This fabulous French Provincial home is located on prestigious Crescent Road amongst many significant Rockcliffe Park residences. It is arguably one of the most elegant and private homes in the Old Village of Rockcliffe Park, and offers a rare opportunity to obtain a freshly renovated, newer-construction residence in this private and desirable location. It has just undergone a spectacular update of the kitchen, dining room and family room as well as the second floor bathrooms.
This home is designed for both family living and formal or informal entertaining. The principal rooms are voluminous with 10-foot 3-inch ceilings and generous dimensions. Architectural details abound - elegant moldings and baseboards, radiused corners, custom limestone fireplaces, imported Spanish wrought iron staircase railings, hardwood and limestone floors, and custom doors and over sized windows with beautiful mullions, to name but a few. The kitchen was handcrafted by custom cabinetmakers with great attention to detail. The appliances are state-of-the-art and include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 48-inch GE Monogram gas range with two ovens, Miele cappuccino/espresso maker, microwave drawer and walk-in pantry. The large centre island and countertops are white honed granite that contrasts spectacularly with the island’s dark wood cabinetry and hardwood floors. The kitchen also has a beautiful walk-in pantry with California Closets built in shelving and its own entry. The south-facing kitchen and family rooms conjoin to capture the western light via a panorama of French doors that open to a spectacular vista - flagstone deck, pool and terraced gardens. The dining room is large and overlooks the beautiful front gardens. The living room is expansive, beautifully appointed and features an arresting custom limestone fireplace. A mud room and walk-in pantry are located off the kitchen, which has its own entry for convenience and privacy.
The second floor surprises with its high ceilings and large bedrooms. As for the main level, all floors are quarter-sawn oak. It is accessed by an elegant, wrought-iron-railed staircase overlooked by a spectacular feature window above the landing. The master bedroom suite is large and entered via a mahogany double-door entrance. It features a walk-in closet with California Closets built-ins and a newly updated ensuite bathroom with her and his sinks, new white soaking tub and custom furniture grade cabinetry. The ensuite bathroom has beautiful views overlooking the back gardens and pool.
The basement is beautifully finished with a recreation room with fireplace, fitness room, fifth bedroom, full bathroom, and walk-in cedar closet.
The gardens are terraced, rising to the back of the property, and beautifully landscaped to ensure complete privacy. This is one of the most private homes in the area. The back deck is of flagstone, runs the length of the kitchen and dining room, and is protected by a glass canopy supported by imposing columns. The gunite pool is beautifully designed and features a hot tub, waterfall and flagstone surround. There is a pool house with bathroom and playhouse and a garage at the side of the property, giving excellent storage space for outdoor equipment. There is the possibility of addition 1800 square feet to the residence which would allow for expansion of the garage.
This beautiful property has outstanding curb appeal, a fabulous location and is in move-in condition.
