Welcome to 430 Tecumseth Street, a century home that has retained much of its original character, and is situated within Central Newmarket.
Built in 1906 for John H. Brimson, a carriage maker, this home features its original brick exterior and wrap-around porch; a single car garage with a two-car parking pad; an interlocking walkway to the front steps; and a large back yard that is fenced and has a storage shed, gated access from the front yard, and a deck for al fresco dining and barbecuing.
This home has also retained some of the original interior features - which include the hardwood floors, crown moldings, door and window trims, baseboards, wainscoting, interior doors, stained glass accent windows, and the staircase to the second level. On the south side of the home is an addition to the original structure. This has both a secondary side entrance to the home and a garden door walk-out to the backyard; has a gas stove for added warmth; is finished with Berber broadloom and laminate flooring, as well as showcasing part of the original brick exterior as an accent wall; and offers additional household space for a breakfast area, family room, or a home office.
The main level foyer and reception hall is very open and inviting - and leads into the two formal entertaining rooms, both which are generously sized. The dining room has a large bay window and direct access to the kitchen, while the living room has two distinct conversation/sitting areas that are warmed by a wood-burning fireplace original to the home. The living room also has two separate French door entries opening to the family room - and off the reception hall can also be found a powder room with checkerboard-style tiled floor and a pedestal sink, as well as the upper level staircase.
The kitchen has a wood-panelled ceiling with a fan, and also features cabinetry with a large pantry area; a peninsula with a tiled counter, built-in gas cooktop, and glass panelled upper display cabinets; a tiled back splash and double sink; as well as appliances including a dishwasher, oven, and fridge. Off the kitchen is access to an unfinished basement, which has a laundry area with washer and dryer, and offers an abundance of storage space for the home.
The second level is naturally brightened with light through the staircase window, and features three bedrooms and two washrooms. Both the second and third bedrooms are quite spacious and have ample closet storage — and share a 4-pc main washroom finished with a tiled floor, vanity with integrated countertop and basin, as well as a panelled ceiling, and which also has access to a storage room.
The master bedroom is graciously sized, naturally brightened with light through its four windows, and has a huge wardrobe that is almost the full length of its west wall. This retreat is complete with a 3-pc ensuite washroom that has a tiled floor and walk-in shower area, as well as a vanity with integrated countertop and basin.
There is also a carpeted staircase off the upper hallway that leads to the third level loft/attic area which is well-suited as a private home office, personal hobby room, an additional bedroom, or as a teenagers’ media room/hangout space.
This home is within walking distance to many amenities, including schools, places of worship, parks, a library, recreational and community facilities, public transit, and numerous shops and services along Main Street Newmarket. Also close at hand are Southlake Regional Health Centre, the GO Station, and the Upper Canada Mall, while the Magna Centre, golf courses, and access to Hwy 404 are just short drives away.
