Opulent curb appeal. Park views. Quiet inner-city community. A dream home!
Oversized windows, beautiful landscaping, and a stucco exterior are only the beginning of luxury finishes in this 3-storey semi-detached infill. Happily situated in the highly sought-after community of Altadore, mature landscaping frames this home with lush greenery and adds privacy.
Altadore is a popular inner-city community home to several high-end infills and well-maintained bungalows. This upscale neighbourhood is a quick 5-minute bike ride to all Marda Loop offers and is close to several parks/green spaces and schools – including Alternative High School and Central Memorial High School within a few minutes’ walk. Plus, outdoor and recreation choices are endless with the Glenmore Athletic Park and Aquatic Centre across the street. Sandy Beach and River Park are only two blocks away and perfect spots to walk the dog and enjoy picnics by the river.
Across the street from Glenmore Athletic Park, this home overlooks a lovely green space and offers a beautiful South-facing view. Stepping inside the home, the foyer invites you to kick off your shoes, and the coat closet provides ample storage to put them all away. The front living space first greets you with large South-facing windows flooding natural light through the main floor.
Engineered hardwood floors are beneath your feet and draw your eyes to the stunning staircase with a glass railing and the dining room with soaring ceilings reaching the second floor. A gas fireplace set into the two-storey stone feature wall offers warmth to the room's grandeur, along with a beautiful designer light fixture.
A secondary sitting room offers access to the back patio and resides at the rear of the home, right next to the fully equipped kitchen. This makes a great entertaining space for friends and family to gather over appetizers and conversations from the comfort of the couch. For those who like to be more engaged in the meal prep process, bar seating at the exquisite central island is the ideal spot!
Discover high profile quartz waterfall counters, a dual basin stainless steel undermount sink with a garburator, and extensive stained wood detailing made to match the modern cabinets. Commercial grade stainless steel appliances include a Monogram 6-burner gas stove, Jenn-Air built-in microwave and oven, built-in Monogram fridge, and a beverage fridge in the appliance/coffee nook. There’s also a large pantry tucked out of sight with a glass panelled pocket door, which provides ample storage, even enough for your everyday prepper!
The rear mudroom can be hidden behind a pocket door, gives a secondary entrance to the back patio, and provides plenty of extra storage with its built-ins. Finishing off the main floor is an elegant 2-piece powder room tucked behind the stairs for extra privacy and comfort.
Let’s journey straight up to the third level, where the master’s retreat is so splendid it needed a whole floor to itself. At the top of the stairs, you notice engineered hardwood floors cover the suite, and a bright hall of windows reveals a huge South-facing balcony overlooking the park. Partially covered above and with a wood flooring/base, it’s a beautiful escape from the busyness of life where you can soak up vitamin D until your heart’s content.
Stepping through the French doors into the massive bedroom, it’s like a scene right out of a movie. West-facing windows offer lots of natural light, and you can’t wait to hop in bed and watch the sunset through the trees. The massive walk-thru ensuite has an oversized floating vanity with dual vessel sinks, a drop-in soaker tub, and a fully tiled walk-in steam shower. Custom built-ins provide extra storage; a private water closet is tucked away behind the shower, and flanking the water closet is a grand walk-in closet.
Back on the second floor, upgraded carpet and underlay comfort the soles of your feet, and you find a lot of functional spaces. Two generous-sized bedrooms have massive windows and good-sized closets. An oversized built-in desk/office area has walnut cabinets, quartz counters, a beverage fridge, and tons of storage. It makes a great study and homework are with refreshments close by. The bonus room has a built-in TV entertainment area and large windows overlooking the greenspace. The second floor also has a proper laundry room with cabinets, a laundry sink, hanging rods, and tile floors.
Last but not least, the fully developed basement is ready for some recreation in the massive rec room. Ready for your projector, movie nights will become a weekly treat with a wet bar nearby with quartz counters, lower cabinets, and a space for a bar fridge. The 4th bedroom is great for guests or older children with a massive walk-in closet and cheater access to the full bathroom with a fully tiled tub/shower combo. Hydronic in-floor heat throughout the lower level keeps the basement warm and cozy in the winter months, and a storage room with shelving gives even more space for all that extra stuff you want out of sight.
Other upgrades of this home include two high-efficiency furnaces, a central air conditioning unit, a central vacuum system, and wiring for sound and smart home features throughout.
