The Story

What could be better than a 2 storey red brick, in Guelph’s most “up and coming” neighbourhood?! How about one that’s not only a charming place to call home but also a thriving homestead – a double lot transformed into an urban farm with raised beds for vegetables, a variety of fruit trees, and berry bushes, as well as large perennial beds for the pollinators! Surrounded by large old trees, charming older houses, and amazing neighbours you’re only a few minutes walk from the Eramosa river trails, which can take you towards downtown or out of town altogether. Heading northwest along Lawrence Avenue, you’ll find some of the best food, drink, and entertainment this city has to offer! To top it all off, being southeast of downtown it’s a quick jaunt along Victoria Road to the University of Guelph, or out along York and then Guelph Line to the 401. Inside, this beautiful home has been lovingly and tastefully updated over the years, including (but not limited to) refinished original floors (2016 and 2020), new fridge and stove (2020), new furnace (2019), a combined washer-dryer (2020), as well as refurbished and painted walls and ceilings throughout.
