707 Schofield Street, Pincher Creek

Now is your chance! This charming home belonged to Timothee Lebel, a prominent businessman in the early 1900s. He lived here with his family after they moved out of the Lebel Mansion next door. With three bedrooms and 1700 sq. ft. of circa 1900 character, this is a unique home that has been lovingly restored. The owner has worked with the local museum and a heritage consultant with the Province of Alberta to ensure that the restoration was done appropriately. Recently a journalist for the local paper wrote a story about the owner’s experience restoring this heritage home. Here is a link to that story. http://cgi.bowesonline.com/pedro.php?id ... xid=416453

Original features include wood floors throughout the home, high ceilings, kitchen wainscotting, clawfoot tub, and a corner mirrored cabinet with the original glass. There are original doors throughout the home, with the original handles and some keys. All doors tightly close. In the master bedroom there are French-style double windows that open in the middle, with the original hardware. A period ceiling fixture was acquired for this room. Other interesting features include a second stairway to an upstairs bedroom and original light fixtures, windows and storm windows. The double enamel kitchen sink is in very good condition.

What’s new? The home was totally re-painted in historical colours on the outside and the inside. Crown moulding has been added in the living room. The wood floors throughout the home have been refinished by Rocky Mountain Foors, Lethbridge. The plumbing is all new. There is a new pedestal sink and toilet, bathtub taps, new connections for a stackable washer/dryer in the bathroom and a gas hot water tank. The kitchen has an original 1910 cabinet and a professional cabinetmaker created new cabinets to match. There is also a new kitchen countertop, sink taps, and a brand new refrigerator. Two new exterior window boxes have been added under the living room and dining room windows. A new deck, in three continuous sections, has been built across the back of the house. It overlooks a very peaceful backyard. The land adjoining the property, on two sides, is owned by the Town of Pincher Creek and is part of the historic Lebel Mansion property. This provides lots of green space around the property. The owner has installed a new electric garage door and a back door to the garage and has tastefully decorated the home including new blinds, rods and draperies which are included.

The owner has obtained copies of pictures of the original owners from the local museum. She has had them professionally reproduced and they are now framed and hung for the new owner.

This home is located on a quiet street, a short walk to downtown, and has a cozy look outside and large rooms inside. It is in immaculate “move-in” condition. The owner is moving out of province. Asking price $249,500. Please call Pat at 1-403-432-0277 (cell), 1-403- 488-1420, or email: pjardine@shaw.ca
