Surrounded by Greenbelt lands, this beautiful home in family-oriented Blackburn Hamlet has great curb appeal, plenty of room for the growing family – and your own personal backyard oasis! From brick edged gardens filled with evergreen and seasonal florals running along the front of the house that match the interlock walkway, the professionally maintained lawn and hedges, to the bright red front door this home stands out and welcomes you before you even step inside.
Built in the early 1970’s, this 2-storey, 4 bedroom home has most recently seen updates to the electrical system in 2018 and 2020, chimney and fireplace repairs in 2018, new kitchen countertops in 2019 and backsplash and updated cabinets in 2020, a new deck, pool maintenance, and renovations to both the main and ensuite bathrooms. It is clear from the first glance this this home has been well-loved and cared for over the years.
Stepping through the front door leads your into a tiled entry with a beautiful two-toned staircase leading to the second floor, a home office to the left, and formal dining room to the right while the kitchen is visible straight ahead. Aside from the entryway this level has beautiful hardwood flooring throughout.
This main level can be used in many different ways – the room that is currently set up as a home office leads through into the kitchen and would be perfect as a formal dining room with ease of entertaining; while the room with a beautiful bay window that is currently set up as a formal dining room could easily transition into a formal living room, or even a kids play room with plenty of sunlight throughout the day.
Into the kitchen finds beautiful new quartz countertops, and plenty of modern white cabinets to store away all of your dishes, small appliances, knick-nacks and pantry goods. Stainless steel appliances blend seamlessly with the modern decor, and the centre island with breakfast bar is a great place to set the kids up for homework, or quick breakfasts and snacks. A built-in workstation alongside the picture window that overlooks the backyard serves multiple uses as a coffee station, and place to keep an eye on your little one’s virtual schooling while you try to get your own work done at the breakfast bar, or prepare lunch.
The kitchen leads through to the cozy living room with a wood burning fireplace and a set of French doors leading out to the backyard. This room is the perfect retreat from the backyard on those summer evenings when the bugs start up, or the air gets chilly.
Upstairs your attention will be drawn to the spacious primary bedroom with a sliding barn door to separate the beautifully updated ensuite bath featuring a patterned tile floor, modern vanity and claw foot tub. Harwood flooring extends through all four roomy bedrooms on this level. The main bathroom has been renovated to include a beautifully tiled seamless glass shower, built in storage shelves and modern touches.
The fully finished basement offers an additional rec room and family room, plenty of storage, and laundry.
Now about that Backyard Oasis: an inground saltwater pool with diving board, interlock patio, beautiful screened gazebo that sits off of the deck and a fully hedged yard. You’re sure to enjoy many summer days relaxing in this space; and one day entertaining friends and family for long weekend get togethers.
