Welcome to 1733 Westney Road N, a century home customized into a stunning one-of-a-kind modern home featuring Old Ontario revival and heritage-inspired architecture.
Restored by Tribute Homes, this is the site of Ajax’s historic ‘Westglen House’, which was originally built circa 1850 (with additions made in 1890 and 2019), and is situated on a sprawling lot that is almost half an acre in size. The now completely updated modern home showcases 3,918 sq. ft., plus an additional 1,090 sq. ft. for the finished lower level - and Tribute did retain some of the original features of home, such as the main level front and side door entrances, the stone foundation, and two arched windows that can be seen in the upper level hallway and in the master suite’s walk-in closet.
Some of the superb exterior finishes include pre-finished engineered wood siding; composite cedar shake roofing; aluminum railings; a detached double car garage with hydro; two driveways (one off of Westney Road, the other off Alden Square) which can accommodate over ten vehicles; professionally landscaped yards with extensive flagstone, cobblestone pathways, garden beds, and trees; as well as extensive outdoor living space including two side porches, a wood deck, a side stone patio, a front porch, and a terrace off the master suite.
Some of the stunning interior details include historic-inspired 13” baseboards on the main level; hardwood floors and two hardwood staircases; extensive millwork; vanities with quartz counters, as well as upgraded floor and bath/shower tiles in all the washrooms; pot lights and gorgeous contemporary ceiling light fixtures; generously sized principal rooms; as well an abundance of natural light provided throughout all levels via multiple windows, doors and skylights. In addition, all the new windows throughout the home have been carefully chosen to reflect the size and shape of the original windows, and many have extra-deep window sills.
Off the formal front entrance are the living and dining rooms. Both overlook the front porch, and the living room is also ideal as a home office. The dining room has a gas fireplace surrounded by elegant stonework and finished with a wood beam shelf, while the room’s ceiling has dropped wood beams for a touch of rustic warmth. For entertaining convenience, adjacent to this room is an amazing butler’s servery which also provides direct access into the kitchen.
The servery has a wall-to wall pantry with centre storage shelves and two end units that can be customized with additional shelves, hooks, or the like - and sliding barn doors hide the centre unit while providing convenient access to it. The opposite wall has even more cabinetry storage, as well as a stainless steel under mount prep sink, quartz counters, as well as a stainless steel wine fridge and a built-in Bosch coffee maker with wifi.
The simply stunning gourmet kitchen is a home chef’s delight, and this incredibly functional work area showcases extensive cabinetry and four wood display shelves; quartz counters with a breakfast bar at the peninsula; a farmhouse sink; as well as high-end stainless steel appliances including a built-in wall oven and microwave, an oven with range hood and 6-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, and a side-by-side fridge/freezer - and the kitchen is open to both the breakfast area and the Great Room.
A gorgeous entertaining space, the Great Room has the coziness of a gas fireplace surrounded by stone tiles and finished with a wood mantle shelf. As well as two French door walk-outs onto the side deck. The breakfast area has a sloped ceiling, and off this space is another French door walk-out onto a side porch.
The informal, everyday use side entry opens into a foyer space with a double coat closet, and stone tiles laid in a herringbone design that is carried into the adjacent powder room - and the main level is complete with a laundry room featuring built-in cabinetry, counter folding space and a stainless steel under mount sink, a window bench seat, as well as an LG front load washer and steam dryer.
The upper level showcases a walk-in linen closet off the hallway; a common use 4-pc washroom with a skylight and a bath/shower combo; as well as four bedrooms, all finished with cozy Berber broadloom.
The second and third bedrooms both have sloped ceilings and double closets - while the fourth bedroom is an ideal guest suite or second master bedroom, and features two double closets and a 3-pc ensuite washroom with a glass shower.
The stunning master suite showcases a walk-in closet with an original window - as well as a luxurious ensuite washroom with a skylight, a glass shower, and a freestanding soaker tub - both off the hallway before even entering the bedroom. The bedroom itself is a sunken room with sloped ceilings and two double closets, and extra-tall French doors with interior privacy blinds open onto a sprawling balcony with iron railings.
The lower level is incredibly spacious, is finished with luxury vinyl click stone core flooring and pot lighting throughout, has multiple windows for abundant natural light, a spa-like 4-pc washroom, and offers amazing storage - including a cold cellar, and a large unfinished room that can also double as a workshop. Its huge recreation area offers distinct spaces for games and entertainment, conversation, or family TV watching, and has a separate walk-up entrance to backyard. This level also has an impressive vintage wine/cigar cellar that showcases the original stone foundation, a wood ceiling and accent wall, and ventilation to the outside (enjoy those imported cigars!)
This home also includes two gas furnaces, two central air conditioners, an HRV system, a natural gas line for a barbecue, two garage door openers, is pre-wired for security cameras, has 200 AMP service, and a tankless hot water system currently rented with ENERCARE - as well as an ENERCARE Smarter Home Package featuring a Smart Home hub, two smart thermostats, three smart light switches, two leak sensors, two video doorbells, one smart door lock, and HVAC perforce monitoring.
