Where it is

1436 6A St. N.W.

 

The renovation

Originally built as a bungalow in 1929, this home underwent a renovation in 2004 to incorporate a second storey and mudroom off the back of the home. Previously coming in at 1,150 square feet, the home now boasts 2,373 square feet of living space.

When this home was renovated, it kept its historic roots while incorporating more Craftsman features with a cozy front porch, arched roof and more spacious windows. The natural wood accents, spacious open layout and touches of wood accents on the wall still remain from its bungalow days.

 

What to love

Stepping from the front porch into the foyer, this home offers a sense of coziness paired with modern luxury. There are authentic wood accents, hardwood floors and vintage fixtures maintained throughout the home.

The main floor boasts a true gourmet kitchen with a large island, stainless steel appliances, plenty of countertop space and open access to the family living space. The more formal living room has a vaulted ceiling, built-in cabinets around a gas fireplace and classic double French doors.

Offering relaxation and fun at home, the basement features a large, open recreation space with another gas fireplace and built-in shelving. And for visiting family, the basement also has a large bedroom with a bathroom offering heated floors, a walk-in shower and a large vanity.

 

What to consider

The home’s elegant design and location in the Rosedale community makes this an ideal family home. The fact that it’s located on a quiet, tree-lined street (and just two blocks from the Rosedale School or downtown) makes it convenient for adults and kids alike.
