This prized and historic home is located steps from the enchanting castle, Casa Loma, a constant reminder of the magic of this neighbourhood. Encircled by parkland and ravines, this community is like something from a storybook and is truly one of a kind!
There’s something about the first glimpse, with its mesmerizing front porch, Tudor peaks and lush gardens, that instantly lifts your mood. Its 4,300 square feet have been playfully transformed to pass the test of time yet accommodate a young modern family’s lifestyle.
There’s much to love as at every turn, you’ll find something unexpected: herringbone wood floors; reclaimed vintage and hand carved fireplace mantel; a kitchen island with stainless steel apron sink and custom pantry; sliding oak doors with glass panels on vintage barn rail; and the subtle use of veined marble on counters, floors and walls.
The heart of this home is the main floor great room which includes an inviting kitchen combined with an oversized breakfast area overlooking the glory of the backyard, a family room with stylish built-ins, a fireplace with marble tile surround and a built-in desk off to the side. And let’s not forget a custom designed mud room to organize all your family’s “stuff.”
The master bedroom is a welcome refuge from the fast paced world. A luxurious five piece bathroom will be your haven offering heated mosaic marble floor, dual rain head shower, a Louis XIV buffet as vanity, medicinal grade BainUltra air jet bathtub which all set the stage for classic elegance. A walk in closet will deliver your storage wish and the adjoining sitting room, with its view of Casa Loma, is a constant reminder of the importance of romance.
The third floor, streaming light from its stairwell skylight and cathedral rafter ceilings houses two massive bedrooms with expansive closets, a lovely four piece bathroom and a sun-drenched deck overlooking treetops. This special place is perfect for teenager’s, guests, home office, gym or media room.
The lower level includes a huge rec room, an art room that can be a nanny’s room, a convenient modern, spacious laundry room, a fabulous bathroom and more storage than you could ever dream of.
The neighbourhood’s charm factors in the close proximity to downtown, steps to St Clair West subway, trendy shops and delicacies on St Clair Avenue and Forest Hill Village, Loblaws, Wells Hill Park, Sir Winston Churchill Park, Bishop Strachan and Upper Canada College, the most prestigious private schools in the country and every other urban amenity in your wish roster.
