At the front the huge master bedroom has an opening skylight and an 8’x6’ sitting area with 180 degree views. If wanted a new owner possibly could add in an ensuite bathroom at one end of this 23’6” long bedroom. At the back of this floor a door opens to a 13’x6’9” second level south deck that the owners describe as a “suntrap”.
A fold down ladder accesses the attic which has lots of built in storage and incredible views from the large skylights.
The good height basement , 7ft+ in most areas, has a professional office and sitting area by the back door and an older 1 bedroom unauthorized suite at the front with downtown view from the living room.

Over the past 30 years these owners have maintained and upgraded the house, including having it extensively rewired, a recent safety certificate is available. In 1993 the owners took out permits and enclosed the second floor porch, this is now the vaulted ceilinged sitting area in the master bedroom. Over the years the owners have also developed the attic, added on the hobby room/workshop and built sundecks on the main and 2nd floor. More recent updates include: 2009: a new roof, 2011: a new furnace, 2012: a new 50 gallon hot water tank. Almost all the windows have been replaced and the house is fully insulated.
Out back there is an extra wide 25ft back lane (standard is 20ft and sometimes less). This allows the owners to park behind the fence and come in the back door.
