If you are looking to purchase your first home you really want to visit this multi-level condo which has a modern design flare throughout. The kitchen has a large side window which allows the natural light to shine in. The dining room has gleaming hardwood floors and is located just off the kitchen which makes for easy entertaining with family and friends. This condo has a large master bedroom which is a rare find!  The other two bedrooms are a perfect size. The lower level has a fully finished den. Amazing parking right at the door plus no rear neighbours plus decked backyard which backs onto an open space.
