63 Durham Street is a design-lover's dream. The old home, located in downtown Guelph, was rebuilt by local builder Mezcon Construction.
It’s exciting to see the result.
Take a look at any of Mezcon’s recent work and try not to be impressed. The thoughtfully planned spaces, attention to detail, high-quality finishes—their whole esthetic—seems especially well suited for modern tastes and those who love a little luxury.
This home, which had been vacant and was definitely in need of some work, was completely renovated, head to toe, with a second floor added. The builder kept the main floor structure intact, preserving some of the property's original charm.
“It’s a beautiful brick bungalow and although we added a second floor, we stayed true to the heritage by maintaining the arched windows and original roof lines. The house has a lot of character, it’s a very special property,” says Karla Fischer, project manager.
63 Durham Street was rebuilt with modern interiors and wood and black accents throughout. The main floor boasts 9’ ceilings, with plenty of natural light streaming in and a beautiful view of the backyard. The main floor is equipped with an office, a mudroom and an open concept living space, as well as a walk-in pantry and a powder room.
Throughout the 3-bed, 3-bath, 2372 sq. ft. home, the homeowner can enjoy hardwood flooring, quartz countertops, LED lighting and top-of-the-line finishes. High-end appliances in the kitchen, a stone accent fireplace in the living room and stunning black windows round out this beautifully redesigned home.
The second level floorplan is thoughtfully laid out with two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a primary bedroom with an elegant full bath, a walk-in closet and a laundry room. The primary ensuite is a true gem, equipped with a soaker tub, double sinks and a curb-less shower.
The exterior maintains traditional elements, such as the arched windows to stay true to the home’s original spirit and character. Of course, a few modern details have been added, such as built-in audio which can be enjoyed on both the front and back porches.
The home is situated on a pool-sized lot and surrounded by mature trees, creating a generous outdoor living area.
The neighbourhood is both beautiful and central. You’re within walking distance to shops and downtown and close to Guelph’s beloved Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate. It’s quite a peaceful area, notes Fischer, surrounded by lots of huge trees.
Mezcon recently completed a house reno just down the street. Check out their social media for photos.
Because of the pandemic, there has been a dramatic cost increase that has affected all building materials. It couldn’t be a more perfect time to buy a home of this quality, essentially a brand-new build with all a design enthusiast could ever want.
