Century home a seamless mix of period details and modern updates

Arts and Crafts-style stucco home full of character and charm

Some homes are blessed with an utterly charming, storybook exterior, one that seems as if it was born from an author’s imagination. 

126 Glasgow Street North in Guelph is one such home. The 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house was built in 1850 and an addition was put on in the 1920s. With its pretty red shutters and lovely gardens, it has an undeniable curb appeal, projecting warmth and welcome.

The feeling starts with the front porch and enclosed foyer. Right away you know you’re in the presence of something special. 

At 2,220 sq. ft., the home offers plenty of room for day-to-day family living. It’s also a bit of a showpiece, chock full of interesting architectural detail, so you’ll definitely want to entertain here and show it off. 

Built in the Arts and Crafts style, this stucco home has a bellcast and gable roof. The interior boasts exquisite trim, high baseboards, crown molding, hardwood floors and soaring ceilings. 

“It’s a charming, stately home with spirits of yesteryear and modern comfort,” says Royal LePage Royal City Realty sales representative Lorna Ronald. 

There is a bright, formal living room with hardwood flooring, a bench window seat and lots of built-in shelving and cabinets to display cherished items. An adjoining dining room is the perfect spot to host celebrations for friends and family.

Also great for casual get-togethers is the comfortable and cozy family room, with its gas fireplace, hardwood floors and piano. A two-piece bath on the main floor is convenient for guests. 

Enjoy the lush garden view from the eat-in kitchen, which is well appointed with Old World Woodworking cabinetry, white subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, pot lights and a comfy corner dinette. 

The kitchen leads out onto a private stone patio with perennial gardens, mature trees and fencing. There is also a hookup for a gas BBQ. There’s room for both dining and lounging areas on the back patio, which is sure to be a popular and well-used place in the warmer months.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms have refinished pine floors. A renovated four-piece bath has all of the comforts: heated floors, a soaker tub and a walk-in shower with glass doors. 

The home has been very well-maintained and offers buyers the chance to appreciate the historic charm of the past while also enjoying top-quality, modern renovations. The garage has been converted into a workshop, which anyone who is handy or crafty will appreciate.

The location couldn’t be more convenient. You’re within walking distance of shops, restaurants and services—all of the wonderful amenities that await in downtown Guelph.
