About the Property
Don’t let the reserved exterior of this expansive Tudor style home fool you. Inside, this brand new 3 +1 bedroom home, you’ll find a sophisticated design that’s anything but stuffy, and ravine-like views that make you want to pull up a chair and stay forever.
Every detail has been carefully considered, from the window in the hall closet offering natural light in a traditionally dour space, to the skylight that floods the split-level main floor with streams of sunshine from the second story.
The kitchen has gorgeous quartz counters, a mosaic backsplash, huge island, stainless steel appliances, including a built-in wine fridge and a lovely view of the backyard – which seems to go on for days – from a remarkably large window over the sink.
The main floor sitting room is wired for television over the gas fireplace, but the more interesting show is what is happening outside. The wall of glass looks over yet another spectacular view of the tiered back-yard with an interlocking stone path leading you up to a wired, heated cottage. Those who have always wanted a stand-alone office, She-Shed, studio or place to send teenagers, your dream is realized here. Back in the house, the main floor also has a 2 piece bath, laundry, storage, security system with 4 recording cameras and access to the garage.
Upstairs, you’ll find another sitting room, similarly wired for TV over a gas fireplace and view to the yard. The second floor also offers a glorious master suite with a stunning ensuite bath. Double sinks, separate tub, and shower, fabulous tile and stonework. There are two more bedrooms including one with a lovely window seat.
The finished basement has a separate entrance at the front of the house. The perfect nanny, or in-law suite, there is a small kitchenette, a spacious bedroom with large windows and a lovely bathroom with the same wonderful finishes you’ll find upstairs.
The sizable garage has room to park two cars, and there is space to park 3 more in the interlocking brick driveway. Oh, and there’s glass block windows to let light in the garage.
