The ambiance of country-lane living renders thoughts of the city superfluous as you drive through forest and placid scenery of Cedarhill to arrive at your destination - 8 Cedarhill Drive. Nature's wonderland rolls throughout one-acre estate lots surrounding a five star golf and country club. It's as if the best of a gated community and luxury cottage living have teamed up to form the ultimate escape … but you get to call it home. »cont'd
The city's most prized and coveted green space is home's domain; where traditional design is rivaled only by a stunningly verdant panorama. Beyond the visitor-friendly driveway and landscaped front yard, understated elegance takes shape in the form of a central doorway flanked by simple sconces. The clean lines of a hip rooftop complement a classic Tudor facade - a picturesque woodscape acts as both a visual frame and privacy screen.
Inside is no different. Home's surroundings inform design details carried throughout: a sweeping central staircase richly combines walnut, oak and wrought iron to spectacular effect. Guests appreciate the refined tone set by oversized marble underfoot and a sweeping two storey entry.
Nature's charm is equally infused into the design details of the nearby living room - centered by a wood burning fireplace and underscored by lattice hardwood flooring made up of oak and walnut, it's almost as good as the view outside. A picturesque pond takes the place of a conventional neighbour and makes for a fabulous backdrop to pre-dinner drinks or an evening digestif.
On the other side of the entryway a trifecta of entertaining-ready rooms await. It starts with the dining room - affluent touches like mahogany french doors and an Italian crystal chandelier are juxtaposed with pure beauty of the outdoors. With these surroundings, dinner conversation easily takes on a life of its own. A secondary set of french doors perform the elegant task of taking eyes off the kitchen or facilitating the inevitable; a gravitational pull towards the stunning great room. Who can resist the cottage-like ambience of extra high ceilings; space-expanding windows and an imposing stone-encased fireplace? Summer months offer up the opportunity to open the patio doors and allow guests to spill out onto the terrace and enjoy a star-filled sky, unencumbered by city lights. Make sure to take a walk around the property - backing onto the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club, lush surroundings offer privacy in the summertime and a promising gateway to some epic cross-country ski adventures during winter months.
To round out the trio; home's core beckons. When it comes to family time, the expansive footprint leaves plenty of room for culinary projects for everyone - take advantage of endless counter space for magic baking moments with little ones, or adjust the pendant lighting above the long peninsula to accommodate homework headquarters. No matter the use; this space was made for the 21st century family. Ceiling-reaching cabinetry keeps tools of the trade out of sight, while wall to wall windows ensure the stunning view is always front and centre - even while washing up. Patio access, laundry, and an enviable pantry nearby make the pragmatic tasks of daily life a breeze.
Beyond the kitchen lies a hallway full of practicalities; a recently renovated powder room serves guests with aplomb, while a home office meets the demands of any professional. Find also garage access and secondary access to the living room, a reminder that just like its outdoor surroundings, home has a natural flow.
Upstairs, four bedrooms surround the central staircase. Double doors open onto a master suite grounded by serenity - it permeates via corner windows proffering seasonal beauty year round. A walk-in closet precedes the custom-finished ensuite where a freestanding tub sets a luxurious tone. Rich finishings like granite his and hers sinks, a glass walk-in shower and bidet complete the spa-like space.
The remaining three bedrooms are well-served with breathtaking views, large closets and a main bathroom that is indulgent as it is functional. A close repeat of the master ensuite with the added benefit of a skylight exudes subtle sophistication.
Below, the basement is a fine use of space. The modern family benefits from a nanny or in-law suite that is fully equipped with a newly renovated three piece bathroom. A finished rec room is ready for any number of possible uses, while storage and a workspace handle your clan's gear.
The opportunity to grow a family in a rural estate setting is a captivating prospect; Queensway proximity keeps amenities and the city centre within a 20 minute ride, while the community offers up the elusive balance of privacy in an active and engaging neighbourhood. A totally achievable, yet exclusive lifestyle - make it yours.
