Stylish, yet preserved of its character. That is what you will see in this stunning red brick Romanesque Revival house, built in 1892. It is stately and traditional on the exterior. This much admired home on one of Rosedale’s favourite streets has been completely renovated, and suits contemporary or traditional furnishings.
The most remarked-upon feature when visitors step through the door is how light-filled and airy it is. With the 12 foot-high ceilings and large windows on all sides of the house, the abundance of natural light offers a bright and cheerful environment to live in. It combines clean, contemporary lines with a traditional Rosedale elegance.
The living room features large arched leaded windows overlooking the stunning streetscape and a sleek wood-burning fireplace.
The dining room is large and dramatic. It can be used for formal occasions by closing off the pocket doors that lead to the family room, or open for casual family occasions.
The custom kitchen and family room stretch across the back of the house and overlook the beautiful back garden and pool.
The second floor features three large bedrooms, including a master suite with a large custom walk-in closet and huge marble-clad ensuite bath. The third floor is an ideal teen or guest floor, with three bedrooms, one with ensuite bath and large sunny rooftop deck.
The basement includes a private nanny suite, laundry room, rec room and wine cellar, and a large storage room.
The garden has a lap pool with child- and dog-friendly motorized cover, and a lovely outdoor garden room. There’s room for five cars in the private drive, which, along with the walkway, is heated so no snow shovel will ever be necessary!
This gorgeous home is on a 50 x 150 lot complete with garage, private drive and a lovely swimming pool to cool off in during the summer months. This is the perfect home for family living and entertaining. It is currently listed at $5,895,000. For more information on this listing, contact Susan Krever at (416) 925-9191
