This stylish, detached home exudes sophistication right from the beginning, with its contemporary brick, Ipe wood and glass streetscape. As soon as you walk up the stone path to the front steps, you are struck by the impeccably-designed, custom landscaping. The gardens contain Japanese maples, boxwood and tasteful groundcover nestled in Corten steel retaining walls.

 

As you walk through the front door, you get the sense of how much natural light flows through the home. The entire main floor is open-concept with unifying hardwood floors throughout. The focal point of the living room is a dramatic, modern gas fireplace with a cement-tiled surround and custom built-in cabinetry that provides the perfect spot to set up cocktail hour. There is also a walk-out to the patio from this room to enjoy the wonderfully landscaped yard. The floor-to-ceiling windows at both the front and rear of the home truly bring the outside in, yet they are tinted for privacy and have motorized blinds for the evening as needed.

 

 

The urmet kitchen has custom cabinetry with dovetailed soft-close drawers, marble counters and backsplash. The extra-large Caesarstone waterfall island with seating is the place guests will congregate while you dazzle them with your cooking skills! Aspiring chefs will be impressed with the premium appliances, including a Thermador refrigerator, Wolf stovetop, Arc-Zephyr stainless steel vent hood, Jenn-Air oven, warming drawer and microwave and Miele dishwasher.

 

 

The dining room is sized generously to accommodate large dinner parties and offers street and garden views through the large dramatic windows as well as a view of the stunning floating staircase in the home. There is a main floor 2 piece powder room with a vessel sink, Kohler falling water faucet and marble counters. The custom-designed, glass-panelled floating staircase with lit hardwood treads connects the four levels of the home and allows light to pass through, adding to the airiness of the space.

 

 

 

The master suite utilizes the entire third floor, providing a true sanctuary at the end of a hectic day. It has plenty of room for a king-size bed and also features the continuation of the hardwood floors, built-in speakers, a contemporary styled ceiling fan for summer nights and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city with motorized blinds for privacy. The master bathroom touts a spacious glass-enclosed “wet room” that includes a curvaceous free-standing bathtub in addition to the shower and a glass-tiled backsplash wall that provides visual interest. The bonus to this master retreat is the dressing room area that features custom cabinetry providing generous clothing storage. The master dressing room has a walk-out to a stunning terrace that accommodates the two large outdoor sofas and coffee table providing the perfect ambiance to enjoy summer evenings.

 

 

 

 

On the second floor, there are three bedrooms as well as a small balcony at the top of the stairs. The second bedroom is south-facing and overlooks the street through an impressive wall of glass that also has motorized blinds for privacy. The second bedroom has a contemporary four-piece en-suite washroom with a large glass shower enclosure. This bathroom has light oak cabinetry, waterfall light coloured Caesarstone countertops and a large vessel sink.

 

 

The middle bedroom accommodates a queen-size bed ready for overnight guest and comes with a built-in headboard and floating night tables to stow away small items. There is a closet to tuck away clothes and suitcases and the bonus of a built-in desk area. The upper family room is situated overlooking the back garden and has built-in cabinetry for the TV and media as well as additional space for books and collectables. This room could natively be converted into a fourth bedroom if required.

 

 

The lower level has excellent ceiling height with the main room functioning as a well-equipped gym with a rubber floor, weights and weight equipment plus a TRX system so your personal trainer can come to you! For those with less active hobbies, this area could easily be modified into a theatre or craft room. To the rear of the lower level is a room that is currently used as a spare bedroom with a 3-piece, en-suite washroom. Alternatively, this +1 room could be used as an office or for storage.

 

 

What makes this home the ultimate turnkey property is the extensive, custom landscaping. The stone and Ipe wood walkways and patios are thoughtfully designed to make full use of the rear garden. The yard is fully fenced using horizontal cedar panels. The rear yard is the perfect retreat from city living and for enjoying the summer BBQ season. The rear garden leads to a two-car garage that features heated floors as well as an alcove for storage of bikes, ski gear, etc. To have a two-car garage in this area is a true bonus! The garage is accessed from the rear laneway.
