Builder: Kensington Homes
Selling Price: $279,900 Plus GST and Land
Type: Bi-Level

This 1544 sq. ft. storey and separate upper level master suite is one version of Kensington Homes’ Capetown design. Definitely, no shortage of bedrooms having two on the main level, the master and possibly two more in the lower level.

A two-car attached garage is a feature of this home. When coming in after parking your vehicle, you enter at a door which is side by side with the main entry way. There is a closet right beside both doors.

Two stairs up and two more stairs up and you are in the kitchen – the vaulted kitchen – complete with a five element stove top, a large walk-in pantry with automatic lighting. A very pleasing feature is the double level island which offers a tremendous amount of storage, electrical outlets and two stools on the outward edge where you can chow down.

Opposite the kitchen area, there is an opening leading into a hallway where you will find the two main floor bedrooms with a full three-piece bath in between them and also a linen closet.

When you walk further back from the kitchen, you will find the continuation of the vaulted ceiling from the kitchen into the formal dining room and the Great Room. Quite a majestic effect to have the ‘living’ area rise above the rest of the space. The dining room has a full size table and chairs, large windows and the doorway to the backyard. It faces toward the living room which has even larger windows and is made even more dramatic by them and the furnishings including a huge flat screen television.

Eight stairs up from the kitchen area, you enter the master suite. There is a small landing at the top of those stairs from which you can look down and observe the front entry way. The bedroom is very large with its bay window facing to the front street and made even more special by the padded window box seats and wide window ledge. A great place to sit and read or just look over what’s happening outside. The master also includes a walk-in closet with a pocket door and its own bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The lower level is carpeted and includes a large recreation room space, two rooms which could become bedrooms #4 and #5. In between them is a full three piece bath. Some folks might choose to make one of those rooms an office or hobby room. The utility room has all the wiring and plumbing standing by to hook up a washer and dryer. There even enough room for a pool table besides all the other rooms mentioned.

This is definitely a house where a young family would have room to grow. It’s great that there are nearby schools for those school age children.

  1. My favourite feature of this home is the basement. There is a games area, a walk up bar, 5.1 surround sound and a perfect wall for a huge TV. That's all I need in life!
