Mr AND Mrs Clean live here!!!! If you are super fussy then you will love the sellers of this home!

Every little thing has been looked at and fixed if needed! These ownwers are house proud and believe in maintaining their investment. You will notice this right as soon as you drive up to the door. The landscaping has been painstakingly developed over the last 6 years! It is the envy of all the neighbours and the passersby.

You will love spending Sunday afternoons on your large covered verandah talking to neighbours and strollers by as they stop and admire your home. Or if privacy is desired the beautiful huge newer sundeck offers a quiet place for a summer bbq or an evening drink. It also overlooks a large yard with an adorable potting shed and fabulous gardens.

The exterior of this brick home is basically maintenance free! The shingles were done 6 years ago, all windows were replaced with low e argon gas in ' 98 and 2000, terrace doors were added off the dining room, the soffits, fascia, eaves, and siding were done 4 years ago, the chimney was repointed and the front porch painted last year, even the lawn has been professionally maintained!!!!

The owners have also added decorative shutters to enhance the curb appeal and replaced both exterior doors and added a rustic screen door to the front!

Situated on a very large corner lot you really only have one neighbour and if proximity to schools is a concern this home is right across from South Secondary and Tecumseh. It's a short stroll downtown or into Wortley Village for a beer on the patio at the local restaurant, to drop your dry cleaning, pick up a book at the library, shop at the quaint stores or get your groceries!!!

If tennis is your game or you could use a cool refreshing dip in the pool stroll over to Thames Park. Old South has to be one of London's most acessible locations to has everything plus it is only a quick drive to 100's of shops at London's major destination mall White Oaks!

You will have lots of time to enjoy all the area amentities as this home really has nothing left to be done!

Once you step through the front door you will see the updates. The formal living room has an attractive french door and don't miss the stain glass windows. There is also a formal dining area with terrace doors to the rear yard. These rooms are open to each other so they are perfect for entertaining!! There is good quality carpeting in the living and dining area over hardwood floors.

The kitchen was professionally done 6 years ago with black and white ceramic tile flooring, a cast iron Chef's sink, new cupboards, plumbing and a 2nd access to the deck! It's great for working in and is right across from the dining room for quick meals or leisurely gourmet dinners with friends and family!

Upstairs is a new marble floored bath with deep tub and gorgeous pedestal sink. Its spacious and bright too. The master is at the front of the house and has an operating window for fresh air on those warm fall nites. Use either of the other 2 rooms for a study or den.This level boasts warm hardwood flooring too.

The lower level is unfinished and offers lots of storage and a laundry area.

To help you keep your costs down the home has recently been repainted inside in neutral colous to compliment any taste.

This charmer is perfect for the single busy buyer or couple who would rather golf than renovate!
