Welcome to 224 Bay Street, a charming four bedroom home nestled in a well-established neighbourhood that enjoys a fabulous location close many of Cobourg’s prime amenities.
Originally built in the late 1800s, and set on a premium-sized 63’ x 163’ (approx.) lot, the home has a covered front porch and and a mature tree in its front yard; a detached single door garage and driveway parking for up to three vehicles; and a deck with wheelchair accessibility wrapping around from its east-facing side entrance to the north-facing rear of the home. Here, it overlooks a deep yard lined with hedges and mature trees, lots of play space, and which has great potential for transformation into a gardening or entertaining oasis. An addition to the original home was also added at some point in the 1950s.
The home has a formal front entrance opening into a nicely sized living room which can also be combined with an intimate dining area, while to the right of this entry is a room that would originally served as a parlour. This room is also ideal as a bedroom for a family member with mobility difficulties, as it has a sliding door for access to the 4-pc washroom, which features an updated vanity, a bath with a hand-held shower head, as well as a separate shower area with glass door.
The washroom is also accessible from the eat-in kitchen, which has space for a breakfast area, and also features wood cabinetry, an island with a stainless steel double sink, fridge, stove, microwave, a side storage area ideal for a pantry, and a walk-out onto the deck (this is also the everyday entrance into the home). The main level also has a closet just off the front entrance, and from the kitchen is staircase access to the basement - which is unfinished, has a laundry area, and offers plenty of storage.
The upper level has three bedrooms, all with sloped ceilings and windows characteristic of the era the home was built in - and the master bedroom also has a built-into-the wall storage closet.
This home is within the catchment areas of C. R. Gummow Public School (Fr. Imm); St. Joseph-Cobourg and St. Michael (Fr. Imm) Catholic Elementary Schools; Cobourg Collegiate Institute (Fr. Imm); and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School (Fr. Imm).
This home has a great location in south Cobourg, and is walking distance to many amenities and attractions - including Donegan and Victoria Parks; Cobourg Beach and Lake Ontario’s shoreline; as well as Cobourg’s historic downtown core with its wide variety of boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment. Many other amenities are also close at hand, being just minutes away by car, such as shopping plazas and the Northumberland Mall; Northumberland Hills Hospital; the Cobourg Conservation Area; recreational and sporting facilities; as well as the VIA Rail Station and access to Hwy 401 for commuters.
