This large, three-storey detached home in an affluent family neighbourhood has been fully renovated — including a lower level in-law suite with a second kitchen.
Other high-end features include a walk-in pantry, white oak hardwood floors throughout, ensuites and walk-in closets in all four main bedrooms, a third-floor playroom and a built-in barbecue in the backyard.
“Our home is in the heart of the Deer Park neighbourhood, so we can easily access downtown for work from two different subway stops,” says homeowner Laura Chorneyko.
“The sense of community in Deer Park is extremely strong. Our street is host to activities such as Victoria Day fireworks, Easter brunch potlucks and holiday festivities,” says Chorneyko.
We built our home to fit the profile of our neighbourhood. Our house has large rooms and has accommodated many holiday parties, neighbourhood barbecues and play dates with our children,” she adds.
The home is walking distance from restaurants, cafes, shops, a library, and a large park; a walking trail is just steps away.
“This home is very unique in its design as the master bedroom suite is 700 square feet and comes with a large walk-in closet, built-in walnut and shaker cabinetry and an ensuite with an oversized shower stall, an air-jet tub and a TV,” says listing agent Heather Goulding.
“The living and dining rooms are full of architectural details including an eye-catching marble mosaic wall. Fully fenced, the backyard is professional landscaped with separate areas for eating and lounging, glass and stainless steel railings, a stone patio and a two-tier cedar deck,” adds Goulding.
The brick-and-stucco home has a peaked roof, large windows, decorative porch columns, front garden beds and a solid mahogany front door.
The foyer has an Italian ceramic tile floor, pot lights and a closet.
The adjacent living room is outfitted with a hardwood floor, full-wall wainscoting, wall sconces and a bay window.
Open-concept, the dining room is appointed with a hardwood floor, a designer chandelier, full-wall wainscoting and moulding, and a marble mosaic accent wall.
The kitchen showcases a centre island/breakfast bar, Caesarstone counters, a marble backslash, a walk-in pantry with a beverage fridge, pendant lights and stainless appliances. The adjoining breakfast area features a built-in bench and banquet table for up to 10 people.
Off the kitchen, the family room has a hardwood floor, a built-in media centre, a linear gas fireplace flush with a floor-to-ceiling marble wall, pot lights, and a wall of windows including a double garden-door walkout.
A powder room completes this level.
Highlights of the generous second-floor master bedroom include a hardwood floor, a large window, built-in cabinetry, a large walk-in closet with organizers, and a four-piece ensuited.
The second bedroom on this floor also has a walk-in closet, full-wall wainscoting, a hardwood floor, a bay window with a bench, and a three-piece ensuite.
There is an open office room off the landing with pot lights and a Marimeko wallpapered wall.
The third floor has two more bedrooms and a playroom. Both bedrooms feature hardwood floors, walk-in closets and ensuites. The playroom contains a chandelier and a built-in bookcase.
Fully finished, the lower level has its own hallway with a Travertine tiled floor and two double closets. The recreation room or guest bedroom has a laminate floor and double closet. As well, there is a kitchen and a three-piece bathroom.
