I just finished uploading this Luxury Family Home, 186 St. Leonards, Toronto ON
This classic and stately center-hall stone and brick home has been designed for elegant living and entertaining. It is both formal and unintimidating. The plan allows for effortless circulation with gracious room sizes and maximization of natural light. This is a truly functional and practical, large, family-oriented Lawrence Park home. High ceilings enhance the spacious rooms. The home features a gracious foyer leading to a classic Georgian staircase connecting through to a mudroom and side entry. Deep plaster crown moulding, wainscoting, limestone flooring and halogen lighting make for a notable first impression. The living and dining rooms are both elegant and formal with generous windows, rich Brazilian cherrywood floors, deep plaster crown mouldings and halogen lighting. A gracious wood and marble wood-burning fireplace completes the living room with beautiful wainscoting complimenting the dining area. A spectacular great room features kitchen cabinets with solid maple doors, granite countertops, a large island counter with hidden storage cabinets, a pullout garbage/recycling drawer, and seating space. North -facing windows with French doors, built-in book/entertainment shelves and a pantry armoire are all perfectly integrated by Brazilian cherrywood flooring, deep plaster crown mouldings, halogen lighting and a gracious wood-burning fireplace crafted from quality stone and wood to make this space a truly “great room”. A library and powder room complete the main floor. The second floor master bedroom features north-facing windows, Brazilian cherrywood flooring, and plaster crown mouldings framing a high, hipped ceiling. A wood-burning fireplace and 7-piece ensuite bathroom featuring floor heating, AirJet bath with hand-held shower, glass shower stall with body jets, and limestone flooring creates a very special personal space. Four additional bedrooms all with plaster crown mouldings and halogen lighting as well as two additional bathrooms with stone flooring, plaster crown mouldings and halogen lighting complete the second floor. The lower level boasts a 1,000 Sq. ft. activity room with gas fireplace, a billiards hall, an office/nanny area, a spa and sauna, a hobby/utility room, a laundry room with slate floors and clothes folding counter and a three piece bathroom with plate glass shower. There is halogen lighting throughout the lower floor. A most impressive property in the heart of a distinguished neighbourhood!
