Description

Telkwa is an efficiently designed bungalow with a lot of space to offer within a small footprint. The warmth of wood is carried from the exterior to the interior, with its exterior wood siding and cedar shingles leading to interior wood members throughout the house.

As you enter the house, you are immediately greeted with the wood staircase leading upstairs, the mud room to the right, and the living room to the left. Tile is specified for the entrance and the utilitarian spaces, where the mud room, laundry and toilet rooms are located. Wood floors lead you to the living, kitchen and dining rooms. The living room is a cozy space with a central fireplace and a window seat for enjoying the sun. The spacious kitchen offers a center island with counter seating, and an L–shaped counter space with a small built–in bench near the window. Windows in the kitchen and dining areas provide views to the backyard pergola. In the dining area, there's a built–in bench and built–in cabinets to store extra dishware.

The upper level has a flexible floor plan which works well for growing families. The master bedroom offers a walk–in closet, spacious master bath, and a bonus storage room. The second bedroom is extra large, and can be easily divided by adding a center wall to create two smaller bedrooms. There is also an extra nook which can be used as an office or play area. The curved handrail in the hallway creates a small opening to view those on the ground floor.

The basement has another bedroom and full bath, which may be used for guests. There is also a spacious recreation room, which could also be a media room, as well as a storage room and utility room.
