Houses on Black Maple Private embrace privacy in the most classic way; verdant sentinels greet arrivals and a stone walkway leads to the main entrance. Note the stunning visual impact defined by a hipped roof and the trio of varied masonry - each perfectly complementing the other for an exquisite linear effect. Rich brown window casings add the right touch of contrast to a prime example of modern architecture. It all comes together beautifully and sets the tone for what lies within.
Beyond entry, a sense of organic beauty seems to permeate through the very walls - nature has let itself in. A solid wood door opens into a naturally lit entrance hall - slate underfoot and soaring ceilings overhead. Luxurious touches such as oak floors beyond, wrought iron detail, and pot lights throughout collude for an elegant yet earthy feel. A smart floor plan is evident upon first steps inside - to the right, a formal living room shows a clean, rectilinear footprint highlighted by floor to ceiling windows and access to a perpetually sunlit front terrace. Decor aficionados will love this space for its seemingly endless design possibilities accompanied by a natural stone wall at one end. Whether it serves best as a home office or formal dining room, know that for every option, life's odds and ends are easily kept out of sight via custom built-ins. Hallway-bound, find convenient double closets and a well-appointed powder room poised to handle visitors' needs.
Beyond lies an exceptional open space where family life happens; an open kitchen, living and dining space yields room to cook, dine, lounge, and play. Even the amateur chef won't be able to stay out of the kitchen; stainless appliances including a Thermador induction cooktop, wine fridge, plenty of granite-topped counter-space and smart storage solutions make meal prep a rewarding experience. Antique-finished cupboards contrast with wrought iron pendant lights that highlight a super-functional island. There is no doubt that it's purpose can easily fluctuate between breakfast bar, after-school homework space, or cocktail central. The adjacent living and dining area is a fellow multi-tasker. An expansive corner window frames a perpetually calm backyard scene - nature makes a most stunning backdrop for cozy evenings by the fire or chic dinner parties. Marvel at how both can happen seamlessly under one roof, in one space. You'll appreciate the Control4 surround sound system - set the mood with the touch of a button. A lush backyard oasis extends the living area during summer months. Find two tiers of cedar deck escorted by stone for a stylish outdoor zone - enjoy al fresco dinners by the pergola or barbeque with neighbours, all ensconced by the privacy of nature's best. Highly functional, splendid foliage; this is a place where relaxing is not simply an option, but an inevitable reality.
Upstairs, home's straightforward design continues. The master bedroom yields a delightful design detail for the consummate organizer - a three quarter wall delineates a series of built-ins and plenty of closet space. Corner windows and tray ceilings add architectural interest to an already impressive room. Not to be outdone, the en-suite holds a few gems of its own; an extra long soaker tub and walk-in shower pair with his and hers sinks set in a marble vanity for effortless morning routines.
Two additional bedrooms are equally large and boast a repeat of the now-familiar and coveted corner window. Laundry on the second floor makes sense and keeps pragmatic needs met, while the main bathroom serves in style - rain shower and granite countertops yield just the right amount of indulgence.
The basement's clever two-car garage access means daily comings and goings are managed smoothly, while the younger members of your clan are sure to appreciate the three piece bathroom and expansive rec room. A basement layout this good easily seizes the opportunity for flexibility; a fourth bedroom and den combination makes for an equally compelling benefit.
