Before I became a real estate agent, I never really thought about it. A raised bungalow is probably the perfect style of house, certainly the most versatile.
Because the basement level is mostly above grade, it usually has large basement windows that let in lots of sunlight making the basement excellent and fully usable space.
Because the master bedroom (all the bedrooms) are on the main floor, a raised bungalow is perfect for young families who like and want to be close together. Raised bungalows are also perfect for seniors who do not like to climb stairs to the bedroom level.
15 Wheatfield Crescent, Kitchener
Located in Pioneer Park and situated on a quiet crescent, this raised bungalow features three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The eat-in kitchen has lots of cupboard space with additional pantry cupboards extending into the sunny dinette. Sliding doors off the kitchen lead to a large deck with a excellent view of the fully fenced back yard. The back yard gets sun all day and there are Linden and Maple trees providing shade for those hot summer days. There is a garden shed.
Because this home is a raise bungalow, the basement get lots of natural light. With an entrance from an oversized garage, the fully finished basement has a large rec room with gas fireplace and a newly renovated three piece bathroom.
Other features include, double driveway, neutral colours, open concept design, large bedrooms, main floor master bedroom, central air, central vac, water softener, reverse osmosis water purifier and close proximity to schools, green spaces and parks, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, toboggan hills, a skate park, community gardens, restaurants and shopping, the 401, Cambridge and many other amenities including: community centre, public library, Zhers, Home Hardware, Ming Dynasty, Edelweiss, Budd Park, Conestoga College, Doon Heritage Crossroads, and the new Waterloo Region Museum.
