If you’re drawn to homes that have a resort-style feel and would enjoy amenities often only found at a great hotel, this gem will definitely pique your interest.
19 Westmount Road in Guelph’s Exhibition Park neighbourhood is a 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home.
Built in the 1960s, it has great curb appeal, with beautifully landscaped gardens and mature trees, an elegant front walkway and a real sense of welcome.
Inside, the home is roomy and spacious. You feel it immediately upon entering with the bright and open foyer.
On your right, step up into a massive living room with a bay window that overlooks the street and a cosy corner fireplace; this space teems with natural light all day. The kitchen has an eat-in area, stainless steel appliances, lots of cabinetry and granite countertops, a tiled backsplash and a built-in wall oven.
Best of all is its functional design. It overlooks another informal living room that is sure to be a gathering space.
There is also a formal dining room on this level; its sliding doors open onto a massive backyard deck. There is also a beautiful laundry room with slate flooring and multiple cabinets.
On the second level you’ll find the primary bedroom with an ensuite bath—a gorgeous spa-like bathroom that comes complete with skylights.
There are another four light and airy bedrooms as well, with one currently set up as a home office, and a main bathroom. Each of the rooms has a big window and receives lots of natural light.
The finished basement is also spacious and bright. It includes a sprawling rec room and a stylish 3-piece bath.
The big draw is the indoor swimming pool and private sauna—the perfect spots to melt away the stress of the day and fully relax at home.
“This is one of the coolest indoor concrete swimming pools I’ve ever seen,” says listing agent Andra Arnold. “You can enjoy and entertain every day of the year in this home, just like it’s the middle of the summer. The gorgeous pool area includes an indoor wet sauna, as well as a changing area and a 3-piece bathroom.”
This home is unquestionably generous in size, with over 4,300 sq ft of living space and amenities you would normally only find in an upscale hotel property.
The location itself is also special. The home is situated on a big lot and surrounded by character. Says Arnold, “Exhibition Park is truly one of the gems in Guelph. With its mature trees, unbelievable architecture and the community of the park itself, it doesn’t get much better than this.”
Exhibition Park is one of the city’s most sought-after neighbourhoods for good reason.
There is a very active community here, with good schools, devoted neighbourhood groups and lots of support for residents.
