of green space. there is a second garage door on the main attached garage that allows access to the rear double garage. This is an ideal set up for the car enthusiast, or could be easily converted into a studio, wood working shop or more. Attached to the back of the detached garage is a greenhouse where you can start your vegetables early for planing in the gardens. When thinking about the exterior of the home, you will notice the hardware is in place on the front porch for a porch swing. Imagine sitting out front sipping iced tea and enjoying the summer while swinging gently on your front porch swing!
