Exterior / Garage
Beyond the half (privacy) glazed front door, step into this lovingly renovated and updated bungalow. In the entrance, you will find tile flooring. In the passageway ahead, you will find a coat closet with space saving sliding closet doors.
To your left is the large but cozy living room. Note the feature wood burning fireplace with the floor-to-ceiling rock surround and the inset wooden mantel, both of which were added by the current owners, as was the quality laminate flooring (installed 2015) and the double aspect vinyl windows (installed 2014) that bring lots of extra light into the area.
The laminate flooring continues through to the spacious dining area, which has a ceiling fan/light fixture above (installed 2015) and an opening through to the kitchen/diner.
The kitchen floor is tiled (installed in 2014, replacing the linoleum inherited by the current owners when they bought the home) and the kitchen has been updated (in 2015) with extra cabinetry, a new laminate counter-top and a new double sink. The appliances have all been replaced by the current owners. A vinyl window overlooks your rear yard.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a breakfast area where the family can gather. The kitchen also benefits from a pantry cupboard.
Along a tiled passage from the kitchen and breakfast area, you will find the main floor bedrooms.
On the right, the spacious master bedroom has new (in 2017) laminate flooring, a new (in 2014) vinyl window, a new (2015) ceiling fan/light fixture and a double closet. The master bedroom also comes with its own updated 2 piece en-suite.
Opposite the master bedroom you will find two well proportioned and equal-sized main floor bedrooms, both with new (2017) laminate flooring, new (2014) vinyl windows and both benefiting from ceiling fan/light fixtures.
Completing the main floor is the 4-piece family bathroom, which has tiled flooring and an updated vanity unit and toilet.
From the main level, take the staircase down to the part finished, full basement. Along the way, you will pass the door out to your private rear yard.
On your right as you reach the basement level, is a door to a very large room that is currently used as an exercise space but would work very well as an informal basement bedroom. There is a small window out to the rear of the home, a closet with solid shelves and some carpeting.
Beyond this room is a further finished room, with carpeted flooring, that would make an excellent hobby room or storage room.
The remainder of the basement is open for your finishing ideas. In the space currently occupied by the informal workshop area, you could make a family/media room, to the side of which would be the ideal spot for a basement bathroom. The rest of the basement space would serve very well as a utility/storage room.
You will find the laundry pair here, as well as the Lennox High efficient furnace that was installed in October 2012 and the hot water tank that was installed as recently as February 2017.
This beautiful bungalow, in super popular Tower Hill, has been significantly updated by the current owners, including new (in 2015) vinyl siding, new shingles (2015) and many new vinyl windows on the main floor (2014).
The West facing front yard is an absolute delight, demonstrating all the benefits of living in a mature area. The sweeping concrete walkway leads to a beautiful and totally private front deck, (which is another improvement made by the current owners, in 2015), where you can sit out and watch the world go by. To either side of the walkway, the front yard is beautifully landscaped with lawn areas, rock edged mulched borders with flowering shrubs and a variety of mature trees.
There's also plenty of space to park at least two vehicles or even your RV/Trailer and another vehicle.
The rear yard is fully fenced and very private. The rear fence was replaced in 2017 (at which time, it was moved East and onto the property line, thereby enlarging the yard) and has a gate out to the walking path system and green space immediately behind the home.
The rear yard benefits from plenty of lawn area for the kids to play, a hot tub (new in 2016, at a cost of nearly $14,000), a large vinyl clad shed and both a maturing tree and a Lilac.
It is peaceful and quiet, especially with there being no home behind, an ideal spot to sit out and relax.
The yards also benefit from a 3 zone (front yard, back yard and side yard) in-ground irrigation system.
