The main floor has an open plan layout, featuring a light-filled living room with ceiling soaring to 26 ft, high-quality fir-framed picture windows & a natural gas two-way fireplace with artisanal river rock surround. Adjoining family room is a comfortable retreat for reading a book or watching TV & french doors access the office.

The generous kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances & a large island for easy entertaining. The adjacent dining room has french doors opening onto a covered deck & patio area with magical woodland outlook beyond. There is a spacious laundry to complete the main floor.

Upstairs, the roomy primary suite boasts vaulted ceilings, a private forest-view deck and a newly renovated spa-like ensuite bathroom. Two additional bedrooms and a guest bathroom on the upper level make for an ideal family layout. A lower level is undeveloped and offers room to expand with a separate entrance.
