This luxurious London home with classic European styling, is located on a private street in a quiet, treed enclave adjacent to the Thames Valley Golf Club. With high-end finishes and extensive unique features, such as the only residential copper roof in the city, this remarkable home is ready to embrace a new family.
Located on a privately maintained cul-de-sac with only eight homes, this small, friendly community offers the peace and privacy of a country setting while only minutes away from downtown, Western, University Hospital, shopping, and other amenities. Walk out your front door to access the pedestrian bridge across the Thames to city-wide walking and bike trails along the river.
Entering the home through the solid double Brazilian walnut (Ipe) doors, you’ll be struck by the spaciousness of the open concept main floor design. Floor-to-ceiling windows, with UV coating, are complemented by skylights in the cathedral ceiling that fill the home with light. Mature trees including magnolias and redbuds at the rear and formal landscaping in the front add natural beauty. The design and materials reflect an artisan’s sensibility throughout. Thanks to the orientation of the house and trees that surround the rear of the property, one feels very private.
The large living room has a gas fireplace clad with soapstone and stainless steel. Maple hardwood floors with radiant heating give warmth and comfort throughout. The kitchen offers tons of workspace on granite counters, including an island that doubles as a breakfast bar. There is abundant storage in high-end cabinets and a pantry cupboard with sliding shelves, plus an impressive amount of additional storage nearby in several main floor closets. A brand-new Miele oven and dishwasher, a Dacor gas range, and a full-size Sub-Zero fridge and freezer side-by-side are top of the line. The layout includes walkout access from the dining area to a terrace with stone slab deck and built-in BBQ grill – ideal when you’re hosting family and friends and enjoying al fresco meals in the warmer seasons.
The primary bedroom has large windows and a skylight plus a brand-new stunning four-piece ensuite that is truly spa-worthy: with a stand-alone soaker tub and separate shower, custom walnut vanity, quartz counters, and porcelain flooring. As you would expect, there is also a generous walk-in closet with custom built-ins.
Down the hall there is a three-piece bath, plus a bedroom/study. This large room includes a custom-made cherry desk, bookshelves, and cabinets with thoughtful details like soft-close drawers.
The main floor laundry includes a Miele washer and dryer, laundry sink, Corian counter, upper and lower cupboards plus a double closet.
You can access the large 3 1/2 car attached garage from the main floor or a separate stairwell from the lower level. More than just a place to park your vehicles, the garage has an epoxy floor with radiant heating and space for a fully equipped workshop. The workspace includes a stainless-steel sink and counter plus many wall cabinets for storage. There is 240V service and an electrical sub-panel that is ready for a Level 2 EV charger.
The open concept lower level has floor to ceiling windows and walkout access to a fenced garden and patio. The large family room includes a home office with custom cabinetry and desk. And there’s plenty of room for entertainment including a semi-circular copper-topped bar with undercounter cabinets, wine fridge, side by side fridge with freezer, and another Miele dishwasher.
The lower level includes a bedroom with four-piece ensuite. There is another three-piece bathroom with steam shower and large walk-in dressing room with built-ins. In addition, there is a big exercise room with a hot tub. Down the hall is a separate craft/hobby area with stainless steel counter and built-in cabinets. The separate large mechanical room has additional shelving and storage space.
The entire home, including the garage, has radiant heated floors, zoned by room. Each level is serviced by its own dedicated HVAC system, including radiant heat, air exchangers, forced air and air conditioning. There is a water softener and UV water treatment system, and six digital security cameras outside and two inside. Both levels have commercial quality wi-fi access points installed for fast, consistent coverage. There are in-ceiling speakers throughout the home.
