Ideally located only 1/2 a block from Preston Street in the heart of Ottawa's bustling Little Italy, on a dead-end street with direct access to the bike path and LRT. Walk to cafes, restaurants, and Dow's Lake in minutes. This solid brick detached home is situated on a private lot with its own driveway and detached garage! Steeped with charm & character; including the original bannister, strip wood ceilings, wood floors, two balconies off 2nd-floor bedrooms, plus a full-height loft/attic. Staircase to the loft is steep but could be re-worked by stealing a bit of space from the master bedroom. This level offers amazing possibilities with its wide plank flooring and three-piece bathroom with a vintage claw-foot tub. Large eat-in kitchen has already been done, roof 2017, gas furnace 2014 and most windows & doors updated. Lots of small finishing work still to be done and well worth the effort. Some aluminium wiring & lead water supply to the house. Offers welcome 5:00 pm Tues Oct 22.
