240 Superior Avenue SW Calgary T3C 2H9 : Scarboro
SOLD OVER THE LISTING PRICE!
We’re extremely proud to present this incredible family home for the first time in 60 years! Tucked away in the prized Scarboro neighbourhood, more than a century removed from when it was first developed in 1910 and grew through Calgary's first land boom of 1912. The area was originally developed by the Canadian Pacific Railway on a Dominion land grant. As history goes, a 25-foot lot was $250. While the cost of living has certainly changed over time the desire for an inner-city neighbourhood straight off the silver screens of the past has not. Victorian style homes still line these streets and are only shadowed by the 100+ year old trees that hold the canopy over the rolling hills of the neighbourhood. The winding streets and parks were perfect for any kid with a bike, and they’ll continue to be for another 100 years or more. Dog walkers, runners and families alike will be close enough to touch downtown, but far enough to get away for the evenings and weekends. This home is immaculate, and it’s been a joy hearing stories and comments from passers-by “They really loved this home”, “He was out here everyday fixing something”, or “This is one of the most beautiful homes in the city”. Inside is no different with original milled woodwork throughout, gorgeous hardwood under the blue carpet. Enjoy it while you work your way through the study and sitting rooms to the massive kitchen which was properly extended in the early 90’s with a full concrete foundation extension to make the most important part of the house the biggest part of the house. The upper-level features 4 bedrooms, one-of-which is the primary that is huge and has the potential for a lot of uses. The third story is a converted attic space that makes a perfect 5th bedroom/bonus room. For a 111-year-old house this basement is as good as they get with a full height ceiling, large rec room, 6th bedroom (non-egress), additional bathroom and laundry room. The sprawling yard is highlighted by a stone patio, fire pit and oversized double garage with heat! If you’re inclined to watch the summer sun set over the neighbourhood, there’s no better place than the front porch that is so welcoming to all. Head to 17th ave, The Calgary Tennis Club or drop the little ones at Sunalta School or walk to the C-train line. Whatever your goal is, this house can fulfill. We’d invite you to book a showing and come walk through one of Calgary’s remaining gems. Thanks for your interest, we can’t wait to find the next savvy owner to bring this home along for the next 60 years!
