On approach, there's a formality to automated coach lights flanking the circular driveway, simultaneously allowing room for a crowd and providing a sense of event. Winter yields a formidable surprise as an automated heated driveway leaves snow a non-issue and the insulated garage grants two cars shelter from the cold. Stucco façade around mullioned windows paired with robust porch pillars yield impeccable scale and a lofty impression. Heated floors welcome at the wide entryway, extending to tile floors throughout the home. A discreet powder room lends convenience.
In the kitchen, show-stopping granite offers tons of counter space, with peninsula housing an under-counter freezer. A gas stove, appliance garage, and built-in garbage units make for light work. Three full-scale panes of a south-facing sink window and pot lighting throughout illuminate the space just so. A clever command centre sees infinite use as a homework station when children are young, and home office beyond. Off the kitchen, the height of function lies in mudroom garage access, laundry and storage – invaluable for stashing gear and life's less glamourous necessities.
In the dining room, the home's maple floors, teamed with the smooth curve of a bump-out and recessed window and adjacent stone of the neighbouring fireplace provide the room's dramatic focal point. Spot the design lesson – home can be both super-functional, everyday casual, and also yield moments of elegant sophistication. The stone teaser leads guests to explore. A step down produces a cozy, intimate vibe in the family room, where Rockcliffe meets Montebello. With a rough-hewn timber beam on cathedral ceilings, the rustic warmth of the stone fireplace, and sky-high windows to the yard, family games night, hot tub after-party, or a book and a blanket – it all looks good here. Nearby, the study's pine walls and fireplace produce deep comfort with a rich, masculine vibe offset by multi-directional windows.
Upstairs, the master suite's walk-in closet houses great built-in shelving and drawers at the ready; the ensuite's double corner tub, glassed shower, heated floors and sensor-activated instant hot water call for an extra ten minutes of indulgence. Second, third and fourth bedrooms share the main bathroom's glass-enclosed relaxation tub; in common throughout the second floor – great closet storage and view-conscious windows that maximize natural light.
The basement proves utilitarian, flexible and smartly finished – in addition to open pot-lit living, working, or playing space, two additional bedrooms, a workshop, bathroom rough-in and well-appreciated storage round out the floor.
Outside, the gazebo's footprint boasts space for a crowd; the sink, bar, fridge and gas bbq hookup present the tools to throw a great gathering. The yard's summer privacy, courtesy of Mother Nature, produces a west-facing getaway under the pergola – with vines climbing above and flagstone underfoot, wine country has never felt so close.
