Evergreen trees and mature landscaping frame this 2-storey detached home sitting on a quiet street in the community of Shaganappi. Situated on a deep 150’ lot, this home has over 3,000 square feet spread across three floors, so your growing family doesn’t have to worry about running out of space!
First impressions cannot be underestimated, and the charming curb appeal of 1423 28 Street SW creates a magnetic quality that draws you in. Exposed aggregate steps lead through the front garden and to a front patio where you can enjoy a beverage with the neighbours or with your friend who stopped in for a chat. Through the front door, the foyer greets you with a proverbial smile and a feeling of “welcome home.” Built-in storage offers a landing place for purses and keys and the coat closet a home for coats and shoes.
9’ ceilings open into a formal dining room with a sizeable East-facing window, hardwood flooring, and an exquisite chandelier. This will quickly become a place where family traditions are upheld and eternal memories are made.
Let’s not forget the memories made in the kitchen. The central kitchen offers a well-equipped and functional space for cooking daily meals, baking a fresh batch of cookies, or preparing the big Christmas dinner you have planned. With room for the whole family to prep, chat, eat, and wash up, you’ll also find everything you need, from a walk-in pantry and lots of cabinet storage to granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The island has a raised eating bar and a flush eating bar, a 60/40 stainless steel sink, and a filtered water tap for healthier drinking water. There’s also a built-in buffet, which would make a great coffee bar or a fine dinnerware cabinet/display.
Ideal for Saturday morning pancakes with the kiddos, the open concept breakfast room gives you a convenient area for quick meals or even a game of cards after dinner. The rear living room features an oversized West-facing window overlooking the backyard, a gas fireplace with a stone surround, and a built-in entertainment/shelving unit. This living area also offers direct access to the West backyard.
After a long day, retreating upstairs to bed is a welcome activity. And a retreat is exactly what you’ll find in the master suite. It’s filled with a natural glow from all the West- and South-facing windows, and the sizeable room offers enough space for a reading nook. The 5-piece ensuite has everything you need with a jetted soaker tub, dual vanities with cabinet storage, a standup shower, a private water closet, and built-in linen shelving. The walk-in closet also provides a good amount of storage space for two wardrobes.
Hardwood floors cover the second-floor hallway leading to the good-sized secondary bedrooms. The first bedroom has a built-in desk, perfect for a homework station, and the larger East-facing bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and a walk-in closet. They share use of the main 4-piece bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Across the hall is the formal laundry room with a side-by-side washer/dryer and a folder counter with a laundry sink. Everything you need for maintaining the home for the whole family is at your fingertips.
Just when you think, “there couldn’t possibly be more,” there is! The basement was fully completed in 2013 with warming cork floors, a full wet bar with a full-sized fridge, a brick gas fireplace, a built-in media center, and large windows. It’s a great entertaining room; whether you like to watch “the big game,” a cinematic classic, or enjoy a board game night, all the amenities and space are available to you. Down the hall, a fourth bedroom is a great space for older kids or overnight guests with easy access to the 3-piece bathroom, complete with a tiled walk-in shower and oversized vanity.
The backyard amenities plead for everyone to come outside year-round, and the indoor/outdoor entertaining space you’ve always wanted awaits! Enjoy a summer evening cooking at the built-in BBQ station or a chilly autumn day in the hot tub. It’s low maintenance with a lower tiled patio, so there’s no mowing. Large evergreen trees offer privacy, and a double detached garage provides shelter for up to two vehicles, tools, toys, and more.
Other home upgrades include a new roof installed in 2016, and air conditioning was added in 2013.
