New England Elegance in Rockcliffe Park
This is one of Rockcliffe Park’s most well admired homes. Set on the corner of Manor Avenue and David Thomas Lane, this impressive home enjoys superb curb appeal. The house is well set back from the road and the home is well positioned on a lush 15,220 square foot lot with beautiful front and back gardens. Having been entirely redone in 2018, the home features a rare triple garage and a beautiful, resort-like backyard with a saltwater pool and pergola with a built-in outdoor kitchen.
The approach to the house is absolutely stunning. A long walkway with a feature fountain leads to the covered porch. The striking front door is mahogany, and the home opens to an inviting and warm layout with gorgeous European white oak floors, deep window sills and French doors with beautiful hardware. The large living room spans the depth of the home and enjoys a gas fireplace, drop ceiling with spectacular coffered details and a picturesque bay window that looks over the backyard. The large dining room offers access to the back patio. A stunning feature wine cellar offers elegant display space visible from the dining room. The fantastic kitchen enjoys counter seating, a beautiful built-in breakfast room nook and its own patio. With all Miele appliances, from two refrigerator / freezers to a Miele 6-burner cooktop, cappuccino / espresso maker and two ovens, the kitchen is every chef’s dream. The adjacent family room enjoys a built-in entertainment system and fabulous sunny backyard views. Also on the main floor are two powder rooms and an organized mudroom, which offers direct access to the triple garage.
The second floor has fabulous treed views from every window. The primary suite has a large designer walk-in closet and a dream ensuite bathroom with two sinks, a water closet, a soaking tub and separate shower and a vanity area. This bathroom also has heated flooring.
Each of the other three bedrooms enjoys its own ensuite bathroom with heated flooring. The second primary suite is luxurious with a private location within the home, a huge bedroom with a sitting area and an ensuite bathroom. There are two additional spacious bedrooms, each of which enjoys beautiful views and ensuite bathrooms. The sensational laundry room offers views of the front garden and is conveniently located. There is also a private office on the second floor.
The third floor is the perfect space to imprint your own vision. It would function well as an office, guest bedroom or home theatre / gym. The large open concept space offers beautiful views and a powder room. There is also a large room with a vaulted ceiling that could be insulated for yearround use.
This superb home has incredible lifestyle amenities, a wonderful layout and fantastic space for entertaining and living. Situated in a desirable Old Village location, this is a true Rockcliffe Park dream property.
