Renovated 5 Bedroom Ranch Bungalow in the Heart of the Beach

This 5 bedroom, 2 bath home is centrally located on Melrose Avenue, a quiet, tree-lined neighbourhood off of Sunnidale Road, within walking distance to Wasaga’s family-oriented beaches. This home has been recently renovated up, down, inside and out, and is a pleasure to show. Those who love to relax on a covered front porch and enjoy a family-friendly layout with 3 bedrooms on the main floor should put this one on the top of their homes-to-consider list.

On the main floor, there are three spacious bedrooms and an updated 4-piece bathroom. The open concept living/dining area sets a welcoming tone for the whole home, with its updated lighting, hardwood flooring and gas fireplace. The kitchen is just the right size, with plenty of cabinets, an eat-in breakfast area, a granite sink, and lovely light from large windows.

The professionally finished basement features a multi-zone family room, 2 bedrooms perfect for guests, in-laws or kids, and a completely renovated 4-piece bathroom with soaker tub. The laundry area is spacious and is adjacent to a utility area that offers more storage space.

Be sure to read through all of the upgrades to the exterior and interior in the feature lists below.
