But the perfectly manicured front garden and subtle details tell another story: chic black-clad windows match the open gable roof trim and veranda, minimal matte black coach lamps illuminate every arrival, and a cherry red door foreshadow great things within. Upon closer inspection: impeccable maintenance, painstaking upgrades, and a hidden from view addition belie this home's traditional exterior. Over the threshold, discover a thought provoking dialogue between old and new, and a floor plan that celebrates natural light and openness of space. Walls have been moved and reconfigured to accommodate sightlines, create intimate spaces, and increase every day functionality. Fixtures have been re-centred for optimal visual flow, pot lights added for effortless evening light. Original character is enhanced by way of custom four piece baseboards and refinished floors. Continue through the main hall to find an open kitchen illuminated by a clerestory window on the left. Crisp white cabinetry climbs to the ceiling and contrasts beautifully with granite countertops. At the centre, a walnut butcher block island lays claim to impromptu social gatherings, meal prep and post-school and work snack time. Five star appliances like Bosch and Fisher & Paykel make a perfect sous chef pairing. A compact butler's pantry with a wine fridge sits nearby, ready for easy access. Find thoughtful social zones on either side of the kitchen. Towards the front of the house, an intimate tv or family room, ready for quiet evenings in. At the back of the house, a sweeping living and dining room combination is framed by epic proportions. In the living room, a vaulted ceiling punctuated by a skylight feels effortless and airy - the conversation that follows is just as good in this relaxed, easy space. Move freely into the dining area, delineated by rounded open shelving and a window seat. Whether hosting a crowd of 5 or 15, the setting is intimate, incomparably cool, and full of ease. Beyond, a custom mudroom with access to the backyard features playful tile and ceiling-reaching built-ins to keep family paraphernalia within reach but out of sight. The result is like the rest of the house: smart, wildly practical, as stylish as the pages of Vogue Living. The truly incredible scale and size of this unique lot is appreciated in the sprawling backyard. Marvel at the expansive space so close to urban amenities. Winding paths lead through low-maintenance perennials, an original barn yields endless opportunities for a guest house, hobby zone, or home gym. Perfectly private, abundant in alfresco delights - this is a truly rare delight for families who enjoy the outside as much as in. Upstairs, original detailing on newel posts yields an elegant contrast to crisp white surroundings. Three bedrooms on this level are beautifully turned out and generously sized. Loft ceilings, sun-filled windows, and closets with sweet wallpaper accents lend an inviting warmth to every space. One room features a sunny balcony with a street view, while another is accessed via an activity room or home office - flexible space for working from home creative abound. The main bathroom on this floor has been entirely updated with a fine eye: patterned tile, oversized mirror, and shaker cabinetry in the softest shade of gray pair beautifully with a ceramic farmhouse sink and subway tile. A glass shower tub combo with wall niche and indoor clerestory window are perfect. On the third level, an unequalled adult refuge awaits. Spanning the entire top floor, grey washed floors, loft ceilings and sleek, Scandi-inspired decor complete a sanctuary like no other. An open concept closet pairs with a custom built floating dresser and headboard unit - everything in this space has been intentionally designed for optimal form, flair, and function. In the bathroom, heated marble floors are a wintertime benefit, while the large walk-in glass shower starts every morning routine on the right foot. In the basement, find additional benefits in a studio apartment that features large windows, a kitchen and main bath. With a separate entrance, it is also ideal for an in-law or nanny suite. Unmatched in design and function, enjoy this oasis knowing that all the advantages of cosmopolitan living are at your fingertips. Walk to groceries, services, and restaurants in the Glebe, Lansdowne or Bank Street south. Schools, political and business hubs are only minutes away by car, bike, or on foot. Updated historic homes that offer so much well-designed space are a rare find. See it today!
