The traditional facade and centre hall plan situate the home in the early 20th century, but one quick peek inside concludes the space hasn't remained in the past. While impressions of historical character make some appearances, enter a home redesigned and updated with quality craftsmanship, savvy design, and sleek, modern finishing to carry it forward well into the future.
A pair of windows flank the door, welcoming guests upon entry and beyond. The visual anchor of a black railing is poised amid the bright, airy finishing of white millwork. Kitchen and dining rooms find five-star collaboration to the left – the sleek, gleaming custom cabinetry and immaculate quartz countertops get an injection of natural texture from the grey veining of an on-trend subway backsplash. Working at the deep double island sink, find that windows to front and rear light the space naturally. There's room to dine at the island, or nearby at the dining room table under a stroke of contrast from the industrial chic chandelier.
Across the hall, deep-silled windows and cove crown moulding lines the living room, with a central wood-burning fireplace claiming prime vantage. Find opportunities for either one or two conversation groupings under the sophisticated warmth of pot lighting. Down the central hall steps, storage cupboards, a secondary fridge, and rear access come together to form the quintessential mudroom – intelligent design built for kids, pets, rainy days, and grocery provisioning, but bearing the same hallmarks of clean, sleek design. Outside, the wrap-around deck, constructed with utter privacy in mind, creates an urban oasis and super-usable summer living space. White western cedar fencing surrounds the yard; a corner water feature provides ambience and tranquility. With deck lighting and a truly serene setting, evenings in the city start here. Practical needs are also met – shed and hidden garbage and wood storage save the day.
Upstairs, the master bedroom's clever mirrored closets give the illusion of extended space, while the ensuite bathroom's glass shower walls recede and glossy grey vanity drawers reflect light back into the space for a crisp, high-impact finish. The main bathroom's subway tiling and quartz-clad rectangular sink give a geometric impression where sleek, laid-back relaxation is the order of the day. Two bedrooms sit at the ready to house family, guests, or a handsome home office.
The basement family room sits as a testament to everything a dry, full-height space affords – neighbours will marvel at such a complete, exceptional package. Natural brick texture shines through its bright finish; pot lighting illuminates the room. With a full bathroom lending so much function to the space, know the value of a third level of living space is tremendous.
