It didn’t take long for the owners of Sheddon to realize they had just purchased the perfect family home. Not only had they secured one of Oakville’s most desirable locations on the corner of Sheddon and Watson, but they were delighted when they realized that their corner lot was perhaps one of the quietest in the neighbourhood since no car parking was allowed outside of their home at any time. This perk made for peaceful times enjoying their screened in front porch and afforded them a certain tranquility in an otherwise downtown location.
Today, almost 30 years later, Sheddon is ready to welcome a new family. This 2,921 sq ft, four bedroom home, or three beds with lounge/office, has been lovingly updated to make room for conveniences such as an open floor plan, large master closet and a generous mudroom entry while maintaining historic details such as formal dining and living rooms, trim work, finished on-site hardwood floors and of course the timeless exterior.
The main level is best thought of as a wide space with casual living in the back half of the house followed by two large, principal rooms flanking the formal front entrance. The main level rounds out with two fireplaces, one wood burning, a rebuilt staircase and replaced windows all around. The upper level offers a master wing of sorts. A private area of the home with a large walk-through closet to an even larger en-suite. Two good sized kid’s rooms and a large shared bathroom. The fourth bedroom or office rests above the front porch, a teenager’s dream bedroom or, perhaps a quiet retreat for office work.
A wide staircase leads to the lower level. Newer carpeting and large windows make for a fresh and inviting space. Good ceiling height, a tidy-remodeled laundry room, 2-piece bath and a bonus room dubbed the ‘hot yoga studio’ courtesy of the gas fireplace.
All-in-all Sheddon is a place anyone would be proud to call home, suited to the needs of a busy family, casual enough to raise young kids yet perfectly laid out for those formal occasions and get togethers.
