Property for Sale

Found in a neighbourhood highly alluring to families - top schools, and the local library are right across the street - home is the epitome of satisfying living. Age old trees and a sprawling yard are the start of an amicable family experience. An interwar cottage that has been expanded greets beyond a long driveway - along with a circular driveway and garage at the back, first impressions and parking woes are handled in one stylish swoop.

Within, the bright and large vestibule welcomes, offering a glimpse of home which offers smart updates alongside touches that are a nod to a colourful heritage. With an everyday-appropriate layout that yields an entertaining hub and year-round comfort, there are features that offer some major wow factor.

Find the first in the open living and dining room. Commanding the space, a dramatic turn of the century mantle was sourced from a railway gentleman's club in Montreal to grace every conversation and social encounter in this locale. Bay windows at one end add a sense of event, offering a glamorous yet totally comfortable venue in which to dine, socialize, and create cherished memories. On the other side of the hall, a personal library framed by windows sees infinite use as a homework station or home office - sun pouring in hits rich tones in the solid wood built-ins just so. Access the kitchen via French doors, the main hall, or the dining room - home is both super functional and refined. Mexican sun-dried tile grounds the kitchen which offers plenty of storage and working space. Cold-storage and glass cabinetry is invaluable for storing both precious items and everyday necessities within reach.

Beyond the kitchen, pass a convenient powder room and step down into the intimate family room which is an absolute crowd-pleaser. Where Rockcliffe meets Montebello, an octagonal room with conical ceiling is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, accented by oak and a grand wood fireplace. Picture it; a blanket of fresh snow, the roaring fireplace as backdrop and boisterous laughter filling the room. Family time has never been this good. During warmer months, patio access leads to a verdant and abundantly private oasis beyond. With picturesque pockets for outdoor living and playing, a barbecue spot and kidney shaped pool, summers are spent as they should be. Serenity surrounds, an annex with garage and loft space is a beneficial addition - relish country cottage pleasures in the heart of the city.

Back inside, the second level boasts high ceilings and bright, natural light for all occupants. Three bedrooms make up this level, a skylight in the main four piece bath offers the best wakeup call on the daily; a beautiful shot of Vitamin D. Two bedrooms keep occupants pleased with sunny views, while a nearby landing does double duty as reading nook or play area.

The master suite's bay window maximizes natural light and sits opposite wall to wall closet space. That, plus a dressing room keeps this zone clutter free and utterly cozy. Don't be shocked at the lack of ensuite, here's where home's out of the box design shows off; water closet, sink, and shower are cleverly concealed beyond separate reclaimed wood doors. The result? Seamless mornings where nobody is jostling for space.

At first glance, the basement proves utilitarian, flexible. Well-appreciated storage and laundry round out a highly functional space. Before you check off the three piece bathroom as another family benefit, look closer. As if from a fairy tale, the bathroom wall opens up to a second basement zone. You're faced with a cozy library corner and a wrought iron spiral staircase that leads to the main level. Beyond the secret passage, a sunken room proves useful as a bedroom for an autonomous teen, music room, or rec room. Follow the tunnel that leads to garage and loft. You'll love taking the spiral staircase to access the garage, or continue up to a spacious and sunny loft. Wired for a home office, find its use also for overnight guests. A two piece bathroom keeps occupants immensely satisfied.

In a home where living space is maximized, nature plays a starring role and family and friends come first, the magic behind the lush surrounding gardens is a joy. An amicable community, minutes-away commutes for everyone and the joys of a history-rich neighbourhood await. One of a kind doesn't even begin to describe this home - make an appointment and see it today!
