Welcome to 183 Albert Street, a beautiful four bedroom century home situated just a short walk from the heart of Cobourg’s historic downtown core.
This Jackson home features a brick exterior, a charming covered front porch lined with perennials, and a deep backyard. Shaded by majestic trees and surrounded by perennial plantings, the backyard also has a flagstone patio, as well as a wood deck that wraps around the side of the home as walkway connecting to another walkway continuing to the front yard.
The original home was built circa 1914, with an addition finished four years ago - with the main part of the home still featuring some of its original characteristics: oak hardwood flooring; the front door; deep baseboards; door, window, and ceiling trims, and a staircase to the upper level finished with hardwood treads and railing. The size and shape of the windows are common to the era, as are the closets, and the basement - while unfinished - provides plenty of storage.
Off the main hall is the living room, which has a door with its entry keeping it private from the main entrance. The adjacent dining room is illuminated by a classic light fixture - and both of these entertaining spaces have a warm and inviting aura.
The kitchen also retains the charm of the original home, and this bright, open work area features durable quality flooring; cabinetry storage complemented with built-in shelves; a stainless steel double sink, oven with smooth cooktop, and a fridge with bottom mount freezer; a portable dishwasher; as well as wainscoting.
The addition was built by James Sculthorpe, and offers modern living and utility space. Hardwood steps from the dining area lead into the exceptional sunken family room, which has a vaulted ceiling with metal beams, while the home’s brick exterior was retained as an accent feature. Other features include deep wood baseboards and trims; vinyl plank flooring; a nook space ideal for a computer desk or as a reading area; as well as oversized windows with a sliding door walk-out to the backyard on its south wall. In addition, behind two sets of sliding barn-style doors are two separate rooms - a laundry area with stacked washer and dryer; and a powder room with wall-mounted vanity and built-in shelves.
Wainscoting is sen along the staircase wall to the upper level, which features four bedrooms, and a washroom.
The second bedroom has a double closet with wood built-in organizers; the third and fourth bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and double-sized closets with single doors; and the master bedroom has a walk-in closet. The 4-pc washroom is bright and airy, and features vinyl flooring, wainscoting, a pedestal sink, and a clawfoot-style tub with shower head.
This home is within the catchment areas of C. R. Gummow Public School (Fr. Imm); St. Joseph and St. Michael (Fr. Imm) Catholic Elementary Schools; Cobourg Collegiate Institute (Fr. Imm); and St. Mary Catholic Secondary School (Fr. Imm).
Just a short walk to downtown Cobourg, other great amenities are minutes away, as well (walking and/or driving): including shops, restaurants, and entertainment; parks; Cobourg’s superb beach and its marina; places of worship; as well as banks and professional services - while shopping plazas and Northumberland Mall, Northumberland Hills Hospital, Cobourg Conservation Area, Via Rail train service, and access to Hwy 401 are all short drives away.
