1106 Trafalgar Street: $549,900 for a centrally located all-brick century home
Address: 1106 Trafalgar Street
Neighbourhood: The Smokestack District
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
A centrally located three-bedroom, two-bathroom century home.
At a price point like this, beautiful brick century homes don’t come around too often, and this three-bed, two-bath house on Trafalgar Street, built in 1918, is a great example of a classic London home.
From the curb, its charm is immediately apparent: it has a large covered porch overlooking a small front yard, with a driveway and detached garage along the side of the house. Step inside, and you get more of the same: classic wood floors run throughout much of the house, while the occasional flash of exposed brick or wood beam lends a heritage feel.
The living room at the front of the house features a gas fireplace, large front window that looks out over the porch and plenty of space for a TV and furniture. Next to the living room is a formal dining room, and towards the rear of the house an addition has been built that is perfect for use as a sunroom or small den, leading right out to the backyard.
The kitchen here offers plenty of counter space, with neutral cabinetry that provides lots of storage. The flooring in the kitchen has been updated to include easy-to-maintain hardwood-style flooring, and the faucets and fixtures have all been updated. Appliance-wise, the kitchen includes a fridge, dishwasher and a gas stove. The kitchen itself is arranged in two halves, giving you lots of flexibility in terms of additions or design and layout.
Rounding out the main floor, you have one of the home’s two full bathrooms ― this one with a classic clawfoot tub with shiplap walls and updated finishes.
Upstairs, the home has three bedrooms, all a bit cozy ― century home, after all ― but with more storage than you might expect in such an old home. Also on this level is the second full bathroom, which has also been updated with new flooring, new finishes and a walk-in shower.
Downstairs you have a partially finished basement with two rooms providing a range of potential uses: home office, rec room, home gym or fourth bedroom. There’s also an unfinished portion, home to the laundry unit, and which offers lots of storage and work space.
This home also has a sizeable fenced-in backyard, with lots of greenspace and landscaping along the perimeter. It’s got mature trees, to provide some shade in the summer as well ― a great little backyard for families who like to spend time outside. And finally, though it’s an older home, lots of work has gone into it over the years, with a new tankless water heater, a new gas furnace, air conditioning and updated plumbing and wiring all having been completed within the last eight years.
