If your vision of the ideal home includes feeling connected to nature, this Guelph side-split is worth a visit.
44 Rickson Avenue is a 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in family-friendly Hanlon Creek that blends the indoors and the outdoors quite naturally.
The home itself is clad in brick and white-painted aluminum siding and the front yard is beautifully landscaped, with mature trees, a rock garden and a winding walkway leading up to a covered porch.
The entryway is light and bright. On the main floor there is a living room with a big bay window that overlooks the stonework in the front yard, a separate dining room that seats 8-10 comfortably and a sunny kitchen with windows on two walls, an eat-in area and stainless-steel appliances.
Also on this level is a welcoming family room with maple hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, massive windows and double doors that open up onto a beautiful heated sunroom.
The primary bedroom has a 3-piece ensuite and each of the bedrooms feature big windows and generous closet space. The basement is partially finished.
Gardeners will be excited by the property. The sizeable backyard includes a brick patio for outdoor dining and lounging, several mature trees and large flower beds that have been planted with an array of perennials and a collection of daylilies. At 70’ by 129’, you could easily put a pool on a lot of this size.
This 46-year-old Alberta side-split home on Rickson Ridge overlooks St. Michael’s School and is close to the Hanlon Creek Conservation Area. In this well-established neighbourhood, parks, walking trails, schools and public transit are located nearby, all within easy walking distance. You can walk to get coffee, groceries or a light meal, with several convenient options nearby. The University of Guelph is just across the road.
