This enjoyable mid century modernist home, offers over 1900 sf of sprawling living space for practical day to day convenience. Located in highly sought after Old North Woodstock, on an 85’ x 120’ treed lot, this unique home was constructed in 1946 as a building product showcase for the T. L. Hay & Company (Weldwood Canada), and was designed by New York Architect Vernon Sears. The following year, in 1947, it went on to win the Best Interior Design Architectural Award in Parents’ Magazine. It has continued to be enjoyed by only four owners, and while recent improvements have been made over the past few years, thankfully the integrity of the showpiece has been kept in tact.
An ample front foyer invites you in, with plenty of closet space and a view through to the main living area. An open living room/dining room both enjoy the gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the rear yard. Newly installed grey laminate flooring stretches throughout. Quietly tucked away, is a sunny at-home office or den with an exposed brick wall, original maple strip flooring, and access to a rear flagstone patio.
The master bedroom suite offers a peaceful retreat from the rest of the house with two sunny windows overlooking the gardens, wall to wall closet corridor, new broadloom under foot, and a spacious ensuite bath with soaker tub, pedestal sink and glass shower stall.
At the opposite end of the house are found two very spacious children’s bedrooms with hardwood flooring and vaulted ceilings (note the woven wood ceiling), and the family bath.
Renovated in 2009, the sun-flooded eat-in kitchen boasts bamboo cabinetry and booth style built-in kitchen table where you can view the gardens through a large picture window.
A full sized laundry room is adjacent to the kitchen with plenty of cabinetry storage and a door to the garage as well as to a covered side porch, perfect for hanging laundry on a nice day, or relaxing
with a cup of coffee. All appliances are included.
A rec room measuring 21’6” x 12’ is found in the partial basement, along with plenty of storage room. A few of the many recent mechanical improvements include a gas f/air furnace (2008), a new TPO heat welded membrane roof (2014), and windows and doors (2009).
This neighbourhood has it all. Close to the 401/403 access, and yet is located in a quiet family-friendly neighbourhood with plenty of trees and canopy. Enjoy the neighbourhood parks, and bike to the Thames River and all of the biking and walking trails it provides. Enjoyable and practical, combined.
