You are welcomed home by an old world charm provided by an Owen Sound granite exterior, copper topped extended portico and roof accents, and lush landscaping. This leads to a grand, 2-storey foyer – open to the cupola above – with its majestic double staircase. Extensive use of black walnut on the floors, staircase and main floor den creates much of the warmth and charm. Custom millwork abounds throughout the home, with crown moulding, paneling and archways. Built-in cabinetry adds beauty and functionality to every level.
The grand kitchen provides book matched, heated Italian marble floors and the finest appliances. It is further complemented by a summer kitchen, plus a servery. A handsome, temperature controlled wine room and marble-surround fireplace accent the chic dining room. The inviting and ruggedly sophisticated great room lives up to its name with a soaring, 2-storey ceiling and exposed pine beams, wood burning fireplace with floor to ceiling slate, a black walnut wet bar (fully serviced with slide-out dishwasher and bar fridge), and still leaves ample room for your grand piano.
Every bedroom in this stunning home is accompanied by an ensuite with heated floors. The opulent master bedroom walks out to a balcony, and nurtures its occupants with a romantic fireplace. The master further offers a dressing room plus a walk-in closet, a vaulted ceiling and a hideaway TV in a lift cabinet… all in addition to its lush, 5-piece spa inspired ensuite. A second den with built-in cabinetry and a beautifully finished laundry room are both conveniently located on the bedroom level. Display your finest pieces in the long, gallery hall with barrel roll ceiling.
An additional 5,121 square feet in the lower level houses the two-tiered, soundproofed theatre, expansive games and recreation rooms, another wet bar, a gym and an additional bedroom/nanny suite with ensuite bath.
On warm days, enjoy the 334’ deep lot in the backyard adorned with an infinity pool, hot tub, cabana and bar. On chilly evenings, continue to enjoy the outdoors by the fireplace on the terrace which offers retractable screens and skylight. A detached office is also located in the back, for the ultimate in privacy.
