Gorgeous Rockcliffe Park Retreat
Setting a new standard of elegance and sophistication, this timeless Rockcliffe Park residence is located on a quiet and desirable street in a prime location in the Old Village. A heated interlock driveway leads to the oversized garage that accommodates three cars and has a heated floor. From here one can easily access the sports equipment room/workshop.
The house plans for this incredible lifestyle residence were years in the making and incorporate a low maintenance living style in a luxurious setting. The house is perfect for couples/families who are on the go and was brilliantly designed to bring the outdoors in. Sitting high on a rare south-facing lot, the design ensures the home is filled with light throughout the day.
The oversized walnut front door opens to a dramatic foyer and great room. Immediately you can sense that the richness of the building materials is what sets this home apart from all others. The exterior is all stone and the interior is of concrete construction, ensuring low maintenance and quiet living. The floors – including the specially designed hardwood – are heated throughout.
The layout unfolds beautifully. With richly detailed, high, coffered ceilings, beautiful mouldings and a fireplace, the great room offers amazing living and entertaining space. It even has a custom built media/entertainment centre. The dining room enjoys southern exposure and opens to a covered terrace with views of the tranquil infinity pool, hot tub and well-landscaped gardens. The custom kitchen has hand glazed cabinetry and sophisticated design elements that include magnificent hardware. With two gorgeous granite centre islands, one with a wine bar and the other with counter seating, this room is both functional and elegant. Adjacent to the kitchen, the spacious breakfast room has a stone fireplace with a raised hearth. A 12-foot wall of sliding doors accesses the covered terrace with its stainless steel, built-in barbecue wall with professional hood fan and lobster/corn cooker element. There are plenty of built-in ceiling heaters and fly fans allowing you to use this outdoor room through November. The main floor also has a fabulous walk-in pantry and a light-filled laundry room with granite countertops and custom cabinetry.
The phenomenal main floor master suite has French doors that access the terrace. There is a fabulous walk-in closet along with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a glass shower, separate soaking tub and a water closet. The romantic master suite is spacious with high ceilings, southern exposure and beautiful pool and garden views.
There is a gorgeous staircase to the mezzanine gallery with hand wrought iron spindles. The mezzanine gallery has two additional spacious bedrooms (one may be converted into two rooms to yield three bedrooms on the second floor.) The beautiful family bathroom has a mosaic wall, separate soaking tub and glass shower.
The walk-out lower level offers wonderful finished space including a fitness room with a floor-to-ceiling tiled wall, a sauna, a full bathroom, a recreation room (may be a home theatre), a sports equipment room and workshop, plus a large storage/furnace room. There is plenty of space to accommodate for a bright in-law suite with a separate entrance. The garage floor is heated and accommodates three cars and is over 12 feet high.
This well-designed lifestyle property is one of Rockcliffe Park's finest dream properties.
