The custom built brick and stucco one-owner home exudes a classic elegance.
The difference is in the design and the details. The floor plan beautifully unfolds as your tour the home, featuring a first floor master suite. Graciously sized rooms are well suited for entertaining, while offering wonderfully intimate spaces. The detailing in every room is exquisite from the incredible nuHaus kitchen, to the custom cherry library by Exclusive Woodworking, to the family room with coffered ceiling and custom built-in granite wet bar with hidden rollout liquor cabinets. The high-end details and amenities are enriched by the intrinsic quality of construction. The list goes on with stately fireplaces that have marble or granite surrounds and rich wooden mantles, Pella windows and doors, 3 ½” wide quarter sawn hardwood flooring, two story foyer with 24” patterned marble floor, Rutt and Downsview cabinets, volume ceilings, fine millwork, 6-panel solid core doors, designer lighting, and more. The gourmet nuHaus kitchen blends efficiency and beauty.
This ideal culinary space features a granite island with breakfast bar, extensive custom cabinetry, sunny breakfast area overlooking the backyard, tile backsplash, and dramatic plaster hood. The high-end appliances include a SubZero refrigerator, plus double refrigerator drawers in the island, Thermador six burner stove and griddle, Thermador double ovens and warming drawer, separate sinks with Phylrich & Grohe faucets, and two KitchenAid dishwashers. Additional first floor amenities include an attached three car garage with custom European cabinetry by nuHaus and an indoor faucet, butler’s pantry with wine fridge, two powder bathrooms, and a laundry or mudroom with a wash sink. The thoughtful detailing continues in the first floor master suite with the marble bathroom that has a double spa tub, Robern vanity with double sinks and “no fog” mirrors, and a steam shower with double showerheads and a shaving sink in the shower. Three graciously sized family bedrooms and two full bathrooms with double sinks, custom nuHaus cabinets, and skylights complete the second floor.
