Exceptionally planned and impressively executed.
Where old world charm and modern elegance blend seamlessly together to create an absolute dream home set on a majestic two acre treed property. Pride of ownership shines the moment you pull into the meticulously maintained laneway, leading to this 4+1 bedroom bungalow with 3 car garage. Step through the double doors into the large foyer and be wowed by the expansive great room with cathedral ceilings that lies ahead. A dining space large enough to host any family feast, adjacent to a stunning living room, all centered around double doors leading to the spectacular screened in 3-season porch.
The left wing is home to a culinary kitchen complete with granite counters, and an oversized eat up island, walk-in pantry, gas range and other stainless steel appliances, alongside the perfect eating nook. Step down into the sunken family room, with an impressive stone fireplace, flanked on either side by custom built-ins. Every window is adorned with custom window coverings offering as much or as little light coverage to suit every preference.
Four incredibly generous bedrooms make up the right wing of this home. A principal suite featuring double walk in closets, and a 5-piece en-suite sure to appeal to any buyer. An oversized rainfall shower, soaker tub, separate vanities, and water closet. Three additional bedrooms, all perfectly appointed and adjacent to a full 4-piece main bath.
The main level is completed by a large office conveniently accessed off the main foyer, and a laundry room/mudroom with access to the oversized 3 bay garage.
A custom wood staircase leads to the impressively finished lower level. A gym, recroom, library, large bedroom perfect as an in-law/nanny suite, three-piece bath, huge storage room and studio alongside a secondary entrance with foyer accessed from the garage make the possibilities endless; home office, business, art studio, massage therapy space, or secondary dwelling!
And then the absolute star of the show, the Welwyn Wong designed backyard, rival to any resort living available. Exceptionally planned and impressively executed. Flagstone patios, armour stone retaining walls, interlocked fire pit and salt water pool with cabana, all framed by easy to maintain gardens and iron fences. The softscape and hardscape are so beautifully integrated, you’ll be asked to host every summer function. And just beyond the gates enjoy a blazed walking trail through the woods, for after dinner strolls, or winter snow shoeing, all within the property’s perimeter.
