Peaceful outdoor views converge with the contemporary flow and bright, sunlit spaces of bungalow living in a mid-century hidden gem. The privacy of hedges and a wrought iron gate leave lots to the imagination; through it, a flagstone path winds toward the front door. A prominent central chimney sets an appealing tone, and the home's stone masonry stretches the front length – an indication that unassuming beginnings may culminate in an abundance of living space. »cont'd

The main living area is ideal for entertaining – the sun-drenched living room's gas fireplace and stone surround beckons. Guests and family goings-on flow from living room to dining room and beyond with a spacious, airy vibe. In the kitchen, the resident chef remains a part of the action with granite peninsula denoting the kitchen's auspicious beginning.
