A Home Full of Updates, and a Park-like Backyard with No Rear Neighbours!
Desirable Homes Like This Don't Come to Market Every Day!
We have a lot of really exciting things to share about our newest listing at 385 Northlake Drive in Waterloo. This home is located in a neighbourhood that is a very desirable place to live - close to St. Jacobs Farmer's Market, Conestoga Mall, all kinds of other shopping amenities, and the Highway 85 interchange. You'll also find trail systems just steps from your front door.
The lifestyle this part of Waterloo offers is really second to none!
A Main Floor Jam Packed with Updates & Features
The updates in this home start right at the front door - quite literally! The homeowners installed a beautiful front door with patterned glass, and even installed matching garage doors as well, giving this home some great curb appeal. The home's foyer is also quite large, offering a great space for larger families to take off their outside clothing without the space feeling cramped or crowded in the least.
Heading down the hallway from the foyer takes you into the more formal living room, a space that is clearly built for entertaining!
All of the windows in the front of the home are newer and quite large as well, offering tons of natural light. The main floor has engineered hardwood that carries throughout, and is in very good condition. This home also has a dedicated dining room aside from the eat-in kitchen, which could house a large dining table and cabinets, if desired.
Moving into the home's kitchen, you'll find stainless kitchen appliances and some really nice granite countertops. Storage and countertop space will never be an issue again, as the beautiful wrap-around countertop and dedicated pantry beside the kitchen makes working here a dream - even if you share the kitchen with a sous-chef!
Through the eat-in kitchen, this home also has a large second living space (with a beautiful fireplace we'll talk about later) and a home office. Right off the double car garage there's also a laundry/mud room - featuring really nice tile work, a full laundry sink, and a door that leads out to the garage.
Three Large Upstairs Bedrooms - and the Ensuite of your DREAMS!
If you have read any of our previous single family listing blogs, you'll know just how much we LOVE homes with three bedrooms upstairs - and we offer major bonus points to homes with two upper level bathrooms as well. It offers so much flexibility for families, and we're thrilled to share that this home does indeed fit that bill.
The staircase leading upstairs has recently been redone, and we can say that it looks great! All three bedrooms on the upper level are large and have good sized windows and dedicated closets.
The primary bedroom is absolutely HUGE - there's a king size bed currently in it and there's still tons of room to move around. But possibly the best feature here is the custom ensuite bathroom! The entire bathroom has been custom built with great glass and tilework, a double vanity, and heated flooring. This bathroom is luxury, and we really couldn't dream up a more perfect ensuite!
A Completely Finished Lower Level
The lower level of this home is not only completely finished, but it's incredibly spacious as well!
The lower landing area is huge - it could certainly be set up as a home gym, home theatre, studio, or anything else that meets your needs.
There's lots of other bonus spaces as well - closets for storage, a room currently being used as a home studio, a cold room, a full 3-piece bathroom, and a utility room with tons of storage and even an entire workbench. There is so much potential in this basement just waiting for your special touches!
Privacy is the Name of the Game - and No Rear Neighbours!
This backyard is beautiful and very, very private. It has no rear neighbours, and really gives off a park-like feel being so lush and well-manicured.
One of the things that we love so much is that this home is fully fenced - perfect for you pet owners! The home also has a very large deck overlooking the mature trees and well-manicured lawn, a perfect (and quiet) space for entertaining in the summer months.
Some More Great Features!
Here are a few other great features that we think you're going to want to know:
The only rented appliance in this home is the water heater ($41.14 per month) - everything else (the AC unit, furnace, and water softener) are owned. The homeowners also put in an elaborate and expensive RO system, ensuring quality water throughout the house.
The fireplace in the home's rear living room was built with some beautiful brickwork surrounding it, and is used by the homeowners on a regular basis during the winter months. It was cleaned 2 years ago to ensure that it remains in great working order.
This home's location is one of the things that makes it so great, being located right beside public access to a great trail system. Even though the home does back onto that public pathway, you'll never notice the public using it because of the fence and all of the foliage that blocks the pathway. Certainly a nice little feature, we think!
