Homefinder: A welcoming cottage
La Niche is a commuter’s dream. It’s only a seven-minute walk into Hamilton from this two-bedroom cottage in Pembroke.
A welcoming arms staircase, wood flooring, a private patio and “lovely” views add to its appeal.
Harbour Realty Ltd is offering the property, at 10 Hillsdale Avenue, for $775,000.
“This is a charming Bermuda cottage which is perfect for a young, growing family, or someone looking to downsize for retirement,” said realtor Jonelle Smith. “The home is well maintained and located close to Hamilton, with some views of the harbour and some glimpses of the South Shore from the covered porch.
“Walk up the welcoming arms stairs to a lovely covered veranda leading to the foyer/hallway. The charm of the wood-burning fireplace, with lovely wooden surround, and the original wooden floors add to the attraction of the cottage.”
The home is spread over one level, and has plenty of storage space, Mrs Smith added.
“There is plenty of cupboard and countertop space in the kitchen as well as an area that can hold a breakfast table for casual dining,” she said. “Off the kitchen is a laundry area with appliances in place. A master bedroom has a good size, updated bathroom with walk-in shower. The second bathroom has a tub/shower and can be used for guests. There is an additional bedroom towards the front of the house. Stairs leading out to the backyard off the kitchen will take you to a patio area ideal for outdoor entertaining. The lawn has mature foliage and is very well taken care of. A large basement provides plenty of room for storage, a workshop, or even the opportunity to build an apartment. There is ample parking, and it is only a seven-minute walk into Hamilton!”
