You will be absolutely impressed by the preservation of old Halifax in this grand residence, at 1688 Vernon Street, in the heart of the South End - with the brand new French Immersion LeMarchant Elementary School a stone's throw away. An inviting covered front porch welcomes you to a splendid foyer, beyond which is a formal living room with wood burning fireplace, powder room, den with fireplace, formal dining room with original built-ins and kitchen open to an extended sunroom and garden room which floods with natural light from floor to ceiling windows. From the sunroom, access your beautiful south facing back yard complete with deck, outdoor cooking area and large garden shed/studio. On the second level you’ll find two full bathrooms, an expansive master bedroom with fireplace, two spacious bedrooms and a smaller office/bedroom - two of which provide access to your second floor balcony. The third level features a powder room/office space and two more bedrooms. As if this wasn't enough, the basement offers an additional bedroom, a kitchenette, laundry room, utility room and storage. First time to market, owner occupied for over 40 years - such incredible potential within walking distance to Dalhousie University, Hospitals, the Halifax Commons and the amenities of downtown and Quinpool Road.
