$779,900 for a classic family-friendly backsplit in Trafalgar Heights
Address: 157 Bournemouth Drive
Neighbourhood: Trafalgar Heights
Agent: Rick Buncick, Century 21 First Canadian Corp. Brokerage
A classic four-bedroom, split-level family home in the city’s southeast end.
Maybe it’s not the most in-vogue style of house these days, but there’s definitely something to be said for the family backsplit ― having four floors for the price of two can make a small footprint seem more spacious than it looks, and you get the chance to cultivate different design vibes than in, say, an open-concept, two-floor home. Plus, it’s never hard for someone to find a space to themselves.
This backsplit maintains that classic approach and has been updated and refreshed over the past few years, bringing a modern style to the place. The main level features a kitchen-living-dining room combination with rich hardwood floor and plenty of natural light. The kitchen itself, centred around a large island, features a gas range, custom tile backsplash and a big farmhouse sink. Upstairs, the master bedroom (one of two on the top floor) looks out onto the forest behind the house and connects with a newly renovated five-piece washroom.
Heading down from the main floor, the first lower level features a cozy den, with a gas fireplace situated in the corner of the room, as well as a third bedroom and a four-piece washroom. Head down one more level and you’ll find the fourth bedroom, as well as space for a home office, tons of storage space and a cold cellar room. Outside, there’s a large storage shed with a workshop, a stone patio and greenspace leading right out into the forest — a welcome proximity to nature with plenty of places to walk and explore.
