Nestled along a quiet street in Toronto’s prestigious Bedford Park neighbourhood, welcome to 490 Bedford Park Avenue, a custom-built home resplendent with stunning details and finishes.
Natural stone steps with a wrought iron handrail lead up to the grand front entryway, which opens to a centre hall design with remarkable sight lines.
The marble-tiled entry hall is open to the formal dining and living rooms, which showcase waffled and coffered ceilings with pot lighting; custom window treatments; a gorgeous chandelier in the dining area; and a gas fireplace with custom plaster mantle in the living area.
A home office with a walk-out to the front patio, custom window treatments, and built-in shelving is found off the entry hall - as is a double coat closet, and a powder room with a custom vanity as well as marble and natural stone tile finishes.
Surrounded by custom built-in cabinetry with niche lighting, an open concept gas fireplace spreads its glowing warmth in the family room, and through to the adjacent kitchen area.
Both stunning and functional, the gourmet kitchen features a custom island with breakfast seating and sink; granite counter tops and natural stone back splash; custom cabinetry; and stainless steel double sink as well as high-end stainless steel appliances. The breakfast area walks out onto a raised deck, which steps down to a fully fenced and very private backyard with a separate patio area, and a garden shed built on a concrete padding 4 ft’ deep into the ground. Wired for sound, built-in speakers are also found in the backyard, as well as throughout the main level.
Other stunning features of this home include custom millwork; oak hardwood flooring; remote controlled window treatments in the family room, kitchen, home office, master bedroom, and upper staircase; and custom wrought iron spindles on all the handrails.
Up the hardwood staircase to the second floor, the eye is drawn towards an architecturally detailed skylight, with both recessed and pot lighting for evening brightness.
The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat showcasing a coffered ceiling with chandelier; an expanse of windows overlooking the backyard; a large walk-in closet; and a 6-pc ensuite with heated marble floors, corner soaker tub, marble and natural stone tile accents, a custom marble-topped vanity, glass shower, and toilet and bidet.
The master retreat has direct access to the adjacent dressing room, which could also be use as a home office, nursery, or a younger child’s bedroom. Pocket doors provide both access to, and privacy from, a 5-pc semi-ensuite finished with a custom marble-topped vanity and natural stone tiles, which is shared with a graciously sized secondary bedroom. Double closets and a private 4-pc ensuite are featured in the remaining bedroom - and completing the upper level is additional closet storage and a laundry area.
The lower level is finished with ceramic and laminate flooring, and features a large living area with a gas fireplace and antique mantle; pot lighting; a kitchenette; and a double door walk up to the backyard. A bonus room off the living area could be used as an additional bedroom, and has direct access to a 3-pc semi-ensuite.
The lower level also features plenty of storage space, a second laundry area, a pantry room, and direct access to the garage.
A stunning home, in a much sought-after neighbourhood - highly rated schools, parks, the TTC, and Avenue Road shopping and restaurants are all close at hand, with access to the 401 just a short drive away.
