Century Home in UpTown Waterloo/North Ward at 372 Wellington Street North

372 Wellington Street NorthWe just listed this spacious century home in one of my favourite neighbourhoods – real estate area 0114 – UpTown Waterloo/North Ward. This beautiful home sits on a large lot – 40 feet wide by 165 feet deep. I love these old inner-city properties. Nowadays, developers would likely squish three, maybe four homes on the same sized lot. With a large lot, you get lots of yard, lots of parking and room for a shed and a big deck. Who doesn’t love having a big deck? The yard is fully fenced.

 

Great House

Built in 1914 this great old home features original hardwood floors and natural trim. There is lots of space with three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a two person soaker tub), a formal living room, a separate dining room, a large eat in kitchen and main floor office space. There is even a walk-up to the attic.

Location 

372 Wellington Street North is an easy walk to the new Kitchener Public Library, Centre in the Square, the Kitchener Market, the Tannery, Breithaupt Block and Victoria Park. The train station is nearby and that means this home will be in an excellent position to take advantage of upcoming transportation hub and LRT.

Updated and improved

372 Wellington has a new furnace and central air (2012), soffits, fascia and front porch 2013. It is almost completely carpet free and has ample room for living, working, entertaining, hobbies, and storage. It is a great house and I’m not just saying that because I’m selling it. I live in a house very similar to it in UpTown Waterloo.

 

Special Features

1) I think the two person soaker tub in the oversized bathroom is a really nice place to escape to when life get hectic or at the end of the day, whichever comes first.

2) The country kitchen is a great size for a growing family, or if you like entertaining.

3) The yard is your own private dog park and kids playground. It is a country sized lot in the city.

4) The location is central to most everything – entertainment, shopping, work, transportation and nightlife. This neighbourhood, I think, will appreciate at a better than average rate.

Where is Beechwood Forest? Is it a good neighbourhood?

stoke Drive, Beechwood ForestQ: Where is Beechwood Forest? Is it a good neighbourhood?

A: Yes it is. Come see for yourself this weekend at our OPEN HOUSE at 197 Stoke Drive.

The neighbourhood lines on the map, no matter where you seem to be in Waterloo Region are blurred. Where does Westmount end and UpTown begin, for example, or Clair Hills and Columbia Forest? But what does it matter anyway, as long as you are near a good school, in a neighbourhood that is appreciating (and appreciated) and that you have a comfortable and happy home?

Where is Beechwood Forest? Is it a good neighbourhood?

Beechwood Forest is often overlooked. It is not Beechwood and it’s not Beechwood West. it is not even that close to either. Built in the early to mid 1980’s, the neighbourhood is beside where Fischer Road joined with Hallman Road, forming the very important Fischer-Hallman Road, north to Laurel Creek Conservation Area and south to the Conestoga Parkway.

Beechwood Forest is nestled between the Henry Sturm Creek and the Detweiler Creek, which join a little further on, just past the Fenwick Green at the Filsinger Park before eventually feeding into Victoria Lake near downtown Kitchener. When you’re driving up Fischer-Hallman, past Victoria Street, you drive down into a valley. On your left is Monarch Park and then Stoke Drive, the entrance to Beechwood Forest. The location is excellent. It is quiet and hidden, and interesting topographically, yet near public transpiration, shopping and great schools. Both Sandhills Public School and St Dominic Savio Catholic School are very highly rated. You can shop at all of the stores along Ira-Needles Boulevard or Highland Road West. My office is at 370 Highland Road West, a fact important to me and hopefully you too.

There are lots of trails and parks in the Beechwood Forest neighbourhood.
