The Story

In the heart of family-friendly Forest Heights and backing onto Cedar Crest Park is 358 Driftwood Drive. This lovely family home is a short stroll to several great schools and has Forest Heights Trail access in every direction. Located less than 10 minutes from The Boardwalk, Downtown and quick highway access means the amenities of the city are at your fingertips. As soon as you enter this home you will be drawn to the airy, carpet-free living space. The front bay window ('16) looks out to the aged trees of Driftwood Drive and allows natural light to fill the living and adjoining dining room providing a perfect space to host some friends or have an evening with the family. Continuing through the home you will pass the convenient main floor powder room before reaching the eat-in kitchen with charming wraparound wainscotting. The kitchen also boasts plenty of storage, counter space and a picturesque view of your large, fully fenced backyard and the beautiful trees you share with Cedar Crest Park. Stepping out the sliding glass door off the kitchen you will see the large wraparound deck and pergola ('19) perfect for watching those summer sensets over the park. Taking the stairs to the second level you are greeted by another level beaming with natural light and 3 large bedrooms including a primary bedroom with a walk-in closet. The basement does feature a separate entrance from the side of the home for access and will bring you to the recently renovated basement ('17) where the cosy rec room awaits featuring a gas fireplace and a 3 piece bath. With an updated furnace, AC, attic insulation, electrical panel ('20), deck ('19), and several windows replaced in ('16) this is a turn-key option where you can focus on making this house your home. When envisioning a place where you can set roots, look no further than 358 Driftwood. Reach out today!
