A charming kitchen in the heart of the home

The kitchen presents the best of both worlds; vintage charm with modern amenities.

On the far end of this kitchen sits a cozy fireside nook which would be ideal spot for enjoying breakfast and a coffee on chilly mornings. On the opposite end, you'll find an adjoining dining room, perfect for family meals.

The stainless steel chef-style range, hood, and large refrigerator somehow seamlessly live amongst old-school cabinetry and woodwork. Note the scalloped detailing and dutch door which add yet another unique touch.

Sleep zones

The coziness carries on into the three bedrooms, with every window providing idyllic views of the trees and surrounding woods.

The primary bedroom with en-suite bath completes the main level. The floor below has two more bedrooms, including lovely built-in bunk beds, and a full bath as well as a spacious laundry and storage area.

The perfect WFH set up

A detached room/studio provides excellent work-from-home options with plenty of space for two people.
