A classic four-bed, two-bath split level in North London.
The first thing you might notice about this four-bed, two-bath split level family home in the sought-after Northridge neighbourhood is all the wood. It’s there on the walls when you walk in, the bright hardwood flooring throughout much of the house, the kitchen cabinetry, and it’s there in the warm, studio-like wood ceiling on the lower of the levels — giving the property an upscale feel without the cold grey stylings of the ultra-modern look.
It’s not just a stylish place, but a functional one too — the split-level family house is a residential classic for a reason. The home’s front room overlooks a big front yard, with a large window filling the living room with natural light and an open, airy feel. The living room feeds into the dining room, attached to a spacious kitchen that includes a gas stove, shaker-style cabinetry, an incredible amount of storage space, bar-style seating and a unique reclaimed wood-style backsplash behind laminate countertops.
The original hardwood flooring continues on the upper level, containing three sizeable bedrooms, each of which continues unique design features like a built-in desk, shiplap window dressing or a recessed ledge area, expanding the range of layout and design possibilities whether you plan to use it as a bedroom or as an office or studio space. The upper level also contains a shared four-piece bathroom.
The first lower level has its own separate entrance and serves as its own defined space within the home. This level has the largest of the home’s four bedrooms, a second living area and a small two-piece bathroom. From a design perspective, the unique wooden ceiling, darkened hardwood flooring and bold paint choices set this level apart from the rest of the house, offering some variety without physically severing the two units. As it comes with its own entrance, it might be perfect for multi-generational households who want to offer a bit of independence to an older family member, for instance. The home also contains an unfinished basement that offers lots of potential for renovation.
The private backyard will also be appealing to families, offering plenty of space for both eating and relaxing (on the stone patio) or running around (in the adjacent yard). The backyard includes a small tool shed, several small trees as well as a doorway leading to a detached garage.
Big Selling Point
With several distinct living spaces, plenty of bedrooms and the potential for additional finishing in the basement, this home packs plenty of functionality onto sturdy bones. Plus, the location — in a quiet family suburb — makes this a perfect option for medium-sized families.
