Elegance, history and location come together in this rare opportunity for a stunning 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 4 level home in Kingston’s Sydenham Ward. Just a block from the park separating Sydenham Ward from Queen’s University campus and KGH – for those who are looking for a downtown location, this is simply as good as it gets with an easy stroll to restaurants, cafes and shopping as well as to campus, parks and Kingston’s downtown waterfront.
This beautiful 3 storey + finished lower level brick and limestone townhome, complete with one of Kingston’s historic carriage way entrances to the rear courtyard, is the perfect blend of charm and functionality. Gorgeous hardwood flooring on three floors, exposed limestone and custom milled pine flooring (installed in 2018) in the lower level kitchen (new in 2018) and family room, are just some of the highlights this spectacular property has to offer.
The lower level patio doors to the back courtyard create an easy and natural flow for outdoor entertaining and dining to a BBQ area and part of the upper courtyard could easily become parking for one or two vehicles by converting the existing fence separating the courtyard from the carriage way, to a sliding gate. The bright lower level also has a gas stove which makes for cozy days and nights, all through the year.
The main floor living and dining rooms with large, bright windows, high ceilings and gleaming hardwood have all the classic sophistication of the grand Kingston homes of the late 1800s and plenty of room for entertaining.
The main bedroom on the second floor has a very large attached dressing room with wall to wall closets and laundry. The second floor bath, with marble tile in-floor heating and marble counter top with two sinks, is bright and spacious. The other bedroom on the second floor and 3 additional rooms on the third floor provide great spaces to be used as more bedrooms, offices, libraries, music rooms or whatever suits your fancy.
A substantial amount of plaster and painting work has been completed over the past few years as well as new floor tile in the front entrance, refinished floors on the top level, the kitchen with granite countertops and appliances were new in 2018, many new lights throughout the home and pointing and masonry work to the back of the building and the carriageway.
This one of a kind home is ready for you and there is nothing left to do, other than to call it your own.
