Three Bedroom Family Home with Suite

1396 SF


This three-bedroom family home’s exterior boasts Victoria arts-and-crafts touches, such as gabled roofs, decorative wooden bracing over the porch and an oval window that illuminates the stairwell. Inside, the layout includes all the amenities a contemporary family could wish for. The covered entry leads to the foyer on the ground floor. To the left, a den is ideally located to serve as a home office, separated as it is from the living area upstairs. Beyond the den, the unfinished basement with a roughed-in three-piece bathroom could provide space for a mortgage helper or in-law suite, where local by-laws allow. Storage space is tucked under the stairway, and a coat closet is handy to the entrance. Upstairs, the great room occupies prime space at the front of the home. Next to a gas fireplace, a railing separates the room from the staircase. Flowing from the great room, the dining room enjoys access to a partly covered deck, ideal for year-round barbecuing. An optional built-out buffet will provide extra storage space and a handy        serving area for more formal meals. The kitchen is separated from the dining room by a large prep island. Plenty of counter space will ease meal-making chores. The window over the double sink looks out to a covered patio, where stairs lead down to the back garden. A flight of four stairs divides the sleeping wing from the rest of the second floor. The master suite, which overlooks the back garden, includes a spacious walk-in closet. The ensuite includes double sinks and a shower stall, as well as a soaker tub for that touch of luxury. The secondary bedrooms both look over the side garden, and share a three-piece bathroom. The laundry area is on the ground floor, up a flight of four steps. The double garage includes a roomy workshop area. This home measures 40 feet wide and 51 feet, six inches deep, for a total of 1,396 square feet of living space.
