Home is where families come to dream about the possibilities. Constructed and renovated with family needs in mind, grand rooms are fit for large-scale entertaining, and comfort-first zones lend space that suits it all. Rockcliffe Park leaves an indelible mark on its residents – take comfort in raising children here. Exceptional community, coordinates, and comfort mean giving the kids the best comes second nature. Find entrance to Rockcliffe's beloved pond steps from the door; make summer memories to last a lifetime along the banks of the neighbourhood swimming hole, and do it without leaving the street.
On a picture-perfect lot perched in cul-de-sac seclusion, the home's vantage lies back from the road, allowing century-old trees to cloak the property in privacy. A circular driveway serves a multitude of guests with a dramatic sense of event. It comes together to set a convincing tone – echoed again and again throughout the home – live and entertain, do it in spacious style, and dividends will follow.
A dramatic two-storey entryway lends grandeur to a formidable impression – the curve of the solid wood staircase, open sights above. Turn to formal living and dining rooms, where space is long, but also impressively wide. With a wood-burning fireplace centre stage and large windows to the front and side, there's space for a baby grand piano and all the family and friends on the list. Mingling, schmoozing, dining - it happens here.
The kitchen's angular island and second sink pairs with a long expanse of cabinetry storage and pantry access – as a hard-working kitchen with daily comings and goings in mind, the work space and storage are exceptional. The side homework or scheduling station is one of two – 21st century families find the clever spaces valuable for charging electronics, checking recipes, or catching up on bills. An eat-in alcove overlooks the yard – south-facing and under the watch of 120 year old trees, low-maintenance outdoor living teams up with pure family fun to produce the perfect use of a yard. Long patio doors lead out to the primary level, perfect for outdoor dining. With interlocking stone underfoot, step up to a secondary level, ideal for lounging near the in-ground heated pool. Beyond, the yard's water feature adds ambient noise to naturally pleasant surroundings. The kids play, adults relax – summer is as it should be.
The family room's kitchen proximity lends the perfect kid-friendly hangout; nearby, the hallway powder room serves on the way to the main floor office or den – whether it's homework time for kids or office duties for mom and dad, the room sees lots of attention and keeps the resulting paperwork contained. Main floor laundry takes function to new heights – laundry noise is contained and within reach of garage entry – sports gear goes from car to washer in seconds.
Upstairs, 'the bridge' produces a clever feat of architectural engineering – with goals of expanding the second floor's usable living space, residents bridged the existing second floor with a naturally-lit, seamless transition to second floor sitting room and the specially-constructed billiard room beyond – a truly unique space for a home that lives and breathes one-of-a-kind living.
In the primary wing, three bedrooms serve with great proportions; in the full bathroom, marble underfoot and granite-clad his and hers sinks and oversized soaker tub reap the benefits of the bathroom's optical skylight – mirrors and clever design collude to produce sights of stars, trees, and natural light in incredible measure.
The master embodies the term 'suite' to its core – alcove seating space, an extensive walk-in closet, and an undeniably five-star ensuite yield a full-service space. The ensuite bathroom's heated marble floors lead to glass shower and two-seater Jacuzzi, cedar sauna and water closet. Granite countertops stretch past his and hers sinks to vanity seating – the result is fit for royalty.
In the basement, pair the three-piece bathroom with open family room and additional room for kids, extended family, nanny or guests. Cold storage and a large storage/workroom leaves the considerable space multi-purpose and highly usable. The home's position is exceptional – with no neighbours directly to front or rear and easy access to transit and Beechwood, the cul-de-sac is at once both secluded and highly accessible. Vast space in a compelling community – it serves the family well. Don't miss it!
