266 Tartan Drive: $659,000 for an updated and spacious four-level backsplit in Trafalgar Heights
Address: 266 Tartan Drive
Neighbourhood: Trafalgar Heights
Agent: Re/Max Hallmark A Team
A spacious three-bedroom, two-bathroom backsplit with top-to-bottom updates.
From the curb you might be thinking ‘bungalow’ — but you’d be wrong, as the entrance to this four-bed backsplit in the east end quickly spreads out across four levels, with multiple living spaces that make this place seem larger than it appears.
One of the first things you’ll notice as you step in is the rich, warm hardwood flooring that runs through much of the house, starting with the main level. As you enter, there’s a living area overlooking the front porch. Follow the main hallway and you’ll find the home’s inviting kitchen area. Anchored by a kitchen island, the space features a double sink, white tile backsplash, quartz countertops and plenty of cabinet space. Just off the kitchen is the dining room, with connections for a hanging lighting feature from the vaulted ceilings.
The lower level of the backsplit includes a spacious family room, featuring an electric fireplace and brick mantle, a built-in storage ledge around the perimeter and warm, neutral carpeting. Just off the living room is the home’s most unique feature: a custom oak bar, perfect for hosting friends, family parties or having a little quiet space to yourself at the end of the day (bartender not included, unfortunately.)
Upstairs, the hardwood floors return across the three upstairs bedrooms, each of which includes ample closet space and natural light. The primary bedroom overlooks the backyard and connects to the upstairs bathroom, a four-piece bathroom with stone tile flooring, an upgraded vanity and tiled shower/tub combo.
Downstairs, on the lowest level, there’s a finished basement room that can be used for just about anything you’d like ― home gym, kid’s room, bedroom or a second living room. There’s also a small unfinished portion containing the washer and dryer.
This home also features a backyard that wraps around two sides of the house. The home exits onto a stone patio area with plenty of design options, whether you want to turn it into an outdoor living room, outdoor kitchen area or both. The concrete slab also gives way to a lot of grassy space, while a backyard storage shed gives you lots of storage space for your backyard stuff (in addition to the attached single-car garage).
Big Selling Point
There’s a little bit of everything here: upgraded kitchen, cozy bedrooms, a custom bar, generous backyard, large living spaces and custom appointments — all in a home that delivers outstanding value is definitely bigger than it first appears.
