Elegant Old Village Five Bedroom Home
This wonderful Rockcliffe Park family home offers space galore and fantastic curb appeal. The elegant stone home is set well back from prestigious Mariposa Avenue, which is accessed via a lovely circular driveway. The property has wonderful trees and the beautifully landscaped garden’s privacy is assured by a mature hedge. A spacious deck off the kitchen/family room area gives access to the back gardens.
The principal rooms are all of impressive dimensions. The foyer and front hall area are spacious and welcoming, having warm hardwood floors, a theme that extends to the rest of the house. The living room and dining room are elegant, spacious and, like the rest of the house, filled with natural light. A large bay living room window affords streetscape views while a lovely wood-burning fireplace with white plaster surround adds warmth and interest to the space. The dramatic dining room is suited to formal entertaining, the potential scale of which is expanded by patio doors to the deck that in turn accesses the back gardens. There is a charming screened-in porch off the main-floor den and a nicely-decorated powder room.
The kitchen is open to the eating area and the adjacent family room. This space has a bright, airy feel as the back wall consists of floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors. The kitchen is suited to both entertaining and family living, comprising an enormous functional area when combined with the eating area and expansive family room. The kitchen benefits from granite counter tops, light coloured cabinetry and a built-in glass cabinet with its own bar sink and wine cooler.
A nicely-detailed hardwood staircase with white balusters and wood hand rails leads to the second floor. En route, at the half-landing, is situated a charming bedroom. The master bedroom suite is located on the second floor. It is spacious, bright and has great garden views. A walk-in closet, comfortable sitting room and large ensuite bathroom contribute to its appeal. The sitting room, with its own entrance and walk-in closet, could serve admirably as a bedroom. There are two additional, spacious bedrooms, one with its own ensuite bathroom, on this level as well as a family bathroom.
The third floor comprises a large bedroom and bathroom, providing the ultimate in privacy.
The basement is partly finished with a large recreation room with a seven-foot ceiling, windows and a brick fireplace. There are also a large closet and a storage/mechanicals room.
