Now, this is a home you need to see! Located in the heart of the mature SW community of Somerset, this impressive 4-bed, 3.5-bath 2-storey single-family home with almost 3,000 square feet of total living space across all levels is ideally situated directly across from Somerset Park, making it an ideal haven for families. Somerset Park offers an array of amenities, including a playground, water park, and tennis courts. Plus, enjoy being within walking distance of public and Catholic schools, including Somerset School and Bishop O'Byrne High School, and you are only a 10-minute walk from the Somerset-Bridlewood LRT station. You don't want to miss out on the chance to own this sweet slice of suburbia.

Upon entering the home, you are greeted by the grand, bright and welcoming foyer boasting soaring 2-storey vaulted ceilings. This space offers ample room to remove your shoes and store your belongings in the large coat closet. Just off the front entrance is the main floor office with large bay windows and a walk-in closet, which makes for an excellent spot to work from home or serves as a versatile space, potentially functioning as a fifth bedroom.

Beautiful, newly installed luxury vinyl plank flooring flows throughout the main floor, leading you to the timeless and well-appointed kitchen. Boasting upgraded and newer stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, and abundant cabinet space. The centrepiece is a massive island with a breakfast bar for on-the-go meals and dual sinks equipped with a garburator for added functionality. A corner walkthrough pantry seamlessly connects the kitchen to the laundry/mudroom area - convenient for bringing groceries from the garage! Equipped with everything you need to feel like a proficient home chef, this kitchen is ready for mealtime.

The laundry room is equipped with a newer side-by-side washer and dryer, with the washer only a few months old and the dryer under 5 years old. This space can also double as a mudroom, featuring a large closet and direct access to the garage using the walkthrough pantry into the kitchen.

The formal dining area adjacent to the kitchen offers plenty of space for a full-sized table and seating for dinner parties and larger gatherings. Plus, easy access to the back deck makes for effortless entertaining with friends and family in the summertime.

Showcasing soaring 2-storey vaulted ceilings and large windows allowing abundant natural light to fill the space, the expansive living room allows numerous options for full-sized furniture sets. Settle down and enjoy the gas fireplace while setting the mood for intimate gatherings or serene relaxation. Nestled around the corner is a perfectly private 2-piece powder room completing the main floor.

The fully fenced backyard is landscaped with trees, garden beds, and planter boxes and offers plenty of yard space – an idyllic outdoor area for the whole family. Parking is also fantastic, with the attached double garage off the laundry/mudroom and extended driveway. The garage comes complete with extensive shelving.

Leading the way to the second floor, the staircase features white lacquered oak detail on the railings and plush carpet. The second floor hosts three sizable bedrooms and two full bathrooms with newly installed tiled flooring.

Entering the primary suite, you'll find a large window offering picturesque views while filling the room with natural light, complemented by a solid wood barn door leading to the 5-piece ensuite bathroom. The ensuite boasts a large vanity with dual undermount sinks, quartz countertops, under-counter storage, a jetted soaker tub, a fully-tiled stand-up shower with a bench, and a newer toilet. Additionally, a spacious walk-in closet allows for plentiful storage.

Two more bright and generously sized bedrooms across the hall have large windows overlooking the park, allowing ample natural light to filter through. The main bathroom features a vanity with a quartz countertop, under-counter storage, a fully tiled tub/shower, and a newer toilet.

Downstairs, the fully developed walkout basement boasts almost 1,000 sq ft of additional living space, featuring hard surface flooring throughout the rec room and wet bar areas. Large windows adorning the spacious rec room fill the space with ample natural light, plus a bonus flex room makes for an ideal play area. The walkout design seamlessly transitions to the outdoor space, featuring a concrete patio. 

Across the hall lies a comfortable guest bedroom featuring a well-sized closet and easy access to the full 3-piece bathroom. Lastly, an expansive wet bar area boasting granite countertops and additional flex space separate from the main areas is the perfect games room, adding to the basement's appeal. Storage is made easy with space underneath the stairs.

Additional upgrades of this property include central air conditioning within the last 6 years, a new high-efficiency furnace within the last 5 years, a new roof and garage door within the past two years, and the backyard deck built within the past three years.

Located away from the hustle of downtown, Somerset is a lovely, family-friendly community close to plenty of amenities, including parks, playgrounds, schools and shopping. Plus, the Shawnessy community is right around the corner, where you and your family can enjoy year-round activities, including swimming, fishing, and disc golf in the summer (there's a six-hole course!). In the winter, bundle up and head to the toboggan hills, go for a cross-country ski, ice skate on the pleasure rink with music and firepit, or play some hockey on one of the two lake rinks! You're also a short drive away from Marshall Springs - Fish Creek Provincial Park and its extensive pathway system. Shawnessy Shopping Centre is less than ten minutes away and has everything you need for groceries, retail, amenities, and entertainment! There's a Walmart, Calgary Co-op, multiple pet stores, many restaurants, a movie theatre, and a YMCA.
