All the requirements for comfortable family living are encompassed in this compact three-bedroom design. The basement-entry plan offers low building costs and potential expansion for future requirements. The large sun deck above the double garage is a definite highlight of this home. This indoor-outdoor space is conveniently located off the main living areas and will undoubtedly prove to be a bonus to be enjoyed by all the family. The elegant double doors of the ~entry open to the foyer, which is also accessed from the double garage. A den off the foyer is ideally placed for use as a home office, if desired, or could be a computer room or a library. The spacious unfinished basement area has plenty of room to become a large recreation area or could be divided into two separate rooms. Upstairs, the living room and dining room are combined in one long room with a gas fireplace and multi-paned sliding glass doors. Side windows offer added views and openness to the sun deck - the perfect place to entertain guests before or after dinner, or simply to relax with a good book on quiet summer evenings. The kitchen is compact and functional, with space for a small dinette within the bayed window. The sliding doors here open to a second sun deck - an invitation to step outside with a coffee, or enjoy a barbecue with family or friends. The master suite includes a large walk-in closet and three-piece en suite. Two secondary bedrooms, one with a boxed window seat, share a full bathroom. A broom cupboard provides additional storage, but an alternative option would be to turn this space into a feature display case. The appealing exterior is unmistakably traditional in design, with stone or optional brick accents. The small porch gives the home a warming welcome and is large enough for an old-style swing or a garden table set. The house is 34 feet, 9 inches wide and 45 feet, 2 inches deep and is well suited to a narrow lot. It encompasses 1,144 square feet of living space and a basement.
