An idyllic three-bed, three-bath single-family detached in Stoney Creek.
With detailing and features reminiscent of a magazine-feature abode, this single-family home in Sunningdale is a lovely pick for families looking for a suburban home without compromise on style or function.
From the curbside, much of this place looks fairly suburban standard: a big two-car garage, bedroom windows overlooking from the upper floor and a fenced backyard. Inside, too, there might not be many surprises in terms of layout — but there’s plenty of beautiful details and smart design choices that will make this place a joy to live in. The home opens into a spacious landing, and full hardwood flooring leads you to a renovated kitchen and spaces punctuated with bright natural light, a vaulted ceiling design and custom millwork.
Just off the dining room is the home’s living room, centred around an electric fireplace, stone mantle and wall-length shelving. And with a large rear window overlooking the backyard, the space is a bright, airy zone for the family.
Through to the kitchen and you reach the focus point of the home, featuring stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, a built-in microwave, wine fridge and large kitchen island. It’s been finished with a tile backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, and a large double-wide sink. The island will surely be a hub of family activity, with three seats and plenty of space for one’s stuff. Also included on the main floor are the laundry facilities as well as a half-bath.
Head upstairs (also featuring hardwood flooring) and you’ll meet the home’s first two bedrooms. The master, overlooking the front of the house, features vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet and more than enough space for some extra sitting furniture; it also connects with the upstairs bathroom, which comes with a beautiful soaking tub, walk-in shower and double vanity (as well as lots of storage). The second bedroom includes large wall-length storage units and has its own bathroom with a shower-tub combo.
The home includes a fully-finished basement including a second living room/den, a small home gym that could also function as a private office, a fourth bathroom and the home’s third bedroom — perfect for guests or visiting in-laws.
The backyard includes a raised deck with wooden fencing, concrete patio, a small storage shed and a good amount of greenspace to either keep and enjoy or plan out the outdoor oasis of your dreams.
