2743 DERWENT AVE, Cumberland, British Columbia

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a lovingly cared for & totally updated character filled home. Built in the 1950's on the Royston waterfront, moved in 2008 onto a new foundation (double insulated) to the colourful community of Cumberland. Added 200AMP service, pex plumbing, vinyl windows, new roof & attic insulation. Fall in love w/ the charming yesteryear details. The home has been restored by skilled craftsmen & a deep appreciation of the heritage. Front yard w/ established gardens, covered front porch, lots of parking & beautiful curb appeal. Open plan between the living room/kitchen, w/ wood stove, adjoining storage room, & large mudroom/den/laundry. New beautiful floors: a mix of maple & alder woodland wide plank floors, vinyl, & custom cork/slate w/ inset entry carpet. 2 bedrooms w/ built in wardrobes. Private low-maintenance backyard w/ extensive wood decking (partially covered), English gardens, & pond. It's a treat for BBQing, tiki-torching, gardening, & sun-worshipping. In 2010 a 610sqft detached workshop w/ carport was built, connected to the main house w/ a breezeway & offers laneway access. In use as a hobby room/workshop now, but zoning allows for 2nd dwelling (roughed in water & sewer). So many possibilities. Must be seen - take your time to soak it all in - plenty of personality & infused with love - move right in & enjoy the hard work on a street of historic, loved homes in one of the island's most vibrant communities. Backs onto beloved amenities: Ryders, CBC, Moose Cafe, The Grind, Cumberland Bakery & Seeds Grocery. (id:2469)
