Staging a million dollar listing! We just loved this beautiful new build home! Fantastic finishes, great kitchen and huge master bath. Large covered patio with a great yard.
Arrive in this cultured neighbourhood in St. Catharines and immediately notice the street scape; mature trees forming a natural colonnade, gentle serpentine curves of the boulevard, the ample mid-century lot sizes and surrounding architecture ~ all is subtle grace and generous proportion, refined, and timeless.
10A is newly built in an already established neighbourhood; truly the best of all possible worlds. Both sympathetic to its environs and unmistakably contemporary, this custom design unfolds gently from the street, placed carefully on the lot to balance the neat front lawn with the lovely terraced rear yard. Approximately 4000 square feet of carefully designed living space, this home is a showcase for architects and craftspeople showing pride in their talents and trade.
The first of many charming moments, the front entrance is a delight, refracted light bursting into tiny rainbows in the cut glass transom and sidelights. Stepping into the entry hall, notice the open, bright nature of this home. Points of light sparkle from lofty heights, sunlight streaming in from windows dances off gleaming surfaces, flames flicker in the full-height stone fireplace; this home puts its brightest perspectives first, united with a cool, calm palette. Such a fresh, welcoming feel!
The main floor is cleverly laid out; bedroom wing tucked away past the den/formal dining to the right of the entry, kitchen/great room with its incomparable view of the patio and terraced yard beyond stretching off to the left. Entry from the garage provides immediate access to laundry and a 2-pc powder room. Visitors will naturally gravitate to the kitchen island, eager to join in conversation with a host immersed in culinary magic, or may linger in front of the fireplace, content to lounge in the livingroom but still very much a part of things. The fusion of textures from this central vantage point support visually interesting tableaus in all directions – windows full of light, fireplace faced in stone, appliances with their gleaming brushed metal faces, fine cabinetry indoors, natural wood outdoors.
The kitchen boasts excellent taste in appliances and materials – Bosch, Samsung, stone counters, upgraded cabinetry, a kitchen workstation. The view through the eat-in area is exceptional, out the broad window wall to the rear yard, terraced down to the running Spring Garden Creek lowlands.
The master suite includes a generous walk-in closet, luxurious 6-pc ensuite with a gleaming shower enclosure, decadent soaker tub and twin sinks topped with manufactured stone, Crown moulding throughout. Beauty is revealed in the details here.
The second bedroom’s view is the beautiful tree-lined street, and shares its 4-pc bath with the main floor occupants. Conveniently placed in the bedroom wing, privacy is assured but convenience is achieved with a passage to the den/formal dining room from the hallway.
A sleek hardwood and wrought iron partnership lead the main staircase down to the lower level, with its full-height ceilings and equally sharp floor-to-ceiling stone-clad fireplace. Finished, with infrastructure in place to accommodate an additional full kitchen or bar, this lower level is ready to meet any demand – in-law suite, recreational needs, the possibilities are limited only by imagination. Separate entrance from the garage/side entry and walk-out to the stacked poured concrete patio and lovely rear yard. Laundry, cold cellar, exercise room, 2 additional bedrooms and 1.5 baths round things out.
This home has received the attention of a skilled designer and master craftsmen; the finishes are exquisitely executed, and everything is very tastefully done. Truly a lovely home, in a lovely neighbourhood.
