Or just enjoy the quaint shops. Nearby Thames Park offers tennis and swimming as well as a perfect spot for a picnic. You are also only a 7 minute drive from UWO and the train, bus and Robert Q can be reached by road, or more peacefully using the riverbank trail system.

The city riverbank trails meet nearby at the Forks of the Thames and allow bike, foot and roller blade access many kilometers to the north, east and west. Over the years the trail system and bridges have been walked and diverse native trees and plants appreciated. One trail leads directly to "the beach" where you can launch into the river. It is possible to canoe several km of the Thames. You will especially enjoy the canoe visits to Storybook Gardens, Saturn Wonderland , or a hot air balloon festival or firework display at the Forks. For the more adventurous, the Thames provides a lively downstream run in spring.

The large backyard has been attractively landscaped over the past three years and enjoys a privacy fence, sun deck and southern exposure! The parking is fabulous with lots of spare parking and a 2 car detached garage with newer door and auto door opener!!! Not an easy thing to find in this area.

The attractive brick curb appeal and Victorian influence are enhanced by the covered front porch and bay window. Set well back from the street and an end unit for added privacy.

The home itself has an interesting history. Originally built over 100 years ago there has been a rear addition added which was once used as an in home office as it has a separate entrance. The present owner now uses it as a main floor den but it could easily be a 4th bedroom.

The eclectic nature of this neighborhood and historical influence of this home will appeal to certain special people. There is a spacious bay windowed living area which opens to a formal dining room. Beautiful painted pine floors run throughout most to the main level. The large foyer has had the pine floor refinished. You can easily use the living area as a study and the dining room makes a perfect gathering place. It is well set up for a grad student who appreciates the finer things in life yet needs space for a roommate!

The updated white kitchen also boasts refinished pine floors, loads of cupboard and counter space, an island with double sink, a drop in stove, garburator and enough room for 2 to enjoy Sunday brunch. There is a sunny newer window too!!!

Off the kitchen is a main floor den area that is perfect for office work, a play room for the little ones or the family piano!

The windows in this home are huge and offer optimal lite. The efficient hot water boiler offers economical heating and the floor plan is great for entertaining friends and business associates alike. The gardens are wonderful and perfectly situated for the avid gardener. The 10 foot ceilings, 12" baseboards and transom windows over doorways are all classic features.
