This 5 bed 5.5 bath brick home was utilized as a secondary property and presents like new construction. Intentionally designed to maximize a sophisticated upscale aesthetic while offering functionality for daily life; every detail from the floor plan to appliances to the designer finishes has been meticulously planned and maintained.

The Au Pair suite is situated up the back staircase complete with ensuite. The privacy and spaciousness of this location also makes for a fantastic home gym, bonus family room, or teen hang - easily customize it to your needs.
The daylight unfinished terrace level provides a wealth of storage and is stubbed for a full bath. Finish it out to add a home theatre, in-law suite, and wine cellar. The attached two-car garage boasts epoxy flooring, a complete storage system, and direct access to the backyard.
The exterior breadth of this lot truly makes it a unique oasis in the heart of the city. Spend evenings by the fire on the screened porch while the pets or kids play in the private backyard. BBQ on the Trex deck, host Friday night fire-pits by the creek, take up gardening, or even consider adding a pool. The gently meandering creek runs around the back of the property adding to the enchanting ambiance and securing privacy on 2 out of 3 sides of this lot.
