A welcoming front foyer with marble tiles is warmed by textured crosshatch walls and a nook for displaying a mirror or artwork. Double sliding closet doors provide storage for coats and shoes.

Window bench seating provides a comfortable spot to people-watch while sipping tea, or a spot for kids to tuck into an after-school snack with friends. Close discreet window shutters for added privacy. Above a double sink, grow kitchen herbs or display your favourite vase in a sunny windowsill. Host formal family dinners in a stunning open dining and living space where large windows invite the outside in — delight in views of lilac trees and verdant shrubs. Read a book by a marble fireplace, watching the snow falling on luscious green pines in winter months. French doors lead to a serene private backyard which boasts an apple tree and an impeccably landscaped perennial garden. Unwind on a lounger while listening to birdsong and the sound of a fountain in the distance.

A convenient three-piece bathroom with a walk-in shower makes the space an ideal dedicated home office or in-law suite. The lower level is fully finished with laminate flooring and neutral tones. Store boots, coats and outdoor equipment in a mudroom with direct access to a garage. Single car garage with space for two guests in the driveway eases guest list woes. A den/office with a three-piece bath could be an ideal guest suite or home gym.
