Sherwood Park/Lawrence Park South
148 Blythwood Road
What an opportunity! 148 Blythwood Road is a sensational 40 x 328 foot ravine property in the heart of midtown Toronto. Set on approximately ⅓ of an acre, with a massive set back from the street, this four bedroom, four bathroom detached home has been impeccably renovated and is a spectacular turn key family home.
Take it all in as you walk up the stone path way to the covered front porch. Rebuilt to capture the charm of times past, this welcoming outdoor space offers shade from the warm southern exposure and recessed lighting for evening street views.
The interior of this classic beauty has had a back to the studs renovation and offers an exceptional floor plan with a transitional architectural feel. The home’s original features are balanced with new modern materials and finishes. The gracious foyer blends functionality and style. The spacious entry allows room to maneuver, the generous closet hides all the clutter and the powder room is perfectly positioned.
From here, the formal living room has a cozy feel with a traditional wood burning fireplace, beamed ceiling and sliding door for privacy. This room opens up to an entertainers dining room that is well situated between the formal living room and the casual open concept family room. The dining room offers a similar aesthetic appeal with beamed ceiling and quality millwork trim.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and opens up to the spacious family room. The massive centre island offers breakfast bar seating. The custom cabinetry has been finished with natural stone countertops, quality hardware and decorative mouldings. Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances are also included. The kitchen also has a walk-out to the raised backyard deck and also provides quick access to and from the rear double car garage.
The open concept family room is casual in feel and is definitely the home's entertainment hub. The built-in speakers and dimmable pot lights make this the perfect room for family gaming and movie night. The abundance of natural light also makes this a perfect daytime reading room.
The staircase to the second floor highlights the consistent transitional design choices. Modern glass handrails open up the staircase. The skylight offers additional light and the traditional bay windows speak to the original character of the home.
Nothing was overlooked in the design of the master suite. Taking up the back half of the home this spacious bedroom has his and her walk-in closets with custom shelving. The spa inspired 5-piece ensuite bathroom is sure to be a relaxing retreat. The rare gas fireplace also ups the ambiance of this beautifully finished bathroom.
Three additional bedrooms can be found on the second floor. Each bedroom offers incredible natural light, rich hardwood floors and closets with built-in organizers. There will be no fighting over which child gets the better bedroom! These three bedrooms share a renovated 5-piece bathroom with ample built-in storage. Finally, a must have second floor laundry room finishes off the tour of the upper level.
The lower level of this renovated gem has been finished with the same quality and attention to detail as the upper two levels. A massive recreation room, ideal to be used as a combo games room and home gym, has incredible natural light, built-in speakers and bright pot lights for evening enjoyment. No home of this caliber would be complete without a dedicated room for wine storage. Currently finished with built-in cedar veneer cabinets, the addition of a chiller in the future would be simple. An additional fifth bedroom and a 4-piece bathroom finishes off the lower level living space.
Beyond the house itself is a spectacular property. Nestled on a one-of-a-kind 328 foot secluded ravine lot, 148 Blythwood Road offers everything imaginable. The wide mutual drive allows for easy parking and access to the newer constructed double car garage. A private entertainers patio can be found just beyond the garage and a Koi pond with tranquil water feature adds to the ambiance. The property sprawls from here, the field of grassy table land is surrounded by greenery and the trees that line the ravine.
