An updated four-bedroom, two-bathroom century home in Lambeth.

The Details

Just off of Main Street in Lambeth, there’s a gorgeous, 3,300-square-foot yellow-brick century home, with blue shutters and a blue porch, on a rare half-acre lot, waiting for a buyer.

Originally built in 1900, this home has all that old-world charm ― exposed beams, custom millwork in much of the trim and gorgeous original hardwood flooring, all of which has been well maintained and not, like many other homes, hidden behind modern amenities. Which isn’t to say the house hasn’t been freshened up over the years. Fresh design choices and modern upgrades give this place an old-meets-new aura.

The main living room ― officially a “parlour room” ― at the front of the house features a charming fireplace (the first of several), original floors and lots of natural light, creating a warm and inviting space for the family to hang out.

The kitchen, towards the back of the house, features a rustic and unique stone backsplash, beautiful custom cabinetry and modern stainless appliances, including a large gas stove. The kitchen also includes a large central island, offering substantial workspace, and leathered antique granite countertops. Across the kitchen, which is separated by large exposed beams, you’ll find a pantry area, with the home’s large double-wide fridge and extra counter and cabinet space. There’s a small breakfast nook off the side of the kitchen as well.

Towards the rear of the main level you’ll find a large formal dining room, featuring another fireplace, this one with a large hearth in front. And just off to the side of the dining room, you’ll find an impressive family room, with panoramic views of the backyard via sliding doors and windows on two walls, and plenty of space for large sectionals, couches or whatever other furniture you want to include here. And it’s just steps away from the backyard pool patio.

The upper-level bedrooms each have unique features that make them a lot more functional than your standard bedroom. The first bedroom has a fireplace, a small nook off to the side, and lots of room for a desk and other furniture. The second bedroom on the second level is a little cozier, but still oozes charm. The third bedroom, the primary suite, will be a hot commodity in this house: a loft-style oasis from the rest of the house, the bedroom is accessed via a small flight of stairs that lands you in a lovely private zone, with a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, a small desk or reading nook and two closets on either side of the room. Also on the upper level is a well-appointed bathroom with a custom shower stall and large clawfoot bathtub.

Downstairs you’ll find a finished basement space, complete with a home gym and a large laundry room. There’s also a fourth and final bedroom on this level, plus storage and workshop space

The backyard oasis is a great place to host family and friends, with lush landscaping, a hot tub and a large deck, all revolving around a stylish inground pool. There’s plenty of shaded areas built in, a wood fence that surrounds the backyard, bar-style seating and landscaping features throughout the backyard. There’s also a small pool house. Off the backyard, there’s a heated garage/coach house that offers lots of space for parking, or for more creative uses as a studio or workshop ― you could even build in an additional loft space up top.

All of it, and the setting just off of Main Street in Lambeth, makes for a great combination of history and modern finishes. And to boot, it’s located on a large green lot that gives your family lots of space to make use of.

The Tour

Big Selling Point

It could be the style and authentic charms, or the backyard paradise, or the four fireplaces ― but it’s probably the loft-style bedroom that will make your friends jealous.
