Unrivalled Old Village Location
Impeccably maintained and meticulously renovated, this classic home is situated in a prime Old Village location, steps to the schools and The Rockeries park. Surrounded by beautiful ambassadorial residences and private homes on large lots, this home is on a fantastic and desired street. The approach is spectacular, with the property commanding tremendous curb appeal. From its stone exterior, to the picturesque stone retaining wall out front, this home is just gorgeous. The circular driveway is perfect for hosting guests and there is an additional back driveway for personal use.
Throughout, the home has original elegant features that have been retained and restored, including elaborate vent grates and storm shutters. The gorgeous hardwood floors on the main floor have just been completely refinished (fall 2019). The layout is conducive to entertaining and family living. The front foyer has a gorgeous stone feature wall with recessed alcoves. The large living room has a fantastic wood-burning fireplace and garden views. It opens onto a pretty sunroom with marble floors, off of which is a three-season screened-in porch that takes advantage of the private, treed backyard. The backyard is private with lush trees. There is a beautiful deck with a built-in bar and barbecue area offering counter seating.
The spacious dining room has beautiful details, including lovely moulding, fabulous arched entryways and leafy garden views. The main door is flanked by display shelving. The granite kitchen is open to the family room with gas fireplace. The kitchen has stainless appliances and a large centre island with counter seating. There is also a desk area.
There is a large exercise room on the main level, which could also be used as a second study. Also on the main floor are a convenient mudroom and a powder room.
The second floor is home to five or six spacious bedrooms. The master suite has garden views. Lined with closets, the room offers a dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with a soaking tub and a shower. There are four additional bedrooms, two of which have their own ensuite bathrooms, as well as a family bathroom. There is also a fabulous study with streetscape views.
The home overlooks the hedged back gardens of a private ambassadorial residence on acres of land. As such, the views from the front windows of this home are of a foliage-laden, hedged backyard. This ensures privacy and beautiful views from every window, while those from the back and side windows are of the home’s own gardens.
The basement has just been redone and has a huge recreation room which enjoys natural sunlight. There is also a hobby room, storage space and a pretty powder room.
This incredible family home is situated in a prime location, second to none. Walk to area schools, as well as Beechwood Village and fantastic biking and walking trails. Live beautifully in this energy-efficient Rockcliffe Park home!
