Property for Sale

Passionate contemporary design and scaled for family living - this confident aesthetic delivers stunning living spaces, intelligently planned. Day to day, this home is full of functional features that easily handle "real life".

Natural stone in cool tones answer every guest, visitor and family member in sleek style. Textures are layered, hits of warm hues say 'welcome!' A low profile sidelight and transom drop hints as to what's inside. Sophistication, light, easy living. Is it possible? A freehold with plenty of space for a growing family but all the convenience and low-maintenance perks of a lock and leave condo?

Over the threshold it doesn't take long to realize that indeed, such a balance of style, ease and function can coexist beautifully. A tiered entry offers a seamless transition from outside to in while keeping comings and goings separate from the rest of home. Ceramic in cool tones pairs with a front hall closet, powder room and garage access to handle the elements and pragmatic needs.

Step up into the main living area and appreciate the cool hand of custom design that has shaped this space. Extra wide wide oak hardwood underfoot, sweeping windows frame a picturesque back garden, on-point light fixtures delineate living zones and high ceilings top this open concept layout to perfection. The result is a great balance between flow and privacy.

Start with the kitchen - sure to be a chef's dream and a host's greatest pleasure. With its centre waterfall island and large double sink, there's nothing this space can't handle. Guests hang out while you cook, kids finish up homework during that post-school golden hour; it's truly the social hub of home. Coupled with great names like JennAir and Bosch, executed by Deslaurier Custom Kitchens, the benefits are many. Cabinets are sleek with a lacquered finish and soft close. Store locally made goodies from nearby favourites on the aptly placed open shelving or in the large pull out pantry and ample drawer storage. Hardware is light, subtle.

The open living and dining space is smartly delineated via the coffered ceiling - refined architectural details like this can be found throughout, lending subtle elegance to every occasion. Fit for lounging, playing, hosting a chic dinner soiree - a cozy gas fireplace sets the scene for magazine-worthy get togethers. Softening the contemporary vibe is a mantle made of reclaimed wood: a perfect backdrop for this stylish home. During summer months, life extends outside. Fully landscaped with planters and interlock brick, beautifully shaded by age-old trees - your urban oasis awaits. Playdates and barbecues happen all in the same outdoor zone, thanks to your natural gas barbecue hookup.

Back inside, climb the open riser stairs to discover this home's upstairs rooms, noticing the slick glass and solid wood banister combination on your way up. The sanctuary-styled master suite shines with windows at every turn and sitting room space for a peaceful refuge. Two closets - one a large walk-in - keeps the space clutter-free. A stunning contemporary ensuite takes cues straight from a Scandinavian luxury hotel: soft dove-grey ceramic contrasts a sculptural soaker tub and textured wall-tile. A heated towel rack is poised for use beside a large walk-in shower. A double vanity with vessel sinks and chrome accents rounds out this luxe space - heated floors keep it toasty.

Three other bedrooms on this floor abound with style and function. A guest room with balcony is set to pamper visitors or an older child. Another bedroom features a frosted glass door - perfect for conversion to an office. The main bathroom continues the theme of understated luxury with a soft grey palette, textured wall tile and chrome hardware. Additional storage and a clerestory window make this zone a great spot to start the day. Second floor laundry with additional storage and folding counter space proves advantageous on the regular.

Make your way down to the basement and be wowed - 9 foot ceilings, pot lights, and oversized windows yield a casual rec area that would serve well as a playroom, guest or in-law suite, or even a home-based business. Separate access at the top of the stairs makes it a highly autonomous feature, as does the beautifully kitted three piece bath.

Family sized homes with this calibre of up to date design intelligence are a rare find. Completely hard wired with a central connection and closed system for solid wifi access throughout, as well as integrated speakers - this home acquiesces to every 21st century need. A prime location only minutes from the best schools, the sweet delights of local shops and restaurants of Beechwood village, steps from transit, downtown. Take advantage of the bike paths and parks at your doorstep and say goodbye to a long, dreary commute, the hustle of day to day. Serenity lives here - so can you. Make an appointment today.
