Enjoy your coffee while watching the sun rise from your front porch - priceless! This unique jewel of a home was custom built in 2000 (Gren Weis design) to take advantage of its lakefront location. Across from Bronte Bluffs Park & the Bronte Harbour, it is secluded, quiet & private. Natural materials such as solid wood floors & doors, heritage fixtures & even a copper roof add character & interest. Note all of the high-quality fixtures and trim details, including the Kolbe windows.
It is open-concept living on the main floor. The custom chef's kitchen was designed to accomodate the most demanding of cooks : the high-end appliances include a 36" Viking dual fuel range, a SubZero fridge with 2 drawers, Bosch dishwasher. The breakfast bar serves for casual dining. The counters are limestone and butcher block. The pantry provides lots of additional work space, more custom cabinetry and a SubZero freezer. Windows & views in all directions.
The architectural feature in the living area is the wood-burning fireplace with the floor-to-ceiling rock surround and the limestone hearth. A mudroom off the front entry hides coats & backbacks. The pass-through here to the pantry is perfect for incoming groceries! 9' high ceilings on the main floor.
Natural light abounds throughout the home.
There are three spacious bedrooms upstairs. One of the two linen closets in the landing holds a laundry chute to the basement. There is even a small loft tucked at the top of a ladder in one of the bedrooms - a perfect hide-a-way for a tween. There are 2 full bathrooms including the master ensuite with its tiled shower and a claw-foot tub in the main bathroom. Along with a view to the lake, the master also as a walk-in closet. The solid wood doors on the second floor were all reclaimed from the original cottage on the property. This certainly adds to the character of this special home. Please note the vaulted ceilings, & of course, everywhere there are windows and views of the lake and the park.
Downstairs, the custom concrete floor is another unusual feature of this home. Radiant in-floor heating throughout the entire house ensures comfort & energy efficiency. Here you will find a family room with a wood stove to enjoy on winter evenings. The fieldstone of the surround has been carefully hand-selected. The current workshop could be a gym or crafts room. There is a large cold storage, as well as a root cellar. There is lots of natural light in this basement due to all of the windows - Including in the custom laundry room with its stainless steel worktable, sink and cabinetry. This is where the laundry chute ends! Ceilings are 8' high here.
