This house will impress those seeking character and charm. From the minute you enter via a beautifully restored glass panel entrance door, a sense of old-world charm merged with modern convenience awaits. Bright and fresh, the 9’3′ ceilings soar with light, framed by original 12″ baseboards and beautiful wood trim work. The entrance includes the original coal-burning fireplace as well as an amazing cast-iron heat grill. The open staircase is ahead while beautiful glass panelled doors lead to the large, open concept living/dining/kitchen area. Gorgeous wood floors gleam with large bright windows (updated thermal). This area includes a wood-burning fireplace (not currently being used) as well as a 3 pc bathroom just off the kitchen. Speaking of the kitchen, it’s been updated to include newer cabinets, a farmer sink and a gourmet stove. Located behind this area is the former ‘summer kitchen’ which has been completely renovated from the foundation up. It’s current use is as a cycling studio and features exposed red brick wall and glass patio doors to the private courtyard. What an amazing space! It would make an ideal home office, artists den, rec room, gym and more!

Fitness room? Office? Artists Studio? Rec Room?

And let’s speak about this courtyard. While nestled in the heart of Peterborough’s beautiful downtown district, it’s a slice of tranquillity that just oozes calm and peace. Natural plantings, herb garden, stone patio, and some really incredible trees…all fully contained by a large, sturdy wooden fence with gates. If you’re a dog owner, this is your home! The home also includes an attached single-car garage with an entrance to the home via the cycling studio and parking for 3 cars, accessed via a private rear lane.

Upstairs, the home features 4 good-sized bedrooms and a second bathroom with original cast-iron bathtub, circa 1911. There is also a really neat unfinished storage area that begs to become a playroom for kids! Check out the second ‘butlers’ staircase, providing for some really interesting in-law potential….

For those who love these old homes, this one is a rare treat. The ‘heavy lifting’ work is complete as windows, electrical and plumbing have all been updated. extensive work has been done to maintain the structural integrity of the home which includes steel beams and support posts. This is the work that can cost so much and yet is completed on this property. It’s rare in these older homes and important to note when examining value in century homes. Even the courtyard was excavated and tile-drained when the fencing was installed!

464 Charlotte Street – it’s simply the perfect blend of location, quality and price!
