Style meets practicality in St. Adolphe

Large and efficient bungalow designed for the future

On occasion, a sensation hits you shortly after you’ve walked through a home: everything feels just right.

That’s the feeling you get after touring Broadview Homes’ new show home at 7 Chimney Swift Way in St. Adolphe’s Tourond Creek, says Bruce Gemmel, sales representative for the 1,451 square-foot bungalow.

“This is a really well-designed home,” he says of the Prichard, which comes equipped with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. “Everything is in the right place from start to finish.”

Efficient yet elegant and creative yet cozy, the cleverly crafted bungalow draws you in the moment you walk up its front steps.

“This version of the home features an optional front porch,” notes Gemmel. “It’s covered, very cozy and comes with a composite deck that’s a breeze to maintain year-round. It’s a wonderful little space that gets the home off to a great start.”

From there, a spacious, semi-enclosed foyer angles subtly to the right.

The home’s main living area is (more or less) straight ahead, with the bedroom wing tucked away down a hallway to the right.

“It starts off with a good-sized space that can be used two different ways. Empty nesters could use it as an office, while families could use it as a second bedroom for one of the kids, or even as an in-law suite.”

Turns out, the next space – a well-placed mudroom – is a real gem.

“There’s just so much room to work with,” Gemmel says. “You can walk in with a load of groceries or hockey equipment and still have plenty of room to move. It also connects directly to a huge 30-foot by 22-foot double garage.”

The bedroom wing is then completed by bedroom three – and a well-appointed four-piece bath that neatly separates the secondary bedrooms from the primary bedroom, which is set down its own six-foot-long hallway to the left.

“It’s a beautiful space,” he says. “A seafoam green feature wall gives it a calming feel, and sunlight floods in from a large window on its rear wall. There’s also a big walk-in closet and three-piece ensuite with walk-in shower, grey vanity, and vinyl marble-style floor.”

The Pritchard’s personality then transforms from the bedroom wing’s efficient elegance to the main living area’s creative yet cozy design.

“I love how the back of the home faces south – a rear wall of windows allows you to enjoy sunlight all day long. At the same time, a nine-foot ceiling works together with a great layout to give the area a sense of space and excellent flow.”

Indeed, flow from space to space is excellent. Yet, each space is well-defined and sufficiently spacious.

Subtle style is ever-present, starting with the eye-catching island kitchen.

“The island, which seats two, is just the perfect size,” says Gemmel. “There’s lots of white soft close cabinets, quartz countertops and a gorgeous ceramic tile backsplash. A corner pantry adds storage space, and barnwood-style flooring goes nicely with the country-style cabinets. The dining area is just steps away next to a patio door that leads out to a huge backyard.”

Finally, there’s the family room, which serves as the main living area’s crowning touch.

“Its entertainment unit, with its cultured stone feature wall, maple entertainment unit and electric fireplace, adds to the area’s modern/rustic charm,” he says. “The finishes, natural light and sense of space make you feel right at home. Every space is placed perfectly and works exactly as it should.”

He adds that the home’s impeccable design and style is matched by its value.

“You can get it for $580,000 plus GST with all the show home options included. With another 895 sq. ft. of livable space to develop downstairs in the lower level, this home – which is in a quiet, countrified community just a short drive from the city, would work equally well for downsizers or a young family.”
