This stunning all brick home has a Mid Century Modern and Prairie influence is conveniently located mere blocks to train, parks, schools, Prairie Path, restaurants, shops and all the vibrant downtown has to offer.

The kitchen is spacious featuring under cabinet lighting, walk-in pantry, Subzero fridge, stainless steel appliances, island, miles of counter space and an office to keep you organized. The kitchen is open to the dining area and family room. A massive fireplace with a magnificent brick pattern anchors the room along with custom bookcases. The first floor has a bedroom with ensuite full bath, which could be a playroom or office, a spacious mudroom with lockers and sink. The second floor features three spacious bedrooms plus a magnificent master suite. The master suite has two walk in closets.
