Backing onto a beautiful manicured park (!) plus all the expensive renovations are completed including triple-pane windows, high-efficiency multi-stage furnace, hot water tank, roof shingles, and new cedar deck and fence. Also bathrooms upgraded including a new shower in the ensuite. Incredible super-quiet location, but just a few steps to olympic heights or john costello schools, playing fields, ravine trails, transit, and shopping at strathcona square. Take the c-train downtown or drive in 12-15 minutes. This home has a wonderful and comfortable floor plan with a nice-sized living/dining area at the front, u-shaped kitchen looking out to your gorgeous backyard, and also a family room down a few steps, also overlooking the backyard. Three good-sized bedrooms up, plus a potential 4th in the basement (needs egress window). Basement has plenty of storage in the crawl space. Top it off with a a big garage (big enough for a full-sized pick-up). Just an all-around wonderful home to raise your family!
