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