Welcome to 5284 South St. This architecturally designed and beautifully updated South End home glows from the love and care given to it by its owners. Designed by one of Canada's most award winning and internationally renowned architects, Brian Mackay-Lyons, the home is a modern re-interpretation of a classic Halifax home, with a layout designed for gracious modern living. Enter the classic storm porch (newly renovated and re-insulated) and your eyes are drawn through the fully open-concept main floor to the 2-storey wall of south facing windows. The house is designed to capture passive solar energy and to bring in lots of natural light. The newly renovated kitchen is ready for entertaining with high-end appliances, quartz counters, custom cabinets, and a custom wall of windows by Charles Street Metalcraft. The large living room has a cozy pellet stove and flows into the sunny dining room, ready for parties and open to your patio for summer entertaining. The 2nd floor has soaring ceilings with a large family room and the primary bedroom and renovated bathroom. The 3rd floor has a large loft that's an envious work from home space, and a private balcony with south-facing ocean views. The lower level has a guest bedroom and large full bath with jet tub. The private, off-street parking in your garage is a rare bonus and great for an EV. The backyard is sunny and fenced for privacy and pups. Recent upgrades include the electric panel and hot water tank (2023), heat pump (2021), new windows (2021), custom garage door (2020), metal roof, and more, providing low-maintenance and sustainability for years to come and an amazing alternative to a condo. All of this, with the extra bonus of an incredible location a few minutes walk from downtown, hospitals, and universities. Drinks at the Henry House, dinners at La Frasca, strolls along the waterfront, and local goodies at the farmers market are all at your doorstep. Properties this stunning in this area are exceptionally rare!More details
