789 Canniff Place: a pretty, grey-brick backsplit at the end of a cul-de-sac with a green yard you could train a horse in. Two horses, even. Run your own gymkhana on holiday weekends. Sell tickets. Hire a food truck.
Well maybe not quite that. The urban folks down at City Hall wouldn’t appreciate that too much. But you know what we’re getting at. It’s one of the largest yards we’ve seen in the area. Just a pool, then; this splashy garden could certainly handle a nice big infinity pool for all you aspiring Olympians.
The house is no slouch, either, with hardwood flooring in the bright and spotless living and dining rooms. There are sliding doors out from the pretty blue and white kitchen to the deck, and in the other direction it’s just a few stairs down to the fabulous rec room with its stone chimney and gas fireplace, walls lined with a lifetime of books.
There’s an office down there too, along with a second full bath and laundry. A walkout to the wannabe pasture. There are three fine bedrooms up - we should have mentioned that earlier - each with a view over the gardens, and even a cedar-lined closet. It’s a lovely west-end home, it really is, well-looked after, and with easy access to buses and shopping, schools, doctors and the gym at the Y.
Call us for more. Or check out the realtor.ca listing here. Or the virtual tour, with its swings and roundabouts. The floorplans. Or better still, visit us this weekend. We’ll be there Saturday and Sunday, the 17th and 18th.
