The early 20th century brought gorgeous trees and a modest home to the lot, but the story didn't end there. Over the years, updates and expansion have culminated in a home where the curbside impression of the deep, saturated colours of rich brick and facade pique the curiosity. Against a backdrop of foliage, it's at once rustic and bold – a truly one-of-a-kind family homestead.
Inside, a French door on the large, naturally-lit entryway keeps privacy within and drafts out. Beyond, the potlit family room and informal dining space sees it all – a place to gather, dine, live life. Patio doors grant access to the distinguished wrap-around porch – one of the home's hallmarks, find summer evenings call for a porch-side chat overlooking Lindenlea Park. Schedule an annual tradition – watch horse-drawn carriages pass each Christmas day for a charming dose of nostalgia.
With living space open to the kitchen, the height of family function lies where spaces intersect; a peninsula ensures kitchen goings-on are very much a part of the action. The kitchen's function emerges where multiple work surfaces yield good movement and room for culinary collaboration. Pots and pans drawers, an appliance garage, and finishes of granite and white – today's must-haves – relay a functional, pleasing result.
The home's spatial flow makes good sense – with distinct rooms open one to the next, find the combination of partitioned but connected spaces suits family living so well. Each resident has space to breathe, live and entertain. The dining room lies adjacent, window-lit and kitchen-accessible with room to entertain a crowd. Beyond, the living room's gas fireplace plays perfect cohort to the pair of box windows – warmth, natural light, architectural interest – the room brings it all. The well-proportioned mantle provides balance to the windows, which serve as focal point for greenhouse, display area, or window seat as dynamics change. Nearby yard access highlights the home's pride and joy – a mix of sun and shade comes courtesy of mature trees; landscaping, stone features, an apple blossom tree and deck usher texture and colour into the yard. Home bears a distinctly bucolic feel, disappearing into nature with the seasonal shift.
Upstairs, the convenient stair-top main bathroom serves three bedrooms and the main floor in style. Each of the four bedrooms boasts distinctive, family-pleasing features that set the rooms apart – a spacious, loft-style hideaway up a spiral staircase leaves teen dreams coming true; retractable stairs answer the practical need for furniture placement. A second ample bedroom with private balcony access appeals to the nature-lover; fashionistas applaud the third bedroom's mirrored walk-in closet. The master suite's cathedral ceilings and demi-lune accent window overlooking the park produce a spacious, airy vibe. The room's main space can remain easygoing and serene thanks to the function enclosed behind walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom doors. Nearby, the home office echoes the master's cathedral ceilings, with distinctive geometric windows playing off the ceiling shape to perfection. With workspace this good, productivity gets no better.
In the basement, a family room, full bathroom, laundry and storage room provide a family's best friend – functional space that stores gear, hides 'stuff', and lends flexibility.
The basement's moisture prevention system eases the practical mind, and parking for two banishes car concerns. 'Accessible' doesn't do it justice – with notable schools at every turn, Beechwood Village down the street, and a vital, family-friendly neighbourhood waiting, find a truly wonderful place to call home. Don't wait!
