105 Albert Street, Waterloo


It’s such a pleasure to present this rare Edwardian classic on a 68 foot wide lot, backing onto Waterloo Park, in the Macgregor Heritage District.  There’s so much on offer here; from the concrete drive with parking for seven vehicles, plus a toy in the vintage garage.  What needed renovating was renovated, while what mattered to the character of this classic was cherished and retained.  Many original fixtures remain on this premium build of its era, including pewter door handle sets on the outside AND inside of many closet doors.  Most of the original trim work remains and has been meticulously maintained, while even the heating vent covers have been restored to their proper copper lustre.  Though the living and dining rooms take you back to yesteryear with the crackle of a roaring wood flame and cascading southern rays from the elevated window sets, the updates are a-plenty with main floor powder room in the coat check with possible laundry, and a productive top quality custom granite kitchen with dovetail drawers, potlights and impressive Bosch Gas Range.  The additions of both a morning room off from the kitchen, and a sunroom that opens off of French doors with their vintage copper weather stripping, both usher in additional western sun, plus offer unimpeded views to the landscaped yard and park behind.  The second floor boasts more original craftsmanship, plus a Cape Cod retreat of a four piece bathroom with stand alone tub and glass shower, plus three large bedrooms, one of which has access to both a walk-in dressing room and also to the elevated rear balcony.  The bright, triple dormered attic has been turned into fashionable and flexible loft space by the addition of a ductless split heat pump system, and more craftsman details mixed with period fixtures.  Even the basement has great style, useable space and potential, as there are potlights galore and a bright laundry with farm sink and fresh full bath combo.  Add a bedroom and/or a rec-room if you like by adding the flooring of your choice.  Enjoy the charm of this handsome Edwardian residence, the proximity to the LRT, Universities and all of Uptown Waterloo's conveniences, plus the exciting Silver Lake expansion, just steps off the property.
