Builder: Randall Homes
Selling Price: $304,667 Plus GST and Land
Type: 2-Storey

Randall Homes built this two-storey, 1896 sq. ft. house named “Austin B”. It has a very symmetrical front ‘face’ including a two-car attached garage and a front porch by the main entry way.

When entering the home through the garage, you will find yourself in a nicely appointed laundry room (washer/dryer); including a stainless steel sink and a closet for outdoor clothes and footwear. There is a two piece powder room next door which is handy for the family members coming home and for guests who are visiting in the main floor ‘living’ rooms.

The front foyer is roomy and has a large closet for coats and outerwear. To the side of the foyer is what was set up to be the formal dining room. It is very elegant and spacious with room for a large table and chairs. On the plan picture, this space is labeled as a flex room. However, with windows facing the front street and ample room for furniture; it is easy to see why it was decorated as a formal eating area.

Further down the centre hallway, you will discover a really well laid out kitchen; complete with stainless steel appliances, large pantry (closet), spacious island (in this show home) complete with cupboards underneath and electrical outlets. There is ample space to have an eating area in the kitchen/back door area – a table and 4 chairs. The door leads out to the backyard and its fresh sod.

There is a half-wall divider between the kitchen/eating area and the Great Room. It has shelving on the living room side and plain wood facing the kitchen. There are large windows letting light stream into the living area in the daytime. There are several options from which you can select where and what type of fireplace you would like. It definitely adds a cozy feeling to the room having one.

The upstairs level is divided in half; the master suite taking one (vertical side) of the floor plan and three further bedrooms and a full piece bathroom on the other half. The master bedroom is incredibly roomy and the furniture chosen to display in it very clearly illustrates how grand a space it is. The suite includes a full three piece bathroom and a very generous walk-in closet.

At the top of the stairs to the second floor, there is another full bathroom for the other 3 bedrooms. You do have the option if you choose to build this particular home to make the bedroom closest to the front of the house into an open landing above the foyer with a half wall.

Super nice home for a family; especially since there are several schools in the Canterbury Park area.

  1. The first thing that struck me was how attractive the yard was. There was obviously attention to detail in planning a low maintenance front yard. It was a rainy day when I visited and I was impressed with the slope and drainage to the street.
