Welcome to 438 Brioux Avenue, a three bedroom century home with a great central location in south Peterborough.
This home features its original brick exterior, as well as many original interior details; ample driveway parking; a covered front porch with a wood-panelled ceiling, a recently stained floor, and a brick half wall with lattice detailing; a front entry door with a retractable screen; and a fenced backyard shaded by mature trees, as well as having a storage shed and a deck with built-in seating.
Freshly painted throughout - and a harmonious blend of the past and the present - the home still retains some of its original wood details, which include most of the door and window trims, interior doors, extra-deep wood baseboards, as well as the existing wood flooring. The window shapes and sizes are also characteristic of the era, and this home also has a lower level with a recreation area and a bonus room finished with carpeting, as well as a combined mechanical/storage/laundry room with washer and dryer.
The entrance foyer is finished with easy-care luxury vinyl flooring that flows through to the kitchen, and the foyer features a double-sized coat closet and a wood staircase to the upper level. The living and dining rooms both have oak hardwood flooring that has been refinished and very large windows - while the dining room has the ambient lighting of a contemporary pendant-style light fixture. In addition, all the light fixtures throughout the main and upper level have been updated.
The kitchen has been beautifully renovated with a gorgeous modern design. Solid wood cabinetry with a white finish and soft closing hardware is topped with quartz counters, and the white dishwasher blends to maintain a sleek, seamless look. The kitchen also features a stainless steel double under mount sink, oven with smooth cooktop, and a fridge - and there is also a built-into-the wall pantry, as well as a walk-out onto the backyard deck.
The upper level features refinished pine flooring throughout, and three spacious bedrooms - all with walk-in style closets. Just like the kitchen, the washroom has been updated with a sleek modern design, and showcases hexagonal-shaped floor tiles; a tiled bath/shower area with rain and hand-held shower heads; updated baseboards; and a sold wood vanity with a white finished, as well as two under mount basins.
This home is within the catchment areas of Roger Neilson Public School, St. John-Peterborough Catholic Elementary School, Kenner Collegiate Vocational Institute and Intermediate School, and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School; as well as Prince of Wales Public School, St. Anne Catholic Elementary School, Adam Scott Collegiate Vocational Institute, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
Within walking distance is the Lansdowne Mall, places of worship, restaurants and fast food chains, R. A. Morrow Memorial Park, the Peterborough Memorial Centre, and a wide variety of shops and services. Fleming College and Trent University campuses are short drives away, as is access to Hwys 7 and the 115 - and vibrant waterfront surrounding Little Lake, as well as downtown Peterborough, are also close at hand.
