16 Alderbrook Drive
Nestled on a quiet crescent in the desirable neighbourhood of Banbury is 16 Alderbrook Drive. Almost 14,000 square feet of lush landscaped land awaits. The massive lot is slightly irregular but offers 100 foot frontage. The gardens have been meticulously maintained with mature perennials and ample green shrubbery. The fully fenced backyard offers a sun patio that overlooks the inground pool. Experience ultimate privacy in this tranquil backyard setting.
The home itself is a classic 1960s side split offering incredible living space and spacious bedrooms. Spread over 4 floors the current home boasts over 3500 square feet of living space. The main floor has a welcoming foyer that leads straight into the open concept living and dining room. From this combined space, massive windows and an at grade walkout overlook the backyard and pool. The eat-in kitchen can accommodate a large family. There is plenty of cabinetry for storage and counter space for food prep. Large windows span the entire west wall making this a warm and inviting kitchen.
The ground floor offers an at grade level family with a walk-out to the backyard. This is a space that will appeal to young families as it is set aside from the more formal part of the home but is still very much connected. Again, lots of light streams in through the windows and there is a wood burning double sided fireplace that acts as a natural room divider. An additional office or potential bedroom and a powder room complete the ground floor.
The upper level of the house is the sleeping quarters, four bedrooms and two bathrooms can be found. The primary suite has its own 4-piece ensuite bathroom and excellent closet space. The three kids bedrooms all have closets and of equal size. These rooms share a 4-piece bathroom.
Finally, the lower level of this home has a catch all recreation room that is large enough for an entertainment area and games room. The wet bar is an added convenience.
Given the quality of the existing home, there is potential to live “as is” and renovate overtime. However, there is incredible potential to re-develop the land and build a custom crafted masterpiece. Many area homes have already undergone this transformation. The property size can accommodate a very large new construction home, a possible 3 car garage and a backyard oasis.
16 Alderbrook Drive is situated just North of Edwards Gardens near the intersection of Lawrence and Leslie. Excellent schools are nearby and the TTC, including the Eglinton Crosstown are just a short walk away. All the shops and amenities required can be found at Shops at Don Mills- a premium outdoor shopping mall or the plaza at York Mills and Leslie.
