147 Wheeler Avenue – Listed at $989,000

This gorgeous, detached, 3-storey home on Wheeler Avenue is sure to make your knees weak. Built in 1889, and lovingly restored in 2012, this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom piece of art was taken down to the studs. With exposed original brick and ceiling joists, solid oak stairs with glass balustrades all the way up, and horizontal cut windows for that extra bit of brightness, there's the perfect balance of old and new. Has custom, hand-carved barn wood trim, polished concrete floors with exposed aggregate, engineered real oak floors, and hydronic in-floor heating throughout with a separate thermostat for every floor - talk about luxury! Envision yourself in the modern, lofty kitchen with industrial-style plumbing fixtures, 40 linear ft of cupboards, stainless steel appliances from 2012, including built-in wall oven, dishwasher and fridge, with ice maker and water dispenser, and high-end Ceasar stone counter tops. Using reclaimed brick from 1920's for both the kitchen backsplash as well as on the front of the house, the classical character of this house has not been lost. Custom vanities in every bathroom, conveniently located 2nd floor laundry room (ooo-la-la, life just got easier), and 3rd floor master retreat with ensuite bath and 250 sq ft private balcony. Fun Fact: when the owners gutted the attic, they found a pair of Victorian lady's shoes, size 2 ½. Check 'em out in the photos above! One of the original beach houses, this classic home is ripe and ready for the next generation. Offers on Tuesday October 6th at 7pm.
