OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY JUNE 11th 2-4pm! Spend less time commuting and more time living in this extremely WELL MAINTAINED home just steps away from a GREEN SPACE and PLAYGROUND in the HISTORICAL COMMUNITY of Garrison Green. This special, family-friendly community pays tribute to Canadian Peacekeepers and officers I in an outstanding INNER-CITY location perfectly balancing amenities with recreation. The FULL WIDTH COVERED VERANDA adds to the curb appeal, greets guests and entices morning coffees with charming street and park views. The interior is equally as impressive with a chic colour pallet, gleaming HARDWOOD FLOORS and an abundance of NATURAL LIGHT that is kept cool by CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING and heated by a HIGH-EFFICIENCY FURNACE. Relax in front of the GAS FIREPLACE in the inviting living room while oversized windows spill in the sunny west exposure sunshine. The kitchen will inspire any chef featuring GRANITE COUNTERTOPS, a peninsula breakfast bar, sink overlooking the living room, STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES with a NEW DISHWASHER, full-height crisp white cabinets and a plethora of counterspace. Adjacently the dining room with clear sightlines throughout has plenty of room for mealtimes and entertaining while patio sliders promote an easy INDOOR/OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE. Conveniently the powder room is off the mudroom for a quick clean up of the kids before entering. The same modern and stylish design is continued into the upper level, home to 3 spacious and bright bedrooms including the MASTER RETREAT complete with a huge WALK-IN CLOSET and a luxuriously PRIVATE ENSUITE boasting a stand-up shower. Gather in the rec room in the FINISHED BASEMENT over movies and games, a curtain handily separates the open and airy space to make room for a gym, office or play area. Laundry is also on this level along with a ton of storage. The MASSIVE BACKYARD is a peaceful oasis tempting casual barbeques and summer nights under the stars thanks to 2 GAS LINES that allow for both a BBQ and a fire table! The FULL-WIDTH 2-TIERED COMPOSITE DECK has seemingly endless space for entertaining and unwinding while the kids play in the grassy yard with a gorgeous APPLE TREE where the birds convene, raised garden beds, a DOUBLE DETACHED GARAGE with a new motor and a PAVED BACK LANE. Garrison Green offers friendly neighbours, a ton of parks, playgrounds, green spaces, walking/bike paths and free libraries. This YOUNG AND VIBRATE COMMUNITY is a hidden gem, within walking distance to Mount Royal University and takes advantage of the many amenities, award-winning restaurants and quaint shops in neighbouring Marda Loop and Garrison Woods, as well as the infinite amount of recreation possibilities at North Glenmore Park. Downtown is a quick and easy drive or the bus rapid transit line is a short 5 minute walk away. Truly an exceptional home in an outstanding community!
