Property Description

TORNADO-PROOF - known locally as the Stanley Knight home, this unique house, custom-built like a fortress in 1962 (the Cold War era) was built on 12 centres, on top of a bomb shelter basement (concrete ceiling and 17 wide horizontal concrete ceiling beams). The lot is 150 ft wide, bounded by a creek and ravine on the South side and a variety of mature deciduous trees on the East side (rear), which also has a seasonal view of the bay. Inside the brick walls (laid by a British Master Bricklayer) on the main floor is a solid wooden wall, post and beam style, for strength, insulation and soundproofing, which is insulated and drywalled, with some exposed beams. Red Oak Flooring is throughout. The basement is fully finished with a kitchen and dining area, rec room, laundry area, 3 pce bath and spray-foam insulated cold room. Improvements include all operating windows, furnace, central air conditioning unit, 2 natural gas free-standing stoves, 3 bathroom renovations and complete interior paint. There are 4 entrance as the house was formerly a Duplex and could be again. Detached brick double garage, with stairs to upper level with (unfinished) hardwood floors and a mini-bomb shelter at the rear of the garage. With 150' frontage, ample parking and separate entrances, this would make an ideal spot for a professional, in-law suite, or duplex. (id:885)
