"There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort" - Jane Austen. 25 Evergreen is your new "real comfort." If you know Lynwood Village, you will understand this sentiment. If you are not familiar with Lynwood Village, allow me to enlighten you... Designed and built by the late Bill Teron, Lynwood Village exemplifies the postwar visionary's idea of community. Lynwood, comprised of broad streets, elegantly simple homes and a mature landscape is today what it was intended to be in the late 1950's... A vibrant community where families live and build strong values for the next generation. The sturdy bungalow we are presenting to you is a reflection of the builder's idea. Occupied by the same family since 1963, 25 Evergreen is a testament to a visionary plan. The same values that inspired this community live on today.
The main floor, enhanced from the original design with a large addition provides more space than other similar homes in the community. The airy, awesome and accommodating living room was added to the front of the house creating an open concept feel, step up to the dining room to enjoy the commodious culinary chamber with friends and family by the fire. Break bread at breakfast in the family-friendly kitchen while overlooking your serene back yard. The Master suite offers rest, relaxation and rejuvenation with wide, wonderful windows that bring the outdoors indoors. The vintage luxury ensuite gives you a glimpse into the 60's style that we must never forget. The other two appropriately sized bed chambers were great for raising kits in the 1960s and they are still perfect today, bed, dresser, desk and done. The main bath offers a robins egg retro vibe that would be impossible to duplicate today so, embrace that blue and make it your own, I'll let you in on a little secret, there is some sweet hardwood under the carpets on the main level (except the living room). Harwood, hidden for decades is like discovering the tomb of Tutankhamun or Atlantis in the renovation world.
The lower level is a real gem, a large recreation room that has seen black and white television on three channels, the Quebec Nordiques, Montreal Expos and Ottawa Rough Riders, not to mention first run Gilligan's Island episodes. The cheers and laughter still echo through the room. The vibe of family fun is so thick you can cut it with a knife. The laundry/sewing room has seen a few prom dresses, and the workshop has seen legendary creations of all sorts like those of Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
This delightful family home full of history and happiness is waiting for the next generation of charming people to grab the keys and make it their own.
