This is what you and your young family are dreaming about. In this quiet North St. Catharines’ cul-de-sac, 5 Ellen Circle catches your eye immediately. From its sleek Mid-Century design to the modern exterior colour palette and the willowy mature trees surrounding it, this home beckons you to come inside.
The interior is bathed in light from the huge picture windows, which highlights the beautifully refinished original floorboards.
A generous open-plan kitchen, complete with subway tile backsplash and polished concrete benchtops, allows you to chat with friends in the dining area while throwing together your culinary creations. And, the access to the rear keeps you in connection with the kids playing in the lovely large backyard. Get-togethers naturally spill out onto the patio area or into the first living area on cooler evenings.
For the serious entertainer, impress your friends in the second living space downstairs, which features a slate floor, cozy high-efficiency wood-burning fireplace, and reclaimed wood bar for mixing up a cocktail or two.
Entrepreneurs and freelancers will appreciate the downstairs office space. Also on this level is plenty of storage and a laundry area.
Back UP to the top of this airy and light split-level home are three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and a large 4-piece bathroom.
THE LIFESTYLE The open-plan layout of this hip home and its connection to the outdoors gives a feeling of space and offers the occupants quality of life. There are tons of updates, which leaves you with nothing to do and everything to love! You will enjoy entertaining here or just escaping from the everyday.
Take a 3-minute walk to picturesque Walkers’ Creek Trail or a 5-minute bike ride to the Lake’s shore. Within a 10-minute drive, you can taste some of the Niagara Region’s finest wines right at the cellar door. Or, in 10 minutes, you can enjoy shopping, arts, entertainment, and dining in downtown St. Catharines. Right over your back fence is one of Niagara’s finest Elementary Schools, Prince Philip Public. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that!
