The main level features large windows throughout; spacious principal rooms and bedrooms; a sun room; and two beautiful washrooms - as well as engineered flooring in a cozy den off the entrance foyer, throughout the open concept living and dining rooms, as well as the hallway.
Beautifully combined and offering an intimate atmosphere for entertaining, the living and dining rooms are brighten with natural light through a west-facing bay window, while an elegant chandelier brings ambient lighting to the dining area. The kitchen is quite bright, enjoys an east-facing exposure, and is an efficiently designed work area with great storage. The modern cabinetry has the additional storage space of a wall-to-wall pantry, and its soft white colour is complemented with the neutral earth tones of the stone counter tops, the stone-tiled back splashes, a double under mount sink, and the tiled floor. Stainless steel appliances include a built-in compact dishwasher, over-the-range microwave, oven with smooth cooktop, and a fridge with bottom mount freezer - while in the breakfast area is a servery co-ordinating with the kitchen cabinetry and its finishes.
