10 Blue Sun Drive – A lovely 3 bedroom family home.

The first thing I noticed about this home was the cute front porch. Although not large, it would still allow you to sit outside and chat to your neighbours as they walked by. On the other side of the bay window that looks out over the porch, you’ll find the formal dining room. It is a good size and has an alcove to fit your sideboard or china cabinet.

The great room at the back of the house impresses. Two storeys high, with a lovely fireplace, it still had a wonderful “warm and cozy” feeling to it. Perhaps it was the rich mixture of dark stained woods mixed with light coloured walls… perhaps it was the two levels of windows letting lots of light into the area… whichever… I loved being in this room.

Beside the great room is the kitchen. Decorated with white cupboards and dark countertops, it made use of stainless steel appliances. Its island houses the double sink with an extended top to allow use as bar for the great room. There was also an informal eating area to the back of the kitchen which opened out to a partly covered deck.

One thing I really liked about the main floor of this home was the organization of the back hallway leading from the generously sized garage. Into this corner of the house, the builders have nicely “tucked in” the main floor powder room, the front and garage entry coat closets (which end up being side by side creating less confusion for the home owners when looking for the right outerwear), a main floor laundry room (which smartly includes a sink between the washer and dryer), and an entry to the pantry (which “walks-through” to the kitchen).

Upstairs, I was immediately taken by the lovely circular balcony which overlooks the great room. Additionally, the builders have designed a loft with a built in double desk. This area could be cheerfully used as your computing area, as your sitting area, or in my case as that art area I always look for!

The master bedroom was large and in this version of the house plan, the builders outfitted it with the deluxe bathroom ensuite. Two areas could be separated by two sliding doors. In the back was the toilet and walk in shower, complete with bench. In the front, closest to the bedroom was the jet tub and sink.

The two other bedrooms were a good size and shared the second bathroom. I liked the large upstairs linen closet.

The basement level of this home was not finished.

I really liked this home. It gave me a “when can I move in” type of feeling!
