A butler’s pantry just off the kitchen leads to the formal dining room – making hosting effortless. This area has granite counters, a sink, a beverage fridge, tons of counter space for those small appliances, and a full pantry with lots of food storage. Next to the kitchen, a nook with bay windows offers a great location for looking up your next favourite recipe or relaxing with a cup of tea while you wait for the cookies to come out of the oven.


Adjacent the kitchen, the impressive living room is manages to be both refined and comfortable. Tall, coffered ceilings feel higher next to the wall of West-facing windows. A beautiful, tiled gas fireplace perched below a stately mantle fits perfectly into the panelled surround. 


Through a grand archway, the formal dining room has gorgeous crown moulding details and tray lighting, two vertical windows to draw in light, ceiling speakers to set the mood and a unique, recessed area ideal for a buffet table or hutch. An elegant 2pc powder room completes the main level with a ceiling-height tile feature, granite counters, a vessel sink, and pendant lighting.


Let the winding open-riser solid wood staircase lead you to the grand second floor with skylights above, multiple windows for tons of natural light, and a large built-in hutch in the upper hallway. Hardwood resides on this level through all three bedrooms, each with its own ensuite.


Offering a gorgeous, unobstructed view of the park, the spacious primary bedroom shows like a dream with vaulted/panelled ceilings, panelled feature walls, ceiling speakers, and a two-way gas fireplace shared with the luxurious ensuite.


The attached ensuite with heated tile flooring seems too good to be true, but trust us; it’s not! Soaring cathedral ceilings host a drop-down pendant light over the soaker tub so you can relax in peace nestled next to the gas fireplace with a ceiling-height tile surround. Bay windows offer views of the trees, or you can watch a show on the wall-mounted TV (included)!

Just when you think it can get any better, it does! The basement is just as exciting with all it has to offer, and it starts with the continuation of the open riser solid wood winding staircase all the way downstairs. Features of the basement include tall painted ceilings, tons of pot lights, and polished concrete flooring with in-floor heating…but that’s just the beginning. You’ll also discover a climate-controlled wine room with built-in solid wood bottle storage, a large rec room with a wall-mounted TV and stone-clad gas fireplace, ceiling speakers, and a fully equipped wet bar. Complete with a dishwasher, a beverage fridge, a wine fridge, bar seating, a stone feature wall, quartz counters, and a wall-mounted TV; this bar was made for hosting.

A full bathroom features an oversized quartz vanity with lots of storage, and a glass-enclosed stand-up shower with steam. The basement space is rounded off with an additional guest bedroom with a large walk-in closet and a proper storage room behind the spacious mechanical room.
