One of the Forest City's most sought after family neighbourhoods. This home is walking distance to Optimist Park sports fields, variety store and video rentals. Close by you will find a pharmacy, restaurant, grocery store, flower shop, liquor store, fast food, a library and all kinds of specialty shops including London's best mechanic.....Byron Automotive.

Imagine being able to jog to London's premier greenspace.....Springbank Park. Consider spending Sunday's strolling the Thames River and stopping at Byron's own coffee bar for a cup of java, all within a few blocks of your new home. A short drive will take you to Westmount.....London's only mall with underground parking or the 100's of shops in the White Oaks mall area. You are located close to all the amenities any family will need but far enough away from the hustle and bustle!

This 1 floor cozy cottage was one of Byron's first farmhouse's built by brother's who were local stone masons. The attractive stone front makes it an area landmark and the huge parklike lot qualifies it as a really rare find. The wood shake roof enhance the street appeal as does the newer front door. The driveway has been widened and it is deep enough to accommodate lots of parking. The treed rear yard has a cute shed with newer cedar shake shingles and flooring. The yard is absolutely breathtaking in the summer with all the greenery from the grass and trees. There is a tranquil patio area off the kitchen and master bedroom so you can enjoy your own parklike yard over a b.b.q with friends or a romantic late night drink with your loved one. This set up is also conductive to adding a screened in porch or an addition to this bungalow. Some of the windows as well as the terrace doors are newer.

Once you walk inside you will fall in love with the bright open space yet it still has a sense of coziness. The hallway is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair and adds to the feeling of space. The warm hardwood flooring throughout the main floor adds to that "at home feeling". The living area offers open concept dining and living plus the wood insert in the fireplace can heat the entire cottage if you wish to cut down on your utility bills. This area is enhanced by a huge window and built in bookshelves. The kitchen offers an eating bar, a pantry and good working area for meal preparation. All 3 bedrooms are better than average size for a 1 floor in Byron and each has good closet space and a large window too! The spacious master, with lovely terrace doors, features a convenient 2 piece ensuite. Your 4 piece bath is oversized with room to build in extra cupboards or closet space. You could even consider installing a jacuzzi. The lower level has room for a laundry and storage area but is not large enough or high enough to finish further. The laundry facilities could be moved up to the main floor for even added convenience!!

So if you are looking for a unique historically significant home that gives you a country/cottage atmosphere where you can retreat after a long day, this is definitely it!!
