Designed by a Scandinavian architect for his own home, influenced by the international and mid-century modernism of its time, this home offers the sort of contemporary character that only comes around once in a blue moon. Custom Hunter Douglas window treatments frame a spectacular view on both main and upper floors, enhanced by a 2022 sweeping upgrade of these expansive South and West facing windows, flooding the entire home with natural light. This large, flat-roofed home was designed intentionally to connect to the home’s natural surroundings. Raised above the street with deep cantilever canopy soffits, contemporary pillars and extensive outdoor living space, the home is privately tucked away care of lush vine, lilac, ashes and aspen greenery. Wide-plank red cedar hardwood installed in 2022 will appeal to those who appreciate genuine artisan hardwood craftsmanship. A free standing fireplace selected specifically to allow you to take in the view while enjoying its warmth, and a distinctive accented ceiling alcove complete the stunning living room. The windows and custom coverings, hardwood floors and fireplace were part of a recent $400,000 upgrade which also includes a brand new roof, gutters, downspouts, LED lighting, professionally installed home security, wood and baluster perimeter fencing, no-maintenance front rock garden landscaping, elevator and more! The elevator adds to the home’s adaptive living design which includes various other accessible yet understated features. The ramp is modular and can be easily removed before possession if not required. The presence of a walk-out caretaker/in-law suite (not legal) on the lower level, double attached garage, and rear parking pad adds further convenience and versatility. The newly painted exterior colour choice of mid-century Cherokee Red has a distinguished provenance in the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and beautifully complements the original hand-stacked stone siding. With its prime inner city location, it is w alking distance to excellent schools, shopping, entertainment, restaurants, walking trails and parks. You’ll enjoy a privileged view and location in this home that only residents at this plateau in this sought after neighborhood can enjoy. Come see this home and see what the fuss is about. PS: ask about the secret passage to the top rooftop patio if you really want to see a view!! (id:42493)
