Let your eyes wander up the landscaped front lawn - perennials and flagstone stairs create a welcoming entrance and bring the stately facade into view. Full brick and contrasting stone form visual symmetry around multi-paned casement windows, and curved roofs over equidistant bay windows bring out the focal point - a circular portico entrance that leaves guests in great anticipation for what's to come. Smart design leaves the two car garage at street level, cars are concealed in an utterly practical place.

Wrought iron details grace the front door and lead into a bright and understated vestibule - an extra wide french door takes the chill out of winter entrances. Within, a beautiful blend of traditional style and family practicality result in elite but unselfconscious spaces.

Home's flow is crafted to evoke an ease of living; from the timeless oak floors, high ceilings, extra wide hallway and intricate plaster moulding and millwork - it's distinguished details all around. To the left, pass a perfectly placed powder room and enter the living room through a wide doorway - a gas fireplace with marble surround is anchored by windows on either side, while the bay window is a stately source of natural light and the ever-pleasant verdant street view beyond. With such a generous space, it's easy to see how high-scale entertaining and boisterous family nights easily have a place under one roof. Off the living room, a main floor laundry room is discrete and convenient - granite countertops, oodles of storage, and a second powder room prove invaluable. Down the hall, a guest bedroom features double closets, a leafy green view and it's own sprawling three piece ensuite, with heated floors of course. Nothing but the best for those who matter most in this home. Step easily into productive days ahead in the grand-scaled office - a bank of windows overlooks the backyard - mature trees bring on the benefits of forest bathing while you get to the task at hand. Built-ins keep organization top of mind. The dining room opposite offers hosting opportunities like no other. There is something to be said for the charm and elegance of a formal dining room, and this one leaves nothing to be desired; artistic plaster work is repeated for great continuity, the wrought iron chandelier creating a beautiful focal point in a chic locale - dinner parties are elevated before appetizers are even on the table. Ingenious planning accesses the kitchen via the dining room and main hall. The celebrity-chef grade features will wow even the most amateur cook: from the obvious benefits like a double wall oven, Sub-Zero fridge, granite countertops and rich cabinetry, to the finer points like the custom waterfall countertop edge, cooking is a delight here. Wash up at the stainless apron sink - as chic as it is practical - and handle family comings and goings at the spacious eat-in area. An epic bar island invites sociable happenings, all framed by well-placed windows featuring a seasonal tableau of mother nature's best. Summer months see the patio used in excess - access the surrounding yard with its towering mature trees - it's timeless, private, and a perfect canvass for an outdoor oasis.

Upstairs a traditional aesthetic introduces private family space with a stunning open to above stairwell. A wide hall accesses three children's bedrooms - each generously scaled with ample light and closet space. The main bath serves two bedrooms with aplomb, as the third bedroom boasts a three piece ensuite - perfect for an autonomous teen. At either end of the hall, a master suite and guest suite show exceptional practicality. The guest suite, with its large footprint and four piece ensuite that features a bright skylight - could find use as a nanny suite thanks to its access to one of the bedrooms. Kids clutter is banished behind a half-wall that conceals a convenient play area - it's bright and roomy, but hidden from view. Masterful details marry practicality and style in the master suite; built-ins keep clutter at bay, and a tray ceiling featuring a wrought iron chandelier adds visual interest to an uber-functional space. Heated ceramic floors in the ensuite define a perfect spa retreat; a soaker tub and walk-in shower collude with Corian countertops for ever-pleasing details.

Notice the fine details of continuous design; wrought iron and solid oak banister take you to the basement; a space that is ripe for personalization. A great design feature that's already been thought of? The glass wall insert between the rec room and a potentially legendary wine cellar. A third room and three piece bathroom are poised for adding super private sleeping quarters, and there is additional storage galore. There is no need to balance space and style - this home has both in spades.

Quality in this home is unquestionable; noticed in details like the superior mouldings, wrought iron accents and luxe hardware. An address that pays in dividends with proximity to schools, NCC parkland local soccer fields, footpaths and minutes to downtown, fine homes with this level of taste are exceedingly rare. Don't wait - make an appointment today!
