16 Bloomsgrove Avenue, Port Hope, ON

I just finished uploading this 2 Storey Detached for sale, 16 Bloomsgrove Avenue, Port Hope, ON

It is rare to find a home with woodwork as exceptional as you will find in this one. It just glows with the loving care it has been given over the years. This home was built in 1894 and is situated on one of Port Hope's finest streets, "the Avenue" close to downtown. It maintains lots of original features and some good updates. The original front porch has been converted to a sunroom that is fully insulated and has been used as a home office. Inside the front door you will find the double front doors with their stained glass transom. In the main foyer you will find the gorgeous main staircase and double doors leading into the living room and dining room. Both of these rooms are spacious and have large wood trimmed bay windows. The living room also has an original coal burning fireplace (not in use). On this level you will also find a recently updated kitchen with a large island, breakfast bar, quartz counter top and porcelain floors. Off the kitchen is a 3 piece bath (with shower), the back staircase leading upstairs and the charming mud room that leads to the garage and rear yard. Upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms, all with original trim and closets, and a small study or office. There is also a 3 piece bath here (with a tub) and a large storage closet off the hallway. The basement has good headroom with all the utilities and laundry room. It is a great storage spot. This home also backs onto Ontario Street providing lots of room for parking or opportunity to expand the garden area.
