Welcome to Wilkes Avenue.
You may not have heard of Wilkes Avenue and that would be understandable since it is a street of only 6 homes. This neighbourhood only includes Kenworth Drive and Wilkes, so it's quiet, tranquil and lovely.
Built in 1956, this brick bungalow is set amongst other well-maintained homes, mature trees and generous sized properties. The property is fantastic! Measuring 53’ x 153’, you'll find a gorgeous backyard complete with a raised deck, concrete patio (with gazebo) and loads of lawn and garden space.
Step inside and you’ll find a home that you can unpack and move right into. The main floor has been completely transformed, starting with the removal of the wall between the kitchen and living room. Features include engineered hardwood floors, fully renovated kitchen, gas fireplace in the living room and stylish tile in the foyer and kitchen area.
The bathroom was tastefully renovated and had a skylight added to bring in the natural light. Note: skylight and roof shingles were replaced in 2016. Previously 3 bedrooms, the 3rd bedroom was converted many years ago into the dining room as well. The 2 bedrooms on the main floor are both a comfortable size with new carpet just installed.
Back to the kitchen area, you'll love the easy access to the deck from updated sliding patio doors. BBQ season (which, for what it's worth, is 12 months of the year!) will be easy! The deck, patio and yard are big enough to host a large gathering of friends and family too. You'll love it back there!
The basement level has a large L-shaped recroom with a wood stove there to warm up the winter months. As well there is another room (currently used as a guest bedroom) and 3-piece bathroom.
If you enjoy a stroll to the park, the path to Pearson Park is only a few minutes stroll as well. Put this one on your list!
Notable updates & improvements include:
Furnace, central air, roof shingles, skylight, flooring, kitchen, bathrooms, lighting, trim, breaker panel and more.
