On the corner of coveted Lake Street, this grand, gorgeous family home is a beautiful find. Standing out amongst a row of lush, landscaped front gardens, a grand circular stone staircase sweeps you up to the magnificent casement front door. The gracious foyer is both inviting and impressive, with incredible white paneling details, decorative moldings and soaring ceilings. Stepping into the formal living room, light streams in through oversized windows, illuminating hardwood floors and a striking fireplace with stone surround. The house being situated on a corner allows for sunlight from all directions and the rooms all have a light, airy and open feel. The floorplan flows excellently into a beautiful formal dining room, comfortably seating twelve and with windows facing greenery from the tree-lined street.
Moving towards the back of the home you enter the kitchen / family room, which has both south and west-facing windows and is bathed in sunlight. The kitchen has been remodeled with stylish Carrera marble backsplash, stainless appliances including Viking gas range and hood and Bosch dishwasher, farmhouse sink, honed stone countertops and modern white cabinetry. The adjacent family space has a breakfast bar and ample room for a full-size breakfast table or play area. Through large glass doors one can step out onto the south-facing wood deck, perfect for BBQing, with outdoor lighting, awning, and stairs down to the level yard. On this floor is also a large powder room with Carrera marble floors.
Ascending the grand staircase, with a large skylight overhead, you reach the residential floor of the home. Situated at the front of the house, the master bedroom is enormous, with space for a king bed as well as a formal seating area. Framed by oversized bay windows, the room is flooded with natural light. A walk-in closet provides ample storage and the master bathroom boasts a Jacuzzi tub, large separate shower, and double vanity. Two more spacious bedrooms on this floor are served by a hallway bathroom with chic black and white and subway tile and a rain shower over tub. Also on this floor is a quiet office which could be used as a nursery.
The lower floor of the home could be a self-sufficient guest suite, including a large family room with separate street entrance, enhanced by built-in cabinetry and closets, as well as a guest bedroom and bathroom with shower and farmhouse sink. A glass door leads out to the large level backyard, paved with stone and surrounded by lush landscaping. The area under the deck is covered and there is a large open patio that gets fabulous southern sunlight. On this floor is also a convenient laundry room with Miele washer/dryer, sink, and folding station, and access to the roomy one-car garage with storage.
Details like stained glass windows, beadwork, and decorative moldings add grace and charm to this elegant residence, completely updated for today’s needs with contemporary upgrades throughout and with enough space to comfortably house a large family for years to come.
