Memories are waiting to be made in this inviting, detached bungalow. Located on a quiet street in the Bathurst Manor neighbourhood, this spacious home is made for your growing family.
A beautifully manicured, private front yard with a unistone double driveway welcomes you to 15 Blue Forest Drive. Here you have plenty of space for visitors to park their cars and an abundance of greenspace to create the garden of your dreams.
Tuck away your outerwear in the large grand foyer before heading into the open concept main floor. Beautiful hardwood flooring and natural sunlight flows throughout the large living and dining space that will host all of your extended family dinners with plenty of elbow room.
Gather around the kitchen island with your trusty sous chefs as you prepare dinner. The roomy eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and space to comfortably host the whole family. This also means more room for the kids to help with dish duty after the meal is done. No more excuses!
There’s a space for everyone to claim as their own. The main floor has a large primary bedroom with a stunning ensuite and two well-sized bedrooms or den. Each has a special bonus feature; the second bedroom has a substantially large closet, the third bedroom has a walkout to the backyard.
Need more room to accommodate an extended family? The basement is split, one side offers a completely separate entrance apartment with a full kitchen, large bedroom with a massive living room or second bedroom, while the other side continues from the upper level with a large family rec room with a bar nook and additional large bedroom or office . The basement apartment is the perfect spot to rent for additional income potential or use as a nanny or caregiver suite.
Spend your summers outdoors in the gigantic backyard. Listen to faint chants of the children running around with their friends while the bbq sizzles away on the back deck. Life is good.
