**** PLEASE CLiCK ON RED BUTTON FOR INTERACTIVE VIDEO TOUR *** Hidden away in almost the centre of Calgary is Garden Crescent—a very private little alcove off Elbow with a centre boulevard boasting stately old trees and shrubs. The delightful homes circling this central island remind you of a quieter, gentler way of living, and is a most sought-after location for those who know of it. This mostly restored and renovated home at 118 has not been offered for sale in over 60 years making this sale a unique opportunity. The charm of the early nineteen hundreds has been maintained inside and out. The entire home was stripped down to the studs, insulated, re-dry walled using new arts and crafts millwork, baseboards, and casings. All new electrical wiring, domestic and wastewater plumbing lines, plus new hot water heating/ plus new HVAC system. Very pleasing, quite open floor plan, high ceilings, well suited for entertaining. Spacious entry hallway, with the original craftsman style balustrade staircase system winding to the second floor. Spacious and bright living room, dining room, and kitchen all with gleaming new wood floors. Kitchen has new appliances, plus shaker style cabinetry. There is a new two-piece bath (with a roughed in shower) on the main floor. The second floor maintains the original clear fir floors in the open central hallway plus all four bedrooms, noting that two bedrooms have broadloom covering the wood floors currently. There is a charming, east-facing balcony overlooking the back garden, catching the first light of day. The two front bedrooms have doors leading to a common sunroom/study, with a rounded wall full of windows facing the boulevard island. A new four-piece bath completes the second floor. The lower level has also been completely remodelled, top to bottom, even new windows and another new four-piece bath. There is a gas fireplace in the lower living room. The lower level enjoys the ability to be used as a mother-in-law or nanny accommodations, with one large bedroom, family room and a partial kitchen. Laundry facilities are also located here. The rear garden enjoys quiet privacy and currently has a single garage. There is room for a double garage noting that the area has been zoned for building a garden suite above the garage if desired. There is much to explore in the historic neighbourhood of Elbow Park. Walk to work downtown. Enjoy the parks, the walking/bike pathways along the Elbow River. Go for a swim or float at leisure down the river, or suntan along many little beach areas. The wonderful restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses, and specialty stores all within walking distance add to the potential enjoyment of living in this remarkable location at very reasonable price.
