Custom bungalow magnificent in every way

Often when it comes to properties outside the city, although the lots are big and beautiful, the houses tend to be dated.

There are no such issues with 675 Shalom Path, says Royce Finley of Royal Lepage Prime Real Estate.

“This home was custom built in 2019 by K. Streu Homes,” he says of the 2,508 square-foot, five bedroom bungalow. “It features a mid-century-modern design that’s filled with high-quality finishes and light.”

In short, it’s a design that proves that a creatively conceived home doesn’t necessarily lack function.

That becomes apparent the moment you step into the home’s magnificent main living area, says Finley.

“You immediately notice two things – the sunken living to the right, and the wall of windows behind it. The floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light and look out onto the backyard deck and beautifully treed backyard.”

And while the floor plan is open concept, it’s not too open, a cool-looking wall with three-sided fireplace subtly separates the family room and kitchen.

“Cement board style panels match the feature wall in the living room, while wooden shelving around its base match the wood slat wall that separates the foyer and lower-level stairwell from the living room,” he notes. “The wood adds warmth, and in the case of the wood slat wall, it lets light from a huge window over the stairs flow into the family room.”

Turns out, the kitchen is just as jaw-dropping as the fabulous family room.

“It has the same cement tile flooring as the family room, and comes with matte grey Caesarstone quartz countertops, glossy white cabinets and a large island with a wine fridge and seating for three,” says Finley. “There’s also a built-in cooktop and double sink. Both are next to huge windows.”

Next comes a pair of truly special spaces – one to the rear of the kitchen, the other to its right.

“The first space is a gorgeous four-season sunroom with two windows that let in tons of sunlight and look out onto the backyard. A patio door on its side wall also leads out to a covered deck.”

Then, there’s the adjacent dining area.

“It’s set perfectly between the kitchen and living room, and because it’s next to the windows on the rear wall, you get all kinds of natural light, and a great view of the backyard.”

Finley adds that kids and parents alike will love the way the home’s bedroom wing – which was placed just to the right of the foyer – was designed.

“It starts off with a pair of kids’ bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with heated cement tile floor. A large laundry room was placed between the kids’ bedrooms and primary bedroom to create a nice sense of privacy.”

Situated at the end of the hallway in its own remote corner of the home, the primary bedroom is a very well-appointed Fortress of Solitude.

“There’s lots of space and light, and the backyard view through the two huge windows on its rear wall is just so relaxing,” Finley says. “The ensuite is amazing with its heated floor, custom steam shower, floating vanity with his/her sinks and its soaker tub, which is set next to a pair of huge windows that allow sunlight to stream inside.”

He adds that the home’s lower level is ready to go.

“It was recently finished, and offers a huge rec room, two bedrooms with walk-in closets, a bathroom, mechanical room with two furnaces and hot water tanks, lots of storage – and a gym with an industrial grade floor. You also get an insulated triple car garage with heater and construction sink.”

Finally, there’s the home’s overall quality and excellent location.

“No expense was spared in the construction of the homes, and all the finishes are high-quality,” says Finley. “Location-wise, you’re off a paved road in a world of your own, sheltered by a belt of trees that’s not only beautiful, but provides privacy. It’s an incredible home in every way.”
