Presenting a one-of-a-kind Upper Mount Royal residence, custom crafted by Granville Homes and thoughtfully curated by McDowell & Associates – renowned for creating sophisticated spaces that will endure the test of time. The initial impression of the home exterior belies its interior since it gives the impression that the home has stood on the spot since the early 20th century. The residence showcases over 5,000 sq.ft. of living space and is defined by its distinctive Georgian charm, honoring asymmetrical roof lines, decorative jack-arched windows, transoms, brick cladding, manicured low-maintenance front gardens (with a five-zone irrigation system), a portico entryway, and airy interior living spaces. Outdoor lighting (in the retaining wall, by the entryway, in the exterior garage wall, and in two interior basement walls) is photocell or timer activated. Exquisite interior tailoring and thoughtful lighting complement the unique intricate millwork, crown moldings, pillars, arches, and mullioned windows, all of which offer an air of relaxed luxury and comfort within each room. The transitional floor plan flows seamlessly from the formal living and dining rooms and into the professional-grade kitchen and family room overlooking the serene stone-covered courtyard, enhanced by exterior light fixtures reminiscent of a European private outdoor space and is framed by towering spruces affording amazing privacy and serenity - perfect for hosting outdoor gatherings. Roughed-in electrical capability allows for more outdoor decorative lighting to be added if desired. The main level is complete with a powder room, spacious laundry room, and an elegant primary quarter, with an ensuite and walk-in closet, which also overlooks the courtyard. Ascend upstairs where you’ll find an intimate office space, a beautiful library, and a guest suite with its own private ensuite and walk-in closet. The lower level (with in-floor heating & 9ft ceilings) will continue to impress and is equipped with a comfortable TV room, wet bar, flex space, storage with built-in shelving (including a cold room with access to outdoor air), and an additional spa-like guest suite equipped with a large soaker tub and steam shower. The attached oversized double garage is conveniently accessed from the paved back lane and is large enough to house three vehicles. It boasts in-floor heating, hot and cold running water, a floor drain, and three opening windows. Stairs from the garage to the lower level allow for ready access through the workshop to the large bright mechanical room, a room which never fails to draw accolades from maintenance workers. This home could be a perfect nest for empty nesters, where adult children may visit periodically, or may appeal to a couple with one or two teenagers, each of whom would enjoy a bedroom enhanced by a full ensuite bath and generous closet space. Rarely does a home of this caliber come on the market.
