Once upon a time, in the quiet and friendly community of Acadia, lived a welcoming white bungalow with gray shutters and a large shade tree. It existed with the sole purpose of providing a comfortable home for a lovely family who wanted the most out of life. It offered a great location near schools and backed right onto green space and a community garden, a rare find. It also provided direct access to major roads like Bonaventure Drive and Macleod Trail, making it convenient for the family to commute to soccer games and recitals easily.
Stepping inside the front entry, the home greets you with laminate wood flooring and an open concept living space ready to host family gatherings and dinner parties. The kitchen at the back of the house draws you in with its fully renovated and bright finishes. Soft-close white shaker cabinets with elegant crown mouldings reach the ceiling, granite counters glisten from the natural light shining in the sizeable South-facing window, and white subway tile adds that classic touch every home needs. Upgraded stainless steel appliances include a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a range with a flat cooktop, and a dishwasher. The dual basin undermount stainless steel sink has an installed filtered water dispenser and sits below an East-facing window overlooking the trees in the backyard. It’s the perfect spot to watch the sun come up every morning while your pot of coffee is brewing in the background.
The kitchen area is large enough to include a table for a breakfast nook and would be the perfect location for Saturday morning pancakes with the family. Open to the living room, it creates a convenient entertaining space, whether you use it for Saturday morning cartoons or Monday night football games…or both! A large West-facing window floods evening sunshine into the main floor and creates a warm space. The built-in corner desk/office area with floating shelves is great for working remotely or using it for a homework station.
Down the hall are two extra storage/linen closets and three good-sized bedrooms. The large primary bedroom has a sizeable window for natural light, a ceiling fan, and a bifold closet with a built-in organizer for ample clothing storage. Two other bedrooms also have closets with built-in organizers. Large enough for the whole family to enjoy, a 4-piece bathroom has a one-piece vanity with under-sink storage, a full-height built-in cabinet, an oversized framed mirror with tile backsplash, oversized ceramic tile floors, and a tub/shower combo with a handheld showerhead.
If the new owners choose to use the basement suite as an avenue for revenue, there’s plenty of privacy for potential tenants to keep their living areas separate. Once downstairs, there’s a large storage closet behind the stairs and a walk-in closet at the end of the hall. There’s also a huge laundry room equipped with a side-by-side washer/dryer, a laundry sink, a hanging rod, and a built-in folding station with upper and lower cabinetry.
The large illegal basement suite with a full kitchen, bathroom, family room, and bedroom with built-in closet storage is through another door. The kitchen is updated with laminate flooring and black appliances, including a slide-in range, a vented hood fan, a microwave, and a fridge/freezer. Finishes include soft-close white shaker cabinetry, open shelving, and a subway tile backsplash. There’s also an installed filtered water tap at the stainless steel sink. A fully tiled tub/shower combo is located in the 4-piece bathroom finished with ceramic tile flooring, a framed mirror, a one-piece vanity with under sink storage, and a full-height built-in cabinet. The suite also has a separate doorbell and added baseboard heaters in the living room and bedroom with a separate control unit.
An East-facing backyard has mature trees and a detached heated garage. Built-in shelving, a workstation, and a 220V electrical panel are convenient for home projects, and an exterior storage unit and cupboards are built-in to the side of the garage for extra storage space. The backyard has new fencing, two large shade trees, and room to run. There are also planters for flowers and veggies and a garden shed ready for the green thumb in the family. A concrete pad with rear gate access to the paved back lane offers an ideal RV parking setup.
Across the lane, this property backs onto a large green space and community garden, which is great for kids and pets alike. The kids can walk to the local French immersion school, École de la Source, and the whole family can walk to the Osten & Victor Alberta Tennis Centre for a few matches on the weekends. The Acadia rec complex is also within walking distance! With direct access to Bonaventure Drive and Macleod Trail, many SE amenities are within reach. You are going to love the quiet, friendly community of Acadia where your family can live happily ever after!
