Anything but a drive-by, this is a special spot tucked just off Queen Street North in Kitchener’s Civic Centre historical district. This home has an abnormally large lot (with potential for severance and another home down the road), but this cozy house itself is as pretty as can be and finished to the nines! There’s a covered front porch that’s been closed off into a handy mud room, which in turn steps into the open-to-above foyer and staircase with massive windows shining down. A handy powder room lies tucked in off the front foyer – making for a convenient last stop before a road trip! The fire-lit dining room looks out through a large picture window with stained glass transom a-top, and also through a large opening into the cozy family room with built in cabinetry. The kitchen is much more than you could ask for with loads of counter space, stainless appliances, exposed brick detailing and a convenient door out to the private back yard and patio space (also to the detached workshop with power). The top floor is loaded with light thanks to huge windows and tall ceilings, while pine floors exude that old world charm. The main bath is both practical and pretty, with built in laundry, separate tub and shower, and plenty of storage. This is proof that you don't have to give up on freehold ownership - you can do this (and in style).
