BATHROOMS /HALF BATHS: 2 / 1
This sophisticated masterpiece is a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary architecture. The home was recently redesigned and rebuilt to offer the best of all worlds. The exterior was carefully restored and enhanced to showcase the superior early 1900’s Craftsman style details, while the interior was opened up to create a serene contemporary open concept space. The home is perfectly positioned on a beautifully landscaped waterfront lot, offering striking views of the Niagara River. The dramatic windows on all sides of the home provide abundant natural light from all directions and create a constantly changing ambiance.
The tremendous attention to detail and continuity of design is evident in every space throughout the home, starting with the main entrance through a gorgeous solid wood door with stained glass sidelights. High quality custom finishes reflect the natural elements that surround the property to create a warm and tranquil atmosphere.
The generous main floor provides an exceptional layout and flow for entertaining or casual living and offers many unique architectural features including European white oak floors, custom glass, millwork and cabinetry. The spacious great room includes a marble clad gas fireplace, flanked by macassar ebony cabinets with a built-in TV above framed in dark stained walnut.
The professional grade kitchen has grey stained walnut cabinets, built-in appliances and an imposing island with Brazilian Arabescato quartzite countertops and a large overhang for seating. A formal dining room is the ideal place to entertain guests or simply enjoy a peaceful family dinner.
A light-filled solarium off the kitchen has been restored to create a wonderful home office or den and is a perfect place to be inspired or just relax while gazing at the stars. A glamorous powder room with a black onyx vanity and glass vessel sink is also located on the main floor.
A floating staircase with open risers and a custom glass and stainless steel stair rail leads to the second floor with a double height cathedral ceiling, large skylight and spectacular chandelier – one of many unique light fixtures throughout the home. A catwalk, open on both sides and a glass bridge allow the natural light to envelope the space.
Double doors open to the sumptuous and serene master bedroom with cathedral ceilings, a private terrace and a panoramic view of the lovely garden and Niagara River. This elegant and luxurious retreat is complete with a 5-piece ensuite and large walk-in closet. The stunning master bath offers a glass enclosed curbless shower for two, with marble clad walls and flooring, a sculptural soaker tub to enjoy the water views, heated floors, a custom sapele mahogany vanity and medicine cabinet, wall-mounted faucets, double sinks and Grigio Fior Di Bosco marble countertop.
With two additional bedrooms and an elegant custom guest bath on the second floor, this home is perfect for a family or sophisticated couple that love to entertain.
The well-landscaped private rear garden includes a large covered terrace off the kitchen, a deck for enjoying the sun, a lovely pond and a glorious well equipped outdoor kitchen with built-in appliances overlooking the river. The home also has a detached two-car garage.
For additional comfort, the home includes a multi-zone audio system with built-in speakers, home automation with integrated security, cameras, temperature and lighting control, as well as two furnaces and central air conditioners.
This is a home impeccably designed and a masterpiece of modern living and craftsmanship. Located in the heart of the Niagara lifestyle, the home is surrounded by wineries, parks, first class dining and entertainment. It is an easy commute to Toronto or the US.
