Property for Sale

An impeccably well-maintained home on a large lot. There is no family situation this home cannot handle. It offers a traditional centre-hall layout with a twist – there is a completely separate yet integrated dwelling with exceptional opportunities. Potential for a home based business, home office, Airbnb location, additional lodgings for independent family members, in-laws, or a live-in nanny.

There are original details like solid wood doors and hardware, arched entryways, cove moulding and oak millwork. Charming features blend with high end upgrades and smart design details throughout. Find private, adult-centric spaces balanced with an open, congenial flow.

To the right, a living room and sitting room combination make for dignified formal entertaining. The bright bow window offers plenty of natural light, while coffered ceilings in the latter part of this open space delineate a more intimate vibe. Whether it serves as a music room or personal library, occupants will love this room.

Across the main hall, an open dining room and kitchen proffer an ideal spot for entertaining. With bright windows all around, conversation and boisterous parties easily flow into the kitchen. A sprawling center island features plenty of room for casual bar-top dining, handy second sink, but most importantly: a Dacor gas range with grill. Drawer storage with custom cabinetry is smart, as is the Fisher & Paykel combo of double drawer fridge and dishwasher. A shallow pantry makes sense for smart storage and access to the back yard makes barbecuing a breeze. Heated ceramic underfoot keeps it cozy.

A back hall leads to the centre hall with ingeniously tucked away powder room, closet and built-in shelving. Take this avenue to the sunken family room which has great natual light and plenty of windows, and left open to the kitchen so as to always be part of the action. A wood burning fireplace features marble surround and a great cold-weather feature: a firewood trap door directly from the garage so there's no need to go outside to replenish the wood.

Patio doors lead to a jaw-dropping outdoor oasis. So much curated space so close to the downtown core is almost unheard of. With a shady seating area, a refined pergola and plenty of open space, this is where summer life happens. The salt water pool is joined by an oversize jacuzzi via a flowing water feature, and is surrounded by lush annuals, perennials - you are miles away, and so are your worries. Back inside, the main hall leads to a side entrance with garage and backyard access - the doormat carpeting is perfect for pets and Canada's four seasons.

Upstairs, 4 bedrooms are bright, charming, and offer picturesque views. One boasts its own updated ensuite, complete with a walk-in shower and smart shelving. Another features distinguished coffered ceilings with great potential for a home office space, while the third includes a wash basin and great proportions. A personality filled main bathroom serves the two bedrooms. Laundry can also be found on this level.

Custom built-ins resulting in an intelligent integrated walk-in closet and headboard keep the master suite zen and clutter-free. Custom tile work - heated, of course - and a glass-topped double vanity in white and turquoise hues give the ensuite a spa-like feel. The steam shower and soaker tub make relaxation a reality.

In the basement - a bedroom, full bathroom and kitchenette pleases independent children, and beyond, find a large and bright rec room with a Napoleon Franklin-style fireplace. There are endless opportunities for use. Comfortable cork floors continue down the hall to find an infrared sauna, a second living room or recreation zone and a three piece bathroom finished in modern white tile. A set of stairs takes you to the second wing - a landing on the stairs offers separate entry as well as the main hall entrance to this second dwelling. How convenient for easy to an easy to manage rental property, home based business or Airbnb. A kitchen and two living rooms are found on the first floor, while the second offers up two bedrooms and a full bath.

What an incredible opportunity to live so close to downtown yet enjoy the stunning views and leisurely vibe of cottage country. With amenities like grocery, pharmacy and schools nearby, plus paths and parks at your fingertips, this home is a rare opportunity to enjoy everything the city has to offer. Don't wait - see it today!
