All in the fam­ily

room — is sub­tly seg­mented and well-pro­por­tioned. “You need that kind of space if you have a large fam­ily liv­ing in the home, es­pe­cially if they like to spend time to­gether or en­ter­tain. The kitchen is ab­so­lutely huge with an is­land that’s about 10 feet long and seats four,” he said. “There’s lots of room to move, as the aisle be­tween the is­land and built-in (Frigidaire) cook­top is five feet wide.” A fetch­ing com­bi­na­tion of French white and choco­late maple cab­i­nets (the white cab­i­nets up high, dark ones down low) — and coun­ter­tops of con­trast­ing colours: white quartz on the is­land and taupe quartz for the coun­ter­tops. A white sub­way tile back­splash makes the dark cab­i­nets pop. “There’s also a mas­sive pantry on the wall op­po­site the is­land,” added Brar. “With the pantry and all the cab­i­nets, there’s no lack of stor­age space.” Style is also om­nipresent in the form of rich en­gi­neered hick­ory hard­woods that run from the front-ori­ented din­ing/flex space through the kitchen, dinette area and fam­ily room. Ad­di­tional fea­tures such as the pantry’s dark-stained dou­ble doors add character to the main liv­ing area. “Even though it’s a large area, it still feels warm,” he said. “It just shows you that when you choose the right colours and fin­ish­ing ma­te­ri­als and add just the right amount of def­i­ni­tion to each space in a large area, it can still feel quite cosy.” The din­ing area — which is at the end of the kitchen — can seat four to six eas­ily, and is next to pa­tio doors that lead to an el­e­vated deck.” Sep­a­rated neatly from the din­ing area by a one-third stub wall, the fam­ily room caps off the great room with a huge pic­ture win­dow and gas fire­place set in a beige cul­tured stone sur­round. A dark maple unit ca­pa­ble of hold­ing a 60-inch flat-panel TV oc­cu­pies the wall next to the fire­place. Head up­stairs, and you find an area that’s es­sen­tially been di­vided into two sec­tions. “The first half is a huge loft area that can be used as a me­dia room, play room or even an of­fice. Two large bed­rooms were placed off it to the left, and a wall comes out to cre­ate a six-foot en­trance that takes you to a third bed­room, four-piece bath, li­nen closet and the master suite.” Ac­cessed via a dou­ble-door en­trance, the master suite is de­fined by a tray ceil­ing and flooded with nat­u­ral light cour­tesy of a big, three-piece pic­ture win­dow. “It’s a beau­ti­ful space that was de­signed to make you feel like you have your own day spa,” Brar said. “It fea­tures a taupe tile floor, an­gled soaker tub placed be­tween two win­dows (on the rear wall and ad­ja­cent wall), five-foot shower and dark maple van­ity with dual raised sinks. There’s also a huge walk-in closet with tons of built-in stor­age next to it.” The Bramp­ton — thanks to its well-ex­e­cuted floor plan and deft com­bi­na­tion of space, style and func­tion­al­ity — is the quin­tes­sen­tial fam­ily/multi-fam­ily home. “Ev­ery­one who’s viewed the home has loved ev­ery­thing about it. I think it de­liv­ers in­cred­i­ble value. It comes loaded with all kinds of style and func­tion for $699,900,” he said.
