Suburban Canadian home furnished with hardwood flooring
Suburban Canadian home furnished with hardwood flooring A century-old home in suburban Thornhill, Canada, features a cottage-like atmosphere and includes a number of recent updates that make it an appealing choice for prospective homebuyers. The National Post reports that along with an attractive appearance, its proximity to a local pond make it especially alluring.
According to the news source, although the house has been renovated in recent years, it still retains its early 20th century charm. The two-bathroom, two-bedroom brick building was updated with stainless steel counters in the bathroom and kitchen as well as hardwood flooring.
"It's rare to find a home with so much original character in this part of Thornhill," real estate agent David Bloch told the news provider.
Homeowners looking to add an antique characteristic to their own abode may want to consider installing hardwood flooring. Along with providing a natural elegance to any room, the National Wood Flooring Association reports that the material is relatively easy to maintain. Along with regular sweeping with a soft-bristle broom, experts advocate occasionally using a vacuum with a brush attachment to remove any dirt or debris.
