I have sold a property at 452 12 STREET NW in Calgary.
One of the original houses built in Hillhurst, this beautifully renovated home is a local landmark, right in the heart of one of the best neighborhoods in Calgary. Move in and one of your first experiences will be to sit on the wide front porch and greet all your new neighbours as they walk by with their kids on their way to Riley Park. Welcome. The house has been renovated in a loving way, with a perfect balance of period details and contemporary finishes and features. The generous kitchen has clean lines and lots of counterspace. You can enjoy cooking a meal while enjoying the company of your family in the large central room across the island. This space is the heart of the home with room for a harvest table and a sitting area in front of the wood burning fireplace. For a more formal experience there is also a traditional dining room and front sitting room where you can curl up with a good book. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all bright and airy, and a full contemporary bathroom. The primary bedroom has a refined, spa like ensuite bathroom, a generous walk-in closet and large windows open to the east light in the morning. Add in the built-in library shelves and you have an efficient, well detailed second floor. In addition to the laundry and storage areas, the lower level includes a bedroom and a full bathroom. With its separate side entrance, this space is perfect for special guests or a grumpy teenager. The front yard is a constant display of colourful blooms throughout the spring and summer. It is on many neighbour dog walking routes as people are always stopping to chat and admire the display. The rear yard is well landscaped and includes a lower deck for outdoor entertaining. The space is comfortable and inviting as the yard side of the two-car garage is designed to enhance the cozy feel of the space. There is much more that can be said about the quality and thoughtfulness of this house and its design details, but the best way to truly appreciate it is to come see it for yourselves. It will not be available for long.
