The south-facing family room is a welcoming gathering spot, whether you're basking in the sunshine during the day or cozying up by the natural gas fireplace on chilly nights.

A contemporary black and white staircase leads to the second floor, where you'll find the master bedroom with a luxurious 5-piece ensuite, as well as an additional 4-piece ensuite bedroom. The laundry room, oversized linen closet, and two more bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, sharing a double-sink bathroom, complete the second floor. All bathrooms on this level feature in-floor heating, and skylight windows fill the hallway and stairway with abundant natural light. Step onto the master bedroom's south balcony to savor a glass of wine while enjoying stunning nighttime views of the downtown cityscape.
The fully finished basement features in-floor heating, built-in cabinetry, a fireplace, and a wet bar, creating an inviting space for relaxation and entertainment. An extra-large 5th bedroom and a 4-piece bathroom offer flexibility for guests or family members, and there is ample storage throughout the basement.
