Magazine Worthy! Your own Luxurious Lifestyle Retreat.

Incredible extra wide and extra deep 25' x 166' South facing lot with a "Garage Mahal" to top it off!

This 4 bedroom, 3 bath almost 3000 SF home is bathed in natural light. It is designed for entertaining and family living, upgraded with attention to detail for professionals seeking quality and style. All the toys, bells and whistles included! Just move right in and experience for yourself.

Highlights include lowered Basement with kick butt gym, gourmet Kitchen with open main floor, multiple Work from Home options, 2nd floor Laundry, Main floor powder room, 3rd floor Primary with lavish 5 piece ensuite.

Thoughtfully renovated throughout with top of the line finishes, there is functionality for both raising a family, or working from home, as well as a place to de-stress, relax, and enjoy time with friends.

Imagine hosting gatherings indoors in the gourmet chef's kitchen & open concept main floor as well as in the expansive backyard. There is no need to drive anywhere, to feel like you have a sanctuary within the city.

Gorgeous curb appeal with the handsome brick exterior & black trims. The charming enclosed front porch with classic mini pane windows is a bonus space to use in inclement weather or store the stroller or scooter safely, don winter clothing & stash pet or outdoor gear. Electric plugs are available too.

Upon entry, you'll find that while renovating, the owners were able to retain & blend in some of the best part of living in a mature neighbourhood like High Park with the 1904 classic original touches (think hidden pocket doors, leaded glass accents, trims) and elegant modern conveniences (sleek gas fireplaces, hidden custom built-ins, heated floors).

The state of the art kitchen features exceptional built-in appliances (see list), well designed with a separate coffee bar/pantry, back wall of windows, a pot-filler over stove, lots of counter / dining space and room to chat while cooking up a storm and keeping an eye on the little ones.

The "must have" main floor powder room is perfectly situated away from the action.

There are two walk-outs to the back yard from the main level, one through the dining room to the deck, and one halfway down to the lower level. Very convenient access to and from the kitchen, or the 3 fridges in the basement (including a 181 bottle wine fridge) and infrared sauna.

The open lowered basement with tall ceiling height also benefits from sunshine from the south wall of windows and doors. There is a large recreation area for kids play and/or use the currently super cool gym set up. There is a separate and serene office space that features an oversized window well with garden lighting and mature plantings.

The grounds including the rear south facing yard were featured in an architectural/landscape/design magazine. It was intentionally cultivated for no muss no fuss, low maintenance stone work, greenery and perennial gardens. Landscape designer Michael Dimitriadis, owner of Dimitriadis Design Build, created various landscaped areas for conversation, dining, and barbecuing. Intimate spaces for privacy or plenty of room for a party.

The backyard oasis continues to impress with a defining stone wall with built in large outdoor gas fireplace, irrigation system, outdoor lighting & outdoor sound system you can control from your phone. You'll find an extra large built-in Green EGG grill, for the BBQ master It's a complete outdoor cooking system engineered to be stronger, more durable and provide better heat retention.

And of course the piece de resistance, the 5-6 person hot tub / spa built right into the deck.


If garages can be sexy... come check this one out! The deluxe oversized insulated garage is a dream workshop, or use as extra counter/storage space when entertaining outdoors. It is equipped with WiFi, lined with pine walls and ceiling, tile floor, heated enough for storing items or using tools, built-ins galore plus fits 2 big SUV's.

Taking in the upper floors - you'll find 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. One has been converted into a luxe dressing room with custom built-ins, and can be converted back to a guest room or home office if desired. The 2nd large bedroom includes quality custom built-ins for the desk area and closet. A 3rd large bedroom with a closet will also easily fit a Queen. The renovated family bath on this level features cosy heated floors and a Jacuzzi tub. Major plus is the 2nd floor laundry, complete with heated floors, full size front loading machines, folding area and laundry sink.

Unwind in the outdoor hot tub or infrared sauna before retiring to the elegant & spacious primary suite encompassing the whole 3rd floor. Comes complete with a fireplace, lavish 5 piece ensuite with free standing soaker tub, double vanity & separate multi head shower, plus walk in closet.

Recent studies highlight the health benefits of infrared saunas that can even address long-lasting health problems at lower temps than regular saunas, making the included infrared sauna a very desirable bonus!!

Additional features of the home include a 20kw Generac Generator, ample storage, built-in Bose surround sound, and thoughtful touches like electrical outlets in bathroom vanities.

In the Sellers own words: "We love this light filled house, and the lush backyard is the best part. It's an oasis in the city.

From the Sellers: "The neighbourhood is warm, progressive, and inclusive. The neighbours know each other well and look out for each other. We have an annual Canada Day party, a summer street sale and a Facebook message group used to celebrate birthdays, look for a lost pet, borrow a cup of sugar, or get a car boost. Our neighbours are a mix of empty nesters, DINKs, young families, and families with tweens. There is a strong sense of community here."

Excerpts from the magazine article that featured the yard:

Built For Entertaining: High Park Backyard Redesign

Landscape designer Michael Dimitriadis, owner of Dimitriadis Design Build, came up with the layout solution. His design also helped create the illusion of more width in the narrow 166-by-25-foot garden. The dining space was laid out lengthwise while the lounge area behind it was configured crosswise, with a large overarching arbor to separate them. "This way, they can really entertain a lot of people back there," Dimitriadis says. "but when it's just the two of them, it also works."
A sound system embedded underground. Speakers provide background music in the dining and lounging areas, but are completely hidden from view. Lighting sources are also inconspicuous, with fixtures concealed in stone art pieces or tucked into shrubbery or ornamental grasses 4 stone art pieces housing some of the lighting.
