All the little details in this three-bedroom detached home add up to one delightful package. This is a home that’s easy to warm up to. Inside, large principal rooms, and architectural details create an impactful impression you won’t soon forget.

With large wooden beams, carefully selected modern light fixtures, and plentiful windows, 79 Balfour makes you feel like you’re finally home.

The roomy eat-in kitchen faces the south rear garden through large windows and has tons of cupboard space – perfect for those who look forward to trying a new recipe (or plating delicious takeout from one of the countless restaurants nearby). The stainless steel stove, dishwasher and fridge were new in 2019. There’s a centre island for prep or just hanging around, enjoying a cup of tea or a glass of wine. And underfoot, the warmth of those hardwood floors feels as comforting as a book you’ve read countless times. 

Upstairs, there are three full family-size bedrooms, which is a rare find. The primary bedroom is actually large enough for a king-sized bed with a walk-in closet (seriously!). And the cheery bathroom was renovated in 2018. 

Downstairs, there’s a partially finished basement with a family room that can double as a private space to work from home during the day. There is a new electrical panel (2019), a new washer and dryer (2019) and the basement heater was new in 2016.

There is potential to finish the rest of the basement to add even more living space – your dream family room, workout space, or a home office for remote work. Plus, there’s a separate entrance so you could easily see clients at home, or create an in-law suite, nanny suite, or even an income suite.  

Outside there is a huge, fully fenced backyard, shaded by mature trees – one of the perks of a 120 ft lot.  Your private oasis has plenty of room for entertaining a crowd (someday), for kids to play and to cultivate your green thumb. The fence and deck were recently done (2019 and 2017), and a new landscaping and retaining wall were completed in 2017. Walk past the new shed (installed 2020), and through the gate to two parking spaces in the lane.

  4. The three full family-sized bedrooms – A king-size bed with a walk-in closet in the primary bedroom? Now that’s dreamy.
