About This Property

It is highly unlikely that you have seen such a large lot adjacent to Exhibition Park—ever. A historic stone cottage on it sweetens the experience even more.
The appeal of such a property is magnified by virtue of the fact that it is flanked with the CNR spur line rail trail and a large swath of green space to go with it. All this equals unrivalled privacy.

A great deal of history here! Author Jean Little’s grandfather was the stone mason of this home, built in 1898. Inside this stone cottage, you’ll find quaintness abundant where a wonderful couple have called this home since the Centennial. Along the way, they have made improvements, some as recent as last year (New roof 2017). Over the years, windows have been updated, a Lennox High efficiency furnace installed (6 years) and an owned On Demand Hot Water Heater installed (3 years). Hardwood floors, Harthex wood insert, another gas fireplace, a sweet “corner office”, an additional loft bedroom, and a surprisingly large and tall basement for storage round out the offering.

At the back of this expansive treed lot, stands a garage/shop structure that was built with permit decades ago, and awaits a decision of the new owner for it’s future – garage, shop or removal.
With a property as generous as this one, there will be SO many exciting options to consider and opportunities to be explored. Your imagination awaits!
