This charming character home on a spacious 30x120 lot exudes curb appeal. Located on one of the best streets in sought-after Hillhurst, it’s surrounded by mature trees and faces a median full of lilac bushes. As you approach the home, you’ll immediately notice the beautiful south-facing front porch, fully rebuilt on screw piles, and a stunning upper balcony boasting downtown views. Inside, the home offers architectural charm combined with modern updates and amenities. The living room has a beautiful fireplace and original window casings, and flows into a dining area with plentiful natural light. There’s a convenient home office located off the dining room, and a sunny kitchen nook overlooking the backyard. A tastefully updated full bathroom completes the main floor. Upstairs, you’ll find a spacious master bedroom, a stunning picture window and balcony access, as well as two additional bedrooms. A restored clawfoot tub adds a special touch to the fully renovated double sink main bathroom. In the basement, a separate entrance leads to an illegal suite with a living room, kitchen, laundry, and bedroom, making this a perfect option for an income suite or Airbnb rentals, or could easily be converted back to your lower living space. The generous backyard has been nicely landscaped and offers a fenced quiet retreat from the city. Updates to the property include a 25x22 garage (2011), new electrical work (2009), a new roof (2012) and new sewer liner (2022), both front porches rebuilt (2015). The pipes have been updated to PEX, and there are two recent egress windows in the basement. Downtown, the Bow River pathway system, Kensington, and Queen Elizabeth K-12 schools are within easy walking distance of this lovely heritage home.
