Welcome to this fabulous, completely renovated home. In classic traditional style, the façade catches your eye and draws you in. The vertical siding pulls your sight up to the sophisticated peak on the roof, and the front porch will make you feel at home right away.
Into the foyer you have high quality ceramic tile with fresh grout, a front hall closet and a custom designed storage area for kids with coat hooks and blackboard above for personalization! This floor also features a newly renovated (2014) powder room that any guest would be happy to use, and is perfect for after-dinner clean up.
The living room to your left is so inviting and is perfect for entertaining. The Brazilian Walnut flooring you see here is throughout the entire home. Also notice that the TV cables are built into the walls so there are no unsightly wires in plain sight. The natural light in this room is extraordinary.
The kitchen is definitely the heart of this huge family home. Custom designed by Laurysen Kitchens, this outstanding kitchen features a classic cabinet style with modern hardware finishes. Soft close doors and drawers, pantry space, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, marble backsplash, and lots of pot drawers make this space so functional. Note the under-valence lighting, pot lights, pendant lights and in-cabinet lighting; this space is perfect for any family.
Your dining room is big enough for any family gatherings…sit up to 30 people in this space! With lots of light and durable hardwood, you can enjoy every meal here. There is also a sliding patio door to you back yard. Look up! The medallion was commissioned by the current owners to reflect the historic feel of the home, and really adds a touch of times gone by in this modern space.
Through the custom French doors, you enter the main floor family room. The large windows in this room is absolutely impressive. With 9’ ceilings throughout the main floor, you have the sense of grandeur. Use this space for your TV or games room, or set it up as a main floor office.
Upstairs you will be amazed. The Brazilian Walnut flooring continues – even on the stairs – and you come to four massive bedrooms, a big landing for your bookshelf and extra storage, and the biggest, most functional second floor laundry room you have ever seen! With loads of storage and an ultra-quiet washer/dryer set, you can stay organized no matter the size of your family.
The three spare bedrooms are spacious enough for any child or guest, and all of them have closets and big windows. The main bathroom here is so luxurious your kids will feel like they’re at the spa every morning. Featuring a beautiful vanity and extra storage above the toilet, as well as an oversized soaker tub, this bathroom is something to be truly proud of.
Your master suite is truly a retreat. The extra-large space features large windows, a walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom you will never want to leave. The stand-up shower highlights lovely glass tile, and your two-person jet tub is the perfect place to relax.
Outside, you have a driveway on either side of the house, so there is lots of space for your vehicles. One side has a carport to keep your car away from the elements, and the other side hosts a large shed for your lawnmower, spare tires, and other toys! The enormous back yard is fenced on two sides, and features a gorgeous all-cedar deck with a gazebo. The shed also has a door to the back yard, and has covered space for your BBQ.
This home has been lovingly renovated by this family. They have put their hearts and souls into every detail, and it shows. One of the owners is a home builder, so you can be assured that everything he has done has been completed properly and safely. You are walking distance to the bustling downtown with shops and restaurants, schools, and the Carambeck Community Centre and Pool. With about 2,800 square feet, your family will never outgrow this space, and the proximity to the Mississippi River, the beach, will make this feel like home for years and years to come.
