This is prime Mount Royal, surrounded by expansive, tiered front gardens and a much-prized south facing private rear garden, and just an easy stroll to the restaurants and shops of 17th Avenue and Mission/Cliff Bungalow areas. A major renovation in the past two years has created an elegant, relaxed home of charm, comfort and distinction. Stylish living areas seamlessly work together – an open plan kitchen and living room, a family den with sunny bay window seat overlooking the garden, and formal dining room with fireplace. Plus a bonus, ‘secret’ office hidden behind a clever millwork bookcase, sealed away from family life – perfect for Covid working from home needs and Zoom calls! Upstairs, this home boasts four bedrooms (each with own bathroom, the master ensuite with steam shower). On the main floor is a study, which could also be used as a fifth bedroom. Together with the ‘secret’ study, this home effectively has two offices which has huge appeal to home-working families, or children doing online schooling and needing peace and quiet. The chef’s kitchen offers a Wolf, SubZero, Miele appliance package, together with an expansive island and carefully planned, generous work spaces, ensuring plenty of room for family gatherings. Handmade encaustic tiles, specially imported, add style and colour to this convivial heart of the home, complete with double-sided fireplace. The living areas open up to a lovely porte-cochere-style patio, the perfect place for evening drinks which effectively works as an outdoor garden room. A 2262 square foot basement offers a large flex area, plus bar, and full bath. As a bonus, there is a second driveway access on the western side of the property together with a separate tandem single garage. Beneath the main house is a drive-in triple garage and well designed mudroom complete with dog bath. Book showing to see this beautiful home for yourself.
