Description:

The owner of this house bought it while standing in it the first time he saw it 40 years ago. He recognized the specialness of the architecture - details like the way the stair was situated, (making the house feel much wider than others of its width), and the elegant way the extension was added with some space on the side to allow the dining room to open to the garden and have natural light. He also noted that the back of the house faced townhouse gardens - including two double wide houses with enormous green space, and that the house was surrounded on both sides by townhouse gardens. He proceeded to do a complete and timeless renovation in impeccable taste, which he has updated over the years.

Unusual for townhouses of this size, this house has an elegant entrance foyer with powder room which leads to a charming dining room with working fireplace and a lovely exposure and natural light from the garden. The stainless steel chef's kitchen is actually a chef's kitchen as the owner is a chef! But he loves to have people visit with him while he's cooking, so there's room for a table. With a big south window over one of the two sinks, as well as doors to the pretty brick garden, the kitchen is functional and also happy and bright.

A beautiful, wide staircase to the parlour floor leads to the living room which has 12 foot ceilings and a wood burning fireplace. The living also has direct access to a terrace facing townhouse gardens rich with trees.

On the south side of the parlour floor is a wonderful, sun-flooded library, also featuring a fireplace, with casement windows and floor to ceiling built-in bookshelves along both walls.

The entire next floor is comprised of the expansive primary bedroom suite, where another fireplace and balcony create a European feel. The wood panelled primary bath, adjacent spacious sitting room and generous closets make this level feel like a wonderful hotel suite in the most charming hotel.

The third floor offers two spacious bedrooms with great ceiling height and bright and tree filled exposures, each with its own bath.

The fourth floor is comprised of another bedroom with bath as well as a room currently used as an office with a kitchenette and yet another terrace.

The full height, built-out basement with laundry room complete this very special house.

The house has central ac and mechanicals are up to date.
