On the second level, the private quarters begin with an open lounge/den with fantastic morning to afternoon light, wet bar with under mount Sub-Zero and powder room. Completing this level is a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom that can also serve as a private yet bright work from home space.

As a bonus, the walkout lower level with picture windows and access to the rear of the property is finished and offers options for a comfortable home office, play room, home schooling area, fitness room or media room. An over-sized laundry room and two separate storage areas complete the lower level.
