214 Amber Trail - Amber Trails

Builder: Sterling Homes
Selling Price: $328,000 plus GST and Land
Type: 2-Storey

This home is right across the street from the lake and is perfectly located to nearby schools and shopping a Northgate and Garden City. The front door opens to a foyer with the stairway in the centre of the home. If you enter from the garage, which tends to be the way I would come in having parked my car, you enter the mudroom which is well-equipped with shelves and a lot of rail space for the bulky coats that we need in Winnipeg.

The kitchen is laid out perfectly with the perfect triangle between the sink, stove and refrigerator. I am not in the habit of slamming kitchen drawers shut, but I really do appreciate the soft-close drawers in this kitchen. It is little details like that and the granite counters that add that extra shine to this home.

There is a cozy family room from the kitchen area. If I lived in this home it would mean that my husband would never be too far away to ask to open the pickle jar or chop the onions. The back of this house overlooks a huge back yard. It isn’t landscaped, but it conjures up a vision of a large deck, with still loads of space for a lawn, bocce court and even a play area if you have children without any compromise.

Upstairs is also beautifully presented. There is a loft area to the front of the second floor with lovely windows that look out onto the lake. This would be a perfect office space. Even though it was an overcast day, it was still bright and airy. The two bedrooms are adequate in size with the main bathroom. The master suite is yet another treat in this home. There is an inviting deep and luxurious soaker tub and a walk in shower depending on your mood and time available to enjoy this ensuite.

This home has been carefully designed perfectly balancing affordable luxury with practicality. Terry, the sales consultant, endorses my observations. He explains that the design comes from utilising the best parts of a Sterling Home with the most popular design requests from other Qualico customers. The result is the best of all features that makes this home very special.
