Have you heard about a little cul de sac named Riverview ave? Which is located off circular road across from the amazing bannerman park? Well I hadn't before I got the call to list this one. I was enthralled by the peacefulness and seclusion away from the hustle and bustle of center city as soon as I turned onto the street. One tree of many on the property specifically drew me to it as I'm sure it is what children's story books try to capture. The lot is large and can accommodate another out building if wanted or possibly another lot (check survey). The history is incredible with this home and property, it does have heritage status and was originally built for and lived in by Sir William Whiteway once the Prime Minister of NL *prior to confederation. The grandeur of the home needs to be seen to be appreciated, the exquisite wood work from the hardwood stairs and flooring to the large ceiling height doors separating rooms. This home can allow incredible space to raise a family of any size with 5 bedroom and not one of them being small and 2 full baths and a half bath. Many upgrades have been done over the years to help modernize however respecting the original structure. An addition of a sunroom at the back of the kitchen which has allowed the a lovely view of the private backyard, having laundry on the main floor is proven to be very helpful and having 2 lined working fireplaces hits a high ambient note. (Family room and Livingroom). With a home of this age I am still surprised to see that an ensuite and walk in closet were thought of as well as an upstairs foyer leading out to a deck which can be used to sit on an enjoy or as an extra fire escape. Don't miss this rare opportunity and contact your agent today for a private viewing. (id:1704)
