This restored and updated Georgian-style home is set in Teddington Park, an affluent residential community in Toronto. Developed from farmland in the 1930s, the leafy green neighborhood is covered in mature trees and borders a golf course.
The stately three-story is in keeping with the historic houses in the area. The red brick home is entered by way of a landscaped semi-circular driveway. Stone steps lead up to a walkway flanked by lawn.
An elaborate wood paneled enclosure topped by ironwork surrounds the front door. Ivy creeps up to the barrel dormer windows of the second floor.
The residence has formal, classical details throughout. The back wall of the tiled foyer takes in views of the rear yard through double French doors with sidelights and a transom window. Crown molding and a chandelier top the room.
Tall windows on either side of a carved stone fireplace bring light into the formal living room, which has inlaid wood floors.
Double doors off the foyer open to the formal dining room, which features wood slat floors, a fireplace with a decorative wood mantel and French doors that access a stone terrace.
The wood-walled office/den has another fireplace, as does the family room, for a total of five in the home.
The eat-in kitchen, with white cabinetry and a breakfast area, is open to the family room. A kitchen peninsula provides bar seating and contains a sink. Another sink is in the center island, which creates additional counter and prep space.
A wall of three sets of French doors with arched transoms unifies the open-plan kitchen and family room space.
A staircase leads to the primary bedroom, which has a six-piece en suite bathroom and dual closets.
The third floor contains three additional bedrooms with back-facing dormer windows for a total of six bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Black shutters frame the windows on the rear side of the house, which has outdoor dining and living terraces.
A swimming pool with a diving board is surrounded by lush greenery, a sunning deck and a covered lounge.
There is on-site parking for up to 11 vehicles.
Toronto Pearson International Airport is about 19 kilometers, or 12 miles, away from the property.
