Welcome to 47 Robinson Street, a two-and-a-half storey brick home situated in Peterborough’s East End, and just minutes from fantastic city amenities.
This home’s exterior additionally features siding on its second storey, as well as a covered brick front porch with a wood entry door - and the property includes a detached one-and-a-half car garage with a separate single garage door for easier access to seasonal yard maintenance equipment. The back yard is fenced at the rear, and has a tiered wood deck offering plenty of space for outdoor seasonal entertaining.
Built circa the early 1920s, the interior stills retains much of its original charm, as seen in some of the finishing details - including the original hardwood flooring on the the main and second levels, as well as existing original extra-deep base baseboards, door and window trims. While most of the windows have been updated, their size and shape are characteristic of the era the home was built in.
The main level opens into a foyer area finished with decorative ceramic tiles, and these can also be seen in the adjacent powder room, which also features a space-saving vanity. The reception hall has an arched entry into the living room, and by the hardwood staircase to the upper level is another archway.
The living room features a ceiling fan, and a huge north-facing bay window with a wood ledge allowing soft natural lighting to fill the room. The adjacent dining room is graced with crown moldings and an east-facing century-style window, has a sliding door walk-out onto the back deck, and is open to the kitchen. Finished with easy-care vinyl flooring, the kitchen features wood cabinetry with an abundance of storage, which is also complemented with a quaint built-into-the wall pantry. There is lots of counter work space, and the peninsula facing the dining area has a raised breakfast bar for complementary seating. Also featuring a double sink, side-by-side fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and oven with gas cooktop - the kitchen also has a walk-out to the backyard, and a greenhouse window on its west wall.
Just off the kitchen/dining area is the staircase to the lower level, which offers great utility, recreational, and storage space. This level has a laundry area with front load washer and dryer; a large storage room; a 3-pc washroom with a Euro vanity and walk-in shower; as well as two more rooms that can be utilized to suit personal or household needs.
The second level features three bedrooms, all which are quite spacious and naturally bright. There are also two washrooms, both with easy-care vinyl flooring: one is a 4-pc featuring a combined bath/shower area, a Euro vanity, pine wainscoting, and a built-in linen/toiletry cabinet with a pine door — while the other washroom is a 3-pc showcasing a modern vanity with a wood counter and vessel basin, contemporary light fixtures, and a corner glass shower. This washroom also can be accessed from the third bedroom (currently a sitting room) via an adjoining hall - yet can also kept private from this space, and used exclusively as a private washroom for the third level loft area.
The lower landing of the loft staircase has built-in wood display/storage selves, and the walls of this landing and along the staircase are finished with beadboard panelling. Ideal as a master bedroom, or as a spacious family recreation area - the loft is carpeted throughout, has pot lighting, two east- and west-facing bow windows, several wall niches for display or storage, as well as built-in closet space and storage cubbies.
This home is within the catchment areas of King George Public School (French Immersion available from SK-Gr. 2), Amour Heights Public School, Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School, and Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School; as well as Edmison Heights Public School (Gr. 3-6), St. Anne Catholic Elementary School, Adam Scott Intermediate/Collegiate and Vocational Institute, and St. Peter Catholic Secondary School for their French Immersion programs.
A short walk to James Stevenson Park, walking trails, the Otonabee River, and Little Lake - just minutes away across the river is downtown Peterborough, with its myriad of shops, dining establishments, entertainment, and services - while access to Hwy 115 for commuters is just a five minute drive.
