544 Dansbury is now For Sale. This home is loaded with extras!
The main floor
The main floor layout is a good mix of open concept with purpose built rooms.
Just off the front foyer you will find the stylish kitchen with sleek modern cabinetry, matching appliances including a built-in range hood microwave and a dining area in front of the large front window. The windows throughout the house, including the walkout basement, are extra large, letting in lots of natural light. The window have cellular shades which are not only private and fashionable but also extremely energy efficient.
Speaking of efficiency, the home’s heating and cooling systems are controlled by a new Nest Thermostat. “It programs itself so you don’t have to.”
The home has recently been painted a neutral taupe colour. There are new door casings and new 4 1/4 inch baseboards throughout. All of the doors are stained a natural wood finish The new carpet (2012) is the popular Frieze “Mohawk Fashion Knowledge” and was installed with an upgraded extra thick underpadding. The main floor’s Vintage Berkshire Oak hardwood floors and the ceramic tile was installed in 2011.
The master bedroom comes complete with an installed gas line for a future fireplace, a vaulted ceiling allowing for extra the large front bedroom windows and a walk-in closet with a high-end California Closet organizer.
The bathroom has a Jacuzzi soaker tub.
Also on the second floor are two good-sized bedrooms and a linen closet.
The home has stylish ceiling lighting and Decora switches and plate covers throughout.
Let’s go outside
Outside, the home has great curb appeal. There is parking for three cars on the extra long driveway. The garage comes with remote garage door opener.
Out back, off the main floor living room there is a 22 x 16 deck running along the span of the house and overlooking the lush carpet of grass and low maintenance landscaping contained within the fully fenced backyard. The yard is easily accessed by way of the walkout from the basement or through the garage or by the stairs leading down from the deck. There is a back gate as well for easy access to Kaufman Flats, Rim Park or University Avenue… Also on deck, there is a natural gas hookup to the BBQ so you will have no need to exchange propane tanks, or run out of gas just when you need it most.
River rock and flagstone are under the deck leading out of the basement walk out to backyard. It has a kind of zen feeling to it all. If you’re like me, I’m sure you could use a little quiet time here.
Finally, outside, last but not least, the roof was replaced in June 2014 and includes six feet of ice shield and has a transferable lifetime warranty
Just an 11-minute drive into Uptown Waterloo, 544 Dansbury also has easy access to the Conestoga Parkway to Kitchener and beyond.
FreshCo, Tim Hortons, a gas station, pharmacy and restaurants (including Mediterraneo) are all in the plaza at the corner of University and Bridge. Bechtel Park and Bechtel leash free dogpark is within an easy walking distance and a little further north you’ll find the Conestoga Mall and the Galaxy Cinemas.
Lexington is the #3 top rated school (actually tied for 2nd) in Waterloo (WRDSB). The whole neighbourhood of Eastbridge/Colonial Acres is rated way above average. Lester B Pearson and Millen Woods are the other two top rated schools in the public board. As parents or future parents you can give yourselves an A+ for choosing to raise your family or future family in this neighbourhood. Even if you don’t have a family, one of my 365 Rules about Real Estate is, “Always buy a house in a good school zone as they appreciate at a better than average rate”.
