Properties like this RARELY become available & it’s almost unheard of to find one that has all that this home has to offer. Situated on 8.53 spacious & PRIVATE acres, this beautiful EXECUTIVE RANCH HOUSE sits nestled within a border of mature trees, shrubs & boulders. The moment you drive through the gates & up the gently winding driveway to your private oasis, you can’t help but relax. A large covered front veranda welcomes you to the home & stepping inside, you will appreciate the soaring vaulted ceilings, large windows that allow light to stream throughout the home & the combination of modern touches with timeless classic style. This home was EXTENSIVELY RENOVATED in 2017 & there is very little that hasn’t been upgraded & updated. The front family room is the perfect place to relax in front of the fireplace with soapstone surround & the dining room also shares this fireplace, providing the perfect setting for cozy, intimate dinners. The chef in the family will love the kitchen, with it’s distressed hickory cabinets, granite counters, 2 wall ovens, a stove with 3 gas & 2 induction burners, & walk-through pantry with upright freezer. The long island is perfect for a family that likes to cook or bake & is ideal as a buffet when entertaining. If a BBQ is in order, the covered back deck, built with Batu hardwood, is just off the kitchen. The breakfast nook with built-in hutch overlooks the backyard & is a great spot to watch the birds in the bird feeders. Off the nook is a 2nd family room with wood-burning fireplace - just the right place to catch your favourite show. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, including the master bedroom with huge walk-in closet & SPA-INSPIRED ensuite with heated floors, striking vessel tub, dual sinks with marble counters & large walk-in shower. Laundry is located on this floor, as is a home office with built-in work stations. The walkout was designed with fun in mind - whether playing a game of pool in the rec room with wood-burning stove, settling in for movie night in the media room - check out the bar with under-lit onyx counters - or working out in the exercise room. And if you would like to relax, the hot tub is the perfect spot & is surrounded by brand-new decking. If the attached triple garage isn’t large enough for the cars, toys or hobbies, the enormous 6,300 SQUARE FOOT SHOP will do the trick! The shop is ideal for storing your car collection, recreation vehicles, or it could be a craftsman's dream shop - the possibilities are endless! It has slab heat, floor drains, forced air for back-up or recovery heat & is plumbed for a bathroom. Next to the shop, a SKATING/HOCKEY RINK with boards & overhead lighting has been constructed, & the skate shack can be included - so much fun for kids & adults alike. Behind the shop are natural fields - lots of room if you have horses. This is truly a UNIQUE property - you will not find another one like it - especially with city amenities literally MINUTES away. This home is one of a kind!
