On approach, strong angular elements and bold features push the envelope in style while linear roof design creates a truly unique silhouette. Inside, airy interiors bathed in sunlight blur the distinctions between indoors and out. Find function and informality in the seamless floor plan, and 21st century satisfaction at every turn. Rich granite floors welcome on entry; ahead, an inset window sets an immediate focal wall, disclosing a tremendously light-conscious design. In the kitchen, smooth blonde wood cabinetry takes on a bold accent in black granite countertops and stainless finishes. In juxtaposition, the eye-catching window out to rear yard hangs like a lush, leafy canvas melding indoors with outdoors. Nearby eat-in kitchen space leaves peninsula service a step away and outdoor views to two sides. Adjacent mudroom counter and storage space couldn't be more welcome – it's the perfect complement to the family's on-the-go lifestyle. With front entry hidden behind the mid-century splash of glass brickwork, the combined function and dramatic flair of the powder room leads to one conclusion – it's sharp space, plain and simple.
In the dining room, a built-in sideboard houses serving tableware; opposite, full-length windows overlook rear grounds for the year-round impression of alfresco dining. Nearby patio doors lead guests to the flagstone patio and lush foliage of a true hidden gem – fenced and private, a serene city-central retreat for family and fabulous entertaining space for frequent guests. Inside lies a hallmark of modernist design – space for two distinct living areas, with the wood-burning fireplace to one end and a verdant wall of windows to the other, focal points draw the eye in either direction. Enjoy light filled living space throughout the day with sunlight coming from the front during the day and rear in the afternoon.
Up the granite staircase, a two-storey window lights stairs and hallway – despite strong finishes, formidable windows at every turn leave the space saturated with light. In the master suite, a walkout patio door leaves a deck a definite possibility for the future; nearby a richly indulgent walk-in closet ensures well-appointed wardrobes are always within reach. Through a clever pocket door, the ensuite bathroom lies beyond. With obliging mirrors reflecting around the space and sink perched between windows, the walk-in glass shower and soaker tub take on an organic vibe – it couldn't be more agreeable. Nearby, two bedrooms serve the family fittingly and the main bathroom finds a pair of windows lighting morning rituals.
The basement family room houses the TV or home office with essential storage space behind closet doors. Close at hand, the indications of a clever murphy bed - perfect for overnight guests at a moment's notice.
