You can actually buy an updated family home in the charming East Ward, without any further work needed - Case in point, 40 Chestnut. So many updates and so much care, with such a lovely tree-lined street canopy that you’d figure you were in a Canadian Tire commercial. The Chestnut streetscape is a sight to behold, with unique design characteristics in each and every home, further highlighted by the intricate brick details showcasing a craftsmanship that is rarely seen today. Enter off the sunset covered front porch through a new front door to the welcoming foyer, which offers access to the bright fire-lit living room with extra flanking upper windows. From here, continue on through and into the endearing dining room with another wide transom window. The kitchen is updated with extensive quartz counters, ample cute cabinetry and a stainless appliance set, the highlight of which is a gas range. Just off the mud room, you will step out to a multi-tiered deck with hot tub and stairs and down to a sizeable fenced yard and elevated garage/shop, with extra storage beneath. There is also a fully finished basement with a gorgeous full bath, that compliments the lovely top floor main bath with its heated floors and details galore that services the three upper bedrooms, including the rear bedroom that offers access to a second story balcony, and also the freshly finished third storey loft/zen den. Factor in a ton of updated windows and a brand new roof, and you could be counting your lucky stars on this impressive back deck this summer.
