As you walk up to the front of the house, you are greeted by 3 floors of windows. You already know that this house is going to be bright allowing natural daylight to flood every part of this home.

If you enter this house from the garage there is a generous sized mud room, perfect for those winter boots and multiple layers that form part of our lives for several months of the year. This is where they have placed the laundry as well. Though this is not somewhere I would like my laundry to go, I am assured that this could be relocated to the basement if you would prefer. But then again, who am I to argue? I come from London England where are houses are very small and the laundry is in the kitchen!

As you walk up the stairs to the main living area all you see are fantastic windows – everywhere. The back of the house has floor to ceiling windows in the great room overlooking the huge backyard. The other side of the room is the dining area with even more windows to the front of the house.

The kitchen is huge, and yes with great windows facing the garden. There is lots of room to walk around in the kitchen which would be a chef’s paradise. There is even room for a breakfast table that would be near the back doors to the yard. The extra height ceilings in the great room and dining room combined with the windows make this main floor seem enormous.

I am not sure if you appreciate a Dr Who reference but this is a Tardis. That is the best way that I can describe this house. It is a Tardis. You really do not appreciate how much house you get until you are inside. Do not be fooled by the outside, there is so much more to see. I haven’t even finished on the main floor. There is also a cozy study as well as a half bath.

Up to the next level, is the master suite. It is a large comfortable room with windows on two walls and a walk in closet. The lovely ensuite bathroom even caters for my need to keep the toilet separate with a dividing wall in the bathroom to separate it from the rest of the area. There is a jet tub, a large walk in shower unit and a double vanity.

Outside the master bedroom on the landing leading to the top level are two closets. These are very handy for storage or a fantastic place to hide fashion purchases from your husband. Up on the top level are two further bedrooms and a full bathroom.

The finished basement has a wonderful rec room and an additional bedroom. On speaking to the sales agent, I was not surprised to hear that this house has generated a lot of interest from those who have viewed it. You really do get a lot of house for your money.
