The sun-filled Living/Dining Room boasts airy 9 and 11 ft over-height ceilings, lovely Maple wood flooring, and expansive picture windows inviting eastern and southern sunshine indoors. The generously sized Dining Room features an elegant chandelier, stylish crown molding, and additional space for your hutch.

A half-wall separates the Dining Room from the adjacent Kitchen/Family Room, where a wall of glass bathes the space in soft natural light, framing lovely views over the landscaped grounds. The spacious Family Room centers around a tile- faced natural gas fireplace, a stylish focal point offering cozy ambiance on cooler autumn evenings.

The family chef will delight in the 5 pc Deluxe Kitchen, with its functional layout, beautiful Maple cabinetry, sumptuous black quartz countertops, inset lighting, and easy-care tile flooring. High-end stainless-steel appliances, including an 'LG' fridge, a 'Bosch' dishwasher, and a 'Dacor' stove and microwave, complete the gourmet experience.

Enjoy morning coffees and quick snacks in the sizable Nook with glass on three walls, or step through the glass door for al fresco dining on the large deck while relishing the tranquility and expansive views reaching over Craig Bay to the distant sea. A convenient natural gas outlet awaits your barbecue—an ideal setup for an authentic 'Surf & Turf' Island BBQ!

The Primary Bedroom Suite is a restful retreat, featuring a mirrored walk-in closet and a 5 pc ensuite with a dual sink vanity, water closet, glass shower, and a separate tub. A hallway off the foyer hosts a 2 pc Powder Room with a glass vessel sink and ceramic tile flooring, as well as a Laundry Room with a stackable washer/dryer, a linen closet, and access to a spacious Double Garage with room for a workbench.

Ascend the glass-railed staircase to the 1514 sq ft lower level, offering incomparable guest accommodations and versatile flex space to meet your every need. The large Family/Media/Rec Room features a second natural gas fireplace, ample windows for brightness, and a sliding glass door to a covered patio. Use this fabulous space as a Games Room, an exercise and yoga room, a hobby space, or add a murphy bed for additional accommodation.

Adjacent is a Second Bedroom with a walk-in closet and cheater ensuite access to a 3 pc Bath with ceramic tile flooring and a shower—a perfect 'Bed & Bath Suite' for your visiting friends and family!
