The foyer provides an inviting entrance for family and guests with wall to wall original solid oak wood paneling and joinery, the staircase and floors following suite, meticulously preserved, creating warmth and a sense of place. To the right of the staircase, enroute to the kitchen and family room is a powder room.
One may access the formal dining room the foyer which comfortably seats 8, and where family and friends alike gather to enjoy the convivial atmosphere and expansive outlooks to the front grounds and gardens encapsulated by the glorious high hedges.
There is no shortage of welcoming ambience as you enter the living room through walnut French doors and are greeted by a glorious wood burning fireplace with a stately solid wood hearth. Two sets of French doors open up to a quaint flagstone patio backing onto the very lush and manicured grounds of the backyard.
Cooking in the kitchen is such a delight with the gas stove, ample cabinet space, with an integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator, stainless steel dishwasher, granite counters, and a centre island with convenient breakfast bar. To the right of the island is a bright informal eating area with a view of your enchanting gardens and outdoor pool. There is a cozy family room across from the dining area, perfect for relaxing after a meal, reading the paper or for playing board games. Between the kitchen and family room is a small walk-in pantry, perfect for storing yummy snacks for movie night. There is a conveniently located mudroom off of the Kitchen with access to the backyard, covered separate garage and the pool house.
The Den, located at the center, back side of the house, has a beautiful unobstructed view of the backyard through a large bay window. The perfect seating area for afternoon tea or an evening cocktail over a game of chess. Featuring a stone, wood burning fireplace with built in custom wood entertainment cabinets on each side.
There are so many possibilities for the roomy lower level. At the bottom of the stairs, accessed from the front foyer is a lower landing separating the rec room from the den and nanny suite.
To the right French doors open up to a large open recreation room with a recessed tray ceiling. Classic solid wood paneling on all four walls and a wood burning fireplace add warmth to the space. This spacious room would make a fabulous and fun games room with loads of room for a snooker table or pool table, foosball and more. If movies are more your style, this space would be easily converted into a home theatre.
Adjacent the rec room is a den that could also work well as a home gym, already equipped with a bathroom with tiled shower. Accessed from the den, or from a separate entrance from the backyard is a self-contained nanny suite, complete with kitchenette and full bath. The laundry room is situated just outside of the nanny suite.
