Are you emotionally attached to your home? It’s not surprising if you are as it’s so much more than bricks and mortar – it’s where you’ve put your own stamp on the surroundings, where you’ve made memories and where you rest your head after busy days. So imagine how brave it is to make a decision to sell your home when you’ve lived there most of your life.
Such is the case in this affordably priced, 4 bedroom home. After 52 years, the present owner has decided it’s time for a new family to take root in this happy home and make it their own. Located in the center of Collingwood, this two storey century home at 197 Peel Street sits on an extra large lot and is well located in an area of recently renovated homes close to hospital, school, YMCA, medical centre and not far from the downtown core.
While it is perfectly liveable as is, this home is ready for updating, minor repair and modernization. It’s seemingly very solid, level and has “good bones” as they say so it would be a worthwhile project for someone looking for a large home that they can renovate over time. Over the years, updates have already included a new gas furnace (2013), aluminum fascia and window ledge capping and, windows (2007).
Inside, you’ll find hardwood floors, high baseboards and original wood trim, spacious principal rooms and 4 bedrooms all upstairs, plus a main floor den. The enclosed front porch just needs insulation and walls completed to add additional living space. Most of the rooms are surprisingly spacious and one of the features I love is that every bedroom has two, deep windows.
Priced at just $374,900, this is a real opportunity for someone that enjoys updating and decorating and, values the charm of an older home. Have a look at the property website for more photos and then give me a call to arrange your viewing.
