As you look through the home you will realize no expense was spared - quality workmanship and finishings are throughout. The honey oak floor complements perfectly the dark wood cabinetry and granite counters. The kitchen boasts 4 Stainless appliances with the deluxe washer and dryer only steps away. Other beautifully nuanced design touches include vessel sinks in the bathroom (His and Hers in the Master ensuite!), Illusion window coverings, tiled floor and a lovely Dimplex electric fireplace.
