The Story

Full disclosure, this is my own house. And further disclosure, selling your own house is weird. What I will say is that we're very sad to be selling. We're excited for the next chapter, but we've LOVED living here. This neighbourhood, in my opinion, is criminally underrated among family neighbourhoods in Waterloo. We're going to miss our neighbours desperately. Massive lots and lovely people. What more could you want? Well, let's see. I'll start with the lot, which covers the majority of a corner on a very quiet family crescent. Beautifully landscaped with lush gardens. The massive deck (480 square feet) has just been freshly re-faced with new boards in a picture frame design with a diagonal board pattern. A beautiful mix of sun and shade through the day and evening, and you won't believe the privacy the mature trees provide. The house itself has been a real labour of love for us as we've worked to put our own stamp on it. Updated luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout most of the main floor of the house (2020). New railing in the front foyer to the upper and lower level (2020). Renovated kitchen with hexagonal backsplash, quartz counters, Blanco silgranit sink, and Blanco fixture and breakfast bar (2020). Counter-depth fridge and stove just new in August 2021 (both are apparently wifi, the stove has an airfry setting. Both confuse and scare me, I'm too old), Dishwasher earlier this year. Updated light fixtures throughout most of the house. The living room is enormous, thanks to a thoughtful addition done by the previous owner in 1988, with a full excavation below to increase the square footage above and below grade. One of the bedrooms is perfect for an office, just off the kitchen with enormous windows and light all day. The basement is fully finished with a giant rec room, 4th bedroom for guests, a stylish 2 piece bath with shiplap, and tons of storage. Come see it for yourself, our loss will be your gain. And we want to put nice people in here for our nice neighbours.
