Welcome to this exceptionally elegant family home located on one of the most coveted streets in North Rosedale. Designed in the Elizabethan style circa 1920, it was completely renovated and re-planned by the current owners. The house sits majestically high up on a knoll overlooking the magical tree-lined Roxborough Drive. The large windows allow for ample east, south, north and west natural light.

 

In the reception, there is a long elegant hallway with marble floors and tall ceilings. Off the main hallway is the panelled oak library with a gas fireplace overlooking the front garden. Across the hall is the large and very well-appointed dining room with lots of desired architectural features including cornice mouldings and a gas fireplace with carved mantle. The living room which is accessed off the long reception, has rich hardwood floors, a gas fireplace with carved mantle and French doors out to a private west facing red brick terrace.

 

 

 

At the rear of the first floor, you will find the combination family room and gourmet kitchen. The family room is large and overlooks the rear garden and covered terrace. The large eat-in kitchen is ideal for those that like to prepare gourmet meals and entertain. In addition, there is a large servery which leads to the dining room. The servery has been created with entertaining in mind, especially for well-laid out storage for silverware and dinner service.

 

 

 

 

Off the kitchen and family room are French doors to the rear treed garden. The rear garden is an extension of the house and is an ideal place to entertain both family and friends. There are towering trees and lovely French-style manicured “jardin” with boxwood borders. There are many areas to sit and entertain. In the garden, the pavilion can be found, which is a wonderful place to escape for both relaxing and entertaining. It would make for a fun place to do yoga or to watch television.

 

 

On the second floor, there are three very good sized bedrooms each with an ensuite. All bedrooms are fitted out with sitting areas and two of them have gas fireplaces. The two south bedrooms overlook the front gardens. The third bedroom is located at the rear of the house off the second-floor reception area. This bedroom also enjoys an ensuite bathroom. In addition, off the reception is a large family room that could also be another bedroom or playroom. 

 

 

 

The reverse staircase continues to the third floor where there is a large reception with vaulted ceilings leading to a bright sitting room with a gas fireplace and walk-out to a rooftop terrace, where there is a hot tub and a sitting area which has a roughed in gas fireplace. The entire third floor is devoted to the Master ensuite. In addition, is the large bedroom area and adjoining sitting area with walk-out. Through the skylit master bedroom is a coffee station that leads through to a large fitted dressing room and vanity. The marbled master ensuite is accessed through here with its double sinks, large soaker tub and fully enclosed walk-in shower stall and built-in bench.

 

 

 

 

In the lower level is the main reception area which adjoins the billiards room, the fitted wet bar, and walk-in wine cellar. One of the many treats for this special home is the nine-seat media room, ideal for family movie nights. There is a fitted powder room which is combined with a shower stall. Next to the ensuite is the home gym, which can easily be converted to a nannys bedroom which could have direct access to the bathroom. Off the hallway is another fitted laundry room.

 

 

The interior and exterior of the property check off a lot of the desired amenities that a growing family is seeking today. And of course, nearby is the fabled Rosedale Park at one end and at the other end is historic Chorley Park with its abundant walking trails and off-leash dog walking.

 

 

This property is currently listed at $8,475,000. For more information, please contact James Warren and Christopher Killam at (416) 925-9191.
