210 Amber Trail - Amber Trails

Builder: Randall Homes
Selling Price: $380,857 plus GST and Land
Type: 2-Storey

The first thing you notice when you walk through the front door is the feeling of space. The bright entrance is spacious and airy. I feel like there is a lot of house to see as there are only a few steps down to the basement and a few steps up to the main level. Great thought has been put into this area, making me feel that this is just a taste of what is to come as I walk through this house. There is a huge walk-in closet here. This is great if, like me, you have many coats and scarves and stuff. You can hide all those boots, shoes and outerwear away from the beauty of the house.

Up to the main level, there is a lovely lounge/dining room. I forgot to mention that this house faces the lake so there is a wonderful view from the windows at the front of this home. You almost feel that you are at a lakeside property with the view of the lake to the front and the biggest backyard you can wish for (the lot is 240 feet deep).

The white cabinetry in the kitchen adds extra brightness with a lovely eat-in area perfect for those busy mornings when everyone is trying to get ready at the same time. The family room just off the open concept kitchen means that this area is definitely the heart of the home. There is even a built in waist-height shelf for the telephone and all those yellow and white pages that we accumulate without knowing where to put them still in their cellophane wrapping. There are two further bedrooms on this level which can be used as an office or a bedroom.

Upstairs is a continuation of the high standards and quality finishes that are apparent throughout this home. The master suite is spacious with a generously proportioned ensuite and walk-in closet. The bedroom has massive windows that add to the feeling of space and luxury and looks out onto the lake to the front.

Back down the stairs to the entrance hall. There are only 6 steps down to the basement. There is no such feeling of going down to the dungeon in this home! The recreation room is huge and the big windows down here add to the feeling that this is just another level of the home that must be utilised and enjoyed. The laundry room is perfectly equipped with a thoughtful linen closet to hide the additional towels and sheets that we all accumulate. There is also another bedroom down here and a full bath. A perfect place to hide my husband when he misbehaves.

  1. Wow that sounds fantastic! I wish I had a place to put my husband when he misbehaves...

  2. Hmmm, I like the idea of big windows in the basement, not so dungeon-like.......
