Old seamlessly blends into new in this tastefully renovated stone farmhouse turned country estate, backing onto the Niagara Escarpment. A long, picturesque laneway leads to a charming covered entry which opens to a functional foyer with slate tile flooring, double coat closet, and double French sliding glass doors leading to the interlock patio and in-ground pool. High-end features such as deep baseboards and crown molding meet historic details – from the original stone wall to the feature stained glass window.
The foyer opens to a main hallway with dark stained hardwood flooring in a satin finish, and a traditional wood staircase. A luxurious powder room features stone tile flooring and a built-in vanity with granite counter top. A deceivingly spacious and modern family room is tucked away, with a built-in entertainment centre with surround sound speakers juxtaposing the vaulted ceiling with original wood beams. Also off the main hallway is a good-sized den, with single French door entry and a large window overlooking the Escarpment.
The open concept living and dining rooms feature a wood-burning stone fireplace with inset wood mantle, central chandelier, and built-in ceiling speakers. Extra deep windows provide hints of the home’s historic charm. A gourmet eat-in kitchen is flooded with natural light from the two double French door walkouts to the covered porch and exposed deck with glass railings – perfect for sipping your morning coffee. Soft close cabinetry, leather-finish granite countertops, a glass tile backsplash, and high-end stainless steel appliances provide all the comforts of the 21st century. An oversized central island with bar seating and pendant lighting serves as the hub of the home, while an additional breakfast area provides for ample choice of seating. An expansive covered porch brings the indoors out, with detailed columns and crown molding, built-in ceiling speakers, exterior lighting, and hook-up for a gas BBQ. Country meets city, with views extending as far as the Toronto skyline!
Upstairs, a second level landing leads to the master retreat with his & hers closets and an additional walk-in closet with built-in storage. The spa-like five-piece ensuite boasts heated tile flooring, a built-in oak vanity with leather finish granite countertop and his & hers under-mount sinks, mirrored wall with sconce lighting, walk-in glass shower with hand-held and rain shower heads, and a gorgeous stand-alone soaker tub set beneath a central chandelier. A main four-piece bath serves two additional bedrooms, each with large closets and dark stained hardwood flooring.
Outdoors, extensive professional landscaping and hardscaping marries the home to the surrounding land. An interlock patio with ample space for dining and entertaining surrounds a unique in-ground salt water pool with in-pool bench seating and a natural stone masonry wall with two sheer waterfall curtains flanking the walk thru diving platform. The 1,258 sqft double tandem four-car garage also serves as a workshop and pool house, with two double French sliding glass doors providing direct access to this multi-functional space, which could easily be renovated into additional finished living space. This home is the opposite of compromise, providing authentic country living just minutes from the city, amenities and major commuter highways. Unique yet conventional - all the modern comforts while still paying homage to this home’s original stately charm.
