Property for Sale

Neighbours share a similar philosophy – a love of the great outdoors, where trees were planted with future generations in mind, and a love for a flawlessly planned and executed community within the greenbelt that lies only minutes from amenities. Estates were constructed with a family's needs at heart, and families have come together over the years to socialize, celebrate, and embrace a wonderfully family-oriented place to call home.

Impressions commence on Spring Cress Drive, where a long walkway between coach-lit pillars and under mature trees leads to the modern neutrals of a full-brick façade and sharp, undeniable drama of double doors paired with mullioned demi-lune windows. An estate in every sense, find garage entry off the cul-de-sac where secondary coach lights illuminate the two plus one-car garages. The result is a more familiar, informal entry, but the initial taste lingers – guests are left wanting more. The interior answers in spades, with a wide entryway over marble floors leaving guests entering in classic style.

With a dramatic central oak staircase and solid oak millwork throughout, the home's exceptional scale becomes more evident – find smart living space at each turn. To the left, the formal living room is shaped to encourage conversation groupings; furniture placement comes naturally. A light, modern gas fireplace is chic, drawing a crowd with warmth and intimacy. Beyond, French doors open to the formal dining room – formal spaces remain guest-centric – perfection flourishes. Beyond, the kitchen boasts world-class tools of the trade – Sub-Zero fridge, Bertazzoni gas range, wine fridge, microwave drawer – there are no better helpers than these. Clean lines on pickled oak cabinetry coupled with quartz and mosaic tile round out a flawless kitchen philosophy – combine abundant storage and workspace with peerless equipment for exquisite meals and informal hangouts.

Beyond the eat-in area, the three-season room's slate tile, barbeque and wood fireplace make outdoor living so manageable – it's at once rustic, comfortable, and convenient. It's the cottage in a nutshell – live the experience at home. Beyond on flagstone, a flawless wrought iron-enclosed salt water pool leaves safety at its highest and worry-free enjoyment inevitable; with plentiful manicured green space, luxurious natural beauty, and an oppotunity to dine, relax, play and swim, summer days have never looked brighter.

The family room's wood fireplace and adjacent sunroom seek out all family gatherings – fun memories welcome. Down the hall, a mudroom and garage entry and secondary staircase access to both lower and upper levels are mind-bending – the convenience is unfathomable. Adjacent laundry, with marble floors and stainless steel countertops, make laundry pure class. The hallway leads around to a large powder room and handsome main floor office or den for a well-rounded work-from-home experience.

Upstairs, the main landing offers upper deck access overlooking the pool and five bedrooms make up the level. In the master suite, a private sitting room balcony beyond the room's massive floor plan is one-of-a-kind. In the ensuite bathroom, a chic free-standing soaker tub takes advantage of natural light while quartz, marble and cheeky his and hers vanities form a relaxing space. Back in the hall, the main bathroom's large frosted shower and his and hers sinks are shared by three bedrooms – each with windows, floor and closet space as good as the last. The fifth bedroom, perfect as a guest or nanny suite, benefits from pool views, an ensuite bathroom and secluded, rear stairway hall access.

Below, beyond the basement's spanning open floor space lies a combination of regular and cold storage, a second rec room, bathroom and bedroom – immense possibility, flexible space, and more than you ever dreamed. A tour produces the certainty that the estate is one-of-a-kind. Nowhere else does the ease of country estate ownership within the city feel as achievable; nowhere else does entertaining a crowd of one hundred or hanging out with the family happen so effortlessly. The community's natural beauty, the neighbourhood's sense of belonging, a home's incredible ability to answer all demands – book your appointment!
