Beautifully Maintained Cape Cod Style Home with a Pool!
Situated on a picturesque 100 foot wide lot surrounded by lush greenery and mature landscaping sits this charming Cape Cod style home with 4 bedrooms & 2.5 baths. This meticulously maintained home has been in the same family since it was built in the 60’s and if the walls could talk, you would hear stories of well attended street parties, backyard BBQ’s, pool parties on hot summer days, never ending games of street hockey and kick-the-can. This quiet crescent is where families settle in to raise their children, make lifelong memories and lasting neighbourhood friendships.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the interior space which includes formal living and dining rooms, an eat-in kitchen, powder room, and a main floor family room with patio doors leading to an entertainment size deck. Upstairs you’ll find 4 generous bedrooms all with great closet space. The primary suite is well located on one side of the house and features a lovely renovated ensuite plus a hidden storage room behind the wall of closets – a great place to hide gifts for the kids we’ve been told!  Three other bedrooms on this level share a second renovated bathroom. The lower level offers excellent additional space with a 5th bedroom/office, recreation room, laundry, workshop and lots of storage.
This fabulous corner lot was thoughtfully planned resulting in a few distinct and purposeful areas such as a raised patio at the end of the pool where you can sunbathe in absolute privacy, a lush lawn area for children to play,  a large deck off the family room where parties can spill outside and you can dine under the stars, and a handy storage shed tucked around the corner by the garage out of sight. All this surrounded by beautiful mature hedges, stunning flowering trees & shrubs and perennial gardens.
Important and environmentally responsible upgrades such as a new heat pump with a new natural gas backup furnace were installed in 2023 and keep monthly costs low.  Other upgrades include the Roof 2015, Front Walkway 2014, Pool Pump 2020, Pool Heater 2018 and most windows were replaced in 2013.
20 Welkin enjoys a quiet and enviable location in the neighbourhood with very little traffic due to the crescent having no other streets intersect within it. The neighbourhood has an abundance of parks including The General Burns Park nestled among the trees off  Chesterton Drive a two minute walk away.  The park offers a number of outdoor recreational activities including tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields, basketball court, an outdoor ice rink, play structure, and outdoor pool. The park is also home to the General Burns Community Centre. Choose from a variety of schools including Merivale High School, one of only two high schools in Ottawa to offer the acclaimed International Baccalaureate diploma program.
