The outside has both a deck off the kitchen and pantry/bar room along with a covered pergola and hanging outdoor bed, the space is great for entertaining. There is a single car old school well-built garage with attic storage and an additional storage room in the back. This wonderful home was built in 1965 which was added to the original 1948 bungalow that was approx. 480 sq. ft. and had 3 rooms. There are still some upgrades and finishing that could be done, yet the home is move-in ready. The basement has a bedroom and bathroom along with a canning/preserve room and cold cellar/wine. Large utility/laundry room with a separate back door entrance. A spacious rec room with bonus lounge area and storage area. This older home has loads of character and has been well maintained; ready for another business and or family. With a huge very private fenced backyard, there is ample room for badminton, fire pits, etc. or an ice rink in the winter. Picnic areas, nice cobblestone pathways and hidden vignettes around every corner. The southwest corner of the property has a designated aviary area for migratory and local birds, a delightful seasonal observation area from the dining room windows. There are many heirloom fruit trees & berries throughout the backyard, along with a potting shed and a fenced 24X40 sustainable garden for people who are mindful about planting and harvesting their own food and herbs (also a cold room in the basement for root vegetables). The garden has road access through two 8-foot gates. The backyard has alley access and the fence line includes two 8 foot-wide gates for possible RV parking. The front yard has an 8-foot gate for loading wood for the fireplace. The front yard has raised beds full of flowering perennials-easy care. Lots of deciduous colourful mature trees protect the home from seasonal road dust and they offer lots of shade during hot summer days. During the winter the trees become a beautiful stemmed architectual feature throughout the property and allows for loads of sunlight to stream into the home throughout the long winter months. The backyard was home to 8 free-run/range very happy hens for ten years. Their sleeping quarters consisted of a clean 8x10 insulated very large coop and they had access to an outdoor fenced and covered run during the snowy winter months. These areas will make great out door sheds. The property has 3 lots, of which the house sits on two. The empty lot could be sold, or a building built to accommodate a small business, or a carriage house, or a huge garage and workshop. The property comes with a monitored alarm system and a 24 hour monitored security camera system indoors and out. Walking distance to downtown, three blocks from the Nechako rivers walking path, a dog park one block away, and a huge family park all within walking distance. Quiet neighborhood, close to elementary and high schools and bus routes. The area is geat for biking everywhere. Lots of street parking with two on-property driveways one in front of garage and one in front of garden, used when street snow removal is in effect during the winter. A perfect family home & property in a heritage neighbourhood close to all amenities. Furnishing could be negotiated into the price.
