Stunning little home with a ton of personality
12818 Armstrong Avenue, Summerland, BC
Shelley Parker listing MLS #170225
The first word that comes to mind when viewing this sweet little 1950’s house, is “character”. It certainly has loads of it and with not that much TLC it will transform into a standout home.
The house which sits at the base of Giant’s Head Mountain on the north side is also handily located just a few blocks from downtown Summerland.
It may look small but in fact it has 2224+ square feet and contains 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and over 2000 square feet of living space. It also has 3 separate entrances to the home, which makes it ideal for a potential in-law suite downstairs. The house itself has 8.5 ft ceilings on the main floor with, well maintained all-original cabinetry, a wood stove in the living room, in-floor radiant heat, and also has a newer roof and windows.
The beautiful corner .17 acre lot also has a detached workshop built in 2005 with lane access, 220 power and a 2 piece bathroom. One of the lovely aspects of this property is the lush gardens which include a very private pergola for outside summer dining.
The remarkable stone masonry which is similar in look to the old St. Stephen Anglican Church just across the street, was hand-finished by Cecil Wade, one of Summerland's early entrepreneurs.
To appreciate this house and it’s surrounding property you really need to see it in person. Have Shelley or Blaine give you a guided tour.
