Homeowners Laureen and George Cole are the first to admit that they don’t need the size of home they purchased at Nottawasaga Station. “We bought a bigger house because we realize our family from Toronto will stay over. When we build it, they will come,” laughs Laureen.
The Coles chose the 2-storey, 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom Laurier floorplan, Elevation B (2,480 square feet) with an all brick exterior. It will be built on Lot 18, a 45’ pie shaped lot with a view of the pond and EcoPark, a huge selling point for the couple. When asked about other features they love, the list was extensive including high ceilings, expansive foyer and front hall area, large gourmet kitchen, generous master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet, main floor laundry and big, open basement.
In terms of finishes, other than upgrading to hardwood flooring in some areas, the couple felt the standard options worked well – occasionally adding their “own twist” like laying tile on the diagonal. And they are thrilled with the results. “Short of us building our own custom home, this meets all our expectations, wants and needs,” concludes Laureen.
