What a remarkable home and property! As described in a City of Lacombe report, "the Parsons Residence, built circa 1912, is significant as a superb and intact example of middle-class Edwardian-era housing in Lacombe, and is valued as a reminder of the early development of the City's middle class residential neighbourhoods." Percy and Ida Parsons were its first owners and lived in it until 1919.The character home sits on a prominent corner in downtown Lacombe and is conveniently located within walking distance of the City's schools, churches, LMC, library, pool, arena, curling rink, trails, parks, playgrounds, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks, post office, restaurants, coffee shops, doctors, dentists, and other professional services. The fenced and well treed yard has a peaceful and private feel to it. It includes a solid deck, firepit, and 10' x 7' storage shed as well. The insulated and heated (furnace currently disconnected from gas) garage has strong bones and also provides a bonus spot behind it with room to park an RV just off the back lane.The exterior has an great look to it with its pyramidal roof, bellcast eaves, hipped dormers, and full width front (and screened) verandah. The Arts and Crafts styled home looks like it should be in a movie or on the cover of a book. The roof has been refinished and the verandah screened in after 1999. Just imagine sitting on the verandah and sipping a lemonade on a warm summer's evening.Stain glass, an antique pedestal bathtub, hardwood flooring, 8' 10" ceilings, and built-in china cabinets are just some of the beautiful original features you'll find inside. The home has its practical side as well. The rooms are of a good size with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are maple cabinets and modern flooring in the kitchen, a gas insert fireplace in the living room, a sump in the basement, and a convenient back entrance addition that includes a main floor laundry area. Prior to its purchase in 2002, the home had benefitted from a number of upgrades including 21 vinyl windows (1994), improved wiring, added insulation (interior walls and attic), a 92% efficient furnace, and PVC plumbing.The basement is only under the back section of the house. The floor was redone and covered with a sub flooring. In 1988, Richards Consulting conducted a Structural Engineering inspection addressing the structural integrity of the concrete foundation. At that time, repairs were suggested and some remedial work was completed (and approved). The report made additional observations and grading recommendations. We have provided these supplemental documents so prospective buyers are aware that some foundation issues have been addressed.Zoned R4, the ideally located, 78' x 120' lot will, no doubt, attract the attention of developers. However, we expect a strong interest from buyers who want to maintain and make this beauty their next home. Come take a look and decide for yourself.
