Step inside to this light and airy home with an open plan designed for family living or entertaining large crowds. On the main level, ceilings soar high above and the handsome laminate flooring is striking. This is a wonderful floor plan where essential rooms are on the main floor for one level living, however, you have the fully finished lower level space which can be used in a variety of ways.

A spacious dining area faces the front gardens and can easily accommodate a large table.
