Welcome to 61 Parnell Road
There is a reason why people flock to this end of the city. Great schools, Walkers Creek trail system, the waterfront trail, shopping, all with easy access to Port Dalhousie on one side and Lakeshore Road to Niagara-on-the-Lake on the other.
And great news. 61 Parnell Road offers you all of the above!
Built in 1963, (note brick & stone exterior) this traditional 4-level sidesplit is an ideal family home. With 3+1 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, the layout and functionality offer a nice balance with space for all.
The property, with 60' frontage, is a comfortable size. The carport is easily finished to complete a single-car garage if you'd prefer. Access from the carport brings you into the side of the home leading into the kitchen. As well, a gate from the back of the driveway brings you into the backyard complete with an inground pool, patio with gazebo, lawn area and perennial gardens. The backyard exposure allows for sunny days by the pool all summer long!
Around to the front, you'll enjoy the front porch, the ideal spot for a morning coffee a you see your kids off to school or an evening chat with a friendly neighbour.
Inside the home, you'll find a traditional living, dining and kitchen area on the main floor. You can keep this area 'as is' or as many do these days, open it up to create a modern, open plan main level. Upstairs you'll find 3 bedrooms, with hardwood floors either exposed or under the carpet. The upper bathroom has a jetted soaker tub as well.
Head downstairs and you'll find a few surprises. There is a direct entrance out to the backyard, convenient for the swimmers to access the lower level bathroom. The 4th bedroom, currently used as an office, can be used however you wish. Bedroom, office, craft room...your choice.
The recroom, with 2 large windows, is focussed on the wall-to-wall brick hearth surrounding the updated gas fireplace. This is a warm and comfortable area to enjoy quiet movie nights or watching the Blue Jays on their march to World Series #3!
The lowest level of the home includes a generous sized 3 piece bathroom along with an unfinished storage, utility and laundry area.
This home has been lovingly cared for with major mechanical updates completed.
Major updates include: roof shingles, vinyl windows, furnace & central air, pool liner, 100-amp breaker panel.
