Property of the Week: $612,000 Inglewood Character Home

It was built in 1907 by former Calgary alderman Robert Suitor.

It has pretty fretwork on the front porch.

Where it is

804 9 Street S.E.

The history

804 is one of four houses built by Robert Suitor in the early 1900s in the community of Inglewood. Suitor ran a successful construction and real estate business in the city and served as an alderman from 1907 to 1908. This house is a couple houses down from the Suitor House, at 1004 8 Avenue S.E., which is a designated heritage site and also, allegedly, known for paranormal activity. 804 is not a designated heritage site, so extensive updates over the past 100 plus years have most likely chased any ghosts away.

What to love

The two-bedroom has lots of character, combined with modern updates. It has a front porch with decorative fretwork and huge back deck for summer entertaining. The main floor has an open floor plan and updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and gas range. The open-concept third floor attic has tons of natural light and includes a roughed in bathroom waiting to be completed.

What to consider

The basement is unfinished and parking spots are on a gravel pad out front.
