Selling Price: $606,419 plus GST and Land

While this home did not meet our own personal needs, it would make a fantastic home for young professionals seeking a large home that definitely sets itself apart from the standard cookie-cutter home.

Upon entry into the home, you are greeted by a lovely double sided ribbon fireplace which is shared with the family room. The beautiful 24 X 24 ceramic tile floor looks fabulous and is consistent throughout the entire home.

The living room and dining room have expansive 18 foot ceilings which make the space feel very large and the abundance of windows allows the natural light to flow through the entire main floor of this home.

The main floor laundry room is completely separate from the back entrance and is complete with sink, cabinets, and Caesar stone countertops.

The huge island kitchen is conducive to entertaining large crowds with ease. The glass tile backsplash is gorgeous as are the Caesar stone countertops.

The fully finished walk-out basement provides enough space for a large entertainment/media area, exercise room, extra bedroom, and full bath. The basement also has one of the neatest features I’ve ever seen – a storage shed with access from the basement utility room, complete with a single overhead garage door to the backyard. What a cool feature! It takes the proverbial “man-cave” to the next level!


This uniquely designed home would be best suited for the younger professional family with room to grow. The curb appeal of the home captures your attention immediately with the professionally finished landscaping leading to the formal entrance. When you enter the home, you will love the dining room light fixture immediately to your right, after being greeted by the see-through fireplace in the main entrance.

The pantry in the kitchen is awesome. It is the full length of the kitchen wall and offers plenty of kitchen storage.

The main floor plan is open with 2 family areas – with plenty of windows and glass. Both family areas are off the kitchen, and the main family area adds a red splash of color with the built in shelving unit.

The master bedroom on the 2nd level, is big and beautiful with an open view to the family room below. All the closet doors were self-closing, which was also pretty cool.

A really neat feature was the utility garage on the lower level of this walkout home. It was adjacent to the furnace room and had enough room to store all your lawn equipment and then some. It had a utility garage door accessible from the back yard. Very Cool!

Although this home did not suit our specific needs, if you are looking for ‘unique-ness’, this is the one for you!
