Exterior / Garage
The quality of this executive bungalow strikes you, the moment you step through the front door. You immediately notice the 10 foot ceilings on the main floor, the hardwood flooring and the expanse of flexible spaces.
The tiled entrance has a coat closet to your left and an elegant display niche ahead to your right.
A couple of steps up from the entrance and on your right, you will find a room that could have a multitude of uses. Maybe you envisage your dining table and chairs sat atop the hardwood flooring, especially with there being an alcove for your buffet unit. Or maybe you see yourself working from home at your desk in what would be a spacious den. Or perhaps this is an additional family room or a music room. The possibilities are endless. Whatever use you assign to this room, you will adore the bay window to the front, where you can look out over your landscaped front yard.
Beyond this room lies the sumptuous kitchen, with its array of white, extended height cabinetry and plentiful supply of pan drawers. A door leads to the corner pantry, where you will appreciate the upgraded solid shelving that curves around the perimeter of the pantry. All the appliances are upgraded LG stainless steel models. The granite counter-tops are just beautiful. The central island features a double silgranit sink with a garburator beneath and an extendable hose faucet above. It also features a breakfast bar that comfortably seats two people. You’ll love the updated pendant lights above the island and the pot lights that further illuminate your work space. There is a gas line behind the stove, if cooking with gas is your preference.
The kitchen is adjacent to the bright and sunny dining nook, which, like the kitchen, is laid with hardwood flooring. Here you will find an upgraded chandelier light fixture and double aspect windows with transoms above, dressed with cellular shades, drapery rods and drapes. There is a glazed door, also with a transom above, out to the large and private rear yard deck.
The hardwood flooring continues into the large living room where you will love the thermostatically controlled gas fireplace, with its stone surround and mantle above. The fireplace has windows to either side and above, and there is also a window to the side of the room bringing further light in. All the windows have quality cellular shades, drapes and drapery rods. Whilst here, pause for a moment and note that your media needs are well catered for. You will find speaker “posts” on the walls, so that you can hook up your surround sound speakers and there is a cable point and electrical outlet so that you can easily mount a television on the wall. You will also see that there is a wiring channel in the wall so that you can hide media wiring in the wall.
An arched passage from the living room takes you through a door into the huge master retreat, which features hardwood flooring and a large window to the rear dressed with a room darkening cellular shade, drapes and a drapery rod. Step into your size-able walk-in closet and you’ll love the upgraded closet organizers, which is a feature you will find in all the closets in this home. You’ll adore the custom made sliding door that reveals the arched entrance to your 5 pc en-suite bathroom that has tile flooring. There is a medicine cabinet and plenty of cabinets and drawers beneath the his and hers sinks. The deep soaker tub is set beneath a glass block window set in a diamond pattern. There is also a glass door walk-in shower with a bench.
We are not finished with the main floor yet!
Heading back towards the entrance, a passage on your right leads past the mud/laundry room. Here, the laundry pair are set beneath a convenient clothes folding counter that has cabinetry above to store your laundry supplies and such.
Beyond the mud/laundry room is a very well proportioned main floor second bedroom that has carpeted flooring, a double closet with upgraded closet organizers and the window to the room is dressed with a cellular shade.
The second bedroom is conveniently located next to the 4 pc main floor bathroom.
From the main level, a carpeted staircase leads down to be beautifully finished basement which has 9 ft ceilings and also benefits from in floor heat throughout!
At the base of the stairs, you enter into a broad carpeted space, that is set up as a recreation room to the right and a family room to the left. The recreation area features a dart board that will stay with the home. There are two large windows in the family room area, bringing plenty of natural light to the area. Adjacent to the family room, you will find a double arch that leads into a further carpeted space that could be used as an exercise area but was originally conceived as an area for a future wet bar. The rear wall of this space backs directly into the utility/storage room and it would be a simple task to bring plumbing lines from the utility room to this rear wall, to facilitate the construction of a wet bar, if you so wished.
Beside the staircase is a passage, along which you will find a linen closet, again with upgraded closet organizers.
Towards the end of the passage, on your left, is a wonderful third bedroom, which is very spacious and has carpeted flooring, a large window dressed with a room darkening cellular shade, an alcove that would be ideal for a desk and a large walk-in closet with upgraded closet organizers.
This third bedroom is conveniently located adjacent to the 4 pc basement bathroom.
Beyond the basement bathroom is a further example of how flexible this floor plan is, with an excellent room that would make a wonderful hobby space or a den. Plenty of light comes through the large window. The addition of a closet would even allow you to make this a very comfortable 4th bedroom.
Completing the basement is the enormous utility/storage room. So often, a basement development leaves little room for storage. That’s not the case here. Along with the storage space, you will find a high efficient furnace, the in floor heat system and a water softener.
Plenty of curb appeal here with this highly upgraded Morrison built bungalow, set on a landscaped corner lot that backs to the community walking paths and green space.
Being the corner lot, you only have one neighbour and plenty of additional parking to use when you are entertaining guests. The front yard features a double driveway leading to your double attached garage. Note the elegant stonework to either side of the garage and especially around the beautiful bay window to the front of the home. A concrete path leads to the steps to your covered front porch. Even these are upgraded, with exposed aggregate risers. You will also appreciate the screen door, allowing you to bring cooling breezes through the home on those warmer Summer days where you don’t want to use the air conditioning. The front yard also features a lawn area, in which is set both a maturing tree and a very attractive triple lamp light fixture.
The left side yard features low maintenance shale and hosts the air conditioning unit as well as a gate to the fully fenced rear yard.
The rear yard is a delight. You will adore the massive deck with its darkened glass panels offering great privacy, a feeling that is enhanced by the row of trees along the south perimeter fence. The deck also features a gas BBQ tap for those times when you want to cook outside.
The yard also features a lawn area that has maturing shrubs and a three lamp light fixture that matches the one situated in the front yard. A gate at the rear of the yard leads out to the expansive walking paths and green spaces that weave through this ever popular community. The rear yard vinyl shed can be included with the sale if the buyer wishes.
The double attached garage is fully boarded and insulated. You will very much appreciate the storage in the roof trusses that is accessed via a loft ladder. There is plenty of scope for you to add further storage shelves on the walls of the garage.
Note that the shingles, fascia and downspouts were recently replaced.
