Welcome to 571 Hopkins Avenue, a beautifully renovated century home situated within a quiet neighbourhood of Peterborough’s Old West End community.
The exterior brick of the home has been painted a deep blue, and new wood posts support the front porch’s roof. The backyard is quite deep and partially fenced, and off the home’s sliding door walk-out is a large wood deck.
Some of the characteristic original features can still be seen with this home, such as the size and shape of the windows, as well as the staircase to the upper level, its bannister, and hallway railing. Many of the interior trims and baseboards have been updated, and all that are new mirror what would have been the widths of the originals.
Throughout the main and upper levels is wide plank laminate flooring, and both levels also have a fresh, airy atmosphere with an abundance of natural lighting. The front door has a transom and opens into a spacious foyer illuminated by a contemporary pendant light. Off this space is a home office/den with a frosted glass panelled French door entry, a panelled accent wall, and which could also be used as an additional bedroom.
The principal rooms have an open concept design, and offer wonderful entertaining space. The living room features a ceiling fan, and across from it (just off the kitchen) is the staircase to the unfinished lower level. The wall that separates this access from the living room has been opened up, and allows light through the window to spill into the living area.
The kitchens elegant and functional, with this work area showcasing cabinetry with extended height molded uppers; great counter work space with breakfast seating at the peninsula; pot lighting; as well as a stainless steel double sink, oven with smooth cooktop, built-in microwave and dishwasher, as well as a French door fridge with bottom mount freezer.
The dining room is brightened with a contemporary light fixture, and is open to an adjacent family room that has a secondary entrance from the side yard - and off both of these rooms is the sliding door walk-out to the backyard.
The main level also features a laundry room with a stacked front load washer and dryer - and which is combined with a 3-pc washroom featuring a pedestal sink and an acrylic shower area with glass door.
The upper level features three bedrooms: the third bedroom at the south end of the hallway overlooks the backyard; the second bedroom has a double-sized closet with a single door; and the graciously sized master bedroom features two double closets, a ceiling fan, and a pendant light fixture. This level is complete with a 4-pc washroom featuring a tiled floor and bath area, as well as a modern vanity with a vessel basin.
This home is within the catchment areas of Queen Mary and Prince of Wales (Fr. Imm) Public Schools; St. Anne Catholic Elementary School (Fr. Imm); Adam Scott Collegiate Vocational Institute (Fr. Imm); and St. Peter Catholic Elementary School (Fr. Imm).
A short walk to public transit, Bonnerworth Park, and access to the Trans Canada Trail - this home is also close to the shops, entertainment, restaurants, and riverfront parks of downtown Peterborough; the numerous plazas and professional services along Lansdowne Street and Chemong Road; Peterborough Regional Health Centre; and the Kawartha Golf & Country Club - with access to Hwys 7 and the 115 for commuting just short drives away.
