Main House

This stunning home built in 2000 boosts a very spacious open concept main floor with two dining areas, two living areas as well as the kitchen, a pantry, and a powder room. Great for entertaining. There is laminate flooring throughout the main floor. Relax by the natural gas fireplace in the main living room with high vaulted ceilings. The kitchen island builds the centre of the kitchen. The pantry with pocket door offers a second stove which is very useful for any occasion. Two sets of french doors lead to the wrap-around deck with amazing views of Lake Kathlyn and the mountains. The family room could easily be turned into another bedroom or office.

Walk upstairs and be greeted by vaulted ceilings and a small room that is currently used as an office. There are two very spacious bedrooms (one facing east and the other facing west). Walk-in closet with pocket door. A beautiful newly renovated (2017) 5-piece bathroom completes the upstairs. A huge walk-in shower, free-standing tub, toilet, and double vanity along with in-floor heat create a wellness oasis in your own home.

The basement houses a large recreation room. Access to the laundry room is through the rec room. The laundry room has stacked high-load washer and dryer, a shower, toilet, and laundry sink as well as the water softener. The furnace/storage room separates the extra two bedrooms and a 3-piece bathroom from the rest of the main house. Those two bedrooms and the bathroom have their own outside entrance and could be ideal for older children or other family members who want their own space or the could be used for a home-based business or rented out as a guest suite (current use).

The main house is heated by a new (2019) natural gas furnace with forced air. New hot water tank (2019) as well. Concrete foundation.
