In 1951, MacKenzie Waters designed this delightful home creating the perfect “petite” Rosedale home and the ideal downsizing solution!

 

 

 

The vestibule opens to a gracious foyer with soaring 11-foot ceiling ceilings. To the right is the expansive living room with vaulted ceilings at the same 11’4”, a black marble wood-burning fireplace and French windows. To the south end, adjoins the dining room which is flanked by walls of windows, with sliding doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking the private garden. These rooms ensure entertaining of any scale will continue to be an integral part of your life!

 

 

 

 

For day to day living there is the combined kitchen/family room which opens to the magical deck and garden. The kitchen layout is perfect for family time with a centre island, granite countertops and concealed laundry room. The gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling with sliding door to the deck of the family room are the perfect spot to relax.

 

 

 

 

The main level is where you will find one of the three bedrooms located in the home. It features built-in closets and drawers, beautiful hardwood floors, and an east-facing window. The master bedroom is located on the second level, which includes a wall of closets, dormer windows, and a master ensuite with a claw foot tub, heated tile flooring, and a sky light!

 

 

 

 

The deck itself is noteworthy for its vaulted pergola shaded by a climbing hydrangea which dates to the original construction of the house. The back garden is a wonderland of privacy with mature evergreen plantings throughout.

 

 

 

 

The lower level offers an entirely self-contained suite. With deep window wells, this feels a million miles from a “basement” and has been used by children before they moved out on their own, live-in caregivers, and tenants ensuring the home was occupied while the owners spent winters South.

 

 

 

This is a once in a blue moon opportunity!
