That home where the neighbourhood gathers? Make it yours.
Located in quaint Waterdown, just 60 minutes drive from Downtown Toronto, this updated 3+1 bedroom, 4 bath home has plenty of room for everyone.
Here, you’ll find the best of all worlds. Those with kids will appreciate the spacious bedrooms – large enough to see children from toddlerhood to the teenage years and beyond. The principal bedroom has a walk-in closet and an ensuite, so you can get ready for the day on your own time. Plus, all the bathrooms on the main and second floor have been redone.
The open concept kitchen and dining room with access to the beautiful backyard oasis, is perfect for entertaining. The heart of the home has fabulous finishes like granite counters, gas stove, herringbone tile backsplash, a wall of pantry cabinets, island with wine storage, built-in desk, recessed lighting and crown moulding. The gleaming hardwood floors were refinished in 2018, the same year that new laminate flooring was placed in the main floor laundry room and the basement.
The living room with functioning wood-burning fireplace, family room and downstairs rec room mean there is more than enough space to hang out, even with friends over. Though for most of the summer, you’ll find everyone outside. The backyard with mature gardens and heated, in-ground pool is like having your own private resort. The garden shed/pool house makes for the perfect change room to minimize traffic from the pool to the house. The patio has a gas BBQ hookup, and plenty of space to eat, lounge, and dine.
Downstairs, there is space to create a 4th bedroom along with a large recreation area. Media room, games room or multipurpose hangout zone, what you do here is up to you. And, there is additional storage in the utility room and a cold room!
