This custom-built home is nestled on a most sought after 58.78 x 198.72 foot (irregular lot) in prime Lawrence Park. Incredible craftsmanship and quality materials including plaster crown moulding and extensive custom cabinetry throughout, set the interior of this home apart. With five bedrooms, four of which are above grade and six bathrooms, this admirable home exudes incredible warmth and style that is perfect for the whole family.
Come inside for a peak! The heated marble front foyer is welcoming and perfectly flanked by the formal living room and private library. The library is a special place and currently used as a home office. The rich wood paneled walls, beamed ceilings and custom built-in shelves have a sophisticated feel and pleasant ambiance for work from home days.
The warm western exposure brightens up the formal living room and highlights the beautiful oak hardwood floor with walnut bordered inlays that run throughout. A wood burning fireplace with custom wood mantle and marble surround makes this the perfect formal sitting room. The living room features classic wainscoting and opens up to the formal dining room, which offers similar design details. The acoustic enhancing coffer ceiling allows for a pleasurable dining experience and a great place to entertain guests.
The heart of the home and the centre of family life is the open concept kitchen and family room. This casual space lends itself perfectly to everyday living. The custom crafted chef’s kitchen is restaurant inspired and comes with top-of-the-line appliances, granite counters and a large, accessible pantry / servery. Meals can be enjoyed in the cozy alcove overlooking the backyard and pool. The family room is combined with the kitchen and offers a spacious and comfortable place for family get togethers. The full wall of custom built-in shelves and cabinets encompass the entertainment unit and contemporary gas fireplace and mantle which grounds the room. Flanked by large, ceiling height windows, the room allows for a spectacular view of the flagstone entertainers patio, BBQ and extensive backyard.
No home of this caliber would be complete without an exceptionally functional mudroom providing direct garage as well as separate side access. The custom cabinets provide ample closet and storage space with the perfect balance of accessible cubbies right off the main hallway keeping everyday clutter out of view. The generous yet elegant powder room is discreetly positioned off the front hallway. Both rooms have radiant heated flooring which will be instantly appreciated.
A wide and gradual climbing staircase leads to the bright and airy upstairs hallway thanks to a large central skylight which provides ample natural lighting throughout the centre of the home. The wainscoting continues from the main floor hallway up the stairs and throughout the entire upper hall joining four over-sized bedrooms. The primary suite spans the entire back width of the home. Each component of this suite contributes to the creation of a tranquil and private retreat from the daily grind. The spacious principal bedroom features a coffered ceiling which perfectly sets the pot lights to the side. A cozy gas fireplace adds ambiance, and the built-in speakers can set the mood. The dressing room was designed with custom organizers, built-in drawers, two counter spaces and a centre island, all of which are finished with quartz countertops. The skylight allows for subtle natural light. The sprawling 5-piece ensuite offers neutral finishes with quality materials and the heated marble that floors warm the feet. A standalone soaker bathtub, frameless glass enclosed shower, double vanity, separate console and a private toilet closet add to the functionality of the primary ensuite bathroom.
Three additional bedrooms can be found on the second floor. Each bedroom comes equipped with either a 3 or 4-piece ensuite bathroom with radiant floors. Incredible natural light, rich oak hardwood floors, and large closets with built-in organizers are the main features in all three bedrooms. Guaranteed there will be no fighting over which child gets the better bedroom! Finally, a fully equipped second floor laundry room with additional storage for linens and much more, finishes off the upper-level floor plan.
The lower level of this family home is a cohesive space with radiant heated marble floors throughout. To make the space comfortable, the recreation room has the necessary high ceilings (almost 9 feet) and large windows. This room is currently multi-functional and accommodates a TV entertainment area and games room. Just off the recreation room is a dedicated home gym fitted with a classic mirrored wall, exercise flooring and a TV. The front half of the lower level consists of a fifth bedroom, which could easily be segmented off with the existing 4-piece adjacent bathroom to accommodate a nanny suite. Finally, multiple, ample storage spaces and a secure, 1000+ bottle wine cellar completes the lower level.
Step outside to the backyard oasis inspired by Ontario Cottage Country. Five star outdoor entertaining in the summer is a breeze. The kids can keep active in the salt water pool, while the adults can relax poolside on the flagstone patio or interlock sundeck. Everyone will enjoy the convenience of the backyard cabana. The mature trees surround this fully fenced backyard and add privacy and tranquility. The extra-deep lot allows for multiple areas of outdoor enjoyment without feeling cramped or constrained. Parking is not an issue here. The double driveway can park five cars and the attached garage offers one additional parking spot.
