An exhibition of creative space-making, this family home brings West-Coast to YXE with supreme conviction. A ‘picture perfect’ two-story approach with veranda & mature Spruces serves as a proverbial welcoming mat that will make you fill with pride each and every time you return home, or host friends and family. From foyer to main floor laundry, powder room to direct garage entry, function is streamlined in a most sensible fashion within an amazing floor plan. It is one that balances traditional sensibilities with contemporary design with a front family room with study stations for the kids’ after-school tasks & crafts.
