Note: the property was SOLD on Offer Night, Monday June 29th, when the Sellers accepted a firm (unconditional) offer, from among the 4 offers which were submitted and reviewed. Thank you, for your interest in this wonderful property - congratulations to both the Buyer and Sellers!
For more information, please email: SteveDawkins@REMAX.net ... the GuelphHomes.com gang and the Sellers thank you for your interest in the property*, and also the process of marketing the home in a #COVID19 Health & Safety 1st, Best Practices & Methods manner.
(*If you don't live in Guelph already, we can help fix that :-) just shoot us a quick email and we'll let you know what the first steps of how we would go about that - no obligation, and no pressure**)
(**In-fact, we insist that you a) speak with at least one other Realtor seeking your business before you get back to us, and b) that you think/mull over what we send in reply to your query for at least 24 hours - irrespective of how quickly you may effect 'a' before letting us know if you would like to proceed to explore the prospects of our working together further. If that doesn't sound fair and reasonable, just let us know how you would prefer to structure a preliminary 'mutual assessment' of one another, and I'm sure we'll probably be fine with that approach instead :-)

Pride of ownership shows throughout this 3 bed, 3 bath home, with Gable dormer windows nestled on a private oasis in a much desired mature, quiet neighbourhood.
An expansive Living Room with hardwood floors, a large full-height window for plenty of natural light, and a stone, wood-burning fireplace. A second fireplace in the cozy Family room that leads to the back deck and the Bright Eat-in Kitchen. A separate Dining Room (currently an office) and a 2 piece bath finish the main level. Upstairs you will find three generous sized Bedrooms with hardwood floors, tons of storage spaces, and a 4 piece bathroom.
The Basement is 'reno-ready' with a separate entrance, offers additional living space, a large Recreation Room, Laundry room, 3 piece Bath, and a bonus room. Plus, a huge workshop for the hobby carpenter, or gardener. OR, call in a Contractor or few for some quotes to transform this space into a legal, registered apartment - Guelph needs all the complying rental stock it can manifest, and while nothing would be certain until you had your building permit (as is the case anywhere, of course) in-hand, it's really hard to think of a reason why that wouldn't be forthcoming in something approaching 'quick time.'
If you love to entertain, you will adore the lush, private fully fenced backyard, featuring a fabulous in-ground salt water pool & shed, surrounded by a stone patio & beautiful landscaping. Winter pool cover makes opening and closing the pool very easy. An attached garage and a brand new roof, are just some of the many pluses this house offers. Close to all amenities, down the street from June Ave Public School and only minutes to the GoTrain, 401 via Hanlon Parkway, with Parks, Shopping and more all within a couple minutes drive or a 15 minute walk. Brentwood Drive and the surrounding area is an oft-undervalued area of town, but take the time to walk the block - mature, well-maintained, owner-occupied, safe, family-friendly, with lots of recent and impending renos left, right and centre!
I don't quote Wayne Gretzky a lot, as a Bobby-Orr-is-the-Greatest kinda guy [i got his autograph when I was 6 or 7, lived beside Harry Sinden, Bruins GM/Coach back in that day - just a few years after this Classic '64 was built, in fact - in Amherstview, just west of Kingston, past Collins Bay, on the Bath Road. Back then, an NHL GM/Coach like Harry still had to have a summer job/career, and Harry was a Realtor, even though we agents were branded differently in those days]. But a paraphrase is required here, so sorry Bobby - and Harry: Brentwood Drive, and especially 78 Brentwood Drive, is not just where the puck is now, but also where it's going to keep going, steadily, persistently, relentessly - this is not just a wonderful home - it's also an outstanding investment, imo, although I do admit a bit of bias. Seriously though, I challenge anyone to show me a better, more exciting property of it's type/kind on the market, and that may also hold true for 'anytime this year' in the area. Good luck, and don't hesitate to send us an email with tales of woe or victory!
