Historical Gem For Sale In Blackstock, Ontario

 

Welcome to 3482 Church Street located in Blackstock Ontario

Built in 1870, and still retaining many of its original characteristics, welcome to 3482 Church Street, a beautiful heritage home showcasing many modern updates, and situated within Scugog’s historic Blackstock community.
Nestled amongst a lush tree canopy within this quiet rural town, the home showcases a recent addition to the original homestead, as well as substantially sized front and back yards that can be transformed into dream outdoor living and entertaining spaces.

The majesty of its past remains present through its original brick exterior accented with gingerbread details, and the covered porch which wraps around three sides of the home.

The hardwood floors of the entrance hallway and foyer, as well as the open concept living and dining rooms, were replaced in the 1940s, and have since been refinished and stained, giving the floors a more contemporary look. The arched entryway between the formal living and dining areas has a set of solid wood bi-fold doors that maintains a separation between the rooms when necessary.

Original finishes can be still found throughout most of the home, and some of these include many of the door and window trims, extra deep baseboards, crown moldings, as well as the hand crafted staircase and its hardwood bannister to the second level.

The well-appointed powder room showcases a reclaimed hemlock hardwood floor, an updated vanity, wall moldings, and its overall elegance is enhanced by a chandelier.

Off the main hallway is a room with new broadloom which is beautifully suited as a family room or home office, and which also has a separate entrance from the porch as well as a large bay window overlooking the side yard.

A newer addition to the home, the incredibly spacious kitchen and breakfast area is finished with reclaimed hemlock hardwood floors, and showcases a built-in bookshelf, pot lighting and modern ceiling light fixtures, updated modern cabinetry with ample pantry space, built-in fridge and dishwasher as well as stainless steel oven with gas cooktop, hand hammered copper sink, and has retained some of the original brick exterior as an accent wall.

The upper level showcases the original hardwood floors of the home, and also features updates such as new broadloom and ceiling light fixtures – while a small room at the end of the hallway has a folding ladder to gain access to the rooftop tower.

All the bedrooms are graciously sized rest spaces, and the master bedroom showcases a gorgeous chandelier, wall moldings that highlight the coved ceiling, and a 2-pc ensuite with pedestal sink.

The updated family washroom is finished with a freestanding bathtub with gorgeous chandelier above it, a space-saving vanity, and a separate shower area.

The second bedroom has two entryways, one off the main hallway and the other off the secondary hallway, and features large windows and ample closet storage – and the third bedroom also has large windows and plenty of closet space, as well as a pedestal sink for guest or family convenience.

The new addition also features an unspoiled living space on this level, which has the potential to be converted into a dream master bedroom.

Beautifully updated, this historically significant home is within walking distance to places of worship, a convenience store, the Blackstock Recreation Complex, Cartwright Central Public School, and Cartwright High School; and is just a short 10 minute drive to nearby Port Perry for many more everyday conveniences and amenities.

5 Things to Know When Selling a Home by Yourself  

This is another great article written by Mark Weisleder, Mark is a GTA Real Estate lawyer who also does some guest speaking at seminars and is an Author as well. I find Marks comments and insight to be very helpful to both buyers and sellers. He also has a much better way of articulating the finer points so I bring to you one of his better articles on selling a home by yourself.

Article by Mark Weisleder: 

In the May 12, 2014 Toronto Star business section, 2 articles were presented on the merits of selling a home by yourself. In one article, Robb Engen wrote about the benefits of using a For Sale By Owner company. I wrote a separate article about why sellers need an experienced agent to get the best price. I am attaching my own article as well as a link to Robb’s article on the Toronto Star website. Please feel free to email me or the Star with your comments about both of these articles. I look forward to your feedback.
I happen to believe that in most cases you will be better protected and make more money selling your house if you use an agent.

Here’s why:

You don’t have to pay up-front: Do-it-Yourself marketing companies are not real estate agents. You usually pay $1,000-to- $2,000 up front, for pictures, videos and to have your home listed on the MLS system. However, you get no money back if your home doesn’t sell. With a real estate agent, if your home doesn’t sell, you pay nothing, even though the agent may have spent a lot of time marketing and using all of their own and their company contacts to sell your home.

A bidding war is unlikely: Bidding wars are the norm in the GTA and other parts of Ontario. In virtually all cases, the home is sold by a real estate agent. The reason is that it takes experience to price the home properly. Second, the process is fair because no one knows what anyone else is bidding. With a private seller, there is no duty of confidentiality, so the seller can tell one buyer what another buyer is bidding. Buyers do not trust the process so there is no bidding war.

You negotiate on your own: When you do it yourself, it is difficult to know what a fair price is for your home. You might have to pay an appraiser to find out. When a buyer hears that you are saving commission, they will want to split the savings. So you don’t get all the commission savings and you also have to negotiate with a buyer who is likely represented by a real estate agent. This agent will use all their experience to figure out how low you will go, while giving nothing away about their own buyer.

Not knowing your obligations: Sellers cannot rely on the term “Buyer Beware.” You have to disclose problems with your home and you cannot hide or cover up anything. Otherwise, you can still be sued after closing. Who wants a court fight long after you move?
Lenders are more cautious when they see a private deal: I have seen deals collapse this way. In one case, the lender sent their own appraiser because they were concerned the buyer paid too much money. The appraiser agreed and the buyer’s loan commitment was cancelled. The deal died.

In another case, the seller was worried the buyers did not have proper financing. They wanted more proof about the buyer’s financial situation than the buyer was willing to give. Lawyers became involved when things could not be worked out amicably. When buyers are represented by agents, they are usually pre-qualified in advance so the seller can have comfort that they will have the money available to close the deal on time.

When you’re out for a walk this weekend have a look at the For Sale signs and see how many are represented by realtors. There’s a reason for that.

By all means, try and sell your house on your own, just beware that it’s not as easy as it looks.

Thanks Mark – Great Article !!
