Lindenlea's towering Acacia trees didn't pop up overnight; they represent years of growth, time-honoured and much loved, much like the neighbourhood itself – a community where spirit, proximity to family necessities, and pride of place make it a treasured, exceptional destination. The home's "Tudor Modern" facade pays the architectural style high regard, but does it in an updated 21st century way. The roof's steep pitch steers the eye toward entry, enticing guests upon arrival. Hard landscaping frames the walkway and retaining walls provide a clear path towards the garage. »cont'd
Inside, an initial glance readily concludes – vast, flowing space, functional updates for families on the move, refined tastefulness that pleases a sophisticated palette. In the foyer, with slate tile underfoot, an antique stained glass closet door sits as one-of-a-kind as they come – an instant conversation point that sets the tone and leaves guests wanting more.
To the right, the living room's dimensions prove to be a welcome surprise – get used to it – well-proportioned rooms, a neighbourhood asset, couldn't be better suited for eclectic family needs and large-scale entertaining. An open gas fireplace lies front and centre, side windows flanking the hearth, a front bay window amplifying natural light. Pot lighting starts where sunlight sets – an elegant impression on the art collection. Throughout the main floor, pocket french doors thoughtfully enclose spaces for the utmost flexibility and latitude. The dining room's footprint can seat a crowd – windows and potlighting leave bright, open comfort and understated grace the themes.
The kitchen poses a powerful challenge – if space is required to transform a meal into a culinary experience, five-star dining is imminent. High-end sous chefs like Miele collude with eye-pleasers like custom cabinetry, weighty maple breakfast bar, and granite to produce a cook-friendly haven. Designed with weekday family dinner in mind, find no impractical lavishness, but rather intelligent, daily living design – a wide eat-in area, great lighting and custom storage, and enough space to have the kids within eyesight while dinner's on the stove. Patio doors to the deck and fenced yard grant parents peace of mind and year-round freedom for young ones. In warmer months, a tiered deck and surrounding perennial beds afford an outdoor utopia in an urban milieu.
The powder room and vessel sink lie in the hallway; nearby, side door yard access and built-in bench and coat hooks suggest a utilitarian mudroom vibe – a great landing pad for pets and kids. Off the foyer, the built-ins and front vantage of the library/den embody the ultimate home office, where comings and goings keep the lucky worker relevant and door-close.
Upstairs, three well-sized bedrooms plus master suite, maintain the home's focus on scale, leaving each room proportioned to give family members ample dominion of their own. The main bathroom lies between them. Find the height of time-conscious convenience within – the bathroom's enclosed laundry and folding station make light a heavy burden. The master suite's ensuite allows a moment of indulgence, the glow of an angular soaker tub, on-trend glass shower, and his and hers granite sinks softening under dimmers. The room's closets leave indecision in the air – three closets and a walk-in must be divided fairly. One thing's for certain – there's plenty of space to go around.
The basement allots an abundance of super-usable and flexible living space – hard-wearing linoleum leaves the sky as the limit; clever window panels brighten and lift space upward. With custom finishing, family room, gym, built-in bar for adults or craft zone for kids, ample storage and 2x tandem garage access, this subterranean space has accounted for everything.
Lindenlea doesn't get better for families in which high-calibre education, sense of community, and kid-friendly fun are of highest priority.
