Authentic brick beauties like this represent the best of Big Old Berlin, and examples this close to Kitchener’s core are hard to come by! Add in flexible D-6 zoning and this home becomes a great opportunity for a wide cross-section of prospective buyers. Old home enthusiasts, business owners and downtown residents alike will be sure to cherish (or regret - should this opportunity pass them by) an opportunity to purchase a prized piece of Waterloo Region history. This home has charm in spades, and the updates in the interior are numerous. Gleaming hardwood floors illuminate your path throughout the principal rooms and hallways on the main floor, and you’ll find three well-proportioned bedrooms (including a massive 21x12 finished loft) and second floor den up above. The ergonomic kitchen has been thoughtfully redone with impressively tall cabinetry completed in the classic fashion, but with additional pull out drawers and a rough-in for a dishwasher as well. You will also find a rare main floor powder room with a rough-in for a laundry tucked away in the linen closet. Plus, the garage is framed for a full sized car and, though the backyard is not massive, the landscaping is lovely and makes for a serene spot to spend warm weather evenings. Painstaking efforts have been taken to maintain this home which lives up to the original stylistic vision of its creators, while still having three and a half bathrooms all of which makes this a very rare find in this modern day.
