Agent: Derek Moore, A Team London
A three-bedroom, three-bathroom backsplit in a mature family neighbourhood in Byron.
There will be a few people out there for whom this house offers the perfect equation: a classic midwestern split-level on the outside, rustic-modern on the inside. And the details don’t disappoint: this three-bedroom Byron home has a charming style and offers lots of potential for small- and medium-sized families.
The home enters into a large open-concept space, with the kitchen to the right when you enter, and the dining room to the left. The wood tones will be one of the first things you notice in the rich hardwood floorign and wood farm-style sliding door in the kitchen. The dining room faces out onto the front yard, with a large bay window with a small sitting area. The kitchen centres around a large, four-seater island ― perfect for hosting parties or using as an eat-in breakfast bar ― and features solid surface countertops, sleek white cabinetry and a subway tile backsplash. For appliances, the home includes a dishwasher, stove and refrigerator.
On the upper level, you’ll find the home’s three bedrooms ― all nicely sized with hardwood flooring and lots of closet space (in the primary suite, the closet has been converted to built-in storage). The upstairs bathroom features a beautifully tiled shower and a stylish vanity.
The first of the lower levels features a cozy den with a calling-card brick fireplace comprising one whole side of the room. There’s a wooden ledge running around the walls in this room, which offers a lot of decorative possibilities. This floor also includes a small bathroom, and access to the backyard via a sliding back door. It’s an ideal place for a family entertainment room.
The home continues on the lowest level, also fully finished. This room features carpeted flooring and shiplap walls, and includes the laundry facilities and a soaking tub.
The home comes with a large backyard with a storage shed in the back. In keeping with the family-friendly theme, there’s a lot of space to run around out here. The backyard also has a stone slab patio on two sides of the house, is fully fenced and has mature trees running along the fence to provide quiet and privacy. In the front, the home has recently had a brand-new concrete double-wide driveway installed, with lots of parking space.
It’s a great, highly sought-after neighbourhood in a mature part of town, with schools and shopping both nearby. This home will also be of interest to local skiers and snowboarders in the winter and mountain bikers in the summer ― it is, according to Google, only a nine minute walk from your front door to the Boler Mountain chairlift.
