This modern "vintage vibe"  home was renovated taking into consideration its legal duplex designation of two single units one above the other and future expansion of a third floor with master plan for a multi generational home. The initial renovation took place in the early 1990's when the entire second floor was gutted to create an open concept living space with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room for 6-12 and small home office for two.  In the late 90's, with a potential nanny flat in mind,  the basement was finished to include a larger home office/bedroom, laundry facilities, bathroom, mudroom and recreation space .  In addition, the existing garage & exterior stair/deck were upgraded and a new raised patio was built.  In the early 2000's the first floor apartment was renovated so the home could be utilized by a single family with the option to use the ground floor as a multi generational unit or rental.  The ground floor includes a small home office and sitting area close to the front entry, entertainment room for movie watching, kitchenette, bedroom and bath/steam room.  2023...and the renovation saga continues....current plans are to update the existing spaces to reflect empty nester needs, expand to incorporate a third floor, exterior renovation to upgrade the facade, build a new front porch and modify entrance for the main floor rental unit.
