When people come through this home, they’re impressed that it has “everything”. They also comment about how spacious it is, and about the custom work and materials that have been used throughout, says listing agent Daniel Bloch of Harvey Kalles Real Estate.

The stone-and-stucco home, built in 2013, has “everything on one’s wish list,” says co-listing agent Liora Tal-Bloch. “It’s designed for a lifetime of enjoyment and entertaining”. It has about 4,600 square feet of living space including formal living and dining rooms with molded ceilings and hardwood floors. The diningroom also has an impressive side table/wet bar topped with striped marble. “The dining room is built for large family gatherings,” Bloch says. Marble also tops the centre island in the kitchen, which has quartz countertops on the perimeter walls, high-end appliances and a custom canopy-style range hood. “The kitchen is timeless,” Tal-Bloch says.

“I love that there is a fireplace on every level with areas where you cansit and enjoy the warmth,” Bloch says. “I also love the high waffled ceilings”. Coffered ceilings and glass doors are features of the main-floor office. The master suite has a walk-in closet, a gas fireplace and spa-like ensuite bath with freestanding soaker tub underneath a chandelier. A gas fireplace warms the lower-level recreation room/kitchen. The entertainment room has a large projection screen, theatre seating and built-in speakers.The house will appeal to a large family that’s looking for a forever home. “It’s an entertainer’s dream,” with a backyard that includes a pool, hot tub and covered outdoor fireside living room and built-in outdoor kitchen. The 51×176-foot, irregular lot, is “perfectly laid out,” Bloch says. Along with the pool, it has a waterfall feature, cabana, an outdoor bathroom and shower.

“Mill Pond/Heritage Estates is located between Yonge and Bathurst. Thearea dates back as far as 1935, with an assortment of homes,” he says. “This home is in a newer subdivision for the area, with offers a variety of walking/nature trails and parks throughout. People want to live here for the proximity to great amenities, restaurants and schools”.
