When the beauty of nature combines with timeless elements of classical design, the sum is greater than its parts. Nestled on a quiet, family-friendly court near the East Credit River sits this beautiful oasis-like property lined with majestic mature trees, and graced with a spacious 2-storey home that melds the grandeur of years past with the functionality of the present.
The grand Scarlett O’Hara staircase delineates the house and sets the tone for the elegant & inviting living spaces within. The main floor offers formal living and dining rooms with rich hardwood flooring, crown moulding & expansive windows emanating natural light. The dining room boasts direct access to the huge sun-filled kitchen, with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, an island breakfast bar and double French doors leading out to the back deck. The warm family room also offers a double French door walkout the back deck, as well as a classic wood-burning fireplace, while the collegial office offers a double door entry and large window overlooking lush greenery.
At the top of the grand staircase you will find four sunlit sanctuaries, including a luxuriant master suite featuring a private sitting area, huge walk-in closet, and spa-inspired 5-piece ensuite with deep soaker tub, glass-enclosed walk-in shower with body jets, and double vanity with glass vessel sinks.
The finished lower level was designed for ease of entertaining. It highlights a vast open concept rec room with a high-end built-in audio system, and turns into a home theatre at the push of a button, that brings a motorized 90” down from the ceiling. The rec room is open to a wet bar complete with beverage fridge and dishwasher, and a versatile den/play room area. A fifth bedroom, 3-piece bathroom and generous storage spaces complete the lower level.
The crown in this home’s jewel is the sprawling West-facing backyard oasis. The orientation of the lot and the privacy imbued by the towering mature trees make this arguably the best backyard in the area. It’s pooled with sunlight all afternoon, and offers a sprawling deck, beautiful gardens, in ground irrigation, and secluded patio with a fire pit to keep you warm on cool, crisp evenings.
Though it feels like a cottage retreat, this incredible property is located just 5 minutes from virtually all amenities, including top-rated schools, Bidwell Trail Common, Credit Meadows Park, the Credit River, River Grove Community Centre, public transit, Heartland Town Centre, and charming Streetsville village.
