Exterior / Garage
Beyond the half glazed front door, with its adjacent half glazed sidelight, you will find a bright and spacious entrance. The quality of this home is immediately obvious. Note the elegant arrangement of the tile on the floor and the immaculate Maple hardwood and soaring vaulted ceilings ahead, as well as the rounded corners and the wide baseboards. On your right is a closet with upgraded closet organizers.
To your left is a door leading into the carpeted den, which, given it has a closet, would work equally well as a second bedroom on the main floor. Note the double aspect windows that are dressed with up/down cellular shades.
Along the passage from the entrance is a door to your right that leads into the-4 piece main floor bathroom. The bathroom has tiled flooring. It also has a second entrance via a pocket door that connects it with the spacious mud/laundry room. Here you will find tiled flooring, storage cabinets above the space for laundry pair, a deep clean up sink with storage beneath, a coat closet and masses of natural light, that floods in from both the window above the sink and from the skylight above. There’s a convenient built-in bench and you will also find a door leading to the garage and a pocket door leading to the walk-through pantry.
Moving towards the rear of the home, the floor plan opens up into the main trio of living spaces. Note the impressive vaulted ceilings that have pot lights and also the skylight above the kitchen, bringing lots of natural light to the area.
The kitchen is a wonderful place to create, with a granite topped island and a granite raised breakfast bar. Note the deep under-mount sinks (with an Insinkerator Garburator beneath the right hand sink). You will find upgraded appliances including a Bosch quiet dishwasher, a KitchenAid refrigerator with an ice & water service and a KitchenAid gas top stove with a convection oven. Admire the elegant Mocha glazed Maple cabinetry, with under cabinet lighting and appreciate the convenience of the drawers that extend fully, a particularly useful feature with the pan drawers to the right of the stove. The tile back-splash echoes the tile on the floor. There is also a kick plate central vacuum inlet, ideal for sweeping up crumbs should you decide to add a central vacuum canister in future. You will also appreciate the reeded glass door leading into the broad walk-through pantry, which benefits from solid shelves on both sides and offers plenty of space for a chest freezer too.
The kitchen is open plan with the spacious dining area, that has Maple hardwood flooring, a chandelier light fixture , a bay window with two glass block windows offering both natural light and privacy, and garden doors, with built-in blinds, leading out to your beautiful rear yard.
The cozy living room is adjacent to the dining area. It also has Maple hardwood flooring. You will love the gas fireplace, (which comes with a fan), and the deep wooden mantel and its surrounding windows that are dressed with elegant blinds. There are also wall mounted speakers that you can hook up to your sound system.
An arch leads to the door to the master bedroom, which has carpeted flooring, and like the main living areas, a vaulted ceiling. The double aspect windows are dressed with room darkening up/down cellular shades. The master bedroom (like all the bedrooms and the den) is served by a cable television outlet.
An arch from the bedroom leads into the beautiful 4-piece en-suite bathroom, which features tiled flooring, a deep, corner jetted tub, situated beneath a glass block window, a sink with storage and drawers beneath and a glass door walk-in shower. A door leads into the carpeted walk-in closet that has upgraded closet organizers.
From the main level, a carpeted staircase with lighting in the risers, leads down to be beautifully builder finished basement, which benefits from in-floor heating. Note the elegant wooden handrails with the upgraded wrought iron pickets. The 9ft ceilings in the basement give a sense of openness.
Immediately ahead of you in the basement is the huge, carpeted family room, which features pot lights, multiple in-ceiling speakers to hook up to your sound system and a window to the side, dressed with a cellular shade, bringing in natural light.
Either side of the family room are the basement bedrooms, both excellent sizes, both carpeted and with double closets and sizeable windows dressed with cellular shades. One of the rooms features French doors and would work very well as a large den, if you preferred.
The basement also features a 3 pc bathroom with tiled flooring and a glass door walk-in shower.
The utility room offers plenty of additional storage and some built in shelves. Here, you will also find the in floor heat system and a 75 US Gallon hot water tank that was installed in 2016. The Lennox furnace connects to the air conditioning unit, that was installed in 2008.
A further undeveloped space in the basement, currently used as an exercise area, would be very easy to convert into a further bedroom, or a hobby room or workout area. This space has a window to the side.
This beautiful corner lot bungalow is situated in a peaceful and quiet close in ever popular Cimarron Park, with easy access to walking paths and the best of Okotoks' shopping.
Plenty of curb appeal here with the home's elegant stone accents and the new shingles that were installed in 2017, as well as through having the 23 ft wide by 22 ft deep oversized double attached garage situated to the side of the home, rather than being presented in front of the home, as is so often the case.
The garage has an 8 foot garage door with natural light panels. Natural light also comes in through the large windows to the side of the garage that are set in a bay. It is fully drywalled and insulated and offers plenty of room for your future storage solutions. The garage opener comes with an external keypad for convenient push button access.
To the left of the garage, take the steps up to the covered front porch, laid with low maintenance and durable composite decking boards, a lovely spot to sit out. Before you reach the privacy glazed front door, you will appreciate the Phantom Screen that allows for cooling breezes to flow through the home on those days you do not wish to use your central air conditioning. There are also motion sensor pot lights to help welcome you home!
The owners have beautifully landscaped this home. Lawn areas can be found either side of the double driveway. To the side of the garage, you will find Junipers and a hedge row of Lilacs.
To the right of the double driveway, set around the feature rock, you will find a Seabuckthorn tree, flowering Plum, Potentilla and Spirea.
To the left of the drive, in the front garden, you will adore the Rose bushes, the flowering Plum and the Chokecherry tree.
The rear yard is also an absolute delight, fully fenced and completely private. The rear yard features a large deck with a Cedar wooden screen and a Cedar pergola above, as well as a gas line for your BBQ. Or, perhaps you want to take the steps down and relax on the paving stone courtyard patio. Truly, it would be difficult not to feel at peace here. Both the deck and the patio are hidden among an array of flowering trees and you will simply adore the pretty planted borders that surround the lawn area and via an ever blooming perennial garden, provide colour throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. Among the species you will find here are Evans Cherry trees, an Ornamental Crab Apple, a Pear tree and Rose bushes. There's even a super useful rear yard shed.
Behind the home, you’ll also find a row of Raspberries and Rhubarb too!
The yards all around this beautiful home are truly special and I am sure you will love them as much as the current owners clearly have.
