Take a drive through the lovely, flat plateau of Sunset Gardens and find yourself on the very picturesque street called Tall Tree Lane. Admire the mixture of architecture, the kids outside playing and running between houses in the old-fashioned manner of simpler times, as well as adults out enjoying the neighbourly vibe, and you will come upon a very special home with a European style to it. What you will find is a classic Lewis Post and Beam that has been taken back to the studs, raised, added to, and transformed by the renowned architect Francis Schmitt.
A rebuild that exudes quality, style, and a unique rustic elegance, this home is One of a Kind. From the solid fir windows throughout, to the vaulted ceilings, to the heated concrete floors to the handsome limestone fireplace, the kitchen / great room is truly the heart of this home. Prepare to be taken by the magic created inside and lose track of where you are, until the stunning mountain views out your kitchen windows bring you back to life in Sunset Gardens.
The kitchen, with its 6 burner Viking gas stove and double oven, solid walnut custom cabinetry, extra deep marble counters, and elegant windows everywhere, is an inviting place for any chef to spend time in.
The sunken living room / dining room, with its solid fir floors and floor to ceiling black casement windows was designed to create a casual, inviting space with a European touch of style. The canvas allows for any style of furniture and the room size adds to the versatility.
Another generous sized room on the main to have a family room of your making, with room for a pool table and spacious sitting area.
Upstairs has retained the post and beam characteristics while creating a unique style w the large European windows, transom windows, a sunken level for two of the rooms and a dramatic landing midway upstairs. The master offers an ensuite, walk in closet and a lovely private deck overlooking the greenbelt setting behind.
With the new local high school Handsworth Secondary nearing completion and literally steps away, or Cleveland Elementary School a short walk the other way, this location allows you to offer some independence to your kids. Prepare for a warm welcome from the neighbours and quickly realize how fabulous it is to live amongst so many quality people. Living on the quiet cul de sac allows the kids a great sense of freedom for hanging out with each other in a safe environment.
The backyard flows beautifully out from the great room, the living room and the family room, offering a lovely extension of living space out. Peaceful privacy to enjoy the south facing greenbelt setting and a private zone in which to socialize or enjoy some pleasant solitude with a book or a glass of wine.
