Enter through a gracious portico into a welcoming vestibule flanked by a formal cloakroom and a powder room. The elegant front hall opens through double doors into the sun-filled dining and living rooms. Both rooms afford double door access to the private backyard, which features a stone patio with a barbecue and gas-heated swimming pool and whirlpool with pool house.
The large and elegant - yet comfortable - living room is ideal for family get-togethers or for entertaining guests. With a gas fireplace, and windows on three sides, this room has a special 'wow factor.'
Through the swinging door from the dining room, is a butler’s pantry/wet bar and beyond that is the large, warm and sunny fully-equipped eat-in kitchen, with an indoor barbecue and a warming oven. Glass double doors lead to a side veranda, where you can sip your morning coffee overlooking the garden and, beyond that, a quiet back lane.
Off the kitchen are the laundry and powder rooms, as well as a back hallway leading to the triple garage.
The large and cozy den/family room is off the other side of the kitchen, featuring windows on two sides, and is ideal for an evening watching movies or reading a book.
There are two staircases to the upstairs, and off to one end of the upstairs landing is a phenomenal master bedroom ensuite. The bathroom has all the features of a spa, including a stand-alone tub, a steam shower, heated bath towel bar, heat lamp, gas fireplace and private bidet. A vanity table and large walk-in closet complete the sense of luxury and spaciousness.
Two other bedrooms - one with an ensuite, the other with direct access to another full bathroom - are located at the other end of the hallway. The fourth bedroom (or upstairs den) completes the second floor. Large closets galore, plenty of windows and hardwood floors ensure space and elegant living for all.
Leading upstairs from the second floor is a very large, three-roomed teenagers’ dream or nanny suite, consisting of a living room with a skylight, bedroom and large walk-in closet.
The basement is bright, dry and ready for your choice of flooring finish. It consists of a media room with huge wall-mounted television and stone gas fireplace, a wine room, furnace room with two modern gas fireplaces, two hot water tanks and plenty of storage space, including a cedar closet.
Just on the market, this lovely home is available now for the first time in over fifteen years for the discerning family seeking a relaxed, yet elegant, home to be cherished now and for generations to come.
