Address: 931 Luxton Drive
Neighbourhood: Oakridge Acres
Agent: Austin D. Titus and Sherry Simon, Century 21 First Canadian Corp., Brokerage
A classic family bungalow the established Oakridge Acres neighbourhood with a tasteful, updated and modernized interior.
After a long life as a traditional home in the Oakridge neighbourhood, the classic-looking bungalow was turned on its head in recent years and now features a modern interior that fuses the single-family home with the vibe of a downtown condo. The interior was completely renovated five years ago, and now features an open-concept floorplan with hardwood floors and unique design flavours — like the clever use of wood cabinetry and accents in an otherwise monochromatic kitchen — that bring the various spaces of this three-bedroom bungalow to life.
The living room features a unique marble fireplace and a large front window, anchoring an inviting sitting area or living room. This leads seamlessly into an updated kitchen, with new cabinets, stainless steel appliances and built-in storage, entering around a breakfast bar unit with a built-in stove. The spacious master bedroom comes with its own set of sliding doors out to the backyard, where a covered seating area looks out over a heated pool surrounded by coloured flagstone. It also features a walk-in closet. The main level also features two more bedrooms (one of which has been used as a home office).
For the movie-heads and TV lovers out there, the real draw might be the basement, which has been converted into a home theatre room, complete with light absorbing paint, soundproofing insulation and wiring for a 13-speaker audio system. There’s also another bedroom in the basement, a half-bathroom and a washer and dryer unit included.
