The basement offers a recreation room, two massive bedrooms, one with a terrific walk-in closet, a full bathroom & storage. Central vac, water softener, Hunter Douglas blinds & more!
Step through the half (privacy) glazed front door into the tiled floor entrance of what might be your new home! There's a coat closet conveniently located to your left.
Immediately on your right is a carpeted and spacious main floor den. There’s plenty of space for the home worker or hobbyist to work here. A large window, dressed with a Hunter Douglas Venetian blind, brings in plenty of natural light and offers views of your front porch and yard.
Along the passage leading towards the rear of the home, you'll find an architectural niche and a display shelf.
The large carpeted living room features an elegant gas fireplace with a tile surround and hearth and a wooden mantle. A window, dressed with a Hunter Douglas Venetian blind, looks out to your private rear yard.
The kitchen offers plenty of counter-top space for food preparation and lots of cabinetry for storage. Upgraded stainless steel appliances include a very cool, internet connected 2 door 2 drawer Samsung refrigerator, a Samsung stainless steel microwave/convection oven with integrated hood fan and a Samsung stainless steel Flex Duo convection oven with 5 burner ceramic top and warming drawer. You will find a double sink in the island, where you will also see a raised breakfast bar and contemporary lighting above. You'll love the spacious walk through pantry with its attractive reeded glass door, shelves on both sides and its super practical tile flooring (no having to take your shoes off when you come in from the garage with your shopping).
The kitchen is open plan with the generously proportioned dining area, which benefits from an alcove for your buffet unit. The dining area has a large window, dressed with a Hunter Douglas Venetian blind, that overlooks your rear yard deck and you will also find a door granting access to the rear yard.
Completing the main floor are the 2-piece half bathroom and the the spacious mud/laundry room which has a tiled floor and leads to the walk through pantry. The area benefits from a window to the side of the home, bringing in natural light. The washing machine and dryer are upgraded LG steam models and come with pedestals, ideal for storing detergent and such. There is also some cabinetry for additional storage, with a clothes folding counter.
The staircase to the upper level is carpeted and features elegant wooden handrails and pickets, a chandelier light fixture and a large window dressed with a Hunter Douglas Nantucket blind.
To your right at the top of the stairs are the double doors leading into the very large master bedroom. This carpeted room will easily accommodate a king size bed and it benefits from an attractive ceiling fan/light fixture and a large window, dressed with a Hunter Douglas Venetian blind, overlooking your rear yard.
A door leads to the spacious 4 piece en-suite, which has a tiled floor, a deep corner soaker tub beneath double aspect windows dressed with Hunter Douglas Venetian blinds, a sink with storage beneath and an adjacent make up table and a privacy glass door walk in shower. An arch leads through to the large walk-in closet.
The carpeted second and third bedrooms are both very good sizes and they share the 4 piece family bathroom, which has tile flooring, a long counter-top with a make-up table beneath, a medicine cabinet and a linen closet. Each bedroom has a closet and a window dressed with a Hunter Douglas Venetian blind.
Towards the front of the upper level is the large, carpeted bonus room, an ideal place for the family to gather or for the kids to play. Two large windows, dressed with Hunter Douglas Venetian blinds, overlook the front of the home and the walking paths opposite.
Exterior / Garage / Workshop
Take the carpeted staircase down from the main level to the fully finished basement.
To your left as you reach the base of the stairs is a good sized recreation area/family room, which could have a multitude of uses. Adjacent to this area is the 4-piece bathroom, which has a tiled floor and a shower over the bath tub.
You will also find two excellent sized bedrooms, both of which are carpeted. One of the bedrooms has a double door entrance, (glass panel French doors are also available if you prefer,) and an enormous walk-in closet. This room would alternatively make a terrific home studio or hobby area with the closet offering a great way to keep things tidy by tucking away all your equipment.
The utility room features a Lennox furnace, a hot water tank, a Culligan water softener and the canister for the Nilfisk central vacuum system. There's also very good storage.
Further storage space can also be found underneath the staircase.
This 2 storey home has plenty of curb appeal and is just a few steps away from a local park and almost directly opposite the nearest access to the walking path system that connects the various parts of family friendly Drake Landing and beyond. You are also just a few minute walk to all the local shops at the junction of Milligan Drive and 32nd St and a few minutes more will see the kids arrive safely at Dr Morris Gibson School. Also just a short walk away is the new French Immersion school, Ecole BeauSoleil, on Milligan Drive and, opening in September 2019, the new K-9 school on 32nd St, which, itself is opposite Holy Trinity Academy High School.
The double front driveway has well manicured lawn areas to either side, a maturing tree and attractive planted borders. A concrete walkway leads to your covered front porch, which, given it is south facing, is a delightful spot to sit out and watch the world go by!
The side yard between number 3 and number 5 is fenced front and back but not between the homes, a testament to how neighbourly the area is - this space being used as a joint dog run between the two homes.
The extremely private rear yard is fenced on all sides and has plenty of lawn area for the kids to play in safety whilst you relax on your deck, with its low maintenance aluminum rails. You can also admire the pretty planted border, full of maturing shrubs, that lines the rear of the yard and the tree right by the deck, both of which beautifully screen the deck and the yard, so that you can enjoy your own private space. There are also some raised borders on the East side.
The double attached garage measures approximately 20 ft wide x 22 ft 8” deep and would comfortably accommodate two vehicles. There is plenty of opportunity for you to add your finishing touches and storage solutions here.
