Nestled on a peaceful one block long street; right in between the coveted neighborhoods of Uptown Waterloo and Westmount, sits this cute red brick home on a spreading 50 by 130 foot lot. Perfectly move in ready, with many updated windows and a refreshed rural European style eat-in kitchen, 72 Hillcrest overlooks a large fenced rear yard which boasts maturing gardens and places to play, plus a perfect perch for a hammock. There is also a main floor den that works as a guest bedroom (without a closet) or maybe even as a formal dining room overlooking the yard. The oversized picture window in the front living room offers an alternative focal point from the natural gas fireplace and its flanking bookshelves. Upstairs, the master bedroom has two closets plus a cozy reading nook set off beside the dormer window. This level’s main bath is also shared by another bedroom with hardwood floors and extra storage. The basement offers an additional spot to unwind in front a fireplace hearth, plus an additional two piece powder room – perfect for handling business during a commercial break. So much natural beauty and urban convenience that you'll probably appreciate what you see after peeking over the crest of this hill!
