Where it is

2211 13 St. S.W.

 

The renovation

Before a major renovation that took place between 2002 to 2018, this home initially featured four bedrooms and two bathrooms across 1,400 square feet. In 2002, the new homeowners undertook an $800K renovation to completely transform the home. The interior was fully gutted and rebuilt, including new additions such as extra bedrooms, bathrooms, vaulted ceilings and custom details including millwork, a sunken living room, a transformed basement and expanding the space to 4,300 square feet.

 

What to love

Every room in this home is a true oasis with unique features and appealing details. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home with its sleek oversized island with black quartz, a Dutch-designed oven, an expansive refrigerator and ample space to move around and cook. Moving out of the kitchen, sink into the west-facing sunken living room that is flooded with natural lighting from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The primary bedroom is designed around tranquility for a more private retreat with a vaulted ceiling, custom millwork and a spa-like ensuite. The home’s lower-level offers multiple uses with a wet bar, an oversized walkout flex room, an office connecting to an east-facing patio, a fully equipped gym and a secret kids’ clubhouse under the stairs.

During the warmer months, make the most of the professionally landscaped yard, filled with lush trees and plenty of space.

 

What to consider

Upper Mount Royal offers homes in a range of ages, with some nearly 100 years old. Just a few blocks away is the 17th Avenue S.W. shopping district, which includes access to plenty of restaurants, stores, cafés and more. The home’s ample rooms and space are great features for young or growing families.
