I have listed a new property at 2101 Elm Street in Halifax.
Welcome to 2101 Elm - once the "little house on the street", 2018 saw this home undergo a stunning transformation worthy of a television show: the existing space was taken down to the stud for a complete renovation, while the roof was raised to add a needed second storey. Voila! What was old is new again, a perfect balance of original charm and modern amenities. Lingering is encouraged as you enter this home through the original sun porch, to then be greeted by a stunning open concept main floor: a warm and inviting living room with ample space for entertaining; an adjacent dining area bathed in morning sunshine thanks to all the windows and garden door; a 2-piece powder room; and a gorgeous white kitchen with peninsula, custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, tiled backsplash, stainless-steel appliances, and more of that glorious sunshine. Hardwood stairs and paneled walls lead to the second level, featuring: a large principal bedroom with stunning ensuite - a spa-like retreat, with double vanity, custom walk-in shower, and inviting soaker tub - and double built-in closets; two additional bedrooms; and a 4-piece main bath. The unfinished basement offers plenty of room for storage and endless possibilities for future development. The rear deck, accessible via the main-floor garden door, spans the entire width of the house and overlooks a lower concrete patio - plenty of room for summer BBQs. With a single-car garage and parking for 3, what more could this home possibly have to offer? How about one of the greatest neighbourhoods in the city!

Built-in 1939, this beautiful home on Oxford Street is being offered for sale outside of the original owner's family for the first time!

Upstairs are two large bedrooms, each with its own bath: the principal bedroom has a walk-in closet and 4-piece newly renovated ensuite with a soaker tub, corner shower, and skylight. The lower level is its own self-contained suite, boasting a living room with natural gas fireplace, a kitchenette, and a third bedroom with a 4-piece bath - perfect as an in-laws suite! The main levels have hardwood floors throughout, while the lower level has a durable Sierra Stone. The backyard patio has natural gas hookup and well-spaced electrical outlets. A heated garage with a loft area for storage, plenty of parking, and Corridor zoning make this house a must-see. Heat pump (2017) natural-gas boiler (2020).
