Property for Sale

Corner lots are enviable in any neighbourhood, but here, the appeal escalates tenfold. Manicured hedges and mature trees are timeless adornments and offer discretion. From the street, refinement rules and nothing distracts. Cars are concealed in a side carport beyond a circular driveway. A handsome entrance colludes with understated landscaping, a complement to the subtle Tudor Revival architecture found in the facade. Stucco and brick, punctuated by mullioned windows and topped with gabled rooflines lays the groundwork for exceptional features within.

Beyond the original solid wood door, a warm and welcoming entry hall draws you in, and classic aristocratic style makes you want to stay. Clear sightlines to the rear where home's newest addition lies reinforces appreciation for a flawless vintage home. Turn of the century cordiality is crafted into every detail; from the timeless oak stairway, to the tall baseboards and plaster cove ceilings. To the left, a den or home office invites productive sessions with multiple windows and an opportune location away from the action. Across the hall, a formal living room encourages communal endeavours. A stunning gas hearth is flanked by natural granite, custom cherry cabinetry conceals clutter. Find a space at ease with elegance but totally liveable. Smart hallway storage and a first floor full bathroom make a great functional pair. Fresh wainscotting, a pedestal sink and art-deco inspired tilework in the bathroom impress. Confidently embracing postmodern design is the open kitchen and dining room. Effortlessly blending with home's original early 20th century heritage, elements like the oak-accented coffered ceiling and millwork are visual crowd pleasers. In a word, it's sharp. Side entrance access from the driveway in the form of a contained ceramic-tiled vestibule makes sense for family comings and goings. Character and conviviality sum up a first-class kitchen. Ceiling reaching custom cabinetry is flush mounted and finished in an on-point teal tone, adding major panache to every culinary endeavour. Drawer storage, quartz-topped centre island and countertops collude with professional-grade Bluestar range and stove to please the avid chef. And there's plenty of room for little helping hands. Modern updates like new windows throughout include a bank of South facing windows which promise sunshine all day long. Follow them from the perfect eat-in zone to wrap all the way around an elegant dining room. Optimal orientation and great flow make entertaining a breeze. Access to a sprawling covered cedar deck with hot tub extends the space outside: summer party success. Here's where home's corner vantage truly shines. With space for grand entertainment and green space galore, kids and parents are happy. Play soccer and baseball after school, host an alfresco reception - both come to fruition without complication. Back inside, elusive family time becomes more frequent with help from the adjacent family room. Warm and cozy, it's a consummate spot for game night or quiet conversations. Make your way upstairs and on the way, take note of the solid oak stairs, mission style newel post and landing window - as practical as they are pleasant, these are the details that bring home to life.

Sleeping quarters on the second floor yield ample layouts, while hardwood underfoot and leafy green views leave occupants of two bedrooms and the master suite enormously content. The bright and spacious main bath manages bustling mornings. Second floor laundry handles pragmatic needs well - a hanging rod, folding counter and plenty of storage make the task at hand painless. With a preamble from a sweet sitting room or personal library, find the master suite behind french doors. Stunning loft ceilings and verdant garden views exude a sense of comfort, intimacy, and calm. Custom cherry cabinets keep your haven clutter free - no need for a walk-in here. The ensuite beckons beyond french doors. Long double vanity, walk-in shower and dual jacuzzi soaker tub steal the spotlight, but details inspire too: pot lights and a dedicated makeup counter prove fruitful.

Not to be missed: Two third floor bedrooms full of charm and oodles of potential for private family or guest space. Architecturally interesting, comfortable beyond belief, ideal for playtime, and accompanied by a full bath on this level, this deliciously cloistered sanctuary will see a lot of use.

On the way to the basement, a second side entrance is found. Opportunity for customization abounds, and an intelligently finished rec room grants an ideal place for play, home gym and leisure time.

When life calls, no destination is too far. A central address that is walking close to the city's best schools and parks, minutes to downtown and surrounded by a vibrant neighbourhood - what more could you ask for? Make an appointment and see it today!
