80 Sandringham Drive
A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a one of a kind North Toronto Jewel. Originally a coach house, this spacious residence was transformed approximately 33 years ago into the family home you see today. With many additional updates over the years, 80 Sandringham Drive has been meticulously maintained and is ready to be cherished by a new owner.
This handsome home is set on a massive 58 x 484 foot south facing lot. Backing onto the ravine and the Don Valley Golf Course, lush greenery surrounds this property embracing a feeling of country in the city. Step inside and be absorbed by the expansive floor plan.
The grand foyer allows a glimpse of what is to come. The marble tile floors extend to a perfectly positioned powder room and two coat closets flank each side of the front entry door. To the left, is the formal living room which connects to the main dining room. Tremendous natural light streams in through the large windows and adds to the warmth of these two rooms. A privacy door separates the dining room from the renovated kitchen. Beautiful hardwood floors, granite countertops, stone backsplash and sought after stainless steel appliances have transformed this kitchen. The cozy breakfast nook overlooks a spectacular tree lined ravine vista.
The right side of the home opens up into a huge informal family room. The rich wood panelling, dark hardwood floors and traditional wood burning fireplace are contrasted by the extensive light from the three panelled sliding door to the backyard and the built-in halogen lighting. Perfectly hidden for added privacy, is the main floor office. Custom walnut wall panels and a unique hardwood floor pattern make this a perfect and private work from home retreat.
Upstairs, the master suite encompasses the entire front half of the house. A double door entry takes you into a private sitting room or den which is tandem to the master bedroom. The master checks all the boxes. This huge space offers his and hers walk-in closets, a 5-piece ensuite bathroom and a walk-out to a private balcony. The ensuite bathroom was recently renovated with modern tiles, custom vanity, a large walk-in body spray shower and air-jet soaker bathtub. The ensuite bathroom is the perfect spa inspired retreat and a great place to unwind.
Three additional sun filled bedrooms comprise the rest of the second floor. Each bedroom has warm broadloom flooring, ample closet space and sensational views of the ravine greenery. Two more updated bathrooms (ensuite & semi-ensuite) can be found on this floor. Finally, a walk-in cedar closet for delicate garments and textiles completes this upper level.
The lower level of this home is a big catch all space and can be utilized by the entire family. Most notable is the at-grade walkout to the back patio and south facing ravine. For families with kids or for those who love to entertain, the lower level allows for incredible privacy.
The recreation room is sectioned off from the main floor by a glass panelled entry door at the bottom of the staircase. The recreation room has a beautiful beamed ceiling and flagstone mantle and wood burning fireplace. This room has a sliding door that walks out to the at-grade patio. A separate games room, big enough for a pool table, is to the left of the recreation room. The games room has been updated with halogen lights, hardwood floor and decorative wainscotting. Two additional bedrooms with ample natural light, a 4-piece bathroom and laundry room finish of this lower level living space.
The spectacular lot has been noted above. The benefit of a 484 foot deep lot includes the incredible set back from the street. A rambling driveway leads to the house. The contemporary stucco facade and huge glass paneled windows are warm and welcoming. The double car garage, with direct access to the house, is a rare convenience, as is the parking for four + cars in the driveway.
Armour Heights is a sought after north Toronto location. Just minutes to the cricket club, quick highway access and close proximity to the excellent shops and restaurants that run south on Yonge Street or Avenue Road. Good public schools and private education options are all a short drive away. This Armour Heights jewel is the treasure you have been waiting for. Enjoy your tour.
