Character and history abound at this classic red brick 4 bed 3 bath family home. Retaining the original charm of yesteryear, this stately home showcases the architectural elements of its time period, yet offers the peace of mind of up to date mechanicals. Located on one of the most prestigious streets in town, it's situated on a mature 83 x 153 ft park-like lot. Entering from the covered veranda, you are greeted with the grand wood staircase, around which flows ample space for entertaining guests in the formal dining area and parlour with gas fireplace, a newly renovated powder room and another sitting area with pocket doors to the updated eat-in kitchen (making it easy to keep an eye on the kids while cooking!). From here there is access to the gorgeous private backyard oasis with a huge deck, new pergola lounge area, playhouse with swing set, flower and veggie gardens, utility shed and THE CUTEST fully finished, insulated shed with electrical service, heater and WIFI capability that would make a perfect studio, get-away space or even home office! Oh, wait: did I also mention the INGROUND HEATED POOL? It's just had a brand new pump installed and is ready for you to hit the diving board and start making some fantastic memories this summer! Back inside, the second floor has room for a growing family, with three generous sized bedrooms, a bright, freshly renovated 4 piece bath for the kids and then ANOTHER recently finished full bath with a classic claw-foot soaker tub, separate shower stall and a unique, antique dresser turned-custom vanity. At the end of the hall you'll find the second story open balcony, where you can relax and get a birds-eye view of town. Up another grand staircase you'll find the loft master suite with walk-in closet and a wall of widows overlooking the pool, yard and beyond. It's the perfect family home, and it's all just steps from the famous Grand River and vibrant core of beautiful downtown Fergus.
