Victorian Secret

Detached 3 storeys of restored glory, can no longer be a secret. Hello Euclid, goodbye heart. There aren’t enough characters allotted here (or adjectives) to describe this complete dream space. Original details (crown mouldings, ceiling medallions, 12” baseboards, fireplace – yes it works!) alongside sexy modern sensibilities: Thermador 6 burner range + warming drawer/microwave, SubZero fridge, library ladder for built-in shelves in dining area and 2 car garage with electric car charger. Practical main floor WC, 2nd floor kids bedroom ‘wing’ with huge family room/playroom/ possible extra bedroom. The final arrow in your heart is the jaw dropping 3rd floor suite with approx 14’ ceilings, built-in closets, ensuite “throne room” & walk out to private, sunny, city facing terrace. In case you’re looking for more reasons to stay up there, there is a cedar hot tub to enjoy year round. This is it everyone: actual downtown house nirvana. Drop everything you are doing right now and come see this today. This house rules!

Things to Love | Sellers’ Words
