Some of the best homes are a blend of great features, like a tasty recipe. At 512 Laurier, there are lots of details (big and small) that add up to a home you’ll absolutely love.

Walking up to the home, you’ll notice the four-car parking in the driveway, the winding interlock path, and the perennial gardens, which are getting ready to bloom. The owners have replaced the old vinyl siding with stucco, put in very high quality Dashwood-Anderson windows, replaced all outside swinging doors with heavy-duty three-point latch doors that don’t warp and are much safer. The roof was replaced in 2013 with architectural-style shingles.

Just a few doors away, the kids can visit the toboggan hill, and there’s a plaza with a grocery store and lots of food choices, including a breakfast cafe and ice cream shop.

The home is a five-level sidesplit design, with more than 2,500 square feet of space (download the floor plan here). Ground-level, as you walk into the front door, includes a door to the garage, a laundry room with built-in cabinets, a powder room, and the family room with a walk-out to the lower wood deck in the yard. The highlight of the room is the electric fireplace, surrounded by square stone and a mantle that’s over 100 years old, originally found in a Quebec barn.

Walking up a few steps, there’s a living and dining room with a huge window that overlooks the front yard, but the highlight of this home is definitely the kitchen. With an island larger than most kitchens, this area will accommodate even the largest family gatherings. There’s a prep sink, a generous amount of counter space, and even a workstation desk in the corner if you’re not the one in charge of the meal.

The Kitchenaid appliances are top quality, and the Decor gas cooktop with Ventahood is as close to a professional chef’s setup as you’ll find in a home.

Take a look inside some of the cabinets to see all of the pull-out drawers, lazy susans in the corner, and areas to store all of your kitchen tools and dishes. There’s a huge window overlooking the backyard, with a door to the upper deck. The eat-in area overlooks the family room – so even though the two areas are on different levels, they’re very much connected by an open design.

This kitchen was also part of a larger addition project to add more space. The original kitchen ended around where the countertop stops.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including the master suite with a walk-in closet and a washroom with a shower. This bathroom was added to give the option of a second area to shower. The original floor plan only had the one main washroom. There’s a jacuzzi tub in the hallway washroom, a linen closet, and two other nice-sized rooms.

The lower level includes extra storage space created by the kitchen addition, plus an area that could be a bedroom or a home office, and it’s the perfect size for a pool table. This area opens up to the rec room, and it could remain open or can be easily closed off.

The basement is just a few steps down and includes lots of storage cupboards. Be sure to look under the stairs – there’s a dedicated area for wrapping presents! There’s a space for absolutely everything in this home.

Throughout the home, you’ll find upgraded door and window casings, tall baseboards, and crown moulding. The attic insulation has been upgraded to R60, and the furnace and air conditioner have been replaced last year.

There are three ways to get to the backyard – there are doors from the family room, the laundry room or the kitchen. The two-tiered deck levels were both built with a hexagonal design, with a covered gazebo on the lower deck and clear panels to see the yard from the upper deck. There’s an 8’ x 12’ shed with electricity, a pergola seating area next to the fountain, and more wonderful perennial gardens. The trees fill in through the warmer months and surround the yard like a comfy, warm blanket. The neighbours are quiet, and it’s very peaceful and relaxing from any part of the yard.

There are so many things to love about this property. The pride of ownership is evident everywhere you look. The neighbourhood provides great central access to everything Milton has to offer, including the Go Train station just a few minutes away, great schools and parks, and friendly easygoing neighbours. You’ll love this home for many years to come.

About the Neighbourhood

Timberlea

Timberlea was built mostly in the 1980’s, and you tend to get more square footage and size than many of the homes in Old Milton and Dorset Park. Double-garage two-storey homes are very popular with growing families, and the area can be a great balance between modern features like larger closets and ensuite washrooms, and having a lot size much larger than many of the newer neighbourhoods.
