The Details

We’re going a little off the beaten path for this week’s house ― a three-plus-two bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow in Central Elgin.

At its core, this one is a very functional family home, with the space and tranquility of country living. The main level features a large living room area with hardwood flooring and a sliding door to the back deck. The kitchen features a boatload of cabinets, a full set of standard appliances and a peninsula countertop with bar seating. There’s also a number of built-in shelves, so one thing you won’t lack in this kitchen is space. The eat-in dining area features a brick hearth with an Elmira Stove Works wood-burning stove, plus a large sliding door leading out to the partially covered back patio.

There are three bedrooms on this main level, each of them comfortably sized, with closets, windows and carpeting. The home also features two versatile rooms on the lower level that could serve equally well as bedrooms, a home office or studio space, depending on the size of your family and needs. There is one of two bathrooms on the main floor, including a jacuzzi tub, plus a shower-tub combo. (The second bathroom, on the lower level, has a shower as well).

The lower level features a large den. In one corner there’s a fireplace; in another, there’s a wood-paneled bar with built-in lighting, shelving and sink. It’s a very cozy and warm space ― you’ll love it in the winter.

Outside, you have a ton of greenspace on this property. The extra large back deck includes both covered and open space ― perfect for a full patio set and outdoor living furniture to entertain. The backyard itself is huge, one of the perks of country living, and at the back of the property you have a very desirable feature ― a fully heated workshop. There’s also a small fire pit, plus landscaped gardens. At the front of the house, there’s also an enclosed heated porch.

There’s lots of other amenities under the hood here. You’ve got a generator to make sure you have an uninterrupted power supply and a water well on-site in addition to the municipal water supply. It’s also got central heating and cooling with a forced air gas furnace, as well as new energy-efficient windows. There’s lots of parking, both in the two-car garage and on the large driveway. And even though you’re in the country, you’re not all that far from St. Thomas or the conveniences of south London, giving you a nice middle-ground between the peacefulness of the country and the amenities of the city.
