1025 Dorchester, Winnipeg, Manitoba

I just finished uploading this 2 1/2 storey character home for sale, 1025 Dorchester, Winnipeg, Manitoba

Come home to a true Crescentwood classic that combines warm, turn-of-the-century character with modern conveniences. That character starts the moment you enter the home via a wide foyer with original oak hardwoods and oak staircase with hard-carved bannister, spindles and railing. The character continues in the open-concept living room/dining room, which is surrounded by large oak-trimmed windows and accented by well-preserved door trim, baseboards and hardwoods. An arched entrance provides seamless access to the living room with beamed oak ceiling and two large windows, Oak wall trim adds warmth, while modern colours make the space contemporary and cozy. Thanks to a well-placed doorway, the remodeled kitchen - which features granite counter tops, dark maple cabinets, a copper-style ceiling and a bright eating nook that leads to a deck in the private back yard - accessing the great room is a breeze while entertaining. Upstairs, character, space and light abound with original fir hardwoods, three big bedrooms with huge windows (including one with an ornate stamped copper ceiling) and main bath with a deep clawfoot soaker tub and oak vanity; the bright, spacious master bedroom even comes with its own sunroom. A set of stairs hidden behind a folding door off the den takes you up to a huge attic with textured walls and ceiling, brown-stained wood trim and built-in wall storage; it's ideal for a bedroom, play room or media room. Meanwhile, the lower level has been developed with a fifth bedroom, laundry area, three-piece bathroom and storage. Add a functional single car garage with parking pad, a lot surrounded by mature trees and a location that's close to everything - schools, downtown, Polo Park, south Winnipeg and more - and you have a home that has the space, style and amenities that make it ideal for family life and entertaining.
