Stunning, Impeccably Renovated 3-Storey Single Home for Sale in the Glebe
SOLD! This stunning Glebe single home is an impeccably executed combination of old and new. Three levels of sublime spaces, craftsmanship and careful planning make this five bedroom home a rare find. Nothing has been overlooked in this renovation where architectural details are restored to their glory and modern amenities are all incorporated in an understated, meaningful way. The past is evident in the large principal rooms, restored wood panelling, wainscotting, stained glass windows, four fireplaces, baseboards and elegant stairway. The present is reflected in the heated floors of the stunning modern kitchen, four luxurious bathrooms, full master retreat and family room addition with its wall of glass that opens onto a perfect private yard. An attached garage with interior access, 3rd floor laundry room, generous closet space throughout, beautiful 2nd floor deck and highly efficient modern systems throughout bring this beautiful home into 2020 with more amenities than most and nothing left to be done.
The elegance of this home begins upon entering from the newly-built front porch through the original, heavy glass vestibule door into the formal parlour with its wood panelling, original fireplace mantle and wide, restored stairs. Original pocket doors lead into the grand living room with its beautiful stained glass windows and soaring ceiling. Beyond another pocket door is a large, grand dining room with its original built-in cabinets and ceiling beams. The efficiently designed, modern kitchen features granite counters, cabinets that go to the ceiling, high-end stainless appliances including a gas stove, two ovens and a handy pot filler. Choose to eat at the breakfast bar or kitchen table overlooking the back yard oasis. Direct access to the deck with gas outlet makes BBQ’ing easy. Beyond is an enormous family room with lux full bathroom for easily accommodating guests in their own private suite, or for washing up after coming in from the garden and access to the attached garage. A custom 5-panel glass door spans the length of the wall and when open, merges the indoor and outdoor space into one glorious room! Heated floors and a gas fireplace surrounded by built-ins offer a lovely focal point to this special space.
Directly across from the graceful staircase is a beautiful large room with restored wainscotting, another fireplace and oak french doors that lead to a sunny 4-season sitting room. This floor features three other bedrooms, each with generous closet space plus a fully renovated main bathroom with separate soaker tub, rain and handheld fixtures in the shower and marble tiles. A second sunroom provides access via french doors to a lovely second-level deck with privacy and access to a roof garden area.
Quality and light continue throughout the top floor. A full size laundry room with custom cabinetry that hides the high-end appliances, granite counter and a sink is spacious enough to incorporate another home office, studio or workshop. Extra storage is available in the attic via a lightweight, drop-down ladder. The master bedroom and attached den feature custom wainscotting, a lovely window seat and cosy gas fireplace. A hidden jib door leads into a fully custom walk-in closet with natural light, custom Laurysen cabinetry, Walnut drawer cabinet and granite counter. Then there is the award-winning, luxurious master ensuite! Featuring radiant floor heating and heated towel bar, a 2-person stand-alone soaker tub, walk-in, curb-less shower with rain and hand-held fixtures, custom walnut vanity with two sinks, and plenty of added storage. This master suite is a true escape!
In addition to the two cedar decks is a lovely patio surrounded by perennial gardens, raised beds and pretty stone retaining wall. A high cedar fence with copper post caps ensures total privacy. In the front yard are perennial plants and flagstone pathway to the rear, plus an automatic sprinkler system for easy maintenance. HUE controlled pot lights and inset LED lighting in exterior areas provide perfect lighting.
