Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
A charming, comfortable and family friendly home in Westmount.
With all of the hallmarks you expect in a detached family home, plus a pleasant farmhouse-inspired design, this is an appealing listing for anyone looking to settle in to a long-term home ― be it a growing family upgrading from their starter home or a downsizing family looking for something a little more fitting.
This four-bed, two-bath split-side in the southwest end of the city is in many ways a traditional home, from the layout to the overall design. Step in through the front door and the family room is on your right; straight ahead is a combination kitchen-dining room, with sliding glass doors leading out onto the gorgeous landscaped stone patio and lush green backyard. Head to the upper level and you’ll find three standard bedrooms and a newly updated three-piece bathroom, with plenty of natural light in each.
The main level of the home features rich hardwood flooring and crown moulding throughout. The living room, at the front of the home, features a large front window as well as a gas fireplace. The recently updated kitchen centres around a bar-top island and features all-white cabinetry, a tile backsplash and new white appliances, and is connected with the dining area. Outside on the patio there’s a fully fenced backyard, a mature perennial garden (complete with wired garden lighting) and a large shed, as well as plenty of green space.
The lower level adds yet more living space to this home, with a second gas fireplace, the fourth bedroom, a warm and cozy den as well as a large rec room with built-in shelving. It also has a second half-bathroom. The small unfinished portion of the bedroom contains the laundry facilities, as well as the mechanical elements.
And all of it in a location that is as family friendly as the home itself. Near the corner of Southdale and Wellington, you’re not far from major shopping areas (and highways 401 and 402), as well as many of the amenities offered in a historically residential area, including a local YMCA, plenty of playgrounds, hockey arenas, soccer fields and more.
Big Selling Point
Right in the middle of both the price and extravagance spectrum, this split-level offers a fantastic opportunity for one’s forever home, whatever kind of property you’re coming from.
