Once upon a time I did a purchase of a home in London, Ontario for good friends that relocated from Hamilton because of a job transfer. Having been familiar with London as a place I visited in my youth because of family friends, I was excited to see London`s Real Estate market. London is similar in age to Hamilton and Toronto with mature tree lined streets, classic, 18th and early 19th Century architecture, a classic downtown strip and a long established university. Long established in London are neighbourhoods, a city with history and neighbourhoods with character and architecture to match. 128 Mount Pleasant Avenue is in such a neighborhood, the Blackfriars (Home of the Famous Blackfriars Street Bridge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackfriars_Street_Bridge), is a short walk to the downtown core and about 25 minutes to the University of Western Ontario.
I was impressed when I first walked into this home neigh on three years ago, but now, the owners have transformed this home to the most lovely of condition. The home has had the upper floor removed of carpet and refinished to it`s natural wood splendor. This home could suit a couple or of a family. Four bedrooms and a large lower bedroom with two baths make this home very livable. The dining room is large enough for family gatherings and the lush back garden is deep enough for late evening camp fires, sports, play and the family dog, fenced and private.
Mature trees in a mature neighbourhood, shopping is all close by and the long, stamped concrete drive accent this home wonderfully with convenience to load the groceries from the car to either back or front doors. The kitchen is modern with newer cupboards and stainless appliances with room to prepare family meals. A look through the kitchen window and that beautiful back yard beacons...Dinner in the Garden Tonight?
This home is a classic, wide baseboards, crown moldings, French door, and beautiful Hardwood Floors. This is old world craftsmanship, Arts and Crafts but with all newer windows, air conditioned, insulated, solid and a dry basement with good height and newer electrics. This home must be seen to be truly appreciated. Quaint, classic and accented with Boston Ivy...It has curb appeal, spacious and wonderful.
