Elegance abounds in this stately and resplendent residence located at a most coveted address in the upscale neighbourhood of Lawrence Park. From the dramatic stone façade to the meticulous craftsmanship and design within, this spectacular home was built by Sherwood Custom Homes, renowned builders of some of the most distinguished homes in this area.

The sophisticated principal rooms are perfectly proportioned providing an exceptional layout for formal entertaining with a grand living room and dining room with servery for hosting large scale dinner parties and celebrations. The chef’s kitchen with a gorgeous eat-in dining rotunda and adjoining family room provide the perfect space for casual gatherings and quality family time. Walls of windows overlook the lush rear garden with French doors walking out to a stone patio complete with a barbecue and a professionally landscaped yard that is fully fenced in making it perfect for children and pets.

Luxuriate in your exquisite and private master suite with French doors which open to a Juliette balcony providing tranquil views of the rear garden and treetops. A richly paneled dressing room and a spa inspired 5-piece ensuite complete this beautifully appointed adult retreat. A custom designed vaulted skylight bathes the second floor in natural light and with four additional bedrooms, two additional washrooms plus a fully finished lower level, this is a wonderful and welcoming family home.

The location is ideal and within walking distance to the top rated Blythwood Junior Public School and the many beautiful green spaces in the area including Cheltenham and Sherwood Park. This central Toronto neighbourhood is also very convenient to both transportation and the shopping and restaurants along the Bayview, Yonge and Mt. Pleasant corridors. Nearby schools and facilities include the Granite Club, Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto French School, Crescent School, Branksome Hall, Upper Canada College, Havergal College, Glendon College, Summerhill Market and the new “Whole Foods”. It is also an easy commute to downtown Toronto or Highway 401.

Welcome home to this quintessential Lawrence Park residence with 5+1 bedrooms, 5 washrooms and a rare built-in 3-car underground garage (which translates to larger square footage on the main floor) with heated driveway and side stairs. In combination with the lower level complete with a recreation room, games room with adjoining wet bar, wine cellar, exercise room or nanny suite, 4-piece washroom and ample storage areas, the house totals 6,081sf in prime Central Toronto. A home of this square footage on a 50’ x 150’ lot with a 3-car underground garage is virtually impossible to replicate today. Everything is done…simply move in, relax and enjoy!
