I have sold a property at 423 11 AVENUE NE in Calgary.
INCREDIBLE CHARACTER HOME (CIRCA 1910) WITH A MIX OF JUST THE RIGHT UPDATES AND MUCH OF ITS ORIGINAL CHARM FOR SALE – CHECK OUT THE FULL VIDEO AND 360 INTERACTIVE VIRTUAL TOURS. Just an incredible find in the fantastic community of Renfrew exuding charming character yet has all the right updates and touches. Inviting and quaint, this home is nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street with a large front porch overlooking the fully landscaped, low-maintenance front yard. The open-concept front living room has a large bright bay window flooding the home with warm, natural light. This room flows nicely into the dining area where you’ll find an original brick fireplace and updated light fixtures. You’ll also notice the gorgeous original Douglas Fir hardwood floors stretching throughout most of the home. Head into the fully remodeled kitchen and you’ll find a sophisticated and modern look and feel. The high-gloss tall cabinets have plenty of storage and you’ll love the Blanco granite sink and marble backsplash, along with the brick feature wall. The counters are a mix of butcher block and restaurant grade stainless steel (sourced from an Edmonton Cineplex Odeon makeover). Head further back into a back entryway/mudroom and incredibly stylish three-piece bathroom, all on stunning new tile with in-floor heat throughout. This bathroom boasts a custom-made vanity made from reclaimed wood from the home’s original subfloor and a Carrera marble countertop acquired from Toronto’s iconic BMO building after its façade famously broke off. Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms including a master bedroom with built-in closet and private balcony. The rear bedroom is carpeted for extra warmth and includes new sliding glass doors opening up to a rear, south-facing balcony with city views. As well, the bathroom has an authentic clawfoot bathtub, updated vanity, and new window. Head down to the developed basement that includes a newly carpeted, large family room and a storage/laundry room with shelving and polished concrete floors. Step out the back door and you’ll find a large cedar deck with a built-in lounger and covered BBQ area, perfect for outdoor living and entertaining. The deck steps down to a beautifully landscaped yard with mature trees and shrubs in the flowerbeds lining the yard, as well as a stone patio and walkway that wraps around to the front of the house. There’s a single car garage out back with all it’s original character yet has been updated with a new roof, garage door and automatic opener. Additional upgrades to this home within the last 10 years include: updates to the main floor plumbing and electrical, furnace including humidifier, attic insulation and various new windows throughout. Walking distance to many shops, restaurants, amenities and the Renfrew Athletic Park, as well as quick access to Deerfoot, the Bow River and pathway system and into downtown, you’ll absolutely love this location.
