We purchased a two story home in Hamilton’s Gage Park district on Ottawa Street South almost two months ago. A beautiful neighbourhood graced by mature trees at the base of the escarpment and only a short walk from Gage park and the lively Ottawa Street and its shops and Farmer’s Market. The home was nicely kept but in need of mechanical and aesthetic updates to bring it into the Twenty-First Century.
This home will have all new wiring and electrical panel with a new and efficient furnace and air conditioner. The house will feature refinished and stained hardwood floors, new ceramic tiles in the newly open-concept kitchen, fully renovated upper four-piece bath and in the newly created two-piece bath in the basement. This home has retained its beautifully maintained original wood trim through-out with pocket-doors between the living room and dining room with the original beamed wood feature on the dining room ceiling. The dark wood trim extends around the windows and is enhanced with the staircase. The upper floor and basement will be laid in Berber carpet to quell the upper noise and warm the feet in the basement. A large recreation room and laundry room will complete the convenience of the lower-level with its own grade level entrance.
The home will feature mostly new drywall through out and a fully refinished kitchen with new cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. It has a deep 115 foot by 30 foot lot with a side drive and detached workshop/garage. A large, covered front porch and large open back deck will provide plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing. This will be a wonderful and affordable home for any family that appreciates value, quality, convenience and a truly wonderful neighbourhood with access to shops, large retailers and the highway and city expressways. Pictures of this home are to come upon completion.
