Amazing family home located on a much sought after south of Lakeshore court with soaring mature trees and only steps to prestigious Appleby College.
This home is elevated from street level and rests lengthwise on the lot providing a stately presence although the home is so tastefully integrated into nature via an outstanding landscape plan the curb appeal emanates a Zen like luxury.
Extensive renovations throughout and tremendous attention to detail have given way to the creation of a home that is both high functioning for family but as well a space with style and substance that is not in the least bit plain or vanilla. Material selections such as Onyx in the master bath and birds eye maple countertops in the lower level bar add interest and character.
The home is 5477 sq ft above grade, features large principal rooms and has great flow.
Entrance to the home is gained through beautiful double wood doors with decorative leaded glass.
The custom kitchen from Top Notch features top of the line appliances, an eat-in kitchen and a walk out to a built-in bbq area with a bar area with seating and then opens up to a true outdoor oasis.
There is a generous main floor office/den with a warm and inviting fireplace surrounded by built-ins and serene views through the large windows.
An oversized living room that is ideal for entertaining is also warmed by an open gas fireplace and features massive picture windows. One step up and offset is the formal dining room, a great way to bring the rooms together while still allowing for some separation.
The family room is open to the kitchen and is super inviting. The focal point of the room is the floor to ceiling stone wood-burning fireplace with a flat screen TV above. Rich wood accenting surrounds the bench seat in the window and is picked up again as trim around the TV and with the built in cabinetry next to it, all of which is stained to match the rich dark hardwood floors.
The main floor also features a 2nd mudroom entrance with built-ins, cubby’s, shoe storage and hanging rack. Access to the garage, the rear yard, a powder room and a 2nd staircase are also located in this multi-function space.
Upstairs features 4 generous bedrooms, one of which can easily be a 2nd master bedroom. The master itself is spacious, features a fireplace, loads of closet space and an outstanding Onyx tiled ensuite. There is a great 2nd level laundry and lots of additional light is brought into the home through skylight tubes.
The lower level features a full sized gym with mirrored walls and rubberized floors. Workout and then relax in a truly spa like bathroom with a huge steam room, glassed in shower with body sprayers, a massive soaking tub, built-in speakers and even room for a massager chair. This bathroom is spectacular, especially for a lower level.
There is also a large recreation room with large flat screen TV and a really cool bar with a bird’s eye maple counter top. Open to this room is the games room with space for a full sized snooker table.
Perhaps one of the most striking features of this home is the landscaping. There are so many interesting zones created around the exterior of the home. Cut stone walkways encircle the home and stone accent walls as well as trellis’s and landscape lighting accent the natural beauty of the massive trees and well thought out plantings. The entire space is artfully lit at night with indirect lighting and it is all serviced by an in ground sprinkler system. A massive amount of thought and design has gone into the creation of the exterior space and its beauty is abundant year round but especially in spring through fall.
This is not a cookie cutter home. It is simultaneously unique, charismatic, luxurious, spacious and elegant. It will satisfy a large family and the discerning buyer looking for all of luxury’s creature comforts.
