This neighbourhood is composed of a diverse group from professional couples,through young families to retirees. It has been advertised as one of Canada's ten best places to live!!! Steps to lovely Thames Park pool and tennis courts, walk to the Village for a cool one at the local pub or jog to the Red Rooster for your Saturday morning Java. You can do your banking, grocery shopping, dry cleaning, pick up bake goods, have your hair done and much more, all within a quick walk from your front door! Why not enjoy a lazy afternoon exploring all the unique stores in the Village, then pickup a book at the Landon Library and stop for leisurely lunch also. There is a pharmacy here too. The location is minutes away from downtown, liquor and beer store, numerous restaurants, Westmount Mall (London's only mall with underground parking) , Thames walking trails, Mitches Park, video rentals and much more. It's easily accessible to major transportation and the 401 too. If you love to shop you are also a 6 minute drive to one of London's foremost destination malls...White Oaks.If you can't find it close by just has not been invented yet!!! If you thought you would never find a home in Old South with a large lot you will be pleasantly surprised by the back yard of this family home. Set well back from the street with newer sod, concrete drive plus parking pad, siding, windows, shingles, doors, front landscaping, soffits, facia and eaves......WOW. When did these owners ever rest. The curb appeal is further enhanced by exterior lighting and a 2car garage. The backyard is a virtual oasis after a long day. Too bad you could not see this in the summer. With beautiful trees to offer privacy, newer fencing to keep the dogs and kids safe, a super sized sundeck built in 2002 and refinished and stained in 2005, a shed for your garden tools and pool essentials, room for the kids to play.... it is really amazing. The deck has gates so the little ones are safe from the inground 16 by 32 inground concrete pool. Entertaining is a breeze and a pleasure in the summer. You can easily b.b.q for a crowd on this deck!!! The pool has a 5 yr old liner, the pump was reconditioned in 2003, a gas heater added that year also. There is a slide, board and concrete decking. You can enjoy the fruit from your pear and apple trees. All the other trees were professionally trimmed by Davies Tree Service. Once you step inside the foyer you will appreciate the floor plan and freshly painted interior. The floor plan is a form of centre hall plan with the living room on the left and kitchen on the right at the front of the house. The living room opens through a french door and boasts a cozy wood burning fireplace and gorgeous decorative crown molding. There are 2 sets of sunny windows so you have a view of the front yard and back. Lovely hardwood floors add to the ambience. And size is no problem...there is lots of room for all your special pieces. The formal dining room also has hardwood floors as well as a wonderful large window overlooking the yard and built in glass cupboards to show off your good china and crystal. Easily accessible to both the kitchen and the living room it works well for entertaining. The kitchen has been updated with newer countertops, painted white cupboards, ceramic flooring and an eating counter. 3 appliances stay to get you started. This room is wonderful for preparing meals for the family or for friends. It is open to the family area and has a nice spot in front of the bay window to put a round table and chairs and create an eating area if the dining room is not where you want to eat everyday and the luncheon counter is not sized for your family. The family room and kitchen virtually form one large room with a door out to the deck and lots of sunny windows. Most owners complain that their guests hang out in the kitchen but in this house it will be something that you will be proud of. Most homes in Old South do not have room on the main floor for a bath. This home has a cute 2 piece with a window too. Upstairs are 4 bright bedrooms with hardwood flooring and they all have closets!! There is an updated full bath with ceramic flooring. The attic has had the insulation updated recently too. The entire home has been recently repainted and decorated and there is newer carpet up the stairs to the 2nd floor. Downstairs is a refurbished recreation area done in tongue and groove pine with laminate flooring and a 2nd wood burning fireplace that can be adapted to working order if you wish. Some extra special features of this home include a laundry chute, cedar closet, programmable thermostat and central vac. This home has both charm and character as well as most of the updates you would want done, leaving others, that most buyers would prefer to their personal taste. So if you thought you could never find that huge lot in Old South plus 4 bedrooms and a 2 car garage...think again and call us to set up a private viewing at your convenience.
