The design

A dream space for a gardener, this home’s west-facing backyard is a beautiful, tranquil area. Professional landscaping with a deck, three-season water feature and fish pond offer plenty of relaxation opportunities. The fish pond provides a natural space for wildlife, Koi or goldfish.


What to love

There is just as much to love inside the home as there is outside. The bright and inviting layout has vaulted ceilings and large windows that welcome natural light. The kitchen features a spacious island with an oversized breakfast bar, ideal for entertaining or enjoying large family breakfasts. The great room on the main floor is the perfect space to gather for holidays with friends and family in front of the fireplace. At the same time, the front den with glassed-in French doors offers a great space to work.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom offers a sizable space to retreat to, complete with a five-piece ensuite and jacuzzi tub. Outside, the appeal continues with a dreamy, tranquil backyard designed to enjoy the warm weather or take in the soothing sounds from the water features.


What to consider

The Elgin Estates homes are close to plenty of local amenities. Lake privileges, a nearby playground, local parks, schools, restaurants and shopping are all within walking or driving distance.
