“Our children have really grown up over the past 10 years in this great home for an active family like ours. It has spaces large enough to gather and spend quality time together, but room for everyone to have their quiet time and privacy. What was once a garage and is now a recreation space is quite unique and has been perfect for our family. We love to have our friends over and they love it too because it’s so easy to gather, play pool, have some drinks, enjoy some food — all in an open indoor/outdoor space — while the kids have their own space within earshot upstairs. The many large parties and barbecues with friends will always be remembered fondly. I just hope that the next family can benefit from similar experiences.” Monique Rabideau, Current Homeowner of 44 Beardmore Cresent
