Poised on the river’s edge, this magnificent home affords a sense of grandeur, timeless elegance and the quiet seclusion of a country estate.  It offers the opportunity to define your lifestyle, both as host and as part of an active family.

 

 

The grand reception, brightened by a large picture window, features a magnificent two-storey vaulted ceiling and a minstrels’ gallery. The dramatic library, with floor-to-ceiling cherry panelling and cabinetry, is across the hall from the formal dining room, featuring rich wall coverings and a coffered ceiling.  A great servery provides wonderful storage space for formal dishes and includes a second dishwasher. To the west of the grand foyer is a private, main floor guest suite, a luxurious cloakroom and an elevator to access all three levels of the home. In a delightful break with tradition, the luxuriant living room is at the rear of the splendid main floor. It affords breathtaking views of the spacious stone terrace, landscaped gardens and the river. A bright study or office is adjacent to the living room.

 

 

 

 

The kitchen is superbly equipped, with custom cabinetry, granite counters, a large island with raised breakfast bar and top of the line appliances fit for the enthusiastic chef.  Separated by a built-in sideboard, the adjoining breakfast room opens to the splendid, partially covered stone terrace with built-in gas barbeque. Beyond the breakfast area is the gracious family room. It boasts a vaulted ceiling, handsome gas fireplace and engineered walnut flooring with radiant heat, for added warmth on a quiet winter’s eve. There is an integrated surround sound system and a large entertainment centre with lots of storage space.

 

 

 

The second floor accommodates three spacious bedrooms, each with full ensuite bathrooms, and a magnificent master suite. The master bedroom has a walk-out to a private balcony with heated floors and features a soaring ceiling with recessed lighting. This private haven incorporates a spectacular dressing room with a vaulted ceiling, enhanced by leaded glass skylights and lined with expansive closets – one of which gives access to a “secret” storage room, ideal for suitcases or seasonal items. The other three bedrooms are designed to provide individual charm and character, through elements such as layout, vaulted ceilings, bathroom fixtures and timeless floor designs.

 

 

 

The basement is the recreation centre of this fabulous residence. The large and bright games room features a heated stone walk-out to the expansive limestone patio and river-side garden. It includes a wall-to-wall entertainment unit with a large-screen television. The purpose-built home theatre boasts an eight-speaker (8.1) sound system, a ceiling mounted projector and a floor-to-ceiling screen, for the serious audio and cinephile.  Built as a “room within a room” for sound attenuation, it is the perfect place to enjoy your own private “night at the movies”. For the fitness enthusiast, the work-out room features an exhaust fan and plenty of space for a multitude of exercise systems. The basement also includes a private nanny’s or in-law suite with a four-piece bath, a variety of spacious storage and a sophisticated mechanical room.

 

 

This exceptional property offers a wonderful opportunity to your most discerning clients, who will appreciate the utmost in design, quality of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art amenities.  Hoggs Hollow is one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, yet it is also a uniquely warm and welcoming community.
