This is a stunning 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Energy Star certified custom built home in the lovely village of Russell. Premium pie shaped lot backing onto the nature trail/bike path means no rear neighbours! This home has an all stone front, amazing curb appeal with stone interlock steps and is beautifully landscaped. There are 7 potlights built in for additional nighttime lighting. The insulation was upgrade to R31 in the walls, R50 in attic and the garage doors are even insulated! Incredibly, there is even styrofoam under the siding, for additional savings. As per the builder’s specs, almost 2600 sq ft of living space on main 2 floors and about 900 sq ft in the lower level. This is a lovely big house with plenty of room for everyone and every activity!
The main level flooring is stained hardwood or tile throughout. In 2015 the Kitchen acquired a new backsplash and a stainless steel chimney range hood (to match all the other SS appliances that are included). Open concept Kitchen flows to the massive Family Room, that comes with a stone front natural gas fireplace and is wired for surround sound. There is a CanSolAir solar panel right beside back deck. It sends heat in thru the vent just above the TV in the Fam Room. It can heat entire main level. On this level there is also a Dining Room, Living Room, bathroom and generous sized laundry room that also doubles as a mudroom, as it has access to the double car garage.
The upper level has 5 large bedrooms and a full bathroom with an oversized tub. The hallway itself and the curved stairwell with cast iron spokes are breathtaking. The Master Bedroom had room for a sitting area, an ensuite 4 piece bath which includes a soaker tub, separate shower and access to the walk in closet as well! The other four bedrooms on this floor are a very generous size and each have ceiling fans wired to light switches.
The fully finished lower level has 8 1/2 foot high ceilings (there was an additional 1/2 foot of foundation added when it was built) has a massive theatre/games room (570 square feet), is wired for 5.1 surround sound, a bathroom, a flex room at the foot of the stairs, an office and even a cold storage room! It does not at all feel like a lower level here!
The backyard was specifically leveled to allow for a home ice rink and 500W flood lights are installed for evening play. The awesome landscaping back here includes: an armstrong red maple (narrow spread tree that has been measured and is suitable to be planted close to the house. Leaves go red in the fall), midnight chokecherry tree. (green leaves in the spring, flowers then the leaves turn purple), sunburst honey locust (leaves start yellow, turn green for the summer and bright yellow in the fall.), ginkgo tree. (slow growing, wonderful/neat leaf shape), autumn blaze red maple (will get huge and has fire red leaves in the fall), cut leafed alder (wispy tree) and magnolia shrub (just stunning). With the deck, landscaping, no rear neighbours, enough room for a hockey rink in winter, this one has it all!
On top of a home that has everyting, the location is awesome! Close to all amenities: groceries, drug stores, dining, hardware stores, nature paths, conservation areas, churches, all school boards, arena, curling club, ball diamonds, outdoor pool, etc! Come see for yourself!
