Opulent curb appeal is the first thing to catch your eye as you drive up to this 2,647 square foot detached home in Bridgeland.
It’s easy to see why Bridgeland is consistently rated in the top 10 in Avenue Magazine’s “Best Neighbourhoods.” It’s close to amenities, Downtown, Bridgeland Market, Made by Marcus, OEB Breakfast, Blue Star Diner, and more! There are tons of parks nearby, and you’re less than a 15-minute walk away from the Bow River pathway. The area has seen lots of development recently, which means other modern infills line the streets for an upscale and clean neighbourhood feel.
Quality stonework complements the modern exterior filled with windows, and a fully landscaped yard welcomes you to the front porch.

Around the corner is an extra built-in storage closet with full-height cabinetry and rough-ins for a stacked washer/dryer with upper cabinets. Two good-sized rooms can be used as bedrooms if you’re using the basement as a suite, or for more living space, these areas would be perfect for a home gym and theatre room! Both have easy access to the main 4-piece bathroom with polished stone-like heated tile floors, tub/shower combo with full-height bevelled subway tile surround, two-tone flat panel cabinetry, open display shelf, Vicostone quartz countertop, & sleek Matteo wall sconce light.
