Rarely does a home of this calibur and quality come available. This architecturally stunning home and transitional masterpiece was designed by renowned architect Richard Weangle. Nestled in a most sought-after Lawrence Park location and set on a spectacular 69 x 133 foot lot. The exterior of this home boasts a timeless aesthetic and unmatched curb appeal with the use of custom cut Indian limestone and traditional red brick. Step inside and soak in the superb finishes, ideal floor plan and over 9000 square feet of interior living space.
The welcoming front foyer offers the first hints of the custom perfection that continues throughout the home. The striking black marble tile floors and gold accented hardware creates a handsome first impression and sets the tone for the rest of the house. The first of the main floor powder rooms is perfectly positioned off the foyer. The formal living room has exceptional architectural elements. The beautiful bay windows allow natural light to stream across the rift-cut 7” white oak hardwood floor and the gas fireplace has been surrounded by a rare onyx stone slab. The living room is combined with an open concept dining room. White paneled walls, Built-in speakers and a Butler’s door to access the kitchen are the notable features of this formal space.
The kitchen can be entered either through the butler’s pantry or from the main hallway. The kitchen craftsmanship and finishings are unparalleled. All the individual features of this room standout- from the massive centre island with marble top to the La Cornue range that mirrors the black and gold stylistic accents that carry through the home. Off the kitchen is a full sized Butler’s pantry that accommodates additional cabinetry, wine storage and clean up provisions. This eat-in kitchen also has a spacious breakfast area that overlooks the south-facing backyard. The kitchen is open to an incredible family room that exudes a casual warmth. The double sided linear gas fireplace adds a modern element to the space, as does the gold surround and black linear wall paneling.
The width of the house can really be felt in the positioning of the home office. This room has a spectacular view of the backyard and includes a walk-out to the back patio. The room itself has a custom built-in bookshelf and the second side of the linear gas fireplace surrounded in a feature wall of onyx and gold tiling. The office connects with an incredible mudroom. There is both side door access and direct access to the at-grade double car garage. An extensive custom closet system, heated tile floors and an additional main floor powder room are some of the features.
A sensational curved staircase and massive skylight leads to the upstairs. Double doors open up to the primary bedroom. Nothing has been overlooked in the design of this suite. The bedroom includes a walkout to a balcony that overlooks the backyard, modern built-in dressers and a gas fireplace. Separate his and hers dressing rooms with custom closet organizers and gorgeous accent hardware can be found on the way to the 8-piece ensuite bathroom.
The spa-inspired ensuite is enveloped in stunning gray porcelain tiles with striking white veining. The seamless glass enclosed steam shower offers dual rain showerheads and a linear drain system. The standalone soaker bathtub has a pedestal view of the backyard and the custom double vanity has a marble top that matches the tile floor to perfection.
Four additional bedrooms, each with quality ensuite bathrooms and excellent closets can be found. Again, the width of this home can be felt with the addition of a second floor den. This open concept room is the perfect kid hang out or the ideal homework room as it has been fitted with a custom built-in desk. Rounding out the second floor is a convenient laundry room for smaller quick loads.
The lower level of this spacious home is the perfect casual space. Radiant heated floors instantly warm up the hardwood floor in the winter months. The inviting wine room doubles as “art” at the bottom of the stairs. The recreation room is an entertainers paradise and comes complete with a wet bar and kitchen prep space for snacks. From here, walk-out to the backyard or head to the home theater room with tiered seating and surround sound system. Any home of this caliber requires a home gym. A spacious gym can be positioned off the recreation room. This gym would have direct access to a massive steam shower after a hard workout. An additional laundry room and another bedroom with an ensuite bathroom finishes off the interior living space of this custom-crafted masterpiece.
Outside, pure pleasure awaits in the backyard. This 69 x 133 foot south-facing lot is calling for a swimming pool in the future. Currently, the spectacular entertainers' patio will steal the show. The fully fenced yard is surrounded by mature trees, red brick planter boxes/retaining wall. A bubbly water feature adds to the ambiance. The private driveway with a snowmelt system and a double car garage allows for ample parking. The snow melt system extends to the front walkway and up to the front porch for low maintenance living in the winter.
