A stunning combination of history, renewal, charm, and grandeur: If you have taken the time to drive or walk under the gorgeous canopy of trees that grace University Drive, you are sure to have admired this home. Built-in the early 1900s as one of Saskatoon's original mansions, the house was designed by Frank P Martin, who is celebrated for much of Saskatoon's striking early-century architecture. The past number of years have brought a meticulous and extensive renovation – restoring the home as originally as possible while addressing wiring, plumbing, and mechanical....rubber shingles carry a lifetime transferrable warranty and the boiler is brand new. The result is a breathtaking family home that offers all of the modern conveniences you will love, such as a Redl kitchen with 19.5 linear feet of counter and an additional baking area. The oval glass in the front door is created by Lee Brady, while the second-floor bathroom vanity is custom-built of solid walnut. Updated bathrooms and windows, restored hardwood floors, and detailed woodwork reflect the quality of the home; while the sun-drenched study and private rooftop patio offer moments of pleasure. The bright and spacious basement offers high ceilings, hardwood floors, generous storage, and ample room for crafts and hobbies. The third-floor self-contained suite is directly accessible from the outside and can be separately locked, making it an ideal nanny/granny suite or guest retreat. The original carriage house serves as the garage and features a loft with generous storage. A low-maintenance yard landscaped with 30 tons of interlocking brick paths, established perennials and shrubs, and irrigation systems, will give outdoor enjoyment in all seasons. Situated on three lots for ample space and privacy, while being a short walk to the river, Broadway, Downtown, Remai Art Gallery, and University, this house is a gem in the picturesque neighbourhood of University Drive and is ready to be your new home.
