Come and view this beautiful lake community home, situated at the head of a cul-de-sac on a massive pie shaped, park-like south facing lot that offers direct access to green space & walking paths.
Over 3,400sf of developed space opens with a main floor den.

A huge mud/laundry room & a half bathroom complete this level.

The basement is a delight & features a 5th bedroom, a full bathroom, a bar, a family room with a gas fireplace & you’ll love the media area (projection screen & some speakers stay!)
The rear yard is fabulous. Gigantic, 2 level deck. Masses of trees & shrubs. Lots of space for the kids to play. Storage under the deck. Large shed. Terrific dog run. Garage is 22ft x 28ft deep!

The kitchen is absolutely enormous and features tiled flooring, a huge central island with a Blanco Silgranit sink with a garburator beneath. The island also features a breakfast bar and look down and you will see a central vacuum inlet, ideal for swiftly cleaning up crumbs and such. You’ll also appreciate the wine rack.
There is a mass of of perimeter lower and upper cabinetry and a plentiful supply of pan drawers.

If there is a dog in your life, you will also appreciate the dog hatch leading out from the mud/laundry room into the side yard dog run.
Also accessible from the mud/laundry room is the 2-piece half bathroom, which has tile flooring, whilst a further door from this area leads into the very spacious double attached garage.
From the main level, take the elegant staircase up to the bedroom level. Note the upgraded handrail and wrought iron spindles as well as the display shelf. Above the staircase, you’ll see a ceiling fan/light fixture that circulates cool air around the upper level of the home.
This home has four very large bedroom upstairs with carpeting running through each of these rooms and the landing around which all the bedrooms are arranged.
Ahead of you at the top of the stairs is the huge master bedroom, which has large windows to the rear, dressed with up/down cellular shades. There is a linen closet within the bedroom area (as well as another out on the upper level landing).

Exterior / Garage
From the main level, take the carpeted staircase down to the beautifully and fully finished basement, which was completed with all the appropriate permits.
At the base of the stairs, on your right hand side is a door into the huge basement bedroom. Here, you will find a window to one side, a deep step-in closet and a built-in workstation. The room is carpeted and has both a heating vent in the ceiling and an electric heater on the wall.
Leaving the bedroom and walking towards the rear of the home, the splendor of the basement development really becomes apparent. Note the elegant paneled walls and the pot lighting.
On your left you will see the custom built bar, that has plenty of room for bar stools as well as lots of storage space beneath the counter-top. You’ll appreciate the sink in the bar area and both the microwave oven and beverage refrigerator that are both included with the sale.
You’ll love the media area! The projection screen stays with the home, as do the four wall mounted Polk Audio surround speakers and the Polk Audio central speaker beneath the screen.
The remainder of the basement living area is set up as a carpeted family room with a thermostatically controlled gas fireplace. It would work equally well as a recreation area if you so wished.
Completing the basement are the 4-piece bathroom and the utility room, where you will find a water softener.
This 2 storey home, situated in Okotoks only lake community, at the head of a family friendly cul-de-sac, has plenty of curb appeal. The front yard features a double driveway with a lawn area to one side that is set with maturing trees. A concrete walkway leads to your covered front porch, which is totally private and peaceful.
To the right (West) of the property, a chain link gate leads through to the massive pie shaped rear yard. The West perimeter of the yard is delineated with a chain link fence and a row of maturing trees. At the South West corner of the yard, a chain link gate grants access to one of the most private and peaceful segments of the Crystal Shores green space and walking path system. If you choose to walk out on the paths, in mere minutes, you will arrive at Dr Morris Gibson Elementary School and a few minutes more walking will bring you to the Crystal Shores Beach House facility, a fantastic family oriented development offering things to do all through the year.
Back in your park like rear yard, you will love the practicality of the mass of storage space underneath the enormous deck.
The South and East perimeters of the yard have six foot wooden fences and an array of maturing trees and shrubs set in landscaped borders. There is a plentiful supply of lawn area for the kids to play out in complete safety, including in the large shed/play-house in the South-East corner of the yard.
The Eastern side yard is set up as a quite fantastic dog run. Wooden fencing to the North and East keeps your pet both safe and undisturbed, whilst a chain link fence and gate bars access to the rest of the yard. The whole area is set on a concrete pad and to ensure your pet always feels part of the family, they can access the house from the dog run via the custom built steps and hatch that leads into the main floor mud/laundry room!
We are not yet finished with this quite stunning yard! From the main level of the home, you can step out onto your huge deck, with its perimeter of aluminum rails and pickets and a gas line for your BBQ. There’s room for the entire family to sit out and enjoy the warm southerly exposure.
Or maybe you want to take the steps down to the lower level deck and lounge out in peace and quiet.
The deck is lined with raised and planted borders and if all this was not already enough, the rear yard is served by a multi zone in-ground sprinkler system.
The double attached garage is very large and measures 22 feet wide by a massive 28 feet in depth! Your truck will fit! Inside, you will find plenty of built-in storage shelves. Conveniently, the canister for the central vacuum system is also hosted here. There is also a man door at the rear of the garage, that leads out to the dog run area.
To top it all off, the shingles, soffits and vinyl siding of this home were replaced as recently as 2016 and so you can look forward to many years of low maintenance living!
