This custom built 3200 sq. ft. 2 storey is located in a small enclave of executive homes in the heart of Hyde Park in a neighbourhood called Cantebury Estates.
Famous for its huge lots, this home backs onto extensive greenspace complete with walking and bike path, pond, playground and park!! Enjoy fabulous sunsets from your newer 2 tiered sundeck.
The owners had this one of a kind home built and have added an artist designed patio with inlaid stones and a distinctive fountain. The back corner of the lot has an adorable tree fort with hydro that the kids will love. It is even finished inside with sleeping berths for sleep overs.
Imagine camp fires and marshmallow roasts this summer after a bbq with family and friends.
The landscaping has been professionally done and recently updated to allow you to just move in and enjoy the yard. There is attractive outdoor lighting in the front yard and custom rod iron work both front and back.
The curb appeal is enhanced by the all brick front elevation and the 2 built out dual bay windows. And with this sized lot you will truly appreciate the 10 zone inground sprinkler system that was recently serviced.
Situated on the least travelled crescent in the neighbourhood, this residence is steps away to the playground and parkland with a huge duck pond. You can easily arrive at any of the 3 local malls within minutes of leaving this home. Enjoy Sherwood Forest, Hyde Park or Oakridge Malls.
This location is close to major transportation routes both north and south and east and west and enjoys close proximity to grade and high schools.
Once you step inside this home you will note that pride of ownership is evident throughout. The floor plan is open, sunny and suited to the growing family and those who love to entertain.
The foyer enjoys hardwood flooring and opens to the ceramic floored spacious pillared dining room. The entire family can enjoy Christmas dinner together this year in this good sized dining area.
The formal living room at the front of the house also makes a wonderful library or in home office. The custom built bookshelves can hold your office equipment or family keepsakes.
Along the back of the house is the oversized great room with lovely gas fireplace and wall of windows. This wonderful room opens to the eating area and the cupboard laden kitchen.
This area will definitely be the heart of the house. Wonderful for entertaining and family gatherings. The cook in the family will love the cupboard and counter space as well as the good sized pantry. The island offers additional food preparation space as well as doubles for a luncheon bar.
The window in the kitchen looks out on the backyard so you can watch over the little ones and the easy care ceramic flooring is accented by the custom backsplash.
There are 2 powder rooms on the main floor...one for guests and one at the back of the house off the deck that is perfect for the kids to use and fabulous if you plan to install a pool and hot tub.
The laundry/mudroom combo is ideal for the active family, its practical as well as attractive. You can access this room from both the kitchen, garage and back yard.
The gorgeous oak side staircase divides the dining and kitchen areas and allows for an open spacious foyer that most homes cannot accomodate.
With 3200 square feet on 2 levels this 2 storey provides you with lots of elbow room!
Up the staircase are 4 nice sized bedrooms. At the top of the stairs over the garage is the perfect office. With windows both facing east and west there is always lots of natural light allowing this area to be used as both a studio office or a bedroom. The gleaming hardwood sparkles when the flame from the corner gas fireplace hits it.
Up a single stair from here are 3 more bedrooms. The childrens rooms boast bay windows and a wonderful large window seat that is also used for storage. Both of these rooms have large walk in closets and enjoy an eastern view.
The double doored master retreat is super sized and can easily accomodate a TV area, office or library. Both mom and dad enjoy walk in closets and the spacious ensuite spa retreat has a relaxing whirlpool and unique layout making it an excellent getaway after a long week at work.
The lower level awaits your finishing touches with a roughed in bathroom, plus benefits from good sized windows making it ideal for completing. The owners had a good sized cold cellar added too.
Some of the other extras you will benefit from are the silent floor system, recently serviced central vac, roughed in alarm and smart wiring and a survey. The home is pet and smoke free too.
So if you are looking for a large lot that backs onto greenspace, if you love lots of space and enjoy an open concept floor plan that still offers enough privacy for everyone in the family, if you appreciate a great neighbourhood with friendly people and amenities that are close by without being on top of your home......hurry and call me as the homes I have sold in this area have never lasted very long!!!
