The Kids Rooms
One of the brightest pops of colour in the home is in the two rooms set aside for “the girls”. There are two wonderful rooms that are connected thru wall cutouts . One for sleeping and one for playing.
Staying Alive “in the lower level
The 70’s vibe in the lower level make for a vibrant and fun family space
There’s plenty of additional room as only about half of the basement is finished. The finished part includes a bathroom and a great media room to kick back and watch the game or your favorite movie.
Whether you use the roller rink this is a great room for the kids to hang out or do a throw back party with a disco floor ( disco ball included)- just wear the bell bottoms and bring the music and do your best disco moves!
The Lower Level is partially above ground at the back of the home so the windows are big and bright. “It doesn’t feel like a basement,” says Collins.
