Beautiful freehold semi-detached house with a legal in-law suite. The house is in excellent shape, and you’d be hard pressed to find something that would need work, as it has had so many upgrades already.
The main floor is open-plan with lots of windows and natural daylight (especially sunshine); a new powder room has been built near the front door, a recently installed white Ikea kitchen with many extra cupboards and drawers. There are stainless steel appliances: a 27.8 cu ft Frigidaire French door fridge, Maytag convection stove with five expanding elements and a dishwasher (both under warranty); the large Panasonic microwave (above the stove) has direct venting to outside. There is a tiled floor at the front and back entrance doors and in the kitchen; and a refinished wooden floor in the living room. Excellent LED lighting on this floor.
There are three bedrooms upstairs and two full bathrooms, each with a new elongated Kohler low-flow toilet and updated plumbing. Recessed LED lighting in the master/mistress bedroom and two very large sliding door closets. There are two other bedrooms, each with a nice window giving plenty of natural light, and also with sliding door closets.
A legal in-law suite has been built in the basement just over two years ago and the large window makes it very bright during the daytime, and there are lots of LED recessed lights. There is a newly built bathroom with a shower and new Kohler low-flow toilet and Ikea kitchen with a new full-size fridge, a countertop induction cooker, microwave and toaster oven. Insulation added to the electrical room, which helps keep the apartment warm. This area could be rented out, offered to visiting family members (so everyone could enjoy some privacy), a home office, or a hang-out for teenagers or play room! Also ideal to rent out to help with the mortgage.
A new Lennox gas furnace and air conditioner and a 50-gallon gas hot water heater purchased and installed two years ago by a reputable Ottawa company, Home Service Group, who also services these appliances regularly and they are also covered by a warranty. Additional attic insulation and a tall vent were installed in 2015, and a new quality roof was completely redone in 2016 by Worry Free Roofing.
There is an excellent front-loading Maytag washer and dryer and an 8 ft Crossley chest freezer in the well-lit furnace room. These items are covered by a warranty.
Schlage keypad entry on both front and back doors and new brushed steel doorknobs everywhere. There is an alarm system installed as well as a rough-in for a central vacuum system in the wall.
Canada Post delivers mail delivered directly to mail box at the front door and not to a community mailbox – such a treat!
The small backyard has new interlocking patio stones, making it very low maintenance, and the double fence makes it rather private. There is parking for two cars behind the house; snow removal costs are $420 for the season; property taxes are a bit under $3,300 per annum.
This is a very convenient location for shopping (closest stores at Carlingwood Shopping Centre and Fairlawn Plaza), enjoying the local parks, a very short walk to two elementary schools and the Carlingwood library, the river parkway, churches of various denominations, and several bus routes going directly downtown, uOttawa, Carleton University and Algonquin College. Approximately a six-minute walk to the new Confederation train station that is being built just down the road, at Woodroffe and Richmond Road
It is situated almost opposite the Carlingwood library and Carlingwood Shopping Centre, and just a few minutes to walk to Fairlawn Plaza and very close to the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway (a Sunday morning bike path during summertime) and the Queensway ramp. It’s also pet- and smoke-free.
All the window coverings – curtains and white wood-look blinds can remain in the house, and the new electric lawnmower for the grass in front too!
Woodroffe Ave north of Carling on the left hand side.
